It is most certainly NOT that time of year again (yet). There are still many, many warm days to come this year. But thank you from the bottom of my wool long johns for the reminder...there, got that off my chest!
Now, I can't speak to the 700c studded tires you mention, but I can speak to winter commuting in general. First, studs do nothing in snow--they're meant for ice. They don't detract from snow performance, but they don't add anything to snow performance, either, and offer nothing but weight and noise and decreased cornering traction on pavement. So, since winter road conditions change daily here, anything you try will be a compromise.
If you're mainly worried about snow, and seldom encounter ice, studs really aren't necessary. There are two schools of thought re snow commuting. Some run narrow tires to cut through it to the street, some run fat, low pressure tires to float over it. It depends on the prevailing conditions where you live. Powdery stuff, try to cut through it with skinnies--crusty stuff might be better to try and float over with fatties. Mostly pavement with occasional icy patches, run the minimal studs for low weight and rolling resistance, and a bit of security over the ice.
I've run Mount and Ground studded 26er's on my commuters the last couple of winters and they've been ok. Fat, aggressive knobbies worked as well or better seasons past in snow, but the occasional icy patch encouraged me to switch to the studded tires. Skinny slicks work well in light, powdery stuff. It's really a crap shoot at least some days every winter! I only live two miles from work, so sometimes I just walk or even cross country ski.
Have you read Peter White's studded tire essay? It's pretty informative: http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/studdedtires.asp
And if you find the perfect tire for all winter conditions, pleas post up!
Sometimes the squeaky wheel gets replaced.
