    Haven't seen a single mention of a "failure" in this thread (which surely must be *the* definitive Audeze LCD-4 info dump on the entire internet) - unless you count some slight, induced buzzing way out of the normal range of use as a "failure" ...and I haven't heard mention of this anywhere else.

    Maybe he meant "sonic deficiencies" when he said 'failures'...
    I don't think enough people have these to have any actual failures pop up just yet!

    If there were "sonic deficiencies" then that must have been the pre-production units....the production LCD-4s are in the top 3 headphones of all time that I've heard. My review in case you're interested, is in my sig. [​IMG]

    How would you say it compares with the Abyss ab 1266? 
  5. MacedonianHero Contributor
    Let's just say the Abyss don't break my top 10. [​IMG]

    Right on! I'll never forget how excited I got when I found out planar headphones were actually a thing.

    Preference, sure - but I'd be very interested to see a list of 10 headphones that technically outperform the 1266. I think they are beasts.
  8. MacedonianHero Contributor
    ^ I'm glad you like them, but in my opinion, they aren't in this very select club.
  9. Trance_Gott
    Which do you think is better HE1000 or LCD4? SR009 is first place for you I'm sure.
  10. potkettleblack
    Care to name your top 10?

    I was trying to be diplomatic...but here goes:

    In no particular order :
    HE Edition X
    T1 Generation 2
    Top three are as I mentioned before.

    Listening to the hd800 out of the Teton would put it in your top 3.
  15. MacedonianHero Contributor
    I doubt it...the GS-X Mk2 is VERY good at showing me what the HD800s are capable of and anything else would be a colouration of what's there. I've heard them on some great other amps as well (both tube and SS through the years). Amps can't make up for the differences between the HD800s (which I hold in VERY high regard) and my top 3. Transducers can only make up this difference.
