The weight and the clamp will be the deal breaker

YYMV ?? The sound is what broke the deal for me.

Yeah, I am not a huge fan of the LCD's, LCD-x was better than the rest but not up to HD800 standards IMHO,  LCD-3 only got better when paired with the ragnarok, which is not available for the masses yet.  As far comfort alone, the LCD's are a few steps behind the HD800's, again IMO.

They are for the laid back listing type. I cannot do it for long I keep thinking what I am missing.
I took the hd800 on my vaca to NC
The LCD 3 are home in the case

You heard the LCD-3 (C) or (F) with the Ragnarok?  What did you think?

Well, not sure what you mean by (C) or (F), but it was the first time listening to the LCD-3 that they actually started to impress me.  As I recall (this was last October) they had better bass impact and separation, and seemed to me to have more energy...if that makes sense.  Still did not beat my HD800-s on the ragnarok but the gap was closed slightly, The LCD might have had more bass ?presence? but not better overall SQ.

 

Okay looked up the C or F thing, not sure which one they were but it was last October at CanJam if that helps.  When did the "F" version come out?  Like I said not a fan of Audeze in general so have not been keeping up with their latest.

F version is Fazor and came out late 2013...December I believe. There is a serial number that indicates the beginning of Fazor. C is pre-fazor I assume. Or it could be Chocolicious. 

post #11547 of 13885

F = Fazor 

 

C = Classic?

post #11548 of 13885

On the LCD2's, just check the serial number. 54XXXXX is where the fazor change happened, late last December.

 

IMO, the LCD2.3 (fazor) are a nice compliment to my HD800. The Senn is clearly the better can but I find the Audeze is more euphoric and is my "fun can". Luckily, I have found a tube combo in my WA2 that sounds great with either can, so no more switching tubes back and forth.

I've been following this thread for awhile but I was wondering if anyone happened to have any good cases for theirs.

 

I know pelican makes a great bomb proof version but for just carrying it and storing it I'd like something slimmer and easier to handle. 

 

Any suggestions? 

post #11550 of 13885

I have been looking at this model for a while... but none of the reviewers have mentioned if it will hold a HD800 or not yet... but it looks like it would be big enough:
