Definitely. The other danger is that you'll undermix the upper mids,
since the NS10s are so pronounced (harsh) in that region. 

Beyond that, I don't like working on them because they are extremely
fatiguing to listen to for any extended period of time. I can work for
several hours using my Tannoys, or something like the Mackie monitors,
but NS10s will have my ears burnt in just a few minutes.

But yeah, I have a set. Doesn't everyone? <grin>
