i would worry more about if you will like the general signature, sibilance should not be a big problem for edition 8. It is far from sibilant, at least it was for me, but it has a different sound signature than what you would expect, and it is supposed to be on ear. these are more important than sibilance.
LCD3 is the least sibilant headphone that exists. Hifiman headphones are not sibilant in general.
If you are very sensitive to sibilance, you might want to stay with LCD and hifiman headphones. Sennheiser hd650 is far from sibilant.
