Default Audeze LCD-4 arrived today



Straight out of the box and hooked up to the C1100 and they sound simply stunning. This, once I can identify the appropriate headphone amp, will form the basis of the only second system I will have ever owned.

Enjoy your new headphones, they are amazing. I tried a pair in Vancouver and was very close to buying them. The bass is fantastic. I chose the Focals but these are equally as good.

Very nice! Did you decide upon a dedicated headphone amp yet? I bought several including the Deckard and the iFi Pro iCan for its tube or FET output stage.

I personally really love the Burson Conductor V2+. It offers 8 watts of power and is very reasonably priced.

Many thanks for the positive comments. Still breaking them in but already feel that they are tightening up and becoming more revealing. I take my hat off to the designers, despite their weight, they sit incredibly comfortably even after an extended listening session. Regarding a headphone amp, I'm in no hurry and would like to sample a few before committing. Does anyone have any experience of the recently produced Audeze 'The King' headphone amp?

Highly recommend the Dragon Inspire IHA-1 headphone tube amp. Handbuilt by Dennis Had, retired founder of Cary Audio. He had the LCD-3 headphones in mind when designing this amp.

He also makes other tube amps. There is a separate long thread on his amps here on AA:
