I'd give them a try, that's the only way you're going to know if you'll like them for sure.
If you don't, no great loss in the effort to find out.
You'll be better informed after all is said and done.
Leave them on for a while; don't just quickly swap them out if they don't strike you as something you'd normally go for. Give yourself enough time to let them settle in and to give you a few days or so to listen and tune them so you've gotten the most out of the effort. You can always re-head the kit with what you had on there before.
