Jealous of what? My hybrids are way better than the AKG3003 ;).

You're probably part of the 1%
I really find the 1P2 and K3003 to be very different from each other and not direct competitors in that one looking for the 1P2 sound really wouldn’t consider the K3003 and vice versa. I see the K3003 more about finesse and precision and the 1P2 more about power, attitude and unadulterated fun.
Shane has a point about the older model being the more fun one. Still I didn't perceive the AKG3003 as being anymore detailed than even that model. I can tell you now though the new model is very neutral and definitely more detailed than the AKG3003, at least to my ears. :P.
I can absolutely say not so for me.
Next year I may have an opportunity to hear one of these supposed systems. Ranging from $500,000 to 2 million dollars. So we'll see ;).
Got to try the AKG k3003 yesterday and was impressed, but not overly so. I can get it for a fantastic price but even at that, I'm not sure if I should wait for the RE-600 or just jump the gun. I would also like to hear the IE800's and know what you guys think of it in comparison.
The k3003 reminded me a lot of the HE-6 if I were to compare. Nowhere near as good as the HE-6 though
If I'd find them for the supposed price of the he-600 I'd jump without thinking twice :D
