Having seemingly read through every thread, review, etc., ad nauseum about the LCD-X, I went ahead and placed an order over the weekend.
Is it a reasonable summation, for those very familiar with the LCD-X, to say that it is definitely a better headphone than the LCD-2, and with regard to the LCD-3, the X is the better all-arounder for playing various genre of music, sacrificing little of the positive attributes of the 3 in the process, and improving on the 3 in some areas......? (I've only personally auditioned the LCD-2).
Congratulations! I owned the LCD-2 for a year and enjoyed it enormously, but after three days with the LCD-X I sold the LCD-2. The LCD-X is a significant improvement in just about every aspect. I also prefer the LCD-X voicing compared to the LCD-3. The LCD-3 mids are delicate and rich--a very beautiful signature, but the LCD-X seems more balanced across the spectrum.
