I really like the Balancing Act (EML Mesh 300b and TSRP) with the X. I've used Liquid Fire, Soloist, Grace M902. I expected the Balancing Act to be better for me. I will have an Apex Teton from the loaner program very soon. 

 

I've now had my X for 12 days and I can hear a good improvement from burn-in. I also ditched the stock balanced cable and using the Q cable from my 2.2 - makes a good difference in dynamics and things seem livelier.

For those constrained by a budget, it would be deeply unsatisfying, to change to an LCD-X, only to then hear the LCD-4 announcement and want to change again!

 

I am going to hold out for the LCD-4. Afterall, it is hardly the fact that the LCD-Xs are in a different league to the LCD-3s.

 

+1 (I do not own an Audeze headphones recently but I just agree that people should stay with what they have since these LCD-X phones seems to be rather a step towards something bigger, more perfect)

^^ And earcups made out of a newly found reserve of unobtanium rendering the whole headphone 200g lighter.

200g lighter per earcup at least!

I am starting to rediscover some songs, because of the excellent treble on LCD-X, songs  that I never truly noticed before .  

 

The Mozart Harpsichord Concerto sounds just amazing. I cannot get enough of that treble ( i never thought i would be this fascinated in this manner by the treble before )

I guess your HD800s, like it was for me, only made you slightly afraid of the treble. You never know what type of treble you're going to get next. :)

 

Few headphones pull the trick of excellent treble detail, attack and extension, while keep things civil and very enjoyable. Stax does that successfully.

I never enjoyed the treble this much with HD800. The treble is cleaner here with no sign of harshness or sibilance. It is just amazing. Never heard any stax yet, but I am quite positive you would love the treble on LCD-X.

Agreed that the mids of the LCD-3s are a very special thing to behold. But the LCD-X are outstanding headphones in their own right. They're treble presentation with a better sense of air and improved instrumental separation are also very special. Imagine an Audeze headphone with top notch bass and an open sound / balanced that is intoxicating with pretty much any genre you through at it.

ALL OF YOU NEED TO SHUT UP.  I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO KEEP READING THIS THREAD!!!!!

 

:(

 

I'm either buying Dubstep Girl's -3s, or getting a new -XC... but now I'm thinking I need all three of them.  Please, for the love of my sanity, just tell me these are all terrible and not a significant upgrade from a Beyer DT990, and that I should have just stopped at that one all those years ago.

 

Or hook me up with an Audeze discount code.
