    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    Massdrop x Liquid Carbon X Discussion

    I have come to a resolution that is fair for Avenson and myself. I have picked up a brand new LCX from Drop. This will ensure that warranty applies if any issues happen. Also, after further discussion with Avenson, it appears the LCX I bought used was a lemon from the beginning. So I am sure...

    I use the LCX in my review process so I needed a replacement quick. I am keeping an eye on the LS as it has peeked my interest a lot.

    I dont want to wait that long. Good idea though. I am waiting for a response. In their defense it isn't a true Cavalli product. But still....

    So yeah the LCX has broken yet again. Same issue as before, the gain switch shorts out. But hey, it lasted a week this time. I am going to resolve the issue with the repair company. I am going to get a brand new LCX and I probably will sell this broken LCX for parts or as is. I am tired of...

    I like the DAC from the 788 better on the LCX. The Geshelli is good but it isn't THX good.

    Massdrop x Liquid Carbon X Discussion

    The THX amp section is amazing but not as powerful as the LCX. The THX has a great DAC that I find pairs well with the LCX's warm tint of an amp. The THX amp is more analytical where the LCX has a slight warmth to it. The differences in DAC between the THX, Geshelli and the iDSD is noticeable in...

    So after a few days, my LCX is still running great. I am very happy. I am remembering why I love this amp so much especially paired with the THX AAA 788 dac via se and the Geshelli Enog 2 Pro balanced.

    I am glad you are enjoying them so much. I find myself doing the same thing, grabbing the Edition XX for a calm and relaxing evening of music enjoyment.

    The LCX arrived today in good shape. So far the LCX is working well, the buttons feel more stable and harder to push then before, maybe an upgrade. Had to shutdown all gear as a bad thunderstorm system rolled into the area so my listen session has been cut short. But the LCX has reaffirmed my...

    The LCX arrived this morning in a badly beat up box. I am going to go through it with a fine tooth comb and then hook it all up and give it a thorough listening. I hope it all works good.
