Indeed you might be right. Open dynamic drivers have a technical limitation of not being able to produce linear deep bass like orthos and stats. Nothing a little EQ can't fix though. I suspect there is where the real future lies. The combination of corrective software and light easy to drive/wireless headphones....
 Planars can be made much lighter and more efficient than today. The T50RP is 330 grams and if Sennheiser really put some effort with new lightweight materials and drivers with a slender design (looking at you MA900) I have no doubt they could make a planar at 250g. Perhaps even under 200 some day with some new lightweight type of driver. Planars obviously need to get higher sensitive in order to be ultimate with any weak source. The LCD-X is 22 ohm and 96 dB so already...
I have found "Rhythm Is A Dancer" to be the perfect song when calibrating Isone. Not kidding.
 That is another way of saying I will buy these.
I find the RE-400/600 to be the V-Moda M-80 version of an in-ear. Not the most exciting sound with it's mid-centric qualities and way too polite treble. Maybe it's a sound that works with specific genres like Asian style vocal music(I don't listen to that stuff so maybe someone will correct me here)  but for pop, rock, classical and all-round it doesn't work for me. No real sense of power. The RE262 was an even bigger disappointment for me. Dull sound + painful vacuum...
[[SPOILER]]  Here are my honest impressions.Thank you james444 for the loaner. This is what a headphone community is all about. I will probably repay the favour some day.
Still don't understand who you don't want to use a miniature DAC/Amp for your already easy to drive LCD-XC. TH900 will not really be an upgrade to the XC in SQ. It will be a lot lighter and comfortable though.

Thanks for the reply. Any more comment about the sound? Neutral and soundstage being record dependent is rather vague.. What's neutrality seem to be under evolution in headphones and depending from person to person. I would personally not categorize any Etymotic as sounding neutral even though I heard them being described in those terms. How is clarity and detail extraction? Bass extension and impact? Any harshness? Maybe a comparison to other in-ears would bring more...
I couldn't care less about a picture to prove he really have the phone. I want some reports on the signature, soundstage, quality of sound and construction, microphonics, isolation and comfort.  Saying they sound epic is not good enough. Very tempted to pull the trigger. Maybe they will be better than the IE800 for less money. Let's hope. At least the spare tips won't be 60 dollars a pair.
