Love the feel and sound
While I love the tone of round-wound strings, I also love the feel of flat-wound strings. I grabbed a set of these HALF-ROUND strings for my new bass in hopes of having the best of both worlds. So far, so good. And, I'm hoping to get a good life-span from them, but only time will tell. With the D'Addario brand's long legacy, you can't go wrong. Thanks D'Addario for offering this best-of-both-worlds set of strings!
Unfortunately this set wasnt consistent from Syria g to string. The A and G strings were bright and punchy as expected. Yet the E and D strings were flat and sounded as if they were from another set. The sales staff was very helpful in replacing the set with round wounds
Recently played a P Bass with HW Strings XL , so I have to try them. They are GREAT strings for solid bass sounds.
Love the feel, and sound of these strings
These strings minimize "string sound" w/out being as mellow as flat wounds. Although my local Sam Ash didn't stock them, "ship to store" was free & fast. Local store guitar tech, Lucien, did a great set-up using them - now plays great!

Not everybody plays like, say Larry Graham on the one end, or John Entwistle on the other, where a true round-wound string is needed full-time. Enter D-Addatrio Half-Rounds. I love them because they create a sort of "middle ground" between a round- and flat-wound string. For me, dialing the tone control on my bass, enables me to emulate a flat-wound sound, which for my purposes, I play more often; but tone up full treble, and I get that percussive attack, when needed. Best of all, they're not as likely to chew up the frets as quickly as true round-wounds; which is especially important, since I only have one bass.

I got these half rounds on a whim. I needed a new set and these looked like they would be a good choice, and they are great. I dont normaly do reviews of strings but I have to say these are smooth, almost like a flatwound. But they still have the tone and cut that I need in modern music. If your like me and have to play in a studio or stage for hours check these out. I still have this same set on my guitar after 7 months of playing everyday. When I need a new set I will get these half rounds again. Oh and if you wash your hands before you play, your strings will last for a long, long time.
