    LCD-X and XC Update

    Thanks! I'll try quickly sliding the side up and down a few times when I get home from work this evening.

    LCD-X and XC Update

    Okay, so replying to my own post. I made progress, pretty settled on an eq or two I really like. Almost there, but I still want some more bass (best part of this headphone imo, makes music so much fun). What's the recommended frequency to add the bass shelf at? Also, for my graph, is that dip...

    Looking to upgrade from DT 1990 Pro - Focal Clear vs LCD-X. (Demoing them tomorrow) a few pre-listen / research questions:

    I should also note the clear mg still sounded absolutely amazing. Lcdx just sounded a bit better.

    LCD-X and XC Update

    That is true. I really like the stock tonality and different EQs definitely sound better on some genres than others (and tracks within them, etc). Overall, I love the stock tonality but find it could definitely benefit from at least some extra bass. It's so punchy, lush, and nice

    Went over today and demoed everything, spent nearly two hours doing Clear vs LCD-X comparisons. They were really close, but I went LCD-X. Thanks everyone for the help!

    I want something thats better than 1990, but also has a different enough sound to justify getting the upgrade

    Thanks. So, "2021 revision" is technically a late 2020 revision?

    About to demo an LCD-X today, really interested in it. Anyone know how I could confirm whether a pair is the 2021 revision without having to take it apart?

    Sadly, it isn't, but I've got a few hours to be there. Used a half day of vacation today so I can get done around noon-12:30 est and can be there by 2. They close at 6.

    Additional thought I had: would I possibly gain more by getting an LCD-X instead of a Clear because it's more different from the 1990 since it's a planar instead of a dynamic?

    thanks, good informative thread there. I'm 99% going to stick with open back

    About me: I LOVE energetic music. Listen to about 85% metal, the rest rock/alt/EDM. Some guilty pleasure pop here and there. As for my metal, it's a mix of new/old stuff, but the old stuff I love often isn't exceptionally well recorded. Older Metallica, Megadeth, Testament, Slayer, etc. I got...

    Looking for the best open-ear setup for under/around 500. (mostly listen to metal)

    Absolutely. I'm fully aware that the headphones I chose (and love) are quite unpopular with a lot of folk, and that's okay to me.

    Looking for the best open-ear setup for under/around 500. (mostly listen to metal)

    I decided on the DT 1990, after 3 months so far, I'm in love with them. They sound phenomenal to me (despite how polaring these are in the community, fortunately I'm crazy enough to actually enjoy the stock tuning on the B pads. These cans are incredible for metal and EDM) That being said, I've...

    Did a bit more research tonight. I'm leaning a tad more towards sundara but ****... they're both so close and it's hard to pick one. Sundara sounds like it's more fun though. For anyone that's tried both, which is more comfortable?
