Nice notes, but fortunately or unfortunately it is probably due to the old Taboo. The MK3 one that I had sounded almost neutral and very snappy, tight, dynamic and super focused. I compared it side by side with the Soloist and it was better hands down with Audeze, no contest, no second thoughts. That said, I have not heard the X, but it should be no surprise given it's said to be even less syrupy and warm sounding than the LCD-3s.
