It seems very flattering to the ear as most of the appealing harmonics dwell in the micro dynamics. The xc is not like this. It doesn't smooth out the sound although it didn't seem fatiguing either. Pretty analytical sounding. Its more reference like with the focus being more on the whole music and therefore the imaging seems definitely better than the 3. The xc also seemed to shout we me ears sometimes with vocals. Like they had distance from my ear and then when the singers voice escalated quickly, the voice would slam my ear drums. That is actually fatiguing to me though
My experience also....I do think the xc would start to shine with a smoother more bass orientated amp...for on the go, like holidays, the xc will do just fine...

I quite enjoyed both audeze headphones but I just enjoyed the other two more for different reasons. The 3 was very musical, the abyss had a seemingly flawless presentation of the kind of presentation that I am use to, also easily the best imaging I had ever heard. Then there was the xc. It's not that it did wrong it was just easier to see what it didn't do compared to the other ones. It wasn't fair. I think I need to go back and give them some more time to get to understand them.

The XC is nowhere near to sounding analytical?!?!?!?!

No worries Docta, it isn't important. Anyways, anyone else  have any thoughts to on the XC?

Question on clamping. As delivered the XCs are providing too much clamping pressure for my head. I want to adjust them, but the question is should I wait? Do the ear pads crush down a bit over time, or does the clamping pressure remain pretty constant?

 

On the amplifier front, my Asgard is not going to cut it long term. Hoping the Geek Pulse amp I ordered is more to my liking. I don't want to fork out over $1000 for the Bryston, as much as I love its sound quality.

I sent an e-mail to Audeze because I'm having the same issue. I'll report back when I get a reply.

If the fazor thing rubs against your ear, adjust them so that it doesn't :-)

I've tried re-adjusting every way possible. I don't think I have overly large ears. I'm hoping they can provide pads with a little more filling.

With the LCD-XC's original headband, I found mine were uncomfortable because of the clamping, but since doing the mod, they've become very comfortable with just the right amount pressure to stop them from falling off.

I found it easy to reduce pressure with the stock band. Still playing with adjustments.

 

And I wish I could get LCD-2.2 bass out of these cans :darthsmile:
