I'm not going agree with this. I'd take a T1/WA2 over a " well driven HE-6" and I'd take the LCD-3/X over them either the T1 or HE-6 (oh wait...I did already ). YMMV of course.
These LCD-X headphones are picking up where they left off last night...impressing the bejezus out of me. Very clean and transparent headphones. I'm going to have to say that these image better than the LCD-3s...and their quickness and instrumental separation is outstanding. After a little Mozart and Mahler with them, they are really well suited for this genre. Something I really didn't totally feel with the LCD-3s (though I don't really listen to classical music much FWIW).
the HE-6 sound like they have a ton of potential, as of now though, i probably would take a LCD-X over the HE-6 though if i decide not to pursue a speaker amp.
i just like the HE-6's bass, its so tight and controlled, like the bass i'm looking for. like T1 decay but stronger. everything else, i do prefer the T1 though. only thing i don't like about HE-6 is brightness, it gets bright easily, probably cause its still not perfectly driven.
so have you decided if the LCD-3 will go or are you keeping both audeze's?
btw, im still debating on whether just keeping HE-500 and getting LCD-X would be better. i've noticed the HE-500 just lack some sub-bass presence and control that the HE-6 have (something which i really like about the HE-6, its so tactile and powerful and deep sounding, yet controlled) , but the midbass on the HE-500 is actually nicer and punchier.
like this track, the HE-6 presents the bass the best, the LCD-3 does ok as well but different. u should try it on the LCD-X! especially the 2nd half
