Wait is this a joke? I can't tell.

Seems like a joke to me.

It better be... Going from early April to early June is already a 2 month's delay, isn't it?

I appreciate all the improvements and all but... I think the pads should be the last issue addressed... especially since clamp is really something that can be adjusted at any given time by the user, and it's not something that can be standardized by the manufacturer for all sizes... headphone bending/stretching has been a thing for years and people never complained [well, save for Sennheiser clamp, but that's legendary].

 

If there's anything else that is severe enough and needs fixing...?

Wow feels like the first review in years. Adding it to first post's list.

 

 

Edit:

 

Really? They think HE400 is single-ended too? "A single-sided magnet array for a set of orthodynamic headphones is nothing new. We saw the array on the HE-4 and HE-400 headphones" Must be a typo because they mention HE400 as dual-ended in the next page.

Comparing the LCD-X to the HE-560 will be a little hard, will have to judge each on their own merits.

 

All I can say is, the LCD-X is very alike to an HE-400: a recessed upper midrange with a little treble spike and strong bass/lower mids.  People who say the LCD-X is Audeze's take on a neutral headphone are fooling themselves.  The LCD-X is audeze's take on a u-shaped headphone.
