"Audeze did a magnificent job with the Euclid, delivering IEMs with an incredibly wide soundstage and excellent tonality. The large planar drivers offer exquisite clarity and balance, and the bold design gives the IEMs added character. Coming in at $1,299, the Euclid are aimed squarely at enthusiasts, but they have the sound quality to back up that price tag."
"Audeze's 2022 release was the MM-500 studio headphones; a pair of audiophile grade studio cans that also make fantastic music-listening partners. Featuring Audeze's patented planar magnetic driver tech, along with incredible craftsmanship, the MM-500 are a premium pick that any producer or audiophile needs in their life."
"The LCD-GX is a headset for audiophiles who also happen to be gamers, rather than the other way around. It’s definitely a commitment — this is a headset to use at home, in a relatively quiet space (it’s an open-back design, so there’s a lot of noise leak for both the listener and anyone around the listener). "
"The Audeze MM-500 is going to appeal to a much wider audience beyond the pro-audio user with an enjoyable, high-energy tuning that works wonders with my own preferences such as hard rock, and, a design aesthetic that is simply gorgeous to hold and look at. "
"For those of us whose ears won't settle for anything less than the best though, we'd better start saving. Incidentally, the internet tells me that 'Euclid' is the anglicized version of the Greek name Εὐκλείδης, meaning 'Good Glory' which seems fitting – although yes, I do know that Euclid was also an ancient Greek mathematician, considered the father of geometry. "
"So all things being subjective, I advise you to try them out for yourselves. Yes, you can call them a bit pricey but I noticed Audeze has an interest free pay monthly option available on their website so that's also a possibility. In my opinion they deliver exactly what they say they do and the quality is clearly there. I can't imagine many MM-500 buyers regretting their purchase, and they should sell very well. Highly recommended!"
"Clearly, the Audeze CRBN is a revolutionary monitor. With EQ I think it can take on any other rival, whether magnetic or electrostatic, in any frequency range. Electrostatic phones require a heavy, dedicated amplifier, so of course I use more portable headphones for outside or bedroom listening. But in the studio and listening room I now use a single headphone for both pleasure and reference listening: The Audeze CRBN, equalized if possible to Bob's EQ. It is the most transparent, musical and accurate headphone I've ever heard."
"It’s an enviable place. The 11-time Grammy Award winning mixer has worked on more than 250 albums, 40 #1 albums, one hundred Billboard Top 10 albums, and 40+ Top 10 singles. His client list includes Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Megan Thee Stallion, Post Malone, Lizzo, FKA Twigs, Alicia Keys, Bruno Mars, Imagine Dragons, and The Rolling Stones to name just a fraction."
Having just premiered at the NAMM audio show in Anaheim, CA was the first release of the Audeze Manny Marroquin Signature Series. As any engineer knows, mixing tracks is better done on speakers rather than headphones. Still, using cutting-edge technology, Marroquin and Audeze have crafted the MM-500, a headset that’s capable of consistently translating the artist’s intention when recording.
As a wallhack level headset, its quality, both for casual users and competitive gamers, is unmatched on the market, and finding something to replace it with once you try it out will be next to impossible. For clarity, range, and long lasting quality far above the rest, you have to go with the LCD-GX.
"The former is a more advanced and latest model, giving it an edge over the latter. But while these differences do exist between the headsets, it does not undermine the quality of HyperX Cloud II. The HyperX Cloud II is old but gold and still ranks top among the best."
