I started using Eminence when I bought a VHT also. I've sense sold the VHT and moved to Budda, but still use Eminence. I prefer them to pretty much everything I've used. I simply find them warmer then celestions, less aggressive sounding.
I don't find they sound at all like celestions. You need to try them b/f you buy.
Just another one of those personal opinion things... pretty much like everything in the signal path between your fingers and your ears.
