I'm assuming you've been up close to a wrx/sti with catback on it and heard it, for the most part your car will sound just like that, i've heard it first hand, and this is what were all looking for

I'm going to try to take a sound clip tonight or tomorrow morning with the v2 prototype. It's going on a 06 2.5i with a sti catback with a Magnaflow muffler. Do you guys want it with a cat pipe, or cat delete pipe?

It can sometimes have a tin can sound also my friends 05 didn't have either of them on and it back fired alot, that may have also of been because he had three inch piping and not enough pressure

Disclaimer; this is a terrible vid and doesn't do these headers justice. I hesitated to even post it, but it's all I have right now. Just as an experiment, I installed it with a cat delete pipe I made. Too much rasp for my taste, but that's pretty much what I was expecting. I had about a minute to shoot the vid. The car was cold. Sorry for the poor quality and background clutter.

This is a better example of what you can expect the headers to sound like. This vid is of the v1 prototype with the same catback and the factory cat pipe. The v2 should sound similar. This clip gives me goose bumps

I like this sound clip doesn't seem too rasp filled you should def get a in-car video up.
