Audeze LCD-X - Page 116

post #1726 of 9209
They are nice looking but they sound terrible, I just use them when I travel now, but even then I don't look forward to it, but it's better than no music I guess.

They will be driven by my Peachtree Audio NovaPre. It puts out 1 watt @ 32 ohms, maybe I will upgrade later if that doesn't drive the LCD-2's properly.

For some reason Grado headphones never worked out well for me. They are okay for rock music, but that's just about it. I heard the discontinued HP-1000 has a more natural and neutral sonic balance.

my first pair of headphones was a pair of Grado's SR-80's, I thought they were as good as it got back then!

The SR-80 is a very good headphone for its price. :rolleyes:

 

That being said, when it comes to the best offerings of each headphone company, the current flagship of Grado (PS-1000) is IMO not quite up to those of Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser, Audez'e, HiFiMAN, etc, many of which are less expensive. Grado may have an enduring fanbase, especially among bassheads, but Audez'e caught up Grado in the bass department and is all around better. I have yet to hear a Grado headphone that truly impressed me.

 

I want to try out the HP-1000 someday, which is said by many to be the best headphone Grado has ever created.

Yeah I think your right about Grado, I think there are definately much better headphones for the money nowadays and that is a result of much greater competition in the headphone market. I think they have been able to stick around and still do well due to the fact that they are a legacy brand that has been around and produced many good headphones for a long time, but they certainly wouldn't be my first recommendation.

There isn't much difference between Grado headphones. I mean I did some blind testing with SR-80 and SR-225 by myself and I just could not tell difference when using same pads. Only exceptions are PS series which both good bass with a bit more warm sound (older PS-1 has even more bass)

HP-1000 is very good indeed.... but sound quality-wise, I'd not pay more than 1K USD for it (Yes, I bought it 1.2K USD, several years ago.) I have no idea about recent 'upgrades' done by Joseph, but as current state there are a lot of headphones doing better than HP-1000.

I don't really follow Grado anymore, is the HP-1000 their current flagship?

Barry,

 

Just curious: if no music is playing and you turn up the gain on the Valli, how quiet is the amp with the LCD-Xs?

 

Thanks!

I prefer the HP-2 to most of the current flagships. I keep wanting to find something new and better, but so far they don't do it for me.

Found these graphs for the LCD-X. I wonder what anyone with more technical expertise might think about how well the LCD-X performed?

post #1740 of 9209

they look like a mix between lcd-2 and lcd-3 but closer to lcd-2 and not sure about the bass in the frequency response and the 30 hz and 300hz square waves. 

 

 

im still thinknig of selling LCD-3 to buy the X, but im not sure its worth it or not.
