I'm sure the X is a great headphone, however it's not closed. Also with that said, I wonder if it'd provide the kind of closed pressure-oriented bass the XC has which LCD2 lacked. Also looking at the Innerfidelity measurements of the X and the XC, the XC looks to be the more neutral of the two throughout the upper midrange/lower treble. I wonder if Tyll will include the XC for comparison sakes when he posts his LCD-X review this friday, which I heard also takes into consideration the revised LCD2?
I'll parrot Purrin's remarks on the LCD series in saying that the LCD-3 is the most detailed out of all the Audeze cans.
