Pros: Extremely well extend and Tight bass. Full, Rich, Juicy Mid range. Crystal clear, well extended High
Audeze also gives you 1/4" to Mini plug converter just like Grado.
This is my first impression of LCD-XC
Extremely well extend and Tight bass. Bass is even deeper than LCD-2 rev.2 that I have. Well controlled and really have tightness.
I would say this headphone delvers the best quality of bass.
Full, Rich, Juicy Mid-range. One of the main differences between XC and any other LCD series is Mid-range.
I would say it is lightly forward where I felt X, 2, 3 was neutral but yet laid back around 3kHz.
However, XC delivers Mid-range amazingly accurate. It is very detailed and juicy!!
Crystal clear and well extended High. One of my main problems with LCD-2 was extension on high.
It was somewhat restrained. Now with XC high are Crystal clear and you can hear a fantastic extension without getting rough.
It is truly amazing how audeze delivers high frequency range with XC
Amazingly accurate Imaging and Wide stage. The other problem with LCD-2 was small Staging. Although imaging was accurate, sound stage was very
compressed. Yet XC has extremely wide stage. I would say a little bit smaller than Sennhieser HD800 but still bigger than most of open back headphone.
Imaging is even more acutate then LCD-2. Now when I listen to audio track, I can feel where the instrumentals are located
Even though LCD-XC has so many good modifications on sound, they have critical problem. It is extremely heavy..
It is 100g heavier than LCD-2 Rev.2 So it is total of 650g...
After wearing them for hour, I had to take it off and rest for few mins in order to maintain listening.
