We're in just the same boat, for some reason I felt like coming and browsing and head-fi a few days ago, remembered all the Westone 3 hype that was abound a year ago when I picked out my Denon C700, and became engrossed with all the positive reviews. The only thing was the price... 30% Live cashback on ebay purchases!? Problem solved. Purchased my pair today, too bad I couldn't get the 10% paypal discount to work -- told me I had to explicitly receive the offer. Oh well, hope to enjoy these in a few days and will post impressions.
