My Headphone cable is starting to fracture near one of the mini plugs on my LCD2.2's.  Copper wire is exposed and looks to be fracturing with plastic kind of slit.  Called them and they are replacing it free of charge.  Nice!

I went through this whole deal where I was going to get the Moon Audio Black Dragon then decided to wait until I bought the LCD3's.  Now I have to put that off so..........................

i have the same problem and im looking for a new cable.still undecided though.

i dont like the stock one anyway because it tangles all the time.

A shamefull repost, but I am so neck deep in Audeze "stuff" that it adds a perfect dimension. Using the LCD-2r1, LCD-2r2 and the LCD-3 on different setups. Music is good. :)

 

None of the 3 will every be sold. They are already a collectors item - and precious music conveyors.

Not trying to be flamebait, but can someone elaborate on why they would buy something other than the stock LCD-2 cable? I've found with most cables, as long as they're not microphonic or heavy it's not an issue. Who are we kidding, the headphones are heavy and most of the slack in the cable is resting on my lap or the floor. Just curious if anyone noticed anything inherently wrong with the stock cable. I find it interesting that Audeze actually has a lot of technical specs (which I don't understand - but looks impressive) which is more than what I can find from a lot of 3rd party cable retailers.

Ergonomics for me. Q cables can't be beat when it comes to flexibility and weight. Also termination, but I think Audeze includes a 4 pin cable with the LCD 3s now.

Agreed, stock works like any other cable should, coat hanger wire may be a little stiff though.

Interesting turn of phrase. Don't think I've ever seen it before.

 

Have to add it to my repertoire. wink.gif

Well, I don't want to start a fight.  I know there's a heavy Q cable following.

 

However, for me I went the Norse Norn2 8-conductor cable for my LCD-2.2s.   After trying both a few things won out for me.  SQ - well both IMO are excellent.  Ergonomics / flexibility again both are great.  Looks.  Norse wins by a mile IMO.  Steve has some sexy a_ _ cables and the silk cables are no less sexy.  The the Norse cable are even more sexy IMO Trevor also adds a very classy wood engraved splitter.  Steve is against splitters all together from my understanding.  Plus Trevor has more of a selection the choose from.

More cable options I guess but Steve has a wealth of aesthetic options. I honestly dislike the wood splitter, but that's just preference. Does make it unique.

And I still have never heard the difference in cables. From my purely ergonomic standpoint I'd still take Q.
