I did a very critical listening test A - B ing the Audeze LCD-3 vs the Fostex TH-900. Very high end capture material, tube based amps, best DACs. I chose the TH-900s.
It is a very very personal evaluation essentially. Both are incredible and outstandiing. I like like the Audeze LCD-3 but I want a can with good sound isolation.
Part of my evaluation and choice was based on the closed headphone design. So I wonder has any one done a critical listening test between the Denon TH 900 and Audeze's new XC (closed) design version.
The Denon TH 900s have recently gone down in price I see. It makes them a better deal if economics is an issue - rarely at this level - seriously.
So what's better the Denon or the Audeze in closed can design they each offer today?
