So this headphone, with small scale ensembles, including very powerful rock/electronic and also jazz or small classical groups or individual classical performers, does incredibly well assuming a good recording. A very "yummy" and detailed midrange. It is not quite as agile with large orchestral and choral music. However, it may be the best headphone in the world for rock and jazz music. Amazing power and bass, and such a sweet dark flavor to the music! An extremely pleasant listening experience overall, I must say.
Well, I just sold my LCD 3-C's which I've had for a couple of years to get a new fazored LCD-3. One thing that surprised me were the sound differences I've heard compared with what folks have reported. My new fazored LCD-3's are to me MORE powerful in the bass, not less.Read more ›
I once remember having a pair of bose on ear headphones (1st gen) and thinking they had some of the best bass I had ever heard of. LOL. After now 10 years, I have come in touch with the best planar-magnetic headphone in the world. It is truly an out of this world experience, when the source, amp/dac, and cabling is right. Treble just sparkles with its warm live appearance. Mids take the word "liquid" to the next level, and bass is punchy, tight, and some of the most controlled sounding bass I have ever heard. Vocals sound as if you in are in a front row seat. The sound signature of these amazing monitors: Live. And Audeze nailed it with their new driver. I personally have heard the STAX 009 and 007 MKII, they are better in detail, but are much more less fun that the Audeze LCD-3. The lack of bass that an electron membrane produces will forever fall short of a planar-magnetic driver in my honest and humble opinion. Unless concentration on clarity is the focus, grab yourself a pair of LCD-3s and stop the looking. These are built to last, built for class, and built for the best of the best. Construction is rock rock solid. Beautiful polished wood and the most comfortable lambskin leather ear-pads man has ever felt.
All in all, Audeze has just taken Sennheiser's previous standard, and taken it to the next level. Fantastic job, and kudos to all the staff! Cali Love!
These things give me chills.Read more ›
The three star rating is based on price. If they were 600 or even 800, I would have rated it 5 stars but for 1800 with less than top notch clarity & soundstage, it gets only 3 stars.

Beware LCD-3 are not what they used to be. I had to return mine. No bass response anymore and highs are not impressive compared with the previous editions. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Green-eyed Popsicle
