It's fine, I sit on your leather couch naked.

Can't we all go back to talking about our love for the LCD-3?

In the middle of the article it says you can run them from a smartphone.

An LCD-3 bamboo with a headband like the STAX 009 would be my ideal headphone.  I hope a headband redesign is in the mix from Audeze.  I miss the sound of the LCD-3 almost every day, but the form, fit, and feel of the headphone just needs some working on for me to really like it at $2k.

A headband is one of the easiest things to play with. There are aftermarket headband cushions. I had Grado PS1000s for a while and wrapped a 

half-inch thick rectangle of foam around the headband and secured it with some electrical tape and it was really comfortable. 

I actually find the LCD3 headband fine, but if I didn't, I think I could fix it.

If you find the music plays exceptionally well from the LCD-3 - minor comfort issue is insignificant. IMHO. Either you appreciate the Audeze - or yo don´t. If you don´t - and - complain on comfort - you are indeed missing out on something.

Only have the LCD2 but I think the comfort impression I have fits the sound signature.....heavy and and at the same time soft/smooth on the ears.

Whereas my HD800 are almost not noticeable and so is the soundsignature.....too light at times, without the Oomph!

Right now I prefer Audeze but I respect the HD800 for what they are.

Oh I'd like to use the Burson Conductor, but I may have to make due, so it's nice to know I can just get the cans, then upgrade the amp situation separate like.

I have a LCD3 with an early S/N# 231xxxx, just last week, both side of the metal housing for the mini xlr connector got loosen & literally dropping off from the wooden housing. 

 

I send it to the local agent & they claim that Audeze's advice is to glue it back.

 

My concern is that the wooden slot for the metal housing is already loosen and no matter how they re-glue it back, the damage is already done. So, with frequent change of cable, the metal housing will be loosen again.

 

I would like to check if anyone has this problem before and how Audeze request to this manufacturing defect, thank you.

Talk to Audeze not your local.

Why does changing the cable stress anything out? If you have a Mfg defect then I would look here. Mine just slide in and out. No wrestling required.

Thanks for the advice. Have you done yours already?

When I return home I'm going to do mine and report. They are kept in a room with A/C which tends to dry out the air, plus I think it will make them look closer to how good they sound :)

+1 talk to Audeze!Your local doesn't want to be bothered and I don't think to glue it back yourself is Audeze's advice.
