My biggest complaint about Audeze generally, other than the whole Princess Leia chic, is the weight of these headphones. Obviously, there’s an upside in both build quality and overall structural rigidity, but the LCD lineup is by no means light. Their bulk makes them difficult to wear long-term (you’re unlikely to forget they’re there), and they’re not particularly easy to cart around.
Watch out for flying tissue boxes, whiner. Boo hoo. Because awesome has weight, bitches. Feel the awesome! Feel it! Feel it!
Yeah, size aside (or perhaps even because of it?), these new updates sounded incredible. I’ve asked for a review sample, so with luck we’ll be able to dig into the what’s-what.
Audeze has been a must-stop at most headphone-oriented meets and shows for some time, but if you haven’t heard the new-new, I’d get the lead out and get your head into a new set. Already got yourself a pair? Audeze is apparently offering an upgrade path.
Last thing is a teaser — given the tantalizing rumors I’ve heard, Audeze is very likely to keep their brand moving, growing and innovating. And that’s exciting.
Kudos to the team — I look forward to seeing and hearing a lot more from these folks in the future.
