Dilemma: Audeze LCD-X VS LCD-XC

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I had the opportunity to listen to the LCD-XC on my Moth 2A3 amplifier at the Carolina meet yesterday and it was great. I am very interested in obtaining a pair of these but wonder about the LCD-X model which was not available for comparison.

 

I have done some searches on this site and it appears the main difference is increased bass response on the X model. 

 

I REALLY liked the Moth/XC combination. My question is does the X version sound essentially identical except for the bass response? I have a dedicated listening area so it doesn't matter if the cans have an open or closed design. 

 

PS: Any after market cable strongly recommended for these two headphones?

I only listened to the LCD-Xc too. Its bass is wonderful, it's much better than my LCD-2 and LCD-3, but in other sides, I like LCD-3 more, my amplifier is ear909 monitor version

LCD-X sounds meater and smoother, closer to LCD-3. Personally, I would go for the X.

I would think that the main reason to pick between the two is whether or not you need a pair of closed cans.

 

If you need isolation, get the XC.

 

If you don't, get the X.

 

All things being equal, I always pick the open cans... but if you need to listen somewhere where there is external noise, or listen near anyone else, then get the closed ones.
