I personally really like the "ringy" overtones of a steel snare, when paired with the right style of music. I mean, it's not a ton of ring, and when I really get moving through the kit, it actually kinda disappears...
TYBG pretty much nailed it. The hi velocity has a ton of body and still enough ring, the hi energy sounds great and its loud and cutting. both are not the most sensitive heads out there but I was shocked about the sensitivity considering what they are. The best way is to just try them for yourself.
