All three of the leather ear pads feel identical, as do their headbands. The only noticeable difference is of course the vegan pads, which are a bit more plush/soft. Plus they don't stick to the side of your head after awhile.

When I first got my LCD2.1 nearly 4 years ago, the leather pads were firm, but thinner than all of their pads are now.  Later, I got the LCD2.2, and the black leather pads were firmer, and much thicker.  I actually think the sound was overall a bit more distant to the firm pads keeping the drivers further away from the ears.

 

Now, with my LCD-X, the black leather pads are the same thickness, but softer again--these are close to perfect.  These don't seem nearly as heavy as the others I owned, even though they are the same weight.

Ordered a 4' 3.5mm terminated black silk for my XC at work.  Got the 3.5mm figuring there was at least a slim chance of using the XC on the road.  Black silk is out of stock so still waiting for it... the hardest part.

Which is brighter- the LCD-X or the TH-900- or pretty close?

TH-900, although the treble on them didn't bother me.

TH900 is just north of neutral...LCD-X is just south of neutral...both are masterpieces.

+1. The TH-900 are kind of bright but the treble isn't bothersome à la Grado SR325, Beyer T1 etc.

The XC can get a little fatiguing with the wrong amp/source. Nothing extreme though. I'd love to hear the X one day. Next on my list.

must have a bad XC... no fatigue whatsoever with mine on my WA7.

Does the cable drive anyone else Bananas on the X? I guess with all the Audeze models. Mine keeps tangling itself or twisting itself into knots. Weird thing is only use it at the same spot and it still does it.

Seriously, every time I listen to these 'phones, they blow me away.. even with my NFB 15.32….! Looking forward to amping them even better;)

I use a custom 20' cable that BlueJeansCables made for me, but yeah, I notice the same thing....and I have no idea how it ends up like that

 

Thankfully the headphones sound just as good whether the cable is tangled or not :D
