XBA3's arrived Thursday, holy moly these things sound FANTASTIC! I actually notice a significant difference between them and the XBA2's (not that the XBA2's are shabby at all).
In addition to that I managed to grab one more pair of XBA2's (for $40), so all in all I have 1 XBA3 and 2 XBA2VP's. Total spent $130AUD, RRP is $850AUD ($350, $250x2, and that does seem to be the going price on some online stores here in oz).

I prefer the XBA3's also as they don't have the line in so less cord mess when connecting to the cowon i9+

Well chuffed

(sorry if this sounds like bragging, its just prolly the best steal I ever achieved

EDIT: Oh, can someone please tell me, why would one channel wire (the R ear) be longer cable than the left (where it forks in two)? The XBA2's have even length for R & L but the XBA3's have about twice as long length from the place it forks in two against the length of the Left ear channel has... why?
