    Audeze LCD-X

    I am sorry, i have not. It was also in my set of choices (blind buy) but i chose the LCD X for the build quality and aftersales services. I believe that within 1000 to 2000 USD there is not much deviation from each other. Its just that they are presented differently. Unless LCD X compared to...

    Audeze LCD-X

    I cannot speak for other headphones but with T1, i prefer the LCD X more for the reason it has low end that lacks in T1 also, T1 sounded thin compared to LCD X and both are really unforgiving to poorly mastered recordings but i do agree that the highs is little bit peaky.

    Audeze LCD-X

    It could also be that, you are just new to this kind of sound (as from what i have understood on your earlier post). It could be really be "too much" at first, same goes if your coming from bright headphones to a darker one it seems everything is smeared out. Let it settle first and give time to...

    Audeze LCD-X

    I think the LCD X has the usual 4K "dip" (Audeze dip) but it also has a slight rise with 6KHz that is why sometimes it is quite bright (bordering sibilant) which is where our ears are most sensitive. Comparing to Beyerdynamic T1 2nd Gen, - this sounds that it is really peaking since it has the...

    Audeze LCD-X

    Hi, I can only attest in my experiences since I have 2 (i think) neutral-bright headphones which are T1 2nd Gen and recently acquired LCD X. I also listen to some electronic/edm genres and at times, it can sound bright/sharp but not as piercing as T1 2nd gen. In terms of bass it has a lot of...

    Audeze LCD-X

    Hi, So last night, I did a comparison of the LCD X using 2 amps which are Auralic Taurus MKII and Burson Soloist SL, I just wanted to share my impressions: Burson Soloist SL (Single Ended) Now, I know why many are saying that this is a good combo. With a full bass, meaty mids and an open treble...

    Hi! I hope everyone is safe during these days. I recently acquired a LCD X headphones at a very nice price. I cannot find any articles that confiirms the output impedance of the SE and BAL of Taurus amp (still also waiting for the feedback of Auralic) and I am just wondering if its compatible...

    Audeze LCD-X

    Coming from Beyerdynamic T1 2nd Gen, i can say that T1 bass are a bit bloated and less defined compared to LCD X. T1 also have recessed mids compared to LCD X. In terms of treble, LCD X is less pronounced compared to T1, it is a little bit peaky on poor recordings but not as excessive and...

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    Hi. I am using T1.2 with Auralic Taurus MKII paired with Rotel RDD 1580. Although i must admit that at some point the T1.2 is quite sibilant but this only happens when it is poorly mastered (mastering is quite "hot") or the singer is singing closed mic. However, if the track is properly...

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    This also my problem. The sole distributor here is Saudi Arabia does not support the repair of T1. They only offer for DTs and other headphones. I actually do not need new headphones, i just wanted the headband to be replaced.

    Hi, Did anyone have experienced that the prints in the Auralic Faceplate are starting to peel off? I have been using it since August 2016 and earlier when i was cleaning using microfiber, the word "Volume" letter E has peeled of. It did not take much effort to erase all the word using...

    Hi ichibahnwrx I have Jriver > Musical Fidelity Vlink (coaxial) > NAD D1050 (balanced out) > Auralic Taurus MKII > Beyerdynamic T1 2nd Gen (balanced) All i can say with this set up is that it is very revealing and unforgiving. PRaT is on spot, neutral though i do have a slight problem in terms...

    Shure SRH1840 and SRH1440 Unveiled!

    Personally, the reason why i shifted away from the 1440 is because of the plastic build which i had trauma with the 940 which breaks easily and very fragile. :)

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    I can only comment about T1 being driven by Auralic. It is fast, tight but can be a bit sharp if not properly matched and/or having bad recordings. It is detailed (just in the borderline of being lifeless/too analytical), you can hear the trail of each pronounciation of the singer, imaging is...
