Oh gosh darn. After my cans get delivered at my house, you tell me. Got confirmation that the cans work so far from my parents. Got another month before I can be stateside though...long wait is going to be long.

Well, finally got time to sit down with my HA-DX3 after getting back from China. I would have gotten more time to listen if it weren't for the fact that I got delayed for three hours at Newark International, waiting in my plane outside my gate for some crappy weather to move out. After several months of listening to the HD595, I was pretty surprised at how close the DX3 sounded. Not sure why but it just seems like the bass amount, mids and highs were about equal out of my X-Fi XtremeMusic (for now, anyway). The DX3 definitely sounds closed though but surprisingly enough, it has just a bit more detail than the HD595. Interesting...very interesting. Soundstage isn't nearly as big though but open can vs closed obviously.
In terms of comfort, I think the DX3 is closest to my cousin's Audio Technica AD700 I pilfered for a week and a half. Unlike the AD700 though, the pads aren't itchy while the clamping force remains very light. It doesn't make my head hurt like the RX700 and RX900 do and it also doesn't have a pressure point under my ear like my HD595. My ears don't get hot and that's very good for a closed headphone. It's a keeper so far.
