    Looks like your cable problem is solved, good deal.
    I was about to recommend Wywires Red for a good cable in your price range.
    I've now gone from Alex' Red to Platinum cables, for both LCD and HD800, but the Red is a great starting point...
    Give Alex a call, y'all, regarding any cabling questions. He will likely answer the phone himself.


    ps. I am not affiliated with Wywires, just a very satisfied customer.
    Feel free to PM me with questions or comments.

    I'm also a happy customer of a Wywires Red cable and would recommend it as a great entry level cable. It was my first upgrade cable I got for my first pair of headphones (Mr. Speakers Ether C Flow). I still use it with that headphone.

    Yes. Its the same braided cable.

    I did a-b test with the red heimdall h2 cable. And they are very much the same in sound. So i didnt keep the h2 cable. Its a really good quality cable for sure.

    Audeze will swap your premium SE cable with a 4 pin XLR Premium cable for free. Just contact them. Both cables will be of the same quality, just different termination

    One of my drivers died. So much for hoping for a trouble free experience this time.

    Very troubling. How many months old is your headphone? How many hours per week on average do you use the headphone?

    Cool. I contacted them as well as Wywires to see what my options are. Haven't heard back yet, but this seems like the best option. Then I can just get a xlr to 1/4" adapter for equipment that needs a 1/4" single end.

    Oh no I thought it was sorted now!

    I had it for about a year maybe a couple hundred hours. I'm not that worried and Audeze always had a fast turnaround.
    I don't want to get anyone worried since I know the 100ohm history, these things happen. In the past 2 years my yggy, abyss and PS P5 failed.

    So was this a 100 ohm unit? Important to know - those are expected to fail, would be more shocking if it was the 200 ohm version that most are. I can't think of a single confirmed failure of a 200 ohm LCD4 driver - but I think it's expected that given a long enough timeframe all 100 ohm drivers will fail.

  12. RCBinTN
    How old is your 200-ohm version?
  13. jlbrach
    about 6 months or so...sent it back to audeze 2 days ago

    May I inquire as to the cables you're using for your LCD-4?
    I have the Wywires Platinum and well-satisfied with the sound...

  15. Audio-Phile
    Very interesting, hadn't heard a confirmed report of a 200 ohm failure before....were there any warning signs?
