Why?  
  Only you can decide if it is worth it, right?  The upgrades do make the Pulse Xfi better in theory, but as your friend pointed out, we might not hear the differences.  And each person will hear those differences differently and to different extents and will have to assign their own dollar values to those differences.  Curiosity got the best of me, so I ordered both a Pulse X and an Xfi so I could compare them myself.  I will sell off whichever one presents the least...
This is Head-Fi! Do it anyways!
Got my LPS yesterday after a shipping notification on Friday.  So stuff is definitely shipping.  I have a Pulse X and and Xfi ordered as a super early backer, but don't expect those to ship til end of the year.  
If you are just trying to mod the stock cable, I doubt any of the pros like Frank are going to do it.  Not worth their time.  You could post in the FS forum and see if there is a DIYer local to you.  The work is simple enough, so anyone with a nice gallery of DIY cables should be able to handle it.  Whether you trust them with a $1200 headphone is another matter.
For now :)  I haven't found a flagship that is perfect for me, so the HD650 is my favorite standby until someone makes a flagship that is perfect.  
Very, very different headphones.  Definitely a win for the Z7 when it comes to comfort and build quality, but the HE-6 is superior in pretty much everything else.  Personally, the HE-6 is a little too hot in the treble for me, which is why I never got a pair after auditioning one for a couple weeks, so the Z7 is a more pleasant listen for me.  Like Claritas mentioned, it does sound at times that the soundstage on the Z7 can wrap around you to the back.  I THINK it might...
I actually only listened to the Ragnarok, as I am 99% sure I'd never get a GSX. Even the Ragnarok is more than I want to spend on an amp for this hobby, but after hearing what it could do with the HD650s, I might have to reconsider. It is the best I have heard my HD650s sound and they have been plugged into a lot of amps.I also enjoyed the Sony Z7s quite a bit but need to play around with damping them to tame the bass bloom. Supremely comfortable. So much so I...
Thanks to Keith for setting this up, and for all who came and share their gear.  Great to hear the Ragnarok and other gear I have had my eyes one.  Always fun to see you guys in real life.  
We're you going to bring it for listening still?If someone wants to buy my Bottlehead S.E.X. at the meet, then I could give you a better idea of my interest
