Best to send it back.

My LCD3s had the same problem and are now with Audeze.

That's sucks... better get an RMA, and maybe you can considering sending your 3 back for fazor also to share the shipping cost.... (and see if Audeze agree to ship them back together on their cost).  The good thing is that the RMA process/communication is quite smooth with the Audeze team and the turnaround is also quite fast (took only 10 days including shipping to/from Hong Kong for my LCD3).

@kothganesh. This is concerning.

It is especially with the XC being released only last October. I've had the 3 for longer and I'm the second user ! Anyway, time for an overseas trip for the HPs.

Yes, I've sent an email to the company. Fazoring the 3 is probably a great idea. Thanks.

Hmm I've not heard of the Headphone Lending Library, do you have a link to the site? I did how ever find a user who agree'd to let me demo a pair 

 

Non the less I'm  hoping the LCD XC will be the middle ground for me that I want. I like my HE 4 much over my D2k, although I give the HE a +3 boost to the bass, from 30-100 hrz, and the ironic part is some times I drop the D2ks bass by about 1-2 dbs depending on the song, and other times it's good as it is.

 

So I'm really hoping the LCD XC will be the middle ground, the taughtness of Planar bass, with the added impact of being a closed back

I havent heard the Denons before so cant do a direct comparison but pairing the XC with my chinese made DIY tube amp is the definition of synergy to these ears.

My cheap tube DV336se has awesome synergy with my XCs also even if it is OTL.
Yeah baby! Nice thumping base. I guess the XC despite being a little on the snobby side likes the seedy part of town also. Likes to frolic with amps of ill repute. Lol
Or my ears are bad which could be a real probability at over 60.

LOL...am listening to the XC with my humble Little Dot Mk 3 OTL amp and yeah, the cans sound pretty decent though bass does not go as deep or hard hitting. Decent combo considering the theoretical mismatch. I suppose the sensitivity of the cans are helping it move along more smoothly.

I am assuming that if I want to remove the headband, all I have to do is remove the small set screw in the square blocks at the ends. Is that correct?

Has anyone tried the LCD-XC with a Centrance HiFi-M8 DAC/Amp? That would be my set-up, so I'm curious as to how they pair up. Thanks!

I tried this set up briefly at Jaben. Source was iPod classic with mp3s (nothing hi res) straight into the HiFi M8. Sound was weak and thin, slightly more tolerable with the bass boost on max. Not sure if this was due to the cans not fully broken in but I was not impressed and neither were the Jaben guys. Suggest you try to get a listen personally.

Yikes! That's not good. I'm surprised, given that the M8 is an exceptional device and the LCD-XC is so easily driven. Anyone else?

Stand options and recs?

I like the Woo stand. It's height adjustable and heavy enough to have an Audeze balance well on it:

One thing to watch out for is the sharp edges on the headphone hanger. In the dark, I went to grab my LCD-3s and slightly scratched my cups lifting it up, not out. I have a black sock on my black Woo stand now to protect against that.

Other than that, I really like the stand too.The metal work is first rate and the design (except for those edges) is great.

Yep, I'd agree.
