    Massdrop x Hifiman edition xx

    I enjoy every listening session I have with the Edition XX. I look forward to the time I can use it. I love my Edition XX. It is the perfect can for chilling and relaxing.

    Awesomeness. I am glad you are enjoying them. That stock cable is the worst.

    Massdrop x Hifiman edition xx

    I have owned my 4xx for close to 2 years and they are in excellent shape. I changed the pads to Dekoni pads as I found the stock pads to be uncomfy. I haven't had any issues with them whatsoever, build quality is top notch.

    Massdrop x Hifiman edition xx

    It's possible that only one review unit was passed around. I bought mine during the second drop. Not sure why so many limited reviews but it does seem a little odd. I know that gear used can make a huge difference in sound interpretation and everyone hears differently and has different...

    Massdrop x Hifiman edition xx

    I reviewed them on my channel and on Drop.com and I don't have an issue at all with the peaky treble or lean bass. I am sensitive to the upper mids/lower treble regions, if they are aggressive. I find the XX to be very smooth and relaxed in those areas. Here is what I said in my review on...

    I have only heard the LCD-1 briefly at a recent head-fi meet. Not near enough time to compare to the Edition XX. I hope to get a set in some time for review and compare.

    Sounds like a good plan :)

    Massdrop x Hifiman edition xx

    I have had my Edition XX for about 6 months. Haven't had one single issue with quality. I think the XX is very well built, especially for a Hifiman. As for sound, depends on what you want. I think the Edition XX is a wise choice. End game, hmm not sure as that is hard to define, everyone says...

    I have 0349 and mine are hazy free. Just a bunch of laid-back lushness that I absolutely love.

    Massdrop x Liquid Carbon X Discussion

    I am in the opposite corner, I have the 788 and the SDAC-B and LCX, and don't see a legit reason to justify paying for a 789.

    Massdrop x Liquid Carbon X Discussion

    The 789 and 788 are similar but totally different. The similarity basically ends with the THX tech. The 789 has more power but the 788 has the DAC and Dirac and equalizer. I really enjoy the 788, it is my baseline amp for all my reviews.

    Ooops sorry for the typo, still trying to wake up. I mean heavier then the HD600 and heavier then most of my other headphones. I edited the other post, the proof of my error is in your quote :)

    Massdrop x Liquid Carbon X Discussion

    I have the Monoprice Monolith THX AAA 788 dac/amp which is different then the Massdrop THX 789. I understand about the weight with the Elex. I too find them heavy and a lot heavier then most of my headphones, especially the HD600.

    Massdrop x Liquid Carbon X Discussion

    I have the Focal Elex and the SDAC-Balanced with the LCX seperate. I just played a few treble prominent songs and the Elex and LCX seem to have a nice blend. The treble is not as ''aggressive'' as it can be on the THX 788. It still has a presence but is not as fatiguing. The LCX adds just a...

    I am in a crunch with reviews and also impatient :) Plus I love the LCX. I already have the 788 so the 887 isn't a priority for me at the moment.
