Well this is going to be a straight to the point simple review. I did not like the LCD-GX. I found the sound very anemic with no bass or dynamics and rolled of highs. This headset is simply bland and boring. A bag of oatmeal has more character than these. My setup for this impression is Dangerous Music Convert-2 to Schiit Ragnarok 1. Played mostly the new dlc for Destiny 2 and then some Call of Duty WWII. Explosions and gunfire had no oomph. Listened to some music but sounded lifeless. I believe these are definitely geared towards the competitive gamer rather than recreational gamer. So unless you are a MLG player, I would avoid the LCD-GX. Which is a shame because the build quality and comfort are freaking amazing. This is the first time I have had the opportunity to use the new head strap. I liked it so much that I am considering picking up a LCD-2C to play with. It was light for a planar and I could easily wear it for hours without fatigue. But thank you for SBAF and the loaner program for giving me the opportunity to test drive these.
