Formula 602 cymbals produce a true, pure sound of unique clarity.
These hats come from a legendary cymbal line for soft, delicate to medium-loud volume settings that require precise playing that was relaunched in 2010.
Rich, silvery, bright, somewhat mellow. Wide range, fairly complex mix. Quick and responsive feel with a soft and warm touch. Very controllable. Full, round and energetic open sound, paired with a light and airy chick sound. Ideal for playing at moderate volume level and a wide range of studio applications.

Comments about Paiste Formula 602 Series Sound Edge Hi-Hats:
These hi hats work perfectly for soft, quiet music, to medium loud, rock music.
I listened to a Death Cab for Cutie album (Codes and Keys), and Jason McGerr's hi hats sounded like nothing I've ever heard.
So I did some research, and he plays the Paiste 14" medium 602 classic sounds hi hats. These sound edge hats are very similar, but I like them more because the "wavy" bottom hat adds a new level of sensitivity and breathiness.
I play a 22" Zildjian K Light Ride and an 18" Zildjian Armand Medium Thin Crash. These hats go very well with them.
I would suggest however, that you buy your hats from the store, so you can hear them first, as all cymbals are unique instruments.
