Yea, many of us wonder how David would rate the LCD-X and XC that launched after his comparison was finished.  You might get an idea by reading his reviews of the LCD-2 and LCD-3, although those reviews are pre-fazor.  Many new cans have been introduced since David closed his thread, those reviews would be interesting too.  Many of the new cans are reviewed on Head-Fi, just need to search a bit.

So I'm quite familiar how they each sound and base on their price range, I do feel the K7xx offers better bang for buck than the HD600.

I understand that and I have heard all those headphones you own. I agree that k7xx is a great bang for the buck but is it really a "better" headphone than HD600. 

 

Edited: k712 to k7xx

I had own both K712 and HD600 before.

K712 slightly lacks nuance reproduction and 3D imaging compare to HD600.

Thanks for your input RCBinTN, I'm well aware of the LCD-X reviews at HeadFi and all over the web. I'm just curious how David would rate the LCD-X against the LCD2 and LCD3. To my ears, the LCD-X sounds better than the LCD2 & 3.

Ah, sorry man, now I see you already own the LCD-X.  

Just a guess, but David might describe them as the "King of Transparent Darkness" or something similar :-).

LOL.....thankfully LCD-X is not the "Prince of Darkness" Audeze is known for. Although the highs are not as hot as the HD800, I still find it very detailed and definitely not as dark as LCD2F.

Right.  If I remember correctly, David described the LCD2 as Prince of Darkness and the LCD3 as King of Darkness.  I like the sound of the LCD3F (at a meet) but prefer the brighter sound of the X/XC.

Same here, I prefer the sound of the LCD-X, I tested all the LCDs thoroughly before making the final decision. I like the transient slam of the LCD-X too, very dynamic indeed, sounding like the real percussive instruments.

at the same time, the k712 has a larger L-R soundstage and a bit more treble energy.

 

really depends on personal preference. I think both headphones are quite excellent respectively especially since they can both be often found at discount pricing.

I wonder how "similar" k7xx is to their bigger brother k712.

Well, the K7xx uses K702 65th Anniversary drivers and from what I've read the K712 Pro does as well?  I'm guessing all three are the same headphone, with minor external differences maybe.

Reports seem to vary a lot. The guy I bought my K712s from said he tried the 7xx and they sound like a "lower" version of the same headphone rather than a different headphone entirely. Similar, but not as big and full.

lol... of course he would say that if he is trying to sell you a k712 for more $$$ than the k7xx. unlikely to be any really significant differences worth the price difference. the k712 is based on the k702 annies and the k7xx is the k702 annies.

Of course, it makes total sense that AKG would sell three separate headphones that sound the same, two of them at the same price. That's MUCH more reasonable.

You think it's a joke but reality can be comical. The K7XX is for one particular marketplace, sounds the same as the K702 anniv, and K712 -- if you change pads. Cheaper MSRP than the K712 though. To my knowledge, the only difference between them is the pads (that's where I assume the perceived sound differences come into play). Wouldn't be the first time a company sells multiple headphones that sound the same. They've got different versions of the K550 that sound the same and look the same too. Beats and Skullcandy may have made this a big trend.
