Did you heard music with loud volume ?

My friend has too long with custom iem , that made his ear drum infection , now he can hear only headphone , Doctor said no more Ciems
Because iems or ciems going direct to eardrum , if to loud very danger

Thank u Rudi~ :)

 

yeah the reason is because i wear both of my ciem and my headphones too loud and too long... But the doctor suggest me to listen to speakers instead of headphone and iem. :)

 

PS: You guys can send back the LCD3 and replace the driver to a new fasor driver?? How how how?? Just contact Audeze and send back the headphone straight away? I wanna try it before i sell my system out... :P

Yeah you have to raise a ticket and send it for RMA I think. Though expect a waiting time of 1 month aprox, if you like your headphones darker, you might not like the change, though it's an improvement.

Had my LCD-3Fs for a week now. Listening by day, burning in overnight. A few more impressions in comparison to my LCD-3Cs:

The F is more comfortable. The headband has softer filling, and does not cause me a pain when wearing for hours. Also, my ears did not rub on the fazors, a big complaint I had about the LCD-X I had.

The F bass is incredible in tone, pitch and depth. Spot on. Not muddy as in the C.

The F high frequencies are opened up and very well balanced with the rest of the spectrum. The C lack the sparkle, attack, and clarity.

The F has the same emotional midrange of the C, but still more detail. It is more alive and present, musical without getting analytical.

More sensitivity with the F. I am easily able to really use my iPod Touch 5 as source. That combo sounds A LOT better than it has any right to. The F sounds fuller on the iPod, lower bass and more dimensionality with my Gungnir/tube amp combo. Go figure.

I preferred my LCD-3C more than the LCD-X I bought. The X to me sounded like listening to audiophile loudspeakers, not music. Sold the LCD-X.

I prefer the LCD-3F to my LCD-3C. The bass is still fleshing out on my new pair, but still it is jaw dropping at times. Very physical, visceral, and articulate/tight. Gives the music a realistic foundation. The mids are a little more forward, but more part of the whole. As is the HF. I can listen to these cans for hours without fatigue. Take them off, and my ears feel refreshed. The LCD-3F is what the LCD-3C was, and for me, every shortcoming has been taken care of. While still maintaining all the strengths. Sold my LCD-3C.

I have not heard a LCD-3C with fazors added.

Would an LCD-3C with the fazor upgrade sound 100% the same as a factory LCD-3F?????

I doubt a factory LCD-3F sounds the same as a factory LCD-3F, given the unit to unit variations that have been noted with hps tongue.gif

Some Greek dude once remarked you can't step into the same river twice. Replied Heraclitus (presumably in Greek): "You can't step into the same river once!"

The LCD-3F has a different new design driver as well as fazors. The LCD-3F is noticeably louder than the LCD-3C at the same volume setting. The LCD-3C upgrade only adds fazors, stators, with new pads, and no new diaphragm. So not the same.

Have not heard a LCD-3C upgraded, so cannot say how they compare.

Sorry guys. But what is an LCD 3C?
post #9101 of 11245

Has anyone tried the 3F on Auralic Taurus or Schiit Lyr and can comment?

3C means LCD-3 Classic, as in, non Fazor version.

The LCD-3 as made until mid-December 2013 were all basically similar (lets forget about the veiled LCD-3 for the moment), and did not have the "fazors" added. Fazors were first introduced on the LCD-X in November 2013. I referred to these earlier model LCD-3 as LCD-3 Classics, or LCD-3C for short.

Audeze added fazors on the LCD-2 and LCD-3 product line as they believe in continuous improvement.... Without telling anyone, or publicly announcing revisions. Fazors, by themselves are a waveguide that you can feel in the ear cup that helps keep the sound waves from getting messed up before they get to your ear. So you can easily tell by feel if your LCD-3 have them or not. But you cannot tell from the model number.

Along about March or April of this year, word started getting posted that LCD-3 customers recently purchased had fazors. Inquiring about this with Audeze they came up with a retro fit plan that they would add fazors (but specifically not diaphragms) to purchased LCD-3 for $250 plus shipping. Some folks sent theirs in for the upgrade.

Looking over the new specs of the LCD-3 on the Audeze site, they were quite a bit different than what they were previously. Many (including me) thought they came up with a new driver to go with the fazors. These after mid-December manufactured LCD-3 with fazors came to be unofficially referred to as LCD-3F.

See, its simple. blink.gif

That you for your detailed reply. How would you compare the LCD3C and the 3F?

I've written a couple of impressions. Search this thread for my posts.
