I didn't read this thread yet, but does anyone have advice on burn-in for the XC?

Listen/play music/pink noise for a week. The cans will come alive, at least in my case.

 

Thank you.  I experienced a similar break-in period with my new X.

I’ve been listening to the HD800 and the LCD-XC a lot lately.  The HD800 is like your booty call girl. She will do some things to you that will make your toes curl, but she lacks something that makes her good for a long term relationship (Listening for more than 2 hours).  She is the wine and dine type of girl (only the best amps and cables make her happy)

 

 The LCD-XC is the wife type. She’s good for the long hall but can get a little heavy (Literally) and boring at times (so true in a marriage).  It doesn’t take much to make her happy (No need for a pricy amp), But she will show her appreciation when she get gifts (Connect a decent amp).

Its the reverse for me. Can listen to HD 800 for 7-8 hours. But XC is max couple of hours (I love the XC sound) but just need to take a break in between.

The XC has a good cup size, nice and round.

Opening the back is an instant warranty void, not something to be taken lightly for $2K headphones.

I don't think it does, they won't even know. There's no seal or anything. 

 

You can order grills from Audeze, so if you can swap LCD-2, X, or 3 grills yourself then I don't see the problem.

Let me quote from the LCD-XC warranty card, the one that came with my LCD-XC and I'm looking at now:

 

"Please note that any removal of the wood cups will render the warranty provided hereunder null and void."

How would they know it was open. are there any sensors or void tap connected to it.

Not that I can see.

Posting the frequency response curves of my X and XC, for your info...

Easy to see the upper-mid boost of the XC.  And, easy to hear it, too.
