I still have not received the LCD XC. The package tracker says that it should be here tomorrow. I will enjoy them this weekend then send them on their way on Monday. I'm really looking forward to it and I am super excited to be a part of this tour. Thank you so much.

The HD700 was delivered to HPiper Tuesday afternoon so it's close to the end of it's long journey.

Loved them.  Probably the most comfortable headphone I've ever had and that's saying something.  Ran them out of my vintage Pioneer Spec stack and they sounded awesome with excellent bass.  I'd buy them for the right price for sure.

They assured me that a signature would be required! :confused_face(1):

 

Oh well, at least they arrived safely!

Sorry! They weren't left on the porch. I guess I should have said "Found the fedex guy on the porch waiting for my autograph."

The XC was shipped this morning on it's way to the next on the list. Thank you Justin for this awesome opportunity!

The LCD-X arrived today and I've been listening to it for a few hours as of this moment. Gear-wise, I'm using the LCD-X with a balanced Norse Audio Reign cable on my Audio GD Reference 8/Master 8 stack.

 

As I've mentioned earlier with the LCD-2, the stock yoke rods are a bit tight on my head, but the softer pads and headband negate that somewhat. Comfort would be much improved with the extended yoke rods currently installed on my LCD-3. At $1700, Audeze should just ship every pair with the 1" longer yokes instead of forcing big headed people like me to shell out an extra $30. 

 

Soundwise, the LCD-X is airier with more tipped up treble than it's older brother. It's the better all-rounder and worth looking into if the wife is forcing you to cut back on your headphone collection.

 

The LCD-3 is truer to what I feel is the traditional Audeze sound - a linear frequency response with a solid amount of bass and laid back treble. It provides a better complement to headphones like the HD800, T1, and HE-6. While it doesn't smack you in the face with detail, it's all there if you listen closely enough. 

 

I'm off to do some more listening and will update with additional thoughts.

I received the touring LCD-X unit today. They are muuuuch more comfortable than the LCD-2 from my experience, despite being heavier, which is great news! smily_headphones1.gif
