LCD-CD weighed just under and i found them to be neck killers. Susvara i can wear forever - A complete joy i often forget im wearing them.

Agree- LCD-x was the same. I passed mine onto my son who had never had anything by Beats HPs before and he’s over the moon with them so a win there! Agree on the Sus- comfort is great.

Going to also chime in, for me, the Susvara comfort and sound signature is a long-session type of headphone. The earcups and stock pads are extremely breathable that I can really forget that they are on my head. Any Audeze I’ve tried has been too clampy for me to enjoy for too long. Focals can be worn long-term depending on the pads.

Fantastic, thank you both. I'm on the fence, as I cannot find really anything missing/lacking with my Abyss 1266. I understand the midrange comment, but a touch of EQ could be quite satisfying in that department. If I didn't already have and love my Abyss 1266, it would be no question about the Susvara purchase. Still going to think this over, as it's more about the finances for me. Selling off my ZMF headphones in anticipation of the Susvara; My VO just sold yesterday in fact, so I'm getting close.

Don’t do it if you’re still enjoying the Abyss. But if you have the finances and really want to try it, the Susvara complement the 1266 well, two completely different presentations of music. You will appreciate your music in a different way.

One of the reasons I choose my Susvara over the 1266 more often is comfort. The 1266 can be comfortable when setup properly but they’re just awkward and require some fine adjustments.

The 1266TC is my fav headphone I use it way than sus. Kinda have a love/hate relationship with sus, it's a very picky headphone with genre and track dependant but when the track is the right one it's sublime.

Sus is always first to go when I need money but always regret selling it so rebuy.

Felt like Sus is the perfect allrounder on my chain. Interesting findings, might be the dac on my end that smoothens out the edges.

Appreciate the honest input.

To me, if you're a vocal/mids preference type listener, the Susvara is one of the best in terms of sublime, liquid mids and vocals that's euphoric to listen to. It is phenomenal in that regard. Paired with the May DAC and the right amplifier, and you'll be listening to hours on end which is quite challenging on the Abyss
