less metal used in the core, for one thing. This is probably a big part of why you often see them used in Eastern Europe during the communist era... labor was probably easier to come by than materials/alloys used in transformer laminations. It's also why they would cut the corners off the laminations... an extra labor step, but saved material.
But in audio terms, they have higher efficiency, lower capacitive coupling, and they can also be wired as humbucking, unlike an E/I core transformer!
