Audeze LCD-4 - Page 68

post #1006 of 5039
Maybe proportional to the membrane thickness?... just a guess.

An electronics guy at work said 1.5 telsa is enough to pull poor old Nikola out of his grave screaming. ..lol

The Rare earth magnets can be bought cheap on EBAY...but as Mr insider said god knows how much a specialised mould cost to design and make multiples off.
Then cast...

Audeze has been aiming to position themselves as makers of the best headphones in the world. If we put the sound aside for a minute, The HEK was indeed an issue for them on 2 fronts: Technology with the nanometer diaphragm and price with a price above the LCD3. These 2 elements independently of the sound as we talk about perceptions here where an issue. The answer was 1.5 tesla and $4000 to try to keep the higher end positioning. I do not think it will work for 2 reasons. 1. People are not that stupid and everybody can understand that you need more power to move heavier stuff but that additional weight (diaphragm and magnets) is getting in the way big time. 2. There are no glowing reviews on the sound, as the marketing has not been done right compared to Dr Fang beta program and lots of time for reviewer to write their stuff.

I guess my old Lowther PM-5A with 2.3T would have done that and given Nick multiple organisms too. biggrin.gif

Lol,

I like magnets.. but can't see the attraction myself.

Like my desk fan business, it never took off...

The Fazor LCD-3F/X touched my ears too - very distracting and uncomfortable.

Did you try the pads Yoga? Mentioned in the previous posts.

This would be a very interesting thread if they were priced the same as the HEK or a little lower.

A new Audeze that has the signature of the LCD 3 but has clear improvements across the board. That sounds great to me. Really great. This is great news guys! Take my hand, let's all get excited!

Unfortunately nearly everybody that has reviewed them has taken the price into consideration (as they should).

What would you think if sennheiser released the 2016 Momentums at $1000? The sound would, and will never get the credit it deserves. And that's the real shame about this situation.

It would be very interesting to be a fly on the wall in their management meetings and see what kind of damage control they are planning over the final quarter of this year.

I say that but they've clearly weighed up the risks and margins and are doing this to help recover the incident that happened at the start of the year.

Disregard everything I just said.

I'll see myself out.

No Middy, I had them months ago before opting for the Abyss. Nice to know a pad change circumvents the issue.

I am guessing the price will come down significantly unless they get a ton of 'wow this sounds incredible' reviews. we'll see where it lands...

It's something to consider when I order my 3f. Just wish I could afford the 4.. Just remodelled the entire down stairs... I got my OPPO HA1 passed the wife.. 4k no chance.
I hope Tyll has a LCD4 review unit soon.. No disrespect to reviewers here..

I meant the people that spend the time to get out of mp3 and research how to improve their listening at the best ratio quality / price :-) For the rest, I am in complete agreement with you!

I believe Tyll tends to just not review the things he doesn't like. The LCD xc, nearly all of the grados, HD700 and so on.

Amazing the number of people on this forum that rave about their i products and how they sound. Not even close to a good dac but they keep pushing their POV
