Just picked up the Elear and here are my first impressions with direct comparisons between HD800 and Audeze LCD-3 using Bryston BHA-1 amp.
Treble (instruments) are resolving and smooth with vocals somewhat softer sounding and less forward vs HD800 but on par with LCD-3.
Mids/Upper mids seems "polite" meaning a bit tame and less revealing and recessed with certain genres namely rock.
Bass is punchy and extended with slam but not bloated or muddy. Not as weighty or as...
