Only a coward would smile sir. I bear myself only with the quiet rectitude of a sinner who lacks the piety to show humility and shame.

Thank you jaywillin for the reassurance as I walk like a condemned man inexorably toward the procurement of the prized Audeze LCD-X's.[/quote

LCD-X...best headphones EVER.

ordered micro-suede pads and headband for both LCD-X and XC... hoping for a bit plusher comfort during the summer months.

I wasn't aware that Audeze offered a microsuede headband.

The vegan option!!
post #3832 of 4904

I'm no vegan (having just finished up a fat filet for dinner) but someone on here mentioned that it was more comfortable and had the same sound.  The leather isn't really uncomfortable to me but I do love the comfort of my T1 plush pads and the leather does have a little bit of stick to it. Options are always good :normal_smile :

Yeah not a bad idea with the weather warming up. Micro suede should be much cooler, though I prefer the look of leather

This weekend I had a marathon youtube session (those MagicOfRahat prank videos make me shart myself) and had the Xs on for over six hours, with only one quick bathroom break. After about 20 mins I honestly couldn't even tell they were on my head.

I agree, despite the not insignificant weight, that the LCD-Xs, once properly positioned on your head, are very comfortable and non-fatiguing.  The warm weather is yet to appear but not anticipating the leather to be terribly uncomfortable in the warn summer months here in NYC.  Also, I don't see myself using the LCD-Xs on the go so not really concerned as I'll be likely using them in the air conditioned comfort of my house.  That said however I have heard that the "vegan" pads are extremely comfortable.

Your case being well stated sir I've found several people who use the LCD's on their portable rigs without reservation. Go figure.

Those new vegan pads in gray look really nice on the Xs, too....I may order a pair just to play around with them.

I have my Xs with vegan earpads. They are very comfy. They have definitely been revised from the brown vegan earpads used on the LCD2s and 3s. The browns were still comfy but much more firm. I wear glasses so I could still feel some pressure on the sides of my head. I don't have that problem anymore with the new black (gray) vegan pads. You'll be surprised how soft they are. Time will tell if they keep their shape for months or not due to their softness.

 

I think the same is true for the leather ones too. They definitely have become softer when I auditioned the Xs and XCs with both leather/vegan on SoCal Head-fi meet last month.

I too am curious about trying the vegan pads but was under the impression that once the existing pads were removed that they couldn't be reattached.  This was based on the installation instructions I found on the Audeze website and that the existing pads had to be "cut off".  Does anyone know if this is accurate or better, does anyone have experience swapping them out repeatedly?
