I had the opportunity to listen to the STAX 009 via the Blue Hawaii SE and both the design, weight, and sound of the entire system from headphone to amp was simply stunning. I think if Audeze could make their headband like the STAX 009 the LCD-3 ( light weight ) would sound very close through a good balanced amp like the BUDA.
Anyone know if the bumps at 80 Hz and 1.1 kHz are intentional from the STAX 009?
Anyone wanting to compare some charts between the LCD-3 and 009 can look here:
There is no doubt the STAX is quicker and has better treble extension. The quickness may be due to the amp more than the headphone.
Anyone have the Orpheus measurements?
