This thread title might look a bit silly but after reading through numerous of threads I often see people compare the LCD-3 and the SR 009.
Based on what I read a large amount of people went for the LCD-3 to get the closest result of the SR 009 performance at 1/3 of the price
This was in my eyes quite suprising as both headphones use a totaly different technology (Orthodynamics vs Electrostatics).
I would expect that the closest result of the Stax SR 009 would be a cheaper Stax model but from what im reading alot of people prefer the LCD-3
I got a LCD-2 at the moment which I really love and wouldnt want to get rid of, Also i'd love to try the Stax headphones but they're quite expensive. When I read numerous posts about the LCD-3 I got excited, I get to keep the LCD sound and get the closest thing to to an SR 009? Ofcourse im a bit skeptic and struggling with alot of questions now and I really hope (ex) SR and LCD owners can help me with.
Im trying to get an idea of how well some of the LCD-3 character compares to the SR 009, to help me get an idea it would also help if I can compare it with my LCD-2 (latest bamboo rev.)
1) How is LCD-3 bass compared to SR 009 and how is LCD-3 bass compared to LCD-2 bass
2) How is soundstage and imaging on LCD-3 vs sr 009 and is soundstage and imaging on LCD-3 vs LCD-2 ?
3) How open do the SR-009 sound vs the LCD-3 and do they leak as much sound as LCD's ?
4) Which other headphone(s) would come close to the SR 009 that would cost around the same of a LCD-3 ?
If there's anything else you guys like to add for comparision please do :)
If you dont know the Stax but can tell me these LCD-2 vs LCD-3 differences I mentioned that would help alot too
Thanks in advance for the input guys
