I would highly recommend the Shure SRH1840s. IMO listening to an opera like Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier, for example, eliminates a lot of headphones because of their treble quality, but the 1840s handle this music with ease, and are very good - even out of an iPod. I would put them in the category of a 'monitoring' headphone in terms of their clarity/detail, with a fairly neutral sound signature. Although my main headphones are the AT-W3000ANVs, while they can be used...
I would also recommend that you take a look at the Sennheiser HD-600, which has a very smooth, non-fatiguing, laid back, and quite neutral sound signature, IMO.     The AKG-701/702 mentioned has a very neutral but what I would call 'lean' sound signature, and a wide soundstage.  I liked them for solo piano mainly, but finally sold them as I wasn't using them often. I personally much preferred the HD-600 for orchestral and choral works, but I think it boils down to a...
Version 1 with no returns/issues since purchasing them new in 2010. 'A' version of the grills and angled connectors. 9/10 condition - no marks, scratches, etc. They have been carefully looked after and stored. Also comes with a 2nd cable, the ADZ-5. It came in a wooden box, which has a crack across the top, but is otherwise fine for storage. My reason for selling my LCD-2s is that I primarily listen to my ATH-W3000ANVs with matching amplifier, and have recently...
I look forward to reading your impressions of the HA-5000 ZenErik.
I can assure you that with the AT-HA5000ANV amplifier there is nothing hazy about the W3000ANV sound.
Thanks, MikePio.  It is always reassuring when a fellow Head-Fier has similar impressions of a product!
When connected to a computer via usb the batteries are not used. I have never experienced clipping with mine, but I would suggest you contact someone in Support at Headroom.
I assume you have checked the batteries?
Korzena, I agree with your comments on the amp. although the ANV version may have some improvements. It works well with the ATH-W3000ANV headphones, which to my ears sound perfect on this matched amplifier, but more average on the RWA amp. I spent a couple of hours with the LCD-2/ HA-5000ANV combination last night. The amp. brightens the sound somewhat, the mids don't seem as smooth, and it doesn't seem to impact the soundstage size much, if at all. I prefer the...
Hi kozena, Trying my LCD-2 v.1 with the HA-5000ANV is my next project! I would also be interested in your impressions of your setup with the W5000, as I am considering buying it. For what it's worth, I thought the AT-HA5000ANV was very revealing of the AT-W1000X's somewhat grainy treble, when compared to my AT-W30000ANV and so I sold mine immediately, even though I liked it a lot with the RWA Isabellina. Cheers.
