From what I read on another thread somewhere, people started doing silly things like sifting through boxes to try and find the one with the "best" FR printout causing a hassle for dealers/distributors.

 

P.S. Out of curiosity, I asked for my graphs, and it took < 1/2 a business day for it to arrive via email.

Already have the LCD-3C, so it will be interesting to compare.


You won't regret it I have been sampling this combination since Hugo launch in England and I can truly say they were made for each other, Hugo
Is good with HD800 etc, but though the word is often overused, I think there is a wonderful synergy between x and Hugo!
Love the 3s too but provide a different experience. Will be interesting to hear what you think?

Just listened to the X's for the first time last night, and I think I am going to like them very much.  The sound signature seems to fall perfectly between my HD800 (brighter) and LCD-3 (warmer).  By the way, my LCD-3 is the pre-fazor version (e.g. "classic").

Just picked up a Dangerous Source and I am really enjoying the LCD-X with it so far. Will be spending a chunk of time with the combo this weekend.

My Hugo is in the doghouse atm - its the form factor that annoys me - but Taurus into LCD-X leaves me with zero complaints. 12lbs plus packing wasnt much fun to cart through the streets of Bangkok but the stocky little beast feels like its bolted to that desk, and I have absolutely no problems accessing any of the switches (which are all clearly marked, btw).  Swings and roundabouts, I guess.

Hello,

 

I'm interested to buy an LCD X.

 

I have also an HD800 but after 2 years with it and tried it with several amplifier I found it lacking of body, cohesion and too diffuse.

 

The LCD X interest as it seems an evolution of the LCD3 with better soundstage, more clarity.

 

The first question is : 

-can the LCD X match my expectation ?

-the confort are good to hear for 4-5 hours ?

I suppose it all comes down to whether you need isolation and portability. They both sound gorgeous, but I prefer the open back of the Xs giving an Open soundstage and lack of fatigue

Well, I think hundreds of posts here and quite a few reviews would suggest that it is in the qualitative ballpark of what you are looking for. To briefly reiterate from personal experience: I have A/B compared the X and the HD800 and would generally call the X richer and fuller, but the HD800 airier and larger in soundstage. None of this is controversial, I think.

As to fatigue from the weight, I think 4-5 hours is pushing it, but it depends.

I think LCD - X and LCD -3 are both brilliant they just have different presentations. The 3 has a deeper bass and is slightly warmer. I personally prefer the X with the equipment I have , after a long run -in.
The X s are heavy, but your neck muscles get stronger, I've definitely worn them for more than five hours, no sweat! But you need to build up to it.
They are just fabulous headphones, very detailed, spacious and with beautifully well-defined bass .
The X s have no sibilance in the treble ( that I have detected) something I have noticed in the HD800, which just tends to take the edge off enjoying them fully!

But as always try before you buy, we all have our unique tastes!

+1 - after having pretty serious neck pains for a month or so they have started to subside.  It must be that my neck is stronger now which in my opinion might be a good argument for using LCD-X/XC.  Listen to great music AND get in shape at the same time ;)

I currently own both the HD800 and X, so thought I'd pipe in with a few impressions.  They're both stellar cans, but quite different, and I find I go back and forth depending on the artist.  Associated equipment: Hugo & Headroom Balanced Desktop amp, WyWires red.

 

As mentioned, I find that I prefer a particular headphone with a specific artist:

 

Alison Krauss:  Senn
Diana Krall:  X
Oleta Adams:  Senn
Norah Jones:  X
 
Sophie Millman: Neither - prefer my UERM.  ;)
 
I just picked up the Muddy Waters Folk Singer CD, and it's splendid with both cans.  
 
In my experience, because the cans' character are so different, I find I need a bit of time to re-acclimate to the sound after listening to the other one.  After listening to the Senn, the X sounds too closed off and muddy.  After a while, the X sounds fine and rich and musical as I know it to be.  
 
Then going back to the Senn after the X, the Senn sounds too open, diffuse, thin.  But again, after a while, my brain remembers its inherent attributes and all's good.
 
Comfort wise, no contest, the Senn is the most comfortable headphone I've ever owned in the 8-ish years I've been in the hobby.
 
Bass and impact wise, straight out of the Hugo, the Senn is a bit lacking so I use my Headroom amp when I need more thump.  But what I gain in thump, I lose in liquid musicality, and so I go back and forth with the amp.
