What a design though.  SF is gonna look like some kind of PLAYA /  diety from the Mahabharata wearing that around. BLING it up  SF

 

You can get the optional Moldavite 'N Gold Bling Ring microphone for talking into. Pinky finger sizes only. ( did I say how hyped you'll LOOK???)

 

 

 

^ ehhh if i were you i would stop talking 'bout rings or anything ring related cuz the mere mention of them might get someone overly excited. ;)

Okay, so now that it's been announced, I don't have to be so freakin' tight lipped about it.  :D  Listen up you guys, the LCD-X is no mere revision to the LCD-2 and LCD-3.  There is a reason why it is named with a letter instead of being given the moniker of LCD-4.  Based on my audition, even at pre-production voicing, it is nothing less than a generational breakthrough in terms of sonic performance.

 

If you've been on the fence about going to CanJam 2013, just make your last-minute plans already.  That's probably going to be your first chance to hear (and order) the LCD-X.  How good is the LCD-X?  I would put this in my list of the top 5 best production headphones in the world (including stats).  Actually, correction, I would put the LCD-X in my list of top 5 best headphones in the world period... the other four being the Orpheus, SR-007 (which continues to be my personal favorite when paired with the right amp), SR-009 and Abyss.

 

And within it's price range, the LCD-X is easily the most revealing, accurate, transparent and (oddly enough because of its neutral voicing) emotive headphone out there.  If you care about headphone fidelity, you should experience this. Because this thing essentially takes the bar, and shoves it up everyone else's ass.

 

I've also been field testing a new LCD cable, which will soon be announced as well.  And while I have not heard this new cable in conjunction with the LCD-X, I feel safe in assuming that it will become the definitive LCD-X cable for me and many others... simply based upon what it has done for the LCD-3 (over a Cardas Clear cable mind you).

The performance is phenomenal.  If you've ever thought to yourself... "I wish I could take the best parts of the LCD-2 and LCD-3 and do a mash-up, leaving out any flaws" - well then that thought is manifested in the LCD-X.

Well, the LCD-X will in no way make the LCD-3 sound worse.  :D  And the LCD-3 is still a very, very, very enjoyable headphone.

 

But if I had to choose I would take the LCD-X in a heartbeat... just IMO.

When I have time I'll post in-depth about my feelings regarding the sonic excellence of LCD-X AND LCD-XC (since I loved the LCD-XC as well when I heard it).

But, both @warrenpchi and I have been DYING to share our enthusiasm for the LCD-X!

 

Warren has, however, stated almost precisely how I feel about the LCD-X thus far!  And he did quite an eloquent job at that!

More of my impressions to come - just have to head out for work...  But I MUST say that @warrenpchi NAILED it when he speaks of the LCD-X's ability to strip

away the BS, and connect you to the emotive power of the music (which is what matters most to me) - I have often called it "emotive transference" for lack of

a better description.  But when I listened to Donny Hathaway's "A Song For You" on the LCD-X I literally lost it and busted out in tears.  It's a very moving song,

and I've only reacted that way when listening to a couple of larger, in-room reference systems, and my LCD3's + E.A.R HP4 tube headphone amp!

No idea.  Does it matter though?  Sound = good = take my money.  That is our Bushido code.

You know what's strange?  Despite these supposedly being heavier than the LCD-3, I found them noticeably more comfortable.  I think they lessened the clamping force or something, because it definitely felt better on my noggin than the LCD-3.

Um, because it's ready now?  I dunno really.  But I can tell you one thing.  If I found out that such a thing was ready now... and it was just sitting there doing nothing for the sake artificially extending another product's lifetime, I'D BE PISSED!

and I was there with this man, who wasn't a big fan before right Michael?

Or am I confused - but I remember being real psyched that you liked em

so much!!

 

Wish I had more time w/ that Lehmann amp and the LCD-X!

S---, wish I had more time with it and my E.A.R!!

 

Can't wait to sit down with Alex Cavalli too, and finally take some time 

with his amazing stuff.  I've only had limited time with his amps

I honestly don't remember the last time I heard a pair of headphones and immediately wanted one this bad.  I think the last time for me might have been an SR-007 Mk I that was paired with (what I now believe is) a KGSSHV.

 

Mercer, I would love to hear a rig consisting of a competent DAC + E.A.R. HP4 + dat cable + LCD-X.  Can you imagine that system?  Actually screw the DAC, put vinyl at the front of that chain.  :eek:

I wish I was able to live with the LCD-X for a longer period of time (VERY soon) but, as I've said before here in this thread -backing up my friend @warrenpchi's commentary-

The LCD-X was, to this music addicts ears, a revelation.  Much like the LCD3 (my favorite headphone of all-time thus far) I was completely engrossed in the music while listening, much like the picture below (but I couldn't have a pic at the time w/ the upcoming LCD-X):

to your #1: I'm honestly not sure, as are any of us.  However, I don't see the LCD-3 going ANYWHERE (especially with its wide acceptance in the pro-studio world as well now)

and the LCD2 is their legacy product.  So I think both are safe.  Just my thoughts, but I know the team there really well.

 

to your #2: I've never had a comfort issue w/ my LCD2 or LCD3 actually, so I know I might be an anomaly (I also use what I call the "vegan headband" - the non-leather one as

I find the clamping force to be FAR less).  I can wear, and have, my LCD3's for more than 12 hours without break.  However, @warrenpchi and I are of the same opinion again

here with regard to the LCD-X's fit.  I found its fight more comfy, and while it may not be lighter on paper, it certainly felt like it when I was listening.

 

to your #3: I wish I could say more.  But lets just say that during their r&d process they had a breakthrough.  

That breakthrough happened recently...  Thus the short period of time

The new Audeze headphones may indeed sound fine, but this two man hype train, bouncing off each other, making it more powerful with each bounce, is excessive. You've said your piece, move on.

Hey man these new Platinum Cables increased the dynamic range of my cans, so much that I can run my DAP on dead batteries.

Received the GR07 BE and ASG-2 today. Compared to the GR07BE so far,LGQ2 surprisingly seems to sound better! more details to come.....

Have a new ASG-2 in my possession, so far, it doesn't sound any better than my LG Quadbeat 2, heck likely worse. From what I remember, it does sound more coherent than the previous pair, but I can't help but feel these were very overrated.....Let's see what happens with more time...

As soon as I can figure out how to get diamonds onto the wires, I'll contact you for your credit card information. I'm sure that'll improve the soundstage, details and all other claims I can make up.
