Hi midnightwalker. Nice collection there. I was wondering, have you posted before which one you enjoy the most? Which one gets the most listening time? I thought about the LCD-XC but bought the LCD-X instead. I am really happy with my purchase, BTW.

 

Out of these 3, I prefer the XC which offers more bass and because it is a closed can as it serves my need better. The X is more neutral, balance and has wider sound stage. However, I spend most of the listening time on my 1plus2, I am more on-the-go person than a desktop guy.

often wonder if i should have gone with the lighter wood color then the purple heart... do they sell replacement woods for the XC?

I've both the LCD-X and HD800 at home and they both complement one another nicely.
For vocal, rock, accoustic, I'll always grab the X whereas for classical and watching TV series/movies on my computer, I'll always go for the 800.

Thanks for the reply. I saw that you had the LCD-X for sale recently. The buyer will not be disappointed.

I actually find myself wishing I had more high-quality acoustic music in my collection than I do when I put the HD800s on and absolutely nothing I've heard can touch them for holographic sound in any form of video, including games. Still the only Sennheiser cans I own or am prepared to own - that audition drew a line straight through at least 4 other TOTL candidates and a host of lesser cans. The LCD-X is very different for me - more instantly likeable but ultimately I believe the HD800s are the headphones with the greatest scope for improvement with a better source and amp than I currently own (Hugo/Taurus).

You nailed it. As much as I like my LCD-X, the HD800 still wins in terms of scalability.

Interesting comments.  I originally purchased HD800 with Sennheiser Amp (HDVD800 or maybe it was HDVD600?).  Tried them out for a week or so, but was a bit uphappy.  Went back to the store I bought them and did a more consistent audition using same amp and with Chord Hugo (I think they had the first one in the US from CES show) with LCD-X/XC, LCD-2, LCD-3, HD650, & HD800.  I ended up LCD-X and Chord Hugo initially. 

 

In any case, fast forward to now, I have more significant equipment (or at least more expensive) to test against.  So I couldn't resist the opportunity to get the HD800 again when I made my final GS-X payment.  With the recent influx of equipment and my now deeper knowledge of the headphone world, I am curious if I gave the HD800 a fair shot the first time around.  So, it will be interesting if you are right on how much the HD800 scales (which I am inclined to agree with).  I was pleasantly surprised how the LCD-X scaled with better equipment.  Bigger soundstage, more refined bass (maybe a touch less), and new level of detail/resolution.

That's the dangerous thing (to the wallet and relationship) if we don't put a stop on how much we are going to spend on the amp and sources biggrin.gif

i dont want to have 2 headphones - so i can have only one.

after listening for 2 days using lcdx and hd800. - im keeping the lcd-x

 

i believe the hd800 has wider stage - it is good but not all the time- sometimes it makes it too wide it makes the music not right .

the hd800 is great for acoustic music . i have a lot of songwriter music files and its great with it - but the lcd-x is great too.

i dont listen to classical 

i listen to a lot of rock music .- i prefer the lcd-x for this .

 

the lcd-x - most of my  music sounds so good 

with the hd800 some sounds so good , a lot sounds ok but a lot too sounds not good

some music the hd800 is so fatiguing to listen to , i dont enjoy it.

the hd800 is very comfortable to wear .

the music using the lcd-x is full bodies , energetic and engaging

the hd800 sounds sterile at times

I had the xc and hd800. Ended up selling the 800 although i still believe it is a very good pair of headphones. Plays well with the genres i listen to but somehow, got lured back to a warmer sound given by the xc.

Wow, glad that you made your decision and it was a great one.

Better source and amp than the Hugo/Taurus? :blink:
