I have not purchased upgrade cable for HD800 yet still trying to get familiar with them maybe I will buy an adapter to use with HM901 later... Just too many "to buy"

I would be using them with lcd2s anyway, so I guess thats easier to drive

I have AK100 C4Pro and DX100. All run my HD800'S to very loud levels.
The AK100 is a 12 hour battery life. It needs specific phones to work really well and is disappointing with my westone w4rs for instance. The UI is easy to operate. The shuffle works ok. It takes 2 64 GB SD cards and has 32 GB internal. It is tiny in comparison with the other 2. I got a nice leather case for it bought seperately which should protect it from a drop. It charges through USB. It takes an overnight to fully charge.

The C4 Pro is a 6-7 hour battery life. It is the more neutral sounding of the 3 . It is happy with any of my phones. It has less storage- 64 GB in total including the SD card. It is a pain to use on shuffle which will involve a while dragging and dropping from folders on your pc to the root of your sd card. The UI means it is more laborious to find a particular track. It comes with a leather case which should protect it from a drop. It is the longest and widest of the 3. It charges through USB. It takes a long time to charge which can be improved by using a USB mains plug.

The DX100 is a 4 hour battery life, if you go into the Android settings and switch everything off. You have to do this every time. It is my favourite sounding of the 3. It's happy with any of my phones. It takes a lot of patience to get the contents of the SD Card recognised by the UI. When you add to the SD card this still happens but it always sorts itself in the end. Thereafter shuffle works fine. It comes with no case and I've yet to find one in Europe specifically for it. I have mine in a transparent plastic film which will not protect it from a drop. It's the thickest of the 3. It doesn't charge by USB it's mains only. It's by far the fastest charging of the 3.

As for music I listen to this is what I don't listen to much of; jazz , dance, opera, soul, thrash, rap, blues.

My favourite music is Rock my favourite decade is the 80s and my favourite musical discovery of the last month was Imagine Dragons.

Hope this helps
