Help: DT-350 (rare V5 "maxon" bridge pickup)

I keep seeing that those old stock Ibanez V5 dual blade pickups made by Maxon are THE BEST and most sought after within the whole line, but I haven't found ANY real info on them besides "they sound amazing".

So WHAT are the tonal characteristics? What other pickups are they close to?
How do they compare to let's say an X2N? How do they compare to the Tone Zone?

People say they measure 16kohm which would lead me to think that they are fairly high output and somewhat dark?

Help please!
