Sony XBA series to cans, would it be a difference?

I am thinking about the Sony MDR-1R to go along with my xba-3, would it be a major difference in sound?

I've got the MK2bt and the 3s and there is definitely a major difference. First thing you notice is the much larger soundstage & more pronounced vocals in the mids.

I also find them sounding a bit thinner than the XBA3s, which makes some tracks a little too sparkly - even more so than the xba !

 

I think I am too used to IEMs that when I first bought the Mk2 I wasn't too impressed. However, after about two months they are growing on me and I am using it a lot more at home, it's better for live concerts and shows. Most reviews say that they lack low end (sub) bass but I find it sufficient, plus you can always EQ it. 

 

I think it'd be a nice addition and should complement the xba3s. Plus you wouldn't want the signature to be too similar!

Thanks a lot, I may look into the MDR10r as well, I know people say they arent the best but I am on a budget and at $100 the 10r isnt a bad price.
