1. The LCD-X is still pretty new. I should wait to see how they mature and not jump in just yet.
2. The LCD-3 is a proven design and is only $250 more than the LCD-X. But what if there is an LCD-4 in the works?
3. I'm happy with the LCD-2 so why would I upgrade?
I listen to a wide variety of music, though not much classical. I am not a bass head, but I do like the LCD-2 bass and the overall rich full sound that the LCD-2s provide. I'm currently using an IMac, Itunes with Audirvana, and My files are mostly Apple lossless or AIFF.
I know people are passionate about their LCD headphones and I would love to hear more opinions before making a decision. Unfortunately, I don't have access to examples of each to listen to so I'm relying on you!
