Thanks for the replys, might have to look into some customs then. Have some shure se535's but the only time I use them on the go is at the gym, they're just lacking overall compared to my full sized cans.
I've also tried the Ed 8's they're not for me, a tad too harsh and the s logic doesn't quite work for my ears.
Cable length, size and rain aren't a problem I always have a duffle bag or backpack on the go so plenty of room for storage and an umbrella plus I was going to get a shorter set of cardass clears if I purchased the XC.
Would you say the XC is far behind in isolation? If its not too much difference I think for my purposes the trade off would be worth it for the improvement since they'll be my only cans for a month. I'll be driving them off a CLAS dB and an ALO MK 3B+.
As for the muggers haven't had problems dealing with them with my T5P's and fortunately most people down here wouldn't know what they are or what they're worth...
Plus having a 3rd dan in karate, 1st fan in taekwando, brown in judo plus training in boxing, kendo and muay thai doesn't hinder things. And I can usually just talk my way out
