Pretty sure the warranty will be long over before that happens.... zing :P

You're obviously new to these parts if you're unfamiliar with the issues the LCD3 has had since launch. You should probably familiarize yourself with who is who around these parts before you, as a newbie, automatically make blanket assumptions about people's technical expertise.

Hah, yeah really. At least the LCD2s seem to have less imbalance reports lately. It's kind of crazy that even a quick perusal of forum posts is finding a lot of early and mid-2013 LCD3 production line channel issues. Meanwhile my HE6 has been a flawless performer.

How is the design flawed?  It's so flawed I sold the LCD-3 to keep it:biggrin:

It's a headphone that needs a speaker amp to sound properly. That could be considered as a huge design flaw.

HE6's don't sound very flawed to me  :biggrin:

...That's a bit of an over reaction isn't it?

Sorry for the strong response -I'm normally a mild-mannered person :smile:

 

 

Overreaction?? It's a TWO THOUSAND dollar headphone. :confused_face:  From a company with a reputation for QC issues, albeit doing the best they can.

We'll see how well the new balanced Dynahi design works to power the HE6 :)

This is what I was referring to.  In jest. Ish ;)

Totally agree! This is the reason I never considered it..

post #8292 of 9799

I consider Audeze design flaws a design flaw. To mention nothing of price/performance ratio. :)

Audeze has their own odd design decisions.  Getting the driver angle through pads while not changing the yoke... bad.  There's a reason Senn and Beyer angle the housing and not the pad ;)

Just step your amp game up - and your be rewarded big time..  I sure am..:biggrin:

To be fair, both my HE-6 and LCD-2 had never given me any technical issue while they were with me. Somehow, I couldn't help having this feeling that I was living with a time bomb, given the number of failures reported. Sending the headphones back for servicing is PITA too. Recently, I sent my Mini Torii amp back to Decware to fix channel imbalance and noise issue, and it cost me $300 shipping charge, not to mention the trouble and time spent on shipping and collecting the parcel. With the HD800, I never worry about that as my local service centre is just 15 minutes drive away, and on top of that, I hardly hear of any failure with Sennheiser. Of course, if you love the Audeze and Hifiman sound, I think it is still a small price to pay and it will definitely feel worthwhile for you to take the risk.
