I think a headphone with croc leather would be a great seller.

Except they'd probably make it look like something from the Flintstones.

Ships with a pound of ambergris.

I knew I shouldn't have googled that but I did it anyways.

What ambergris? That stuff is used for making perfume.

Heard them again yesterday out of the Liquid Glass. They are a great headphone, the best I've heard yet.

 

My only complaint is an upper-mids emphasis that I imagine would be fatiguing after a while. But perhaps it was simply giving me what the DAC and amp were offering.

 

The bass is to die for, easily trumping my LCD3 in terms of clarity and detail. The soundstage and separation are wonderful to behold. If they were $3k, I'd be seriously tempted.

 

Agree about the styling and comfort. It's a wonder they couldn't do better.

I hope this technology continues to develop with thinner diaphragm and deposit voice coil.

The abyss' bass beats the lcd3s bass in terms of detail? Wow thought the LCD-3 bass was already as detailed and layered as it comes! Wonder how the abyss would compare to the 009s in terms of clarity and detail.

Well the OP said that the Abyss doesn't come close to the HD800's in terms of those areas. And I know the SR-009 is better than the HD800 again in those mentioned area's. So go figure.

Yeah - I'll take the HD800 and the HE-6 over the LCD-3 in those particular areas.  "Bass quality (resolution detail)"   I'll take the LCD-3 for it's bass quantity (slam)
