Audeze closed-back prototypes! Yeah, this is one of the headphones at the top of my wish list. - Page 54

Let's hope no graph was an omission and not a new practice. Other than the gent on about.com XC measurements have been hard to come by.

Do you think it is better in all areas as the TH900?

Congrats, Grumpy!

 

how does the purple heart look in person? I know with the bamboo, pics didnt' do it justice at all. It looks a bit lighter in your pic than it did in the Audeze pics...is that a pretty accurate representation? 

 

Looks great with the black rings!

It's a new practice.  You have to email support@audeze.com to get the graph for your SN.

I am hoping to be able to have a home demo of the LCDX in several weeks. I live in an "open floor plan" configuration with my wife, and the closed Audeze would likely be more 'ideal', but from everything I've read so far, people feel the open back LCDX to be the 'better' headphone. I could probably work around that (I already have the Paradox which is closed). Would be great to hear more comparisons between the open and closed versions though. I will have the LCDX for about a week, so maybe that would be enough time to know if I need to go the closed back route for more sound isolation from my immediate environment, in which case - regardless of other factors - I suppose the XC would be the 'better' phone in my particular situation.

Thanks, looks very purplish indeed (I was expecting something a little more reddish from the pics I had) It is fairly light, which contrasts nicely with the black rings (something actually Audeze offered me at the time because they were running out of the grey ones) Also, it's rather shiny so the perceived lightness changes with the angle. I'll see if I can get a better daylight pic.

Not necessarily. I personally *like* it better.

 

- Isolation: noticeably better.

- Weight: not better at all.

- Sound: depends on what one likes. That's why I had the preamble about the LCD-3 to put things in perspective. That's the sound that floats my boat: fairly flat response, esp. no treble emphasis, and deeeeep bass (but again, not necessarily a lot of it) The LCD-XC *is* brighter, but well-behaved in that area, and thus in some way actually closer to the TH900 than different.

 

If you have the TH900 in particular and are happy with it, I would try to get a listen before committing. If you are not familiar yet with either sound signature, that's a tougher call.

Didn't know that, will give it a try... I wonder if they will get flooded with this type of email soon :D.

And of course I'm sure it's only a matter of time before Tyll will have it all up on InnnerFidelity.

It's always nice to have some measurements specifically for your unit (if I'm interpreting what cizx said correctly), so regardless of Tyll's graphs there will still be some emails sent to Audeze.

Each demo will be limited to 12 participants, and you can only sign up for one of them. Due to the value of the headphones I will reserve the right to be selective about which members can participate, and they must be in the United States.

Do you consider Puerto Rico as part of the United States?! :-p

I would definitely like to try the closed version!

I hear Canada is a state now.  XC up north would be great.
