I have not tried the XC but of the other two the AD is one of the best passive isolating hp's out there. I have followed the XC thread and members there report that the AD is better. 

 

gL!!

Better? In terms of weight, comfort, isolation? I have been following the XC thread too and I don't remember anyone mention AD is sonically better than the XC. Care to quote the source?

Not sure, but I think @MattTCG may be referring to the quote directly above, related to sound leakage.

Pretty sure that, as aamefford said, Matt is referring to isolation/leakage control and not sound...

Very different sounding. Depending on your taste really. The HD650 is warmer, more intimate, and smoother. The AD is more neutral, and faster, and lively. I'd wager they'd make great compliments to one another. I'd say the AD is more accurate and better defined.

Found meself a good value DAC with HP out for portable use(at least while resting and a stack that can still fit my hands) with the Alpha:). It can drive the AD no problem and at quite low volume adjustment(software).
This thing sounds great for $66(up there in terms of  Price/Perf. Ratio just like the AD) and can do Hi-Res to boot.
Using it like so...........GS3(phone)->UAPP(Usb Audio Player Pro App.)->Xmos DAC(with external batt.)->AD.
I have tried the AD with portable gears I own(O2/ODAC,C5/UD110,D-Zero,Apex Glacier) and the Xmos DAC is my best sounding yet(at least for me).

The downside is you have to feed the DAC power(external 5V batt or DC supply) and it has no physical volume control( I'm using UAPP software volume).

If you live in Germanym, ry to look for cable adaptor from Sennheiser.

Just as a heads up with those adapters. Make sure to buy one that you feel would change the sound signature the least favorably. There are 3 or 4 different ones that use a similar design.  I bought the sennheiser one or some knock off and the material used adds some warmth to the grado sr60is I modified. It may sound obvious to people on here, but I found the difference kind of surprising. Otherwise the adapter itself is a very nice design.
