Product Details from the Brand

Any mention of "us," "we," "our," etc is by Audeze, not Audio46

The LCD-XC shares the same drivers and basic construction as the LCD-X, lending it a similar level of detail and transparency. Its closed-back design adds both isolation and a slight lift in bass response between 120-200Hz, making electric bass even more defined. If you want to hear Marcus Miller playing bass right next to you, the LCD-XC is your headphone.

• The Creator Pack comes with the Standard Single-ended cable and our new economy travel case.

Great revision of a already great headphone

This headphone is one my favorite closed backs of all time. It’s spectacular. Has a very neutral sound profile and natural sound.

You Audeze deez nuts headphones, my friend!

This is now my favorite daily driver at work. I was rocking a ZMF Verite Open for a while, but I eventually realized that I needed a little bit more noise isolation at work. I know closed backs are a good answer to this problem, but I've generally avoided them because I could never find one that I really liked. I had heard about the LCD-XC before, but there some some complaints about the frequency response (I don't have the ability to EQ at work) as well as the weight, so I decided to not look further into it. However, reviews about the latest 2021 update to the LCD-XC got me curious enough to take another look at it, and I eventually decided to buy it. After using it for about a week at work, I am completely happy with my much so that I've decided to sell the Verite Open! For half the cost of the ZMF headphone, I get complete isolation from my environment, equal clarity and resolution to the ZMF, a slightly brighter signature (its signature is nearly ideal for me), and a bigger soundstage (at least when compared to using the Verite leather's probably equal to the VO soundstage when using the Universe Suede pads, but I didn't like those pads because the sound signature becomes too warm for me). The only other top-tier closed back I've tried is the Focal Stellia, but I found the bass to be a bit too much for me, and Focal headphones in general have too much of a claustrophobic soundstage to me. I'd also imagine that the Verite Closed sounds pretty similar to the Verite Open. So, if you asked me to pick the top closed-back between the VC, the Focal Stellia, and the LCD-XC, I'd pick the LCD-XC. And, it costs WAY less than the other two! The weight did take a couple days to get used to, but if you're already comfortable with ~1 lb headphones (like ZMFs), then I think you can likely adjust to the LCD-XCs as well. I'm not a large/strong person either (I'm scrawny and under 140 lbs), so I think you can make this a daily driver if you're willing to put up with some discomfort for a couple/few days.
