New Audeze LCD3 - Page 463

post #6931 of 9537

Doh, LCD-2... not by default.  The LCD-3 comes with both.  Audeze sells the 4pin XLR separately for $80 I think.  Don't think you'll find cheaper for an 8ft 20awg copper leash.

The 3 comes with both types of cables, I don't remember the 2 coming with a balanced stock cable.  Maybe they've changed that since I last bought a pair though.

Ah. My bad. I'm looking at LCD2, just asking here since the cables share terminations and this thread seemed more active than the 2 thread. I might be able to get them to sell me a LCD2 with the balanced cable instead of the 1/4.

Still would be interested to find a silver cable though. Not much of a cable sound believer, but trying to aim for a darker headphone with bright transparent amp/dac/cable to balance the spectrum. Silver cables generally are regarded as being so. I got one from Chris_himself for my HD800 and while it is light, it's pretty rigid. Looking for nearly-floppy flexibility. Perhaps I'm confined to copper with that requirement.

yup, LCD-3 comes with two cables:

one with 4-pin XLR and the other with 1/4" TRS

 

sorry Radio_head beat me to the submit button tongue_smile.gif

I bought some of the XLR cables so i could offer it this way.  i had not considered offering the XLR as a replacement for the 1/4" though.

Perhaps I'm a bit goofy, though. I've been balanced only since 2009, aside from IEMs which I do actually have a balanced cable for, but don't use much. I would have no use for a 1/4 except for people to try my headphones on other amps at a meet.

Any suggestions for an affordable, light, flexible balanced cable? Silver preferred. I don't care about sound differences.

 

Q Audio cables meet all of your needs except silver.

 

Actually, I might have a spare stock balanced cable from the LCD-3 that I'd be happy to send you. PM if you're interested, and I'll check once I get home from work.

What cable are you using with your LCD-3? I also have the BHA-1 as well as HD800s and Gungnir. Seems we have similar tastes.

Balanced Q Audio for the LCD-3. Best ergonomics in a cable, haven't compared sonics with the stock. I have a single-ended Black Dragon cable for my HD800 and much prefer the Q.

Q cables are really good.  Flexible beyond anything else I've tried.  Cool looking too!  I got the RED!

How is the bulk? I actually prefer sleeveless cables, just the jacket on the wire is fine with me.
