I can't comment on their longevity as yet, as I've only had them on the guitar a couple of days, but everything else EB claim about them is true, so I'd imagine they'll be right about that too.

They sound much crisper and louder than standard Super Slinky's, with pretty intense sustain.
They bend really easily, you can happily bend with one finger, even on the 2nd fret. As I discovered the first time I played "Are you gonna go my way?"
They're supposed to feel "soft" and "silky." Well, I'm not sure about that, but they don't seem as hard as standard strings. My fingertips are so calloused it's a bit hard to tell tho ;)

I normally buy the nickel-wound hybrid slinkys and thought these would be worth a try. It's hard to describe, but they play really well and it seems easier to slide up and down the neck.

... it's worth noting that these still haven't made me a good guitarist :-)

Colour Name: 1 PackSize: 2721 Regular Slinky 10-46 Verified Purchase
Tried these out on my Les Paul studio, used daily for teaching/playing, as fed up with rust spotted E Ball slinkys. These Cobalts give a wonderful clean sound that doesn't drop off - they stay bright. They are so different from regular E Ball/Fender strings I generally use, had trouble finding my 'sound' at first - reset the clean sound on the amp to flat - only now after a few months have I boosted this a bit - these strings last. Recommend if you're gigging and in the habit of changing strings often - reckon you won't need to as often - nice even feel and sound too.

On overdrive sounds I struggled for a while as couldn't get my default sound - they are different so you may need to play around with your eq or pedals, may not be an issue on your amps anyway. But overall worth experimenting with. If I were gigging regularly playing mainly clean sounds, e.g. jazz, funk etc wouldn't hesitate to fit them!

Ernie Ball are always coming up with new and inventive ideas.

Cobalts are just amazing I placed these strings on my guitar around 6 months ago and haven't yet had to change them (I am in a hard rock band and these get a fair deal of punishment).

the way the strings are made mean they do not rust and they stay in tune with minimum fuss.

I'm not sure if its the way i play or the strings but i haven't managed to snap one yet either (the other reason i haven't changed them) and everything still sounds amazing.

the only downside there was upon their release (i'm not sure this is still applicable) was that they were a little more expensive than standard strings.

also all cobalt strings came (again not sure if still relevant) in the same colour packet making it hard to tell at a glance what gauge you had.

all in all they are fantastic strings and i will always carry at least an extra set for the day that a string does eventually give in.

These strings are exactly as described. You get ultra bend from them & the sound output seems a lot high than standard steel strings. I'll be sticking with these from now on!

3 star at the moment, because they are more magnetic I had to lower my pickups quite a bit as the pull made the strings go out of tune.
They do sound a little different, and you get a little more clarity, I'm reserving judgement on these until I've played a few gigs!

These are without dout the best strings I have ever used, the tone and high output are truly amazeing .As a blues player these strings give outstanding performance and although they are a bit expensive they are worth every penny. As far as I am concerned they are highly recomended.

These really are a revelation. Great for string bending. Clear, twangy, and very lively. Just what the telecaster's been waiting over 60 years for!! The perfect partner. Will be getting more of these for sure!
