It's funny how Fang took so much anger from people for releasing headphones too quickly and now he's making everyone wait to punish the infidels. Plus it looks like he's been busy in the IEM/DAP market.

 

Then there's Sennheiser, Stax and beyer who release flagships that last and last.....I prefer this model...at least my wallet does. :p

You neglect both the concepts of sales volume and competitor pricing in that equation.  Maybe they feel they haven't been moving enough of the the LCD-3s.

Audez'e can always pull out a LCD-3 R2 in a few months.

 

This is Audez'e we're talking about! If it's not veiled and drivers aren't dying left and right and wood cracking, something is not right. I'm standing by with toilet paper/screw driver.:veryevil:

 

The LCD-X will come in October but the Toilet-X will be here by November if history repeats itself.

Absolutely agree, in my experience from their price range the LCD-X can't be better than the LCD3. They may have different sound signature but over all performance the LCD3s are still on top of them

Your comments are highly speculative and I really don't understand them....sorry. If they haven't been moving many LCD-3s, wouldn't they lower the price? :rolleyes:  And with regards to competitor pricing, the HE-6s run $1300...so why keep the LCD-3s at their current price? Or introduce a new product that competes with it?

it would be great if Audeze released a high impedance headphone, or something really efficient, it will probably never happen but it would be nice

If you'll remember, the LCD-2R2 was only released due to a spite of driver failures they had to better improve reliability. It happened to also affect their sound. And yes, the LCD-3s have also had their issues too...but remember both the LCD-2 and LCD-3s have been out for a few years at least. I've been lucky that my LCD-2R1, LCD-2R2 and LCD-3s have never had any issues. The cracking wood issue on the LCD-2s was due to how they were formed for the mini XLRs. They copied the design from the LCD-3s to put this problem to bed once and for all.

 

I'm gonna personally wait and see how these new headphones' perform with regards to reliability before considering purchasing any of them...I am interested in the LCD-XC as a closed option though.

Last fullsize phone..the he400 has been out a while now and the he6 is middle aged by now.. Anyone know why hifiman is not reacting on all those new higher end cans popping out everywhere since recently? Anyone know of any problems? Just being curious here!

 

I believe that they're releasing an HE-7, aren't they?

 

Also, anyone have news on the new Fostex TP? Old/new driver, etc?

Complete rumour so far...anyone hear anything substantive? 

post #85 of 361
I think after hearing about all this news people are on their toes waiting for news from the hifiman camp...AND Mr. FANG KNOWS IT.. I think he500/he6 owners maybe could shift towards lcd-x if its really as neutral and less dark then the lcd2/3.. Am going to contact the maker of my custommade amp to ask if my new amp will also pair well with audeze as well..as its being made to drive a he6 redface.gif as this new audeze can makes me really curious!!!! biggrin.gif

Hopefully with much better quality than the originals. But in the end, I think these are just all rumours, no?

Oh I remember ALL OF THAT. Just messin around. :D.

I'm hoping this is the first problem free product launch for Audez'e. It seems likely given their past experience now.

 

Also very curious about the new Fostex planar. Have they been studying mods people are doing?

No comment.  ;)  And that's the last thing I'm gonna say (or not say).

Bingo!  :smile:  Not sure it was obvious, but the new LCD-X is not a wood model.  Wood, especially premium wood, especially premium zebrawood (or bamboo, or whatever) is EXPENSIVE!

Hopefully this two releases go better...but as I mentioned, I'm gonna sit back and see how it goes before I consider going with the LCD-XC.
