It's all relative to the noise in the room the person is using the headphones.

 

Even if there is about 10-20 db noise (EDIT: more than normal) in that room, the closed back headphone will sound a lot better.

Also the closed back is much more flexible, and can be used anywhere, everywhere. I could probably use the lcd-3 about a couple of hours a week. However the closed back version would never leave my head.

That's a good scenario for closed back headphones then, considering the average db of a quiet room in is around 40db.

And it looks like an LCD-3 with a wood cover screwed over the grill. XD

FYI that's an LCD2, albeit one of the newer ones with bamboo wood, black plastic connectors.

 

LCD3 = chrome connectors, and brown leather earpads.

Oh yeah you're right. I Googled "audeze lcd bamboo" to get that image. Thanks for the clarification.

Just take my money...

I have a feeling that they could make this into a simple kit, where you just unscrew the metal grills of LCD2/3s, and pop the crafted wood cups on. If they are able to make all the damping and acoustics work on the cup then there is no reason why people who already own Audeze headphones need to pay more for the entire headphone assembly with this.

Subed.

I was just thinking the same thing. There won't be the weight of the metal rear grill covers.

Sure, if you enjoy headaches of shipping headphones back, waiting and wondering ad nauseum. I like to wait until everything is settled and the genuine article is available.

Unless the drivers are completely different as well.
Reminds me back then there was a thread with a person that was interested in making headphones that can operate both in open or closed format. Did the other folks of Head-Fi ridicule him or what! If this prototype is exactly a replacement part for the grills, I do wish those people apologize. Either way they still should.

Anyway, loving the looks of this one!

Why not just make the extra wood magnetic? Need your LCD 2 closed? BAM. Done.

Must be very heavy......  floatsmile.png

Only viable if it attenuates outside noise substantially, otherwise, what is the point.

 

Let us know how well it isolates outside noise please.

They may have different drivers... why will audeze push out a closes version with same driver?
