Just got them of Ebay for $1299,-, using the "make an offer" option at one of the seller's.

Just ordered the XC. I've decided to do the comparison myself.

$1299 is a good price.

Are they available to ship or is it a pre-order?

On the Audez'e website, it says the XC will be shipped November 1. I guess it's a pre-order.

900 is nothing like the XC, they won't be going against them in any meaningful way.

They're both closed and in similar price range for starters. Even though early indications state the headphone won't sound the same doesn't mean there isn't a worthwhile comparison.

I'm just saying, after hearing both, that that's where the comparisons end. I'm sure it will be useful to people to have a comparison review because of the price/closed aspect, but I can't think of more different sound sigs.

I understand where you are coming from. I think any comparisons are useful for members here that can't hear these headphones for themselves. A comparison allows them to further define exactly what they want and to make a more informed buying leap. The HD800, HE-6, and LCD-3 are constantly compared and they all sound drastically different, IMO.

You're right the comparisons are useful and essential if you can't hear them. I guess I was more thinking if someone is serious about one of these hp's, I couldn't imagine them being on the fence between the two. But they need to understand them enough to get to that point, hence the comparisons.

Why not?  If I haven't heard either - this would in fact put me on the fence - no?

 

Besides - anything can and will be compared - This is head fi.
