Sorry mate...but having all three here have lead me to my conclusions. I gotta admit after hearing the Stax headphones at meets I wasn't very enthralled. But after I got them home and had many months to get to know them (and get appropriate upfront gear) and compare them with the HD800s, I've come to that conclusion. But again, not to take anything away from the HD800s as they are in my top 4 of all time (with the LCD-X). Your setup is certainly endgame IMHO.
