Nah, these are Australian dollar prices. I actually thought that price for the TH-600 wasn't too bad - another local shop is advertising it for $1499! Prices for stuff can sometimes tend to be a bit high over here .. but I don't want to go down any too complicated route as I want peace of mind with regard to straight-forward resolution of any warranty issues. Anyway, yeah I will post back later with the conclusion. I could still decide to take a chance and order the Fostex...
Hi, just checking back in quickly and saying thanks to MRC001 (as well as DavidA and Sonic Defender) for your insights. I feel 'educated' now in terms of how I am expecting the LCD-2 to 'Wow' me when I audition it. I'm not pinning all my hopes on being transported to a whole different league of bass enjoyment, but instead being more open-minded about what magic it can do with a few different genres.  I expect I would probably love the Fostex TH-600, if there was a shop...
Thanks heaps fiascogarcia, DavidA and Sonic Defender for taking the time to offer comments on my query.  fiascogarcia - "they do have a wonderful bass" - this sounds encouraging, that's the sort of thing I want to read about the current LCD-2. I will definitely use your suggestion and try using the Audeze website to confirm the manufacture date - great advice. Yeah, I gather from my research that the treble has been improved in the recent one or two iterations (of the...
Hi, I have just sold my HiFiMAN HE-500s, and should be buying a new LCD-2 in a couple of weeks. It looks as though there is one shop in my city that has them in stock and I will be going there to audition them properly before buying, ..but anyway I have a couple of questions - in an effort to try to make my expectations realistic (as I will probably be in quite an excited state when I go to the shop). 1). Can anyone comment on how the bass of the latest revision, LCD-2...
Hi, Just wondering if anyone who has owned / auditioned a couple of these headphones can offer me any brief opinions regarding my question... * Momentum 2.0 - Wired * NAD Viso HP50 * Sony MDR-7520 I auditioned the HP50 the other day, really liked it and was on the brink of buying it ... but they didn't have it in black. So may be ordering it through the same shop tomorrow. Nowhere for me to listen to the other two where I live. The Sony has been on my wish-list for...
Hi all... Just wanted to say thanks very much to SonusAudio, dweaver and zazex for your comments / advice in response to the question I posted on this thread last week. Especially thanks heaps zazex for taking a little time to expand a bit on what you think of a number of good options. To be honest, I'll probably have to wait 2 or 3 months before I can actually order something..(my appetite for researching headphones is kind-of disproportionate to my spare disposable...
Can anyone make a comparison between the HP50 and any of these 3 headphones, just in terms of sound quality...        Shure SRH940, Audio Technica ATH-ESW9 or the AKG K550? I'm trying to choose a closed-back model mainly for at-home listening, and I want to keep to a budget of $300AUS if possible. My at-home listening set-up currently is HE-500, Audio-GD SA-31SE, M2Tech Hiface and lap-top. On the whole, I'm quite content with this rig, it's just that I have a tendency to...
I have a pretty simple question for you head-fi black-belts... I would really appreciate it if you could suggest one or two websites that I can download WAV format music from. I've started using 'Bleep' but it only has quite a niche or limited range of music, so I still end up buying most of my music from iTunes. Now, I'm getting into this hobby of audiophile headphone enjoyment I feel much better about buying music in WAV than in 256kbps MP3. I very occasionally buy CDs...
Fearless1 - thanks a lot for your advice. Just one more question...in your signature you refer to the Lyr being ’magic’ with the HE-400/500, with the right tubes. How much would you say, I'd have to spend on a pair of tubes to make the HE-500 sound better on the Lyr than it does through the SA-31? (I mean more enjoyable to listen to in your opinion). I am a sucker for the Lyr’s good-looks. Zoom25 - I don't remember exactly how much the shipping cost for the emotiva was...
Hi, Just wondering whether someone who’s owned one of these amps could give me their opinion... I have the HE-500 and the M-stage and I’m looking at ordering either an Audio-GD SA-31SE or a Lyr to replace the Matrix. I had pretty much made my mind up to go for the SA-31 but then the better warranty offered by Schiit and the number of people who seem to be really happy with their Lyr makes me wonder. The main things that I am looking for are a significant improvement in...
