YEAH! Exactly with me too. I have LCD-2s also and I notice that the LCD3 pads just collapse right down to flat in the thinner section while the cheaper LCD2 pads have more cushioning.

I wonder if I could swap the pads...

Maybe in a live show but not on their Christmas album

Hello, I have a question for the LCD3 owners, having seen many pictures of the LCD3 being powered by portable amps I am wondering how would it sound using a SR-71B on balanced mode?, I know it would not be comparable to a desktop set but I am wondering how much I will be missing while I save some cash for a desktop amp.

 

I am still deciding between the TH900 and the LCD3, I think the TH900 is better for portability but I would like to get the best sound quality even if I lose some portability.

Some like the Burson HA-160 and that's only 80mW into the LCD-3 so... depends if you like the the 71B to begin with.

 

That said LCD-3 using a phone source and portable amp seems really really mismatched and likely leave you thinking your Shure's are better.

Sound quality wise, I prefer the LCD-3s. The TH-900s are the best closed cans I've heard/owned and are fantastic headphones (open or closed). But wrt portability, I would take NEITHER out of my home.

I heard the LCD3 out of a Rx Mk3-B, and it was very, very impressive. This was side by side with the Burson Soloist and Mjolnir.
