 Will the X be good for metal? 

Only on the cups,

 

It will be great on music.

Thanks for the review!!! I agree 100%


I am interesting in getting lcd-x but might just keep the 3s since im happy with them and my other headphones hd 800, t1, and he-6 might be too similar sounding.

I prefer the x bass over the 3, but the lcd-3 have a different sound over my other headphones and might be better for me.

Between the 2, they are as equally impressive to my ears

For those of us maintaining a stable of high-end headphones I really appreciate the sentiment here. I don't think these can hold a place amongst my collection, but I'm very keen to hear them for myself.

 

Excellent review Macedonianhero, thanks.

Well, I cannot decide between LCD-X, LCD-3 and HD800 as stated in my review. Every time I think i decide which to let go...it pulls me back in :))

Man, I empathise. Every time I think I can rationalise my collection a little I listen to the one on the cusp of going and I'm like "Maaan, for this one genre, nothing else I have touches this!".

I've been into this audio hobby since the mid '70s and have read more than my share of the Absolute Sound, Stereophile, Hi Fi News and Record Review, etc., etc. I am truly impressed by the reviewing AND writing skills of head-fiers like yourself. Without the pressure of advertisers on ones' back, we can likely get more objective information to boot. Well done. 

 

+1

 

I also much prefer to read head-fiers' reviews or just loose impressions than professional (should be 'professional') reviews that often doesn't seem to be very objective. Especially I dislike 6moon reviews with their vague language they use that often does not mean anything.

That's interesting! I have exactly the opposite problem - everytime I had two or more headphones, I just kept prefering one and wanting to sell the rest as I felt bad for having too much money invested in more than one headphones while I only have two ears... The same goes with amplifiers and DACs. Guess I am not a true hardcore audiophile. :(

That is not true emertxe. I would love to be more decisive as you and go with one type of sound.

But you are not limited to one sound signature... I guess you can easily choose one or another headphone depending on genre or mood and be always happy. One could also try to own two or three mid-fi headphones with different signatures (and not feel as bad about spending too much money) but then you are getting lower level of performance each time in comparison to what you will achieve with high-end headphones. That's really tough!

Thanks for all your comments about amp pairing with the LCD-X. This next question will probably show you why I'm a Jr. Head-fier.
I was all set to order the Bifrost/Asgard 2 stack, until I read comments about how great the X sound with the Gungnir/Mjolnir stack. I understand the difference between the amps and the X are rated for 1-4W. However, I don't understand the difference between the two DACs. As the G/M stack is double the price of the B/A stack, I wanted to ask for a little more input. Is the G/M stack worth the extra money?
Thanks also for the comments about the Lyr amp...

All the Best -

that right,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 I think.

That is true, but my wallet would need stiches if I buy the X . So you can say " X marks the spot "  (on your wallet).

They are also different. It is not just about the price tag. You can now choose different sound signatures from Audeze based upon your tastes.

Except that there are many who are suggesting the X is not 'below' the 3, rather on par with it.  Listen to both and decide for yourself regardless of the price...you might just get the sound you want and save a couple hundred.

I haven't compared the Gungnir to the Bifrost directly yet.  My Bifrost is off at Schiit getting the "uber' analog stage upgrade that is supposed to make it closer in sound to the Gungnir.  I'll compare them when it comes home.  That said, the Gungnir offers true balanced outs that mate with the balanced inputs on the Mjolnir.

Maybe you could sell HD800 and LCD-3 and stay with LCD-X, having something from both worlds?

 

I think it should also be considered that Audeze headphones are extremely expensive in Europe... You could get HD800 for 1/2 of LCD-3 price few months ago ( = for the same price as LCD-2)! I've had a look at LCD-X pricing in Europe... Some german shop listed them at 1699EUR o_O That's... absolutely extreme. Even Ultrasone ED12 are 400EUR cheaper! :eek:

Not only for Audeze. Same for Hifimen, Stax, etc.

Dollar is substituted one to one by Euro and in case of Bryston BHA-1 plus 300€. The Bryston costs in Germany 1699€ (round about 2300$) :-(.

If I have to pay only 1395$ I would buy it immediately.
