Given that there's now no price difference to consider, which would you recommend?

3DS XL, easily. The only thing the original 3DS has going for it is that it has a lower price and more colors to choose from.

Baseless prediction as of 01/04/13 : the next Xbox will be called the Xbox On.

I keep hearing people say that the XL has pixelation issues though.

That's somewhat true, but it's not that noticeable in my experience. The larger screen more than makes up for it in any case.

The XL is also supposed to have inferior speakers, so the sound will be more quiet at 100%.

I remember the DSi XL having similar "issues" but it's barely noticeable. All it boils down to is critics being spiteful and exacerbating the XL's "flaws". I only have the 3DS, but I'm happy with it. However, if I didn't have the regular 3DS and there was a chance for me to buy the XL for the same price as the 3DS, I'd buy the XL.

I always use headphones, so that won't make a difference (unless their output to headphones is also lower).

I have the XL, I the screen size is great. It doesn't seem pixelated to me. Even pokemon white looks fine on the XL. Mario 3D land looks gorgeous.
