Default Anyone heard the Turbo XS vs Cobb catback for 2008 + WRX Hatch?

So, like the title states, has anyone heard both the Turbo XS catback and Cobb catback on a new age WRX hatch? I'm pretty much on the fence between the two.

Is one louder than the other? Raspier? Seems like the Turbo XS might be raspier but it's hard to judge when it's not the same person taking the video or the same camera (You Tube)

TXS one is louder, not raspier, and has no cabin drone.

I had the txs on my 09 hatch and it was on the loud side, but there was zero rasp. I got rid of it for an SPT, since I wanted something quieter.

I had the TXS cat-back for a while then decided to upgrade and added their downpipe and racepipe. I did enjoy the sound of it even when it was just the cat-back. Adding the DP and racepipe didn't really change the sound all too much either. I'm now fully catless with a 4" DP and 3" the rest of the way back . I will mention that it does have some highway drone at higher speeds otherwise it's a great sounding exhaust.

I have the COBB on my '09 and there is no drone and the volume and note are perfect for my liking.

Any chance you had a previous generation WRX with a Cobb Catback/ turbo back too? I had the Cobb TBE and I thought it was the perfect volume.

Where'd you get it from? I'm thinking of going through Oakos...
