Out there somewhere are folks that really do find themselves in the middle of the Venn diagram circles of 'videogame fans' and 'audiophiles' - for those such people I imagine the LCD-GX is already on their radar and is definitely worth some consideration. The value to those folks already attuned to such high-grade audio is definitely tangible here. Especially if the headset is used in quiet spaces and primarily for single-player games - this would be the perfect fit; even for its MSRP.
"For $300, the Audeze Penrose is on the higher end for gaming headphones, even for those that come with mix amp functionality and multiple wireless connectivity options.
