The medium acoustic strings add more volume and enhanced tone to my acoustic guitar. They are consistent from package to package, and from years of playing them have only had two instances of the high e string breaking at the ball end during initial tuning.
Like the package says, warm, bright and balanced tone. The medium gauge definitely add an acoustic boost to my guitar, although they are just a bit more difficult to finger, and do cause my acoutic to "belly" below the bridge after prolonged use, so I switch back to "lights" occasionally.
I've found D'Addario strings to be consistent in tone, quality package after package.
Good bang for the buck.

I've played D'Addario's since 1981 and have always been pleased, however lately, not so much. Previously playing light rock, folk, and finger style, they've always been reliable, but now having ventured into bluegrass with a much more aggressive attack, they will last for one 3 hour gig. More than that and they're dead and they'll break. Sometimes at the saddle, sometimes at the fret, other times at the tuner post if changing pitch too much. I will continue to use them until I find a suitable replacement because I don't want to fuss with the guitar's setup right now.

          I've used the D'Addario EJ17 strings for many years, and have always liked their tone, crispness and endurance. I play them a little bit hard, and they last longer than I would have expected. That is why I continue to use them. Musician's Friend in my normal source for strings, as their prices are tough to beat!

                                I perform in a Bluegrass and a Celtic band with practices between performances. These strings hold tone and sustain greatly ! Their longevity is better than any I have used previously.

                                    I started using these several years ago on Martin and Huss & Dalton dreadnoughts. I mic my guitar with a 57 when performing. The medium gauge yields a very rich tone on or off stage. Unless you bend like BB you'll never break one of these strings. Generally speaking, I can leave a set of these on for three months before changing.

                                    I put these on my low end Brownsville laptop and they transformed the sound. I am very pleased.
