Klipsch custom 3's has a wider soundstage but worse instrumental separation than the HJE900's. Both are good in bass and midrange, with the custom3's maybe a tad less detailed than the HJE900's in the treble. Priorities are you own choice.
If your music is 128kbps, I'd go with custom's. If better, HJE's will be just fine.
