Hello head-fiers! First post here.
I feel like I'm in a pickle here.. I've read great things about both the LCD-X's and the HD800's, but have seen many to prefer the LCD-X's and their less bright, less fatiguing treble presentation. But here's my problem: weight.
So I've got a pretty weak/sensitive neck(I've had a number of issues with it), and I've read many reviews of the LCD-X's who say it's pretty heavy(600 grams), compared to the HD800's(330 grams).
So, in essence the Senn's seem more practical for sitting at the computer and listening to music/games etc., but what about the Audeze's sound? Would it be worth it to just listen while reclining or laying down to pick them instead?
FiiO X5(or CEtrance HiFi-M8 if needed)
Computer listening not possible
Computer listening possible
50% live rock/alternative(U2)
20% pop recordings
I'm pretty experienced with speakers and I have a theater with acoustic panels and such, and I enjoy the sound speakers give, which is why I'm leaning toward the open-back headphones.
I also had a pair of HD650's for a few weeks, paired with a FiiO X3. Which I enjoyed for the money, and some things I liked better than I did about my speakers, but I'd prefer a step up so I could have kind of an "ultimate" setup.
