 What's wrong with plain black? Sure it's kinda thick and the stickers are kinda ugly, but even before those fade out they barely jump out from the black.
 It will work for stereo but not for virtual surround DSP.
 If the speakers are on your desk, putting the midwoofer at elbow level, and you can hear all the sound below you or some sounds are misaligned along the Y-axis (eg female vocals and cymbals that sound like they're above all the other instruments). That's just one scenario and the results aren't guaranteed considering that dispersion angles, toe-in, and reflections in a room can make for a lot of variances. You may have them below ear level but for example if you're...
 Usually what specs you find on computer audio gear barring pro recording interfaces have a lot more in common with what you will find listed on the back of a Blu Ray than whatever you can expect to find in an audio store selling obscure stereo gear with different formats like DSD/SACD, or high-res. Sometimes video/gaming-centric audio gear can't read 24-bit audio beyond 48khz sampling frequency (DVD-A), for example a bunch of DVDPs before had "Burr Brown 24-bit, 96khz...
 Note that what you see in an FR graph isn't always what it sounds like. Each ear has some variances (though if healthy enough or the canal isn't very wide off the average size, it wouldn't be too far off the average), and then there's the test set-up. Suspending an earphone then putting a mic between them isn't the same as when the earpads are compressed against your head and the sound goes through the ear canal. Even the alignment of the driver relative to the ear canal...
Anything with an inline remote can limit the volume, the problem is your toddler will likely touch that control anyway. What devices are you going to use with it? Maybe there's some kind of setting there or in the player app to limit the volume setting.
 You'll need something else besides zero lag: if you're going to use an outboard DAC it should be able to receive a signal already processed with DSP with virtual surround. What are your computer specs? Your motherboard probably has a Dolby Headphone-compatible on board sound system, and barring very high impedance headphones, it should be able to power headphones well enough without an amp. You can then use the X3 for music on its own or as a DAC. Don't worry too much...
 Er, that's exactly what I said...that you have the X3 anyway, but you haven't even tried the HD600 on them yet.
 But what source will he compare it with? Assuming there's some kind of DSP he can't find or the analog circuit on the motherboard has been tweaked like some people put Moon (or Sun) instead of Earth, then in such a case the same warm sound will just go through the same amp. 
 Oh yeah, I was thinking more along the lines of a totally Army/Air Force engagement. Forgot how long the range of cruise missiles are that even if it's a ground war like Cold War scenarios for Europe, ships can go into the sea past Denmark to hit naval installations and airfields all the way to Leningrad (unless the Soviets were able to get through Finland and Sweden first), followed by close in air support from the fighters.  Still, it's amazing how even old and simple...
