Disappointed

For the record, I'm not expert. I've renewed my interest in the guitar recently (after 30 years). I have a new good quality (but not custom) acoustic that I am having a great time with. I'm trying out different strings. It came with some custom Martin's of some kind that sounded great, but began to be a bit flat after three weeks. I ordered some Martin Acoustic SP 80.20 (custom lights and lights) that are modest in cost. I also ordered a set of Martin Lifespan SP Extra lights. They were nearly twice the cost of the others. I expected them to be the bomb. But the question was whether the price differential would be worth it.Yesterday, I retired my first set of regular SPs and put on the Lifespan Sp set, expected to be favorably impressed. What a surprise -- I was not! The lowest base strings sound off and dull to me. The others are ok, but not great. The high E (1st string) broke on the install (to be fair, the are extra lights, and so far my experience is that those light gauges are simply very delicate. So I'm holding that against my stringing technique and not this genre of Martin strings). Otherwise, the trebles seem fine.But the bass strings have me put off. I am not impressed. For me, these strings are not worth the extra cost. Maybe they last longer. But longer lasting strings that sound off are not my standard.I'm going to try others, and other brands. But for now, I'm headed back to the Martin Acoustic SPs, which were bright, had good play, and seemingly good lifespan (I replaced them before I would have if I hadn't been anxious to trying out the Lifespan SPs).
Music background: Novice, but I've got a decent ear
