That's exactly what i say, cry once, that's enough
I'm looking for a clear, slightly warmish sound with good bass with absolutely zero distortion. It has to be a "musical" sound and they should be kind of genre master (at the moment i mainly listen to all kind of Folk, Pop, Indie, a lot of Stockfisch Records) As far as i'm reading your review, the 8.A's should be my route to go. What's also important that they pair well with the DX100, i'm not planing to use an external amp tough.
My DX100 is already in Switzerland, should get it finally on monday! (Great job DHL!)
Have you seen my signature? DX100 + 8.A is magical... and I do believe the 8.A is exactly what you need. Musical and capable of handling ANYTHING you throw at them. They sound like the best of the LCD-2, HE-500 and D7000 all in one.
Oh and they're $300 off right now, $975 in stead of the usual $1299. Still a hefty chunk of cash, but less than I paid...
