I'm trying to make out Dubstep Girl's impressions but they're all over the place. Basically what I'm getting is that LCD-X is more akin to an LCD2 but more aggressive sounding, while LCD-3 remains the top Audeze overall.
nope. i said the LCD-X is LIKE the LCD-2 BECAUSE it is more aggressive. the LCD-2 is also more aggressive and forward than LCD-3, which is more laid-back.
i dont think LCD-x is more aggress or forward than LCD-2, they are almost the same in that regard. the LCD-X has better treble and more coherency, resolution, etc. like the LCD-3, its better than LCD-2, though they sound similar. the LCD-X is alot like LCD-2 but better and not as dark and closed in and congested. however, it is NOT laidback and creamy like LCD-3, but it also doesn't have as good of a soundstage as LCD-3.
the LCD-3 and LCD-X overlap each other in performance, neither is better neither is worse. i see it more like HD 600 is the LCD-X and HD 650 is the LCD-3, its the best analogy i can give.
