I might add in a HE-560, HE-4 and LCD-X in the mix while Im at it. After all, the shop that ahs all those and an acoustically treated room is only 20 minutes away from my home/work place biggrin.gif.
Just need to save the cash first. Id hate to try those and then realize I still have to wait 2-3 months to be able to buy em biggrin.gif

The lcdx was the easy winner for me in that lineup with the hd800 coming in second and everything else coming in at a way distant 3rd. I've seen the lcdx/xc at $1300 a few times lately and it is becoming overwhelmingly tempting.

I have two problems with the LCD X:

In Poland it costs 20 more than a HD800, and it is very heavy/uncomfortable.

Even if they sound like angels singing your name around gold embers in holy fire... if your ears are melting and your sweat is making you feel like a pig on a barbecue... you probably will not choose that headphone.

Wow, $30,000 for the LCD-X would be too much for me too. Its a shame that government can have such a negative, wet blanket effect on audiophile fun as well. I guess YMMV in terms of comfort, while they are heavier and not as comfortable as my HD700 (the most comfortable HP I have tried), they certainly don't melt my ears - that would be unfortunate. :wink_face:
