    I find XC a very unforgiving headphone. When i stream low quality source, for example some low quality youtube videos, it does not sound good. My other lower end headphones which are more forgiving perform better. However, when i stream high quality source, for example from Tidal (Tin Pan...

    How Many Times Have Your LCD3 Headphones Been Returned to Audeze for Servicing (RMA)?

    Sounds like XC buyers are losers. I will not buy Audeze product again once my XC is out of warranty. It went in for drivers replacement twice already in less than 1.5 years.

    Lotoo PAW Gold Touch - Touchscreen, 4.4mm Bal, USB DAC, Bluetooth

    I went to that shop 3 days ago and the owner told me she got a new shipment of 10x. It wouldn't hurt to call or message her. I'm pretty sure she is able to commit mentioned price even after those 5x sold out. Check it out. However, i'm not sure if she will ship outside Singapore or not...

    Lotoo PAW Gold Touch - Touchscreen, 4.4mm Bal, USB DAC, Bluetooth

    Has the opportunity to audition LPGT today and was very impressed by it. Was provided with Dita and an unknown brand IEM (but it sounds expensive with a $300 cable). The SQ on the expensive IEM brings out tons of fantastic SQ. I would say similar or could be better than A&K Ultima + 64audio tia...

    To me, it's still the best closed headphone i've ever heard. But you will need: - lossless source - high powered headphone amp Hope you will enjoy your XC. Congrats.

    New TOL A&K DAP : the AK Ultima SP1000

    It's the biggest mistake to buy expensive IEM based on other people's reviews and likes. All of them are correct in their assessment and likes because all of them have different set of ears with different hearing power. Some can hear from 5 - 20kHz freq range but most cannot. Some can't even...

    IMO, sound quality is already defined by the amps and headphones. The limits of SQ are at the amp and headphone. And the cable is the tricky one. I did hear differences when i switch cables. I look at cable as kind of passive EQ. Some cable does block high freq and thus sound comfortable to...

    I love my XC too and regarding the brightness issue, it depends on what headphone amp you are using too. Every headphone amp changes the sound quality (characteristic) of XC. One has to find the right one for one's ear and the search is endless and very subjective. When i first heard Seinheiser...

    I went to CanJam Singapore last weekend. Bought iFi micro iDSD black label. Connects it to PC with downloaded driver from iFi. Insert Audeze XC 61/4" jack into it. BLOWN AWAY!! It has everything that i ever need, i.e., Bass boost which did not mess with the mid/treble (most time i turn it off...
