"The LCD-X and XC with Fazor technology have achieved a new dimension in soundstage for Audeze that was not audible in their prior offerings. The sound is not only wider but it is much deeper. The separation between instruments is also much better. The LCD-X because of its open design sounds bigger and better with separation. I can hear further into the recording as there is more air between the instruments. The XC gives the listener more isolation and is obviously better suited for closed listening."
"The speed and transparency (and now coupled with improved separation) is still top shelf, and yes, Audeze is still the benchmark in this industry. On top of it all, the LCD X and XC always managed to keep me engaged in the music. Once again Audeze has raised the bar for other companies to follow."
