True Blue Hawaii is expensive at $6K but the Stax/Blue Hawaii combo is a bargain compared to Sennheiser Odyssey or HiFiMan Shangri La which are order of magnitude pricier. I have doubts whether they're better sounding. The Stax009s/Blue Hawaii is killer with Stax 009s airier than Stax 009. The 009 is great but the s gets you over the top.
If you are looking for a venue for serious comparison, you'll find it at a hi-end stereo show. Obviously, it may be a while before one actually happens but generally there are most manufacturers of both headphones and driver units. They are worth waiting for if you are planning to make an expensive purchase (even $2500).
