Audeze LCD-X - Page 264

post #3946 of 5039
Yes but you live in Oregon, so therefore you didn't have a choice.

Ken Ball would have come to your house if you didn't buy the Studio Six and smashed your Auralic for not buying local!

Interesting, I just noticed the LCD-2 & LCD-3 are now rated as listed here on Audeze's website:

•Efficiency: 94dB SPL / 1mW


Am I mistaken, or were they previously rated at 91dB SPL / 1mW ?

Does this have something to do with the Fazor's making them easier to drive? If so, I guess they are closer to the LCD-X now in ability to be driven more efficiently by portable headphone amps.

goldendarko, check the impedence numbers for the LCD-3. I believe the Audeze website says they're at 110 ohm's, whereas the X's are at 22 ohm's. A bit of a difference in drivability if I'm reading the numbers correctly.

Ok, your right, but the efficiency has still increased hasn't it? I'm not exactly a tech. geek so I don't proclaim to understand those numbers that well, but I thought they would be easier to drive if the efficiency has in fact gone up.

I prefer my sennheiser bx 300 mark ii IEMs over the lcd 2,3 and x and hd 800,you can't beat the ear piercing treble and that fantastic boom in the bass not to mention that uncomfortable pain of them digging in my ears

I posted some comparisons of the LCD-X to the OPPO PM1 here, if anyone is interested.

i think your suspicion is not unfounded. the LCD-2 (july 2011 batch rev.2) that i have on hand is rated @ 60ohm and 91db/mW and the 'updated' LCD-2 shows a rating of 70ohm and 94db/mW on their site.

 

if you look around some vendors' site, info for the previous spec is still available for reference. Woo audio is one of them fyi.

Well, for their part, Audeze does say they make improvements quietly as to avoid the whole rev. 1/2/3 type thing that can put off older buyers, but if they can improve the headphones for future buyers it seems like they will keep doing so.

 

Anyway I just ordered a pair of the new LCD-3's with Fazor drivers, should have them Tuesday to check them out.

..and while you're at it, get a pre-fazor pair too to make the review/first impression more informative. the community would forever be grateful =)

mate! imma starving student! tho do update us with a detailed review, would love to hear the differences between an old lcd-2 vs fazor lcd-3. differences might be notable enough to warrant the jump in prices now.

Will do. I've not heard the lcd-3 before so I wouldn't be able to compare the new one against it, but I can give some comparisons between it and my old lcd-2.2's
