Instructions will be posted at midnight (EST) on 11/29 in the first post of this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/645941/headamp-headphone-demos-audeze-lcd-x-and-lcd-xc-sign-up-on-black-friday
justin do you have a store front or place where someone local can come by and listen as I am looking for top tier closed cans to listen to before I make my purchase.
Thanks Charlie

to me the LCD-X doesn't get near that level of brightness (I love my HD800s - but they have always sounded far

brighter than my LCD-3's).

 

The X, for me, has the soundstaging absilities that I love about myHD800s, thanks to the Fazor technology,

and has the richness of my LCD-3, and especially the engaging characteristic

Very well put. And after a few days with the XCs, I've gotta say that the Fazor has continued to impress me. These have even more treble than the LCD-Xs, but are still far from the HD800's levels in brightness. But finally one can own a great and natural sounding closed headphone and not have to "settle" anymore.

That's essentially it. The XCs aren't the final word in neutrality, but they're very natural sounding, but with top-notch resolution and taut bass. I've not seen THD numbers on them but I'll bet they're quite impressive. To me, these are the new reference closed cans. If the STAX 4070s were still being made then I might have a different opinion, but they aren't, so the choice is clear (at least to me).

To me as well.

The Alpha Dogs are fantastic at their price point - I love em, and they're in my messenger bag as I type this.

But the XC's - finally I feel like I have a reference-level closed cans in my office!!
