What was the final pricing on this combo?
Received mine today. Did anyone else get the wrong power cable for the H10? I selected the 110v at checkout and it looks like I got the 220v.

Don't feel bad Concerned we both got screwed I too received the wrong plug. Somehow I got a euro wall plug.
Interested to hear what you think of the H-10.... I know you like the LCD's
Exciting news group! We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out and are now on the way to you! Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.

If there’s anything else we can do to make your Massdrop experience better, feel free to contact us via “Contact Support” button in your transaction page: https://www.massdrop.com/transactions
Does the MassDrop "support team" even exist, I've sent them several messages with no reply, or is it that i have to wait till some unknown date to get a reply before 12am pacific time.
We have some great news everyone. Our vendor has informed us that inventory will become available to them within the next few days. They will be working hard to prepare this order for shipment and aim to send it from their location by the end of the week. Transit time to our warehouse should take around 2 days. Currently, we are trending for everything to be shipped out of our warehouse by 9/15.

Expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 9/15 or sooner if something comes up.
Is there any news on how we will be able to choose which coverings we want on the pads I still haven't heard anything from customer support.

I got an email from Massdrop the day after the drop ended asking me which type of earpad I wanted, since it wasn't an option when I committed.

So you *should* have gotten a response by now ... not saying you did, just saying you should have ... because that was a week ago ...

Nothing. Absolutely nothing is what I've heard from Massdrop regarding this issue and that is after contacting customer support TWICE! I've been checking my email every day since I signed up for this drop including the spam folder and have received no email asking which type of ear pad I wanted. Lambskin just in case someone from Massdrop actually reads this. I'll just try contacting Massdrop again for the third time and hopefully get an answer.
Thanks again for joining this drop! With your help we were able to make it successful for the community. We've just submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Audeze LCD-X + Gustard H10 and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.

As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where we'll break it up into individual orders and ship them directly to you! The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 9/15.

Rest assured that we will provide you all with updated information regarding the status of your order throughout the process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 9/8.
I don't see the option to choose lambskin leather or microsuede earpads?

I didn't see the option either when I went through checkout. I sent Massdrop an email through customer support about it two days ago but so far they haven't responded =[
Not to be a wet blanket or anything, but remember that, in business, nothing's really free. Although the thought of it is exciting.
LCD-X is the choice. It benefits from all Audeze has learned while creating the the LCD 2 and 3, Audeze calls it its flagship product, and frankly just take a look at all the raving reviews of the X. To get it now with a fantastic amp for free is amazing. Even if you have an amp you love you could just turn around and sell it and recoup some of your money you spent on the LCD-X.
I am thinking of adding an Audeze to my collection. LCD-X or LCD-3 ?

"Among the legions of headphones currently on the market I could only find four that I would characterize as flagships. They are: the Sennheiser HD 800, the Stax 009, the Audeze LCD-3, and the Audeze LCD-X. Each of these headphones has some flaws, but none of them has what I would consider fatal flaws, like huge variations in frequency response, or high distortion, or limited bandwidth, or odd colorations—anything that obviously distorts the music. Having listened extensively to these four flagships, the headphone that presented music in the most astonishingly accurate way is the Audeze LCD-X.

The LCD-X has the fewest and the smallest flaws of the four contenders. I’m a very meticulous guy when it comes to finding faults in any piece of audio equipment. In my experience, there are precious few transducers that are so close to flawless that pointing out their shortcomings is merely nitpicking. It was difficult to discover the flaws of the LCD-X even after listening to them for five months with the superb equipment and the superb program material I have described above. "

"The LCD-3 is a remarkable example of the planar-magnetic design. My only small criticism is that it has a darker than neutral quality that can diminish the open quality of live music. "

I appreciate the well informed opinion. I just got the LCD-X and have been listening with my Pono single-ended, and it’s the best headphone I can remember ever hearing. Maybe I won’t even investigate the Audeze LCD-3 at this point; there’s a number of other things that I can explore to improve things, but at this point I’m quite happy with what I’m hearing.
what's the difference between these and the LCD 3???
SecretAsianMan
LCD-3 is higher impedance and usually needs a more powerful amp to sound its best. The LCD-3 is also a darker, more bass-heavy sound than the LCD-X. LCD-X is closer to neutral, but still has some bass-emphasis.
