I just received my LCD3 and Mjolinor and after about 30 minutes, the left side the headphone quit working. After testing my connection and swapping the connects to single ended mode, I still got the same result on my Lyr amp. I swapped out the LCD3 for my HD800 on the Lyr and no problem. So I have 2 questions. Is the phone failure common with the LCD3, and how would I go about finding balanced xlr cables that would fit the HD800?
The little time I had the LCD3 running on the Mjolinor, I thought I had finally achieved my audio slice of nirvana. I'm going to send them back and try again, but now I would really like to try the HD800 in balanced mode.
Contact Audez'e for a RMA. The process is painless.
As for a balanced cable, you can either re-terminate the cable yourself with a 4-pin/dual 3-pin XLR.
Or buy an HD800 aftermarket cable.
Another option is buying some HD800 adapter earrings. Q sells these.
