My only concern is how the A3 will sit in my ears, as I struggle to find a decent position with the IE80. I said in a previous post that the demo ones have all been modded so no one steals them - they seem to sit well in my ear, but how the actual ones sit is starting to concern me.
Don't know if this helps, but here's how it looks and fit. The driver sits comfortably with the help of the over-ear guides. Guide's material is light, flexible and soft(really helps to keep the fit light and easy on the ears). Doesn't hurt my ear or feels fatiguing even after long period listening. With that being said, ear-tips plays a big part on the comfort. Personally I'm using the JVC Spiral Dot. The short, large bores enables it to go deeper for comfortability and better isolation. I also really liked the texture of the tips which feels smooth and soft, yet isolates firmly(unlike ear-tips which is soft & comfortable but always slips out).
