New Audeze LCD3 - Page 338

post #5056 of 9799

Sure one person,  multiple persons get their LCD's back just a week or so ago and say they are fixed, but that still does not mean the QC issue is solved.  Safe to me would be to wait a month or so to see if this new batch has driver failures.  It has happened.  Someone in the forum recently got a new fixed LCD-3 only to have the driver fail and then when a replacement was sent that person felt that although his current LCD-3 sounded excellent it did vary in sonics from the so called fixed pair where the driver failed.  It was all posted right here in this thread.  The indication that there still might be variances in sound even among the newest batch would be of great concern to me if I were to lay down 2K.  Then again we still have to see if the drivers can stand the test of even a few months without failing.  So safe is not a word I would use.

 I wish you guys would stop posting about the LCD3s. Most of us come to this thread to learn about the metric system!

If a prospective customer is concerned and needs to ask, it would seem prudent to wait. Unless it's an immediate gratification thing - then by all means, go for it.

And again as far as it seems problem(s) are being solved. But I guess time will tell.


There have been several people with failed drivers from the initial batch. I know of two people (including me) who had a replacement driver fail. I have no doubts that Audeze will take care of their customers. They have been very responsive. It's matter of inconvenience, and having to pay for shipping them back for RMA if after the grace period.

 

Waiting is never a bad thing in life, whether it be buying a house, getting married, or buying LCD3s.

I stand corrected, thanks.

I'm actually waiting on buying a pair of LCD-3s. And even though it seems as if Audeze is getting things done, I will wait a couple more months to make sure

there aren't any recurring failures. I know many of you have been around a long while, so were there many driver failures with the Hd800 or HE-6 or any of the other top headphones? Only asking to get a better sense of the current situation. I mean, stuff happens and while that doesn't serve as a good excuse for Audeze it gives me a good scale for these kinds of situations.

If I go from an R.2 to the 3 (with upgraded amp/DAC, or course), am I to expect what I already get but better in everyway? Or is there something I may not like about the upgraded Audeze sound, something that differs from the R.2s signature?

 

Was wondering about that. Thanks.

 


hmm... in my opinion,  if you are a music lover, LCD2r2 vs LCD3 isn't a huge different in comparison. Whatever details you can listen in LCD3, you are able to listen through LCD2r2.

 

If compare in term of analytical, for me LCD3 is huge different compare to LCD2r2... the different for me is about 60 to 70% better.

 

I tested them a week ago and i am still missing the performance of LCD3. Like others mentioned before, LCD3 has wider sound stage, more refined, more air, smoother, and cleaner and with better and good looking feature as zebra wood, softer earpads, better cable connection. Beside that, i feel the lamb skin in LCD3 is somewhere thicker than the LCD2r2... perhaps i was wrong. blink.gif

Or maybe they are the same person!  A very Ender's Game strategy.  Is Orson Scott amongst us.  Reveal yourself!  biggrin.gif

Actually Locke and Demosthenes were different people, Peter and Valentine.
post #5065 of 9799

Yes, we know that, but two voices with one common goal, more Peter's goals.  Wasn't a great analogy but a quick response to lighten the mood.  

And I'm only half way thru so no spoilers biggrin.gif

Let me add fuel to the fire and I'm sure this has been said before, if I'm buying a $2000+ (more in Australia...) pair of headphones, I expect nothing but utter most quality without any issues hindering its performance.

I like my felt version LCD3 as they are right now so much that I'm afraid to RMA them..

Read all of the Ender books. Past the first one it starts to get ... odd... but it's worth it in the end.

That's because you are not buying 2000+ dollar headphones.
