Anybody own a set? idk

I'm considering getting a pair of the LCD-X. Would love to hear from anyone who has experience with that model, or any of their other products.

For $1,200, they should cook you gourmet dinners, do your laundry, and perhaps even offer sensual experiences of which humanoid bipeds are not otherwise aware smile

I'll be interested to hear what you think of them...

I experienced a price quote, and they have some new $1600 in-ear phones, too.

Me, I'm happy with my Sony 7506 and Fostex T20 phones that I've had for 30 years or more. And speakers.

Honestly, I'm more interested in them for listening than working on them. I have Ultrasones, ATH-M50x, AKG K240, etc for work, and they all do the job fine. I'm typically not one for using headphones in the mixing process for anything other than a reference check.

I used/loved Stax Lambdas many years ago. They're still here somewhere...

I'm interested in them or Sennheiser HD800s... Internet reviewer rumors seem to say LCD-X is more spacious and open. HD800 is more neutral/accurate/revealing. If used with Sonorworks or other, some of that may resolve. I would like to hear them of course, but that may prove difficult. But a high-quality pair of headphones will last a very long time and be exceptional the entire time. I do find headphones very useful in mixing.

The alternative is upgrading my IEM's. I have 6 driver 64Audio right now. They were replacements for a pair of JH Audio 10 drivers - both custom moulded. The JH Audio sounded a lot better. The 64Audio fit better. The plus is getting better sound every time I play live. The downside is that I don't find IEMs to be as immersive as headphones. Headphones are so much "bigger" sounding. Probably due to sound hitting the pinae - I don't know. The 64Audio are adequate for live. I don't love them though. They don't sound "great" and the JH Audio ones did. More drivers seem to matter a lot.

But the alternate presentation is useful to me. I just haven't decided whether its worth it to go "high". It probably is. I just haven't got there yet.
