  Usually, yes.   One year (about 2 years ago) we had a guy who insisted on putting the headphones on your head for you.  Definitely not worth bringing gear if you're that paranoid*.  (You in general.)     *Unless you're bringing HE-90s.  I will let you put them on my head for me.  
Thanks for posting your notes.  It's odd that the 33hz rated 88s didn't go as low as the Harbeths, but given that you listen to the LL + SR009 on a daily basis, I don't doubt your ability to pick up on how low the bass is going.  Maybe it's rated off, or maybe the decay times have something to do with it.     Btw, I like your wife(ish)'s description of the Leben.
  Cool.  Could you post your demo impressions of all three in the 'pics of your high end rig' thread?  It's a bit more conducive to that discussion than this one.  IIRC people were following your pre-demo thoughts on that thread anyway.
Might as well put the rent or mortgage into the calculation then.  
Twsmith, agreed wholeheartedly.  The SD option is certainly the most resolving.  I prefer it as the reference standard in my rig, but when I'm lazy to upload a new CD, the Cambridge/optical combination sounds really good, almost analogue-like but without the precision of SD.  Like I said, it's a more cohesive presentation where you have trouble pin pointing things, but the whole room just fills with the music.  Will have to try out the adapter at some point but for now,...
  That's awesome. 
UPDATE: This is sold.
Selling my Westone UM3X.  Had these for a few months now, great condition.  Have a number of tips (I think 4-5 sets).  Case, airplane adapter, cleaning tool all included.  Don't know warranty information (I bought them used).  I will ship USPS Priority small flat rate box (original box doesn't fit that box so it's not included.  This costs $5.35 in the US.  Shipping covered by buyer.  Paypal gift highly preferred or add 2.9%, see my feedback.   PM away.
Just discovered this based on a recommendation: http://www.zoekeating.com/projects.html   Listen to the first three tracks sampled there.  Sublime!
  Oh man, don't even get me started on that one.
