You sound like a man with a plan and an agenda. No wonder you've been crushing hype trains left and right! You sly dog you. :D

As for the price though.....I'd take it used at half the price. I honestly don't think the LCD-2 is worth half its price for the sound quality alone.

 

They could easily sound dull of out many amps, or unexciting with some music. The original LCD-2s before the change in FR were brilliant with pop music, such as Michael Jackson. With a speaker amp or an amp with similar amounts of power they really wake up. 

 

I'm more excited by the two new models, especially if the voicing has changed from the LCD-2s and LCD-3s. The LCD-3s almost did it for me, but not quite (probably due to the dip at 4 kHz, which always gets me).

LCD-2 sounds brilliant from my speaker amp and worth every penny for me. Still a great headphone as it was back in 2011.

 

I was contemplating my next move, either a LCD-3 or HE-6, but now I've narrowed it down to the LCD-X. If the X proves to be much more capable than the HE-500/LCD-2, then I will sell them both and get the LCD-XC to compliment the X. :evil:

I think the best to have is LCD-3 and LCD-XC

i was hoping the new headphone (well now it happens to be headphones) is cheaper than lcd2 but oh well... lcd2 sounds the most logical if i want to jump on the audeze train... kinda dislike how they mark up the price for the rosewood version though...

I'm most interested to see what's under that wood cover-plate with the LCD-XC. Some sort of intricate damping patterns milled into the wood? Some specialized damping fabric materials?

I'm guessing little pouches of pixie dust and unicorn tears.

Someone bring a medium sized phillips screwdriver and a camera with them to rmaf and unscrew those cans when Audeze isn't looking.

2-ply toilet paper.

 +1 ....preferably purchased at Costco..lol

 

All seriousness though, they do look interesting,  hopefully not overly neutral.

You people have no mercy.

Let my poor wallet live free for at least 1 year!

 

But actually, since i listened to HE-400, I wanted a closed planar for travel (with a portable amp like the Fiio E12).

I know I look like a geek who thinks is beeing observed by aliens, but as son as the music kicks in, I sort of dont care (that would be using the HE-400).

 

The only problem will be getting to test them before buying them.

My local hi-fi store (basicly head-fi) dosent even have an LCD-2, and they are not interested in bringing many HPs to the shop.

Here's the official press release for the LCD-X and LCD-XC:

 

http://www.scullcommunications.com/pressresources/audeze/audeze_rmaf_13.pdf

 

“The LCD-3 defines the ultimate in headphone playback, but the open architecture and beautifully-finished wood enclosure may not be ideal for travel,” explained Alex. “The LCD-X and XC, on the other hand, feature hard-anodized, aluminum enclosures making them even more durable for travel and studio use.”
