Audeze closed-back prototypes! Yeah, this is one of the headphones at the top of my wish list. - Page 39

post #571 of 820

What about a Klutz headphone stand with built-in Auralic USB DAC (DXD, DSD, double-rate DSD, 384k) with a SDXC card reader and a 2W class-A balanced amp? :blink:

yeah i may get an alpha dog after all for end game... if i decide against getting the hifiman he500... still deciding and also waiting for companies to push out new products to see if there are other things that interest me, wont be buying any headphone until at least christmas anyway...  so still quite a bit of time to decide...

I also want an AD my self. I did not like how thick the MD was and apprently the AD does not have that warmth...

More than one report now States that the XC is very similar to the X, in many ways, minus the open advantages. Strange that this inherent quality, along with the closed advantages isn't attracting more praise and recommendations?! I wonder if a $600 price makes all the difference?

Analixus described the XC as being close to the X with great transient response but a little recessed upper mids in comparison-- which imo isn't a bad thing.  Better to have upper mid recession than upper mid emphasis.

uh... no, I have my LCD-3 for that... :wink:

I want upper mids to be spot on, as well as all other frequencies.

LCD2 certainly doesn't have recessed upper mids, I'd assume the LCD3 to be the same as well.

They are definitely on the relaxed side of neutral (hence you see the gentle slope down from 1~2kHz toward higher frequencies), but it is far from recessed.

Gosh... which one should i get? the XC look so good but really scare that i might regret after buying it.

Newer LCD-2s are closer to neutral. Looks like Audez'e has addressed the upper-mids complaint to a certain degree. Also the perceived bass has decreased thanks to this balancing out of the tonality. I think the X will be right up my current penchant for neutrality, and I will buy one ASAP, but the LCD-2 is pretty darn close to neutral now for me, very close to the HE-500, which is something I thought I would never say. However, the HE-500 is still has more air and a sense of space. Also, the somewhat rough nature of the LCD-2 treble is gone, much smoother now while presenting more treble info. Wish everyone could hear my LCD-2, it's so different from the previous models I shake my head sometimes...

This is exactly what my LCD2 was like, and I preferred it over my LCD3 by miles.

Yup, if one can find a good sounding LCD-2, nothing really like it. Can't believe how much the LCD-2 has improved. The new softer pads are just crème on top now, comfort + crazy awesome sound.
