You should ping Currawong about this cos he was an owner of the LCD-3 & WA7 for a long time.

Hi peter,

While I agree that meet conditions aren't ideal to assess a can, when you keep hearing the same traight over several rigs and tunes, it's hard to dismiss.

Also, I did check the IF measurements you're mentioning and I personally feel is nothing to write home about. I see resonances at 4kHz/7kHz and harmonics of that, an impulse response with big reflection right after main pulse and quite a bit of junk after that, distortion near and even exceeding 1%. I wonder even if Tyll might not be double checking this before publishing.

Yes. And you can upgrade to a better DAC in the future to get more out of them too.

I'd be buying a HE-6 myself if I didn't have the HD800 and Alpha dog (for work) on the radar to buy. Even so it does well for lots of types of music.

 

Comparing HE-6 to LCD2 for metal there is simply no comparison for me, HE-6 soundly trashes the Audeze for the reasons you mention (and additionally I prefer its bass presentation for metal). That said, some here love the LCD-2 for metal, and while I can't even begin to fathom that, it's nice that we can all find our sweet spots in this hobby.

 

You mentioned in another post about auditioning the X at Addicted to Audio - they have it in? Interested since I'm in Melbourne for Soundwave in February and have a long list of headphones to audition whilst there at both Addicted to Audio and Jaben (New Zealand is not a great place to be for headphone lovers).

I felt the stock HD800 were more analytic and dry than both the HE-6 and the LCD-X.

 

The LCD-X are not bad at all, however I found their treble a little weird. :wink:  I don't think it takes a year to figure that out. :wink: 

 

I just love LCD-X's treble. It is clean, transparent and smooth. 

 

About the bass roll off. Had the LCD-X here for over a week now. Didn't hear any bass roll off.

yeah,It seems a little too close to the LCD-3 price to justify buying it. I would just assume wait for a used LCD-3 ,of course,.

This is why it's so hard to find reliable feedback on head-fi...the hyperbole is just out of hand sometimes.

you quotation is highly misleading, and this is why it's so hard to find quality conceived feedback

I think it's obvious he's referring to his own impressions :rolleyes:

 

I read accounts of one headphone laying waste to another on a daily basis here, but I have yet to come across a situation where this was actually the case. It could very well be that his idea of "trashing" is what I would consider a small preference for one over the other...I don't know. My point is simply that I have no frame of reference for what trashing would entail, exactly.

Definitely man.  On Head-Fi every headphone trashes every other headphone on basis of how likable their sound signature alone is to the person talking about them.

Meh... I have the LCD3 and sounds awesome and it's paid for. I think peeps just work themselves up into a frenzy over other's subjective observational nuances all the while knowing that everyone hears slightly (or more) differently on top of approaching every single thing thru their belief system so that the only input that should ever matter at all is a personal audition of the cans with their own amp and dac. Period. Just like tubes vs solid state. There will be those who are willing to argue endlessly about how SS just sucks for a set of cans while there will be others who argue just as strenuously the other way. What about sample variance? What about __________________?

 

The truth is the X likely sound just great and also the truth is the LCD 3 sound great too. I own the LCD3 so I know it sounds awesome. And I know that basing thousands of dollars worth of potential purchases on other people's totally subjective feedback when you know they do not and can not hear exactly the way you do is ridiculous.

 

Listen to both on your system and make your choice. Or buy a Stax 009 or whatever. Its all good. There's choices... My choice is to keep my LCD 3 and be happy.

and i think it's obvious he was expressing his fillings and not taking measurements :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

 

suddenly such "exaggerations" are more than appropriate, and imo welcome

 

but of course if someone take word for word literally, someone who just cashed 1k$+ on his "trashed" headphones, the one may get offended :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

+1. To be brutally honest, if I were asked, I would say the Audez'e line up trumps the Hifiman line up every which way to Sunday. It's subjective hearing, IMO, and the former brand name just works fine for me for my genre of music. There are a lot of other variables, the source, the DAC, the amp so how does one control these variables ? I confess my inability to do so but would welcome others' input.
