CanJam at RMAF 2013 Preview (And Exclusive Early Reveals!) - Head-Fi TV - Page 8

post #106 of 358

ah... i was thinking maybe i should save up for the hifiman he500 and look to see if i can find a discount on it during christmas time so i can get it for even cheaper but all these new phones... i think the new audezes are a bit out of the price range that im willing to pay for though the lcd2 can be considered if i want to jump on the audeze land... im also interested in the new fostex can, im not too big of a fan of the t50rp. the notion that hifiman may be releasing a new phone despite jude didnt mention they would in the video also makes me think maybe i should wait for a bit before purchasing the he500 even when i have gathered enough fund. the new jh ciem is also interesting though the price is again a bit more than i would like to pay for. the alpha dog, i should also watch it closely...

Understandably, there's a lot of speculation here about the thinking behind the pricing of the new Audezes. However, I don't anticipate that Jude or Tyll will be posting interviews with Alex and Sankar in which they explain their business model. What I do expect to see is an extremely long CanJam 2013 thread in which the consensus re: the sound of the new Audezes comes into sharper focus.

I'm not going to put too much stock into CanJam impressions.  I'll wait until after the fact where the major reviewers start getting their pairs and write well thought out reviews on them.

As an owner of the soon-to-be basic model LCD2.2, I'm getting intoxicated by the news of the LCD-X and XC. They should really rename the whole range from LCD to LSD!

Depends how hard it is to get an impression for how they sound. I am sure LCD-3s can be made accessible on the same rigs. If there's a significant difference or improvement, it will be audible right away. If there isn't and it has to go to detailed reviewing for that, then that's another message right there. :)

Been there, done that...with a few mods ;)

The problem I think might stem in their supposed different target responses.  LCD2,3 targeted to be warm/dark, whereas X, XC targeted to be neutral.  

 

In meets and store audition type situations about the most you can get out of a headphone is overall tonal balance, so I expect there to be a huge divide in impressions based off that alone, because people are immediately drawn to headphones depending if they like their sound signature or not.

He'll be waiting until after release for some reviews to come through after the initial hype "train" begins to die down I guess. I'll be doing the same. Mainly to see what some of the opinions are after the new toy syndrome subsides a bit. After all headphones go through a flavor of the month period where everything is 100x better than ever before.

 

Mind you I'm sure these will have a lot to offer, just interested in more concise comparisons/bigger consensus. I'm sure I'll be able to try them at my local store anyway as they stock Audeze.

No doubt there will be a lot of hype and new toy syndrome as well.  What I'm really looking forward to is something like Tyll sitting down with all 4 Audeze models on desk, and spend a week or two comparing and contrasting them all together and writing a 4 page review with measurements.  Make it happen!

 

Of course as much impressions, pictures and videos from RMAF are nice as well, it helps feed the hunger.

I await any info on Denon showing up at CanJam and showing their new/old partnership with Fostex back in play. Or just showing an improved model line regardless of who makes them. biggrin.gif

I'm hoping to see 4 separate photos depicting shane55 with the entire Audeze line(!).

Well I am getting a JH Roxanne with carbon fiber the minute they sell. And that is not a speculation. The money is ready.

Can't wait to hear impressions on the new LCD-XC and X, I have a feeling that either of those 2 is going to be my next big purchase, if they improved upon the LCD-2/3's darkish voicing and balanced out the sound, I may just have to buy them ;) Plus the XC, ABSOLUTELY STUNNING.

Or a Lyr 2, Vahalla 2?

Something special at least from the hints I got from Jason back at the LA Meet (sorry, nothing too specific)...
