kudos to you, master of the control/mac, c and v keys biggrin.gif

hmm, the  design is still the same, as they start shipping in about 20 days ...they are not the prototype model, the final model will look the same ...( unless ofcourse its all a plan by audeze )

 

another 1k over the LCD 2 Demands a lot of improvements than just tweaking the driver ( rev 2 did that )

like the HE6 was to HE5le.

 

the LCD2 were ( as per some ) in league with R10, O2 and others, this must mean that the LCD-3 ( really , LCD2 was a good name , LCD-3 , is not ) have a  high mountain to climb

 

i mean if sennheiser released a new HP $100 (or so) more than HD800 it ( most probably )  will be of different flavour , ( like the HD650 was to HD600 ) , but if they release a HP of price $1000 more than HD800 they will have to improve over HD800.

 

So the LCD-3,  should be to LCD2

What HD800, are to HD650/600

What K1000, are to K501/601/701

What STAX SR-009, are to SR-007 MK1/MK2

 

 

...am waiting to read the impressions . popcorn.gif

These are supposed to be a jump so I'm going to vote they are on level w/electrostatics or attempting to be.

Maybe look at it this way.

With this price, they're basically saying, "We're better than HD800 and then some." Can't wait to see what people think. popcorn.gif

the effortless-ness of a electrostat can only be acheived by another electrostat. ( or am i wrong ?? )

Wasn't Grado saying the same thing with the PS1000s? Not many agreed with them on that one. tongue.gif

well they are aiming for the best

 

quoted from their blog

"When we started designing the LCD-3 professional reference headphones, the goal was very clear, it must be the best. No compromise when it comes to the quality of sound."

I have placed an order of a pair of LCD-2s and still no news regarding the shipment.  I think I will have to cancel the order and enjoy more with my AH-D7000 and HD 800.

Off the Audeze website:

 

Design and Comfort
Zebra wood housing
Lambskin Earpads
Efficiency = 91 dB
 
Looks like the same efficiency as the LCD-2s.

Looks like my amps will drive them fine but at $2K, not sure I will give it a try... For sure it will not be twice better than LCD-2, most likely not more than 25% better too.

You could pick up me and Silly Sally on the way to the airport if you like.  Let us know!



You got that right, I am in for a pair of LCD3's. Money waiting at paypal from recent sales. beerchug.gif

 

I have been reading how much you guys like the LCD2/Liquid Fire combo so now is my chance to hear the LCD3's/Liquid Fire combo.

Hopefully the LCD3 is a repacked LCD2 so I don't have to upgrade eek.gif

Its costs $2000 so probably not. Suddenly my LCD-2 Rev2s seem like some old technology lying around the street ;_; an entire summer of work (poor college student) for 2nd rate headphones :-(
