From memory, (haven't heard in about a yr. a friend useto bring them over all the time) I find that the hd800 to have too much sibilence with female vocals. I also don't like the u shape sound. The mids are a tad recessed compare to the lows and highs. I agree they it has great detail and separation and airiness. For vocals and jazz. I think the LCD-3 are great. I haven't tried the LCD-x much but those could be to your liking. I love my w3000anv also.
