Can anyone offer anything that proves that wrong?
The LCD-3s are OPEN headphones, they're supposed to leak like a sieve.
I find the TH-900s isolate better than the D7000s (owned them twice) and more importantly for my wife, they leak out sound very little. Better than the Ed.8s and W3000s (used to own both).

If you like Bass so i think TH 900 and LCD-3 is good choice and if you like bigger soundstage TH900 will be better for you cause the soundstage is larger
Personal preference is one thing, technical merit of the drivers is something else....sorry, the LCD-3s are better in that regard. And sound staging on the LCD-3s is a smidge larger on the GS-X MKII. Pump in about 8W into 50 ohms and they open up (like all orthos).
