It's been a while since I owned the 780s, but IIRC, the the 780s are pretty much mostly highs and punchy bass. Not much between the two extremes. The A900X are far better balanced and have a far superior midrange. I think the soundstage is excellent on the A900X, too. They're a bit warmer overall. The highs probably seem quite toned down from the 780s if you were to listen to them back to back, but I think they're more natural. The fit is kind of wonky, but they're definitely more comfortable than the 780s (all clampy and hard foam/pleather).
