Hi Maxvia, you are correct, I am a lover of wood modified headphones.
I really started thinking about the AUDEZ'E LCD-3 right after I saw the Norse Audio thread.
The AUDEZ'E LCD-3 with a Norse Audio cable is just plan beautiful!
Then adding a Sieveking Sound Omega headphone stand in Zebrano wood and I can't help myself!

So I guess my next question would be, out of the three headphones that I own which one is most similar to the AUDEZ'E LCD-3?
Is the AUDEZ'E LCD-3 different enough from what I own to be a worthwhile to purchase?

Thanks again for all of your help, this Forum rocks!!!

I heard/owned the LCD-2s for a brief stint a while back. I just listened to the LCD-3s/TH-900s side by side at a headphone meet last week out of music I am familiar with.

 

I was very pleasantly surprised by the LCD-3, it was much better than I had expected. It was also significantly more comfortable than what I remember of the LCD-2. However, I still much preferred the TH-900. Of course, YMMV.

Audez'e LCD-3 are much different from all of you headphones. They are not bright like your other headphones and really are a great choice for rock music. HD-800, HE-6 and TH-900 are much more similar with those you alreasy have.

Your la7000 would be the closest to the lcd3. The bass is tighter with less bloom on the lcd3 and also retrieves more detail from the music. The lcd3 also has better placement and separation of instruments. The la7000 is a funner can that is good for a closed can, but the lcd3 is a step up.

Out of the WA6 the LCD-3 sound awesome.  They sound so good that the only other system I thought sounded better is the STAX 009 via Blue Hawaii SE.  I just wished the LCD products were lighter and utilized the headband system that the STAX 009 headphones have.

Well you seem like an analog guy, and the LCD-3 is an analog-like headphone, as opposed to the HD-800. I'd say go for it. Comfort, however, will inevitably be a problem for some. Nevertheless, I like to think of it as more of a neck problem than a headphone problem :)

I'm not sure your current amp would be a good match for the HD800s.   Not a good match with the HE-6 either.  

 

The TH900 or the LCD-3s seem a logical choice.

Nice set up CrazyRay! You've got quite a nice collection there. I'm taking a chance on the TH-900 myself. Just ordered them in fact. They have them in stock right now at HeadRoom with a 30 day return policy with full refund

I would only consider the TH900 if you needed a closed reference phone. Open reference can be had a heck of a lot cheaper.

 

OP, if the LA7000 is your favorite what is it you like about it?
