Parttimeaudiophile RMAF Reports
Not sure if I'd call it fluff - Scott's a good guy IME. Cheers
While I hope the LCD4 doesn't turn into the Windows 8 of the headphone world, where people just reject the new version, I wish Audeze success because I find the LCD3 just very natural and unflashy and appealing.
There is something very sweet and inviting about the Audeze sound that I don't find in others that are technically better in terms of things like soundstage, expansiveness, or image definition. The LCD3 a phone that never sounds raw or raspy or whitish, which is for me a main cause of fatigue or a vague feeling of artificial sound. Nor is it boomy to me.
And the LCD3 bass is also natural, not as cavernous or subterranean as some, but somehow just fits in nicely with the rest of the spectrum, without any hint of subwoofer-itus (or God forbid, a car subwoofer).
I feel that Audeze has a sound that is uniquely expressive in texture and tonality, and this is precious in the headphone world.
So I hope the LCD4 will be judged as some sort of step up from the 3, for at least for me this would be advancing the state of the art to some degree, even if the price implies more than this.
Well stated - great post IMO.
I feel the same about my X, although they sound somewhat different than the 3. I don't think Audez'e cans are a "quick listen and jot down your first impressions" kind of HP. They take a bit more time to get to know, and to appreciate. That's why I am still looking forward on this thread to critical listening impressions of the LCD-4.
No disrespect meant to the folks who already posted listening comments. These are still really new cans.
Enjoy your music,
>>And now they're saying, sell your EL-8 and buy this special edition EL-8
The Silver version comes bundled with the cable. The cable will also be available separately to owners of EL8 as we had promised. However, the chip supply is limited at the moment and we are trying to get a handle on the release dates.
will you guys release a shorter cable for EL-8? i have a closed back and i supposed this is also designed for portable use....
Just wondering can it be portable with a 2 meters cable ?
The lightning cable is shorter than the regular cables that is supplied with the EL8. For the portables the EL8 has separate balanced cables for Pono, A&K, Sony etc and I believe they are shorter.
Do you want the regular cable to be shorter as well ?
let me check on the lightning cable then, yes regular cable should be shorter maybe for those who are just using ordinary daps.
