2nd Gen XBA Series, XBA10, 20, 30 and 40.

Ok so I am getting the XB90EX Dynamic for super bass but I want a contrast, I want a nice balanced sound to compliment them, I currently have the XBA3 and think its really good but it might not be the most balanced per say.

 

This review caught my eye:

He seems to really like the 10 and 20 and even calls the 20 the best of the bunch, its interesting because popular opinion is that the 1 and 3 are the best when it comes to the original line, I am curious what peoples beef was with the XBA2 as I have heard it was the worst of the original bunch.

 

So yea I want the XB90EX for head thumping bass but which should I pick of these in contrast? I also have the XBA1 and compared to my XBA3 it has a more relaxed sound and is more balanced but I hear more detail in the 3, there is also the XBA-C10 which seems to be like the XBA1/10.

Also can anyone tell me if there is a noticable difference with the XBA3 to the 30?
