So why did you keep the LCD-2 over the LCD-3?


As I said, I wanted to keep a phone with typical Audeze sound, just for my collection. I did like HE-6 over LCD-3 so much, I didn't even listen to LCD-3 anymore. And yes, I know LCD-3 was much better than LCD-2 Rev.2. But something man has to take unpopulair discissions ;-)! And for the Audeze sound (mostly with Electronic music) it take LCD-2...

Thanks for the tip.... Ofcourse you have to add shippingcost, importfees and tax. That will be around 25-30% plus. But still less expensive!

The poll is counter to the comments so are kind of a popularity poll and not an experience one.

Sorry, I'll keep myself on the subject... HE-6 is the verdict :-)

This is probably true, because of the number of high profile reviewers that talk up the LCD3, e.g. Jude, Tyll, Skylab, Guttenberg, etc.  But then again, the number of high profile reviewer's favoring the lcd3 also says something about these headphones.

 

I tend to agree w/ Tyll's ears on most headphones, which is why I picked the LCD3.  Then again it could just be that I'm just biased by their opinions...

Could it be said that the HD800 phones are in fact better than the LCD3s so that the real choice should be either the HE6 or the HD800s? From reading several threads it would appear the HD800s are the best headphones ever made and further that nothing else can really compare with them at all... Perhaps this thread should also morph into "The HD800 Appreciation Thread" as well! The HD800 is the best headphone available after all...

It's up there for sure. It's one of my best purchases

All kidding aside are the HD800 better than the LCD3s? If they are even equally desirable to own then it's a no brainer as they are $500 less?

i know the lcd-2 and the hd-800(not the lcd-3, sorry)if the lcd-3 is similato lcd-2, is not comparable to hd-800.

rather, they are complementary

Depends on the individual's tastes, and system. Ultimately, I kept my HD800 and HE6 over my LCD3 as they did pretty much everything better besides the bass texturing (HE6 feels more detailed and deep, but less musical.

The rare useful comment in this thread, by someone that has actually owned both headphones.
