Hey..The biggest difference between round wounds and flats is their sound. Round wounds hava a bright sound, while flats are more "dead." Rounds tend to be the most popular strings, and can be made to sound prtty flat with an eq. Flats are more common on fretlesses and with people looking for an acoustic tone. roung wounds arent as advisable for fretless, as they eat fretboard.
