Audeze LCD-2 Orthos - Page 1226  

post #18376 of 18459

The shipping from Audeze for me would have been almost $60.  I went through TTJV and saved 40-50 on it.  I got them about a week after shipping.

I'm lucky enough to have an authorized dealer 30 mins from me. I bought their last pair. They have been waiting for a new shipment for awhile now.

I bought a Rev. 2 during that sale as well, he did end up having to get more stock in though, so with that wait and customs holding on to them for over a week I just got my pair yesterday. Drew's shipping charges into Canada are far more reasonable than any of the other places they're available from, it may take a bit a longer than but for myself I wasn't in a big rush to get them (although I was starting to get a bit antsy the past couple of days. :P)

I purchased my Rev 2 from Headroom a few days ago. It was their last one and it shipped over night free. It sounds great with my Liquid Fire amp.

I've lurked long enough and would like to come out of my cave and say a big thank you to all ya folks for contributing to my decision to buy a pair of LCD-2s. I went to the shop today to compare them against the Denon D7ks but the LCD2 just outshone them in every department. After auditioning the LCDs, I found the Denons to be sibilant and rather artificial sounding.

I auditioned them with a Classic-> Solo -> Mini3 which is my daily rig. That's all I have now but I am looking forward to picking up a good portable amp. Maybe a SR-71B? What do you guys think?

Am listening to Massive Attack - Mezzanine on them now and am really impressed at how tight and extended the bass can get if the recording calls for it. And such details!

The guitar work by Mark Knopfler on Fade to Black is truly mesmerizing on these babies.

Thanks again all!.

All of us agreed and all thought we were hearing the same things, for the most part.

My immediate reaction to the lcd was the stage, it grabbed my attention mostly. The bass obviously didn't compare (speaking about volume) to my thunders but it was very clean and pleasing to listen to. I thought the lcd played well with all the amps we had at the meet, but the additional dynamic that the lyr added was really nice. I just felt like the lcd did nothing really wrong. contrary to the prior statement, I sort of felt that there was nothing about the lcd that time and time again wowed me about its presentation. it was just damn good all round. Comfort wise, i loved how the lcd fit, the rev 2 padding and overall feel on-head was wonderful, the clamp is just right for me and i love the feel of the distance between my ears and the driver. I'm not sure what else to add since I really didnt have that much head time with them. I'm sure we'll be meeting again soon once my bifrost gets here and we'll all listen a bit longer.

I hate to say this but whoever says the LCD2 is comfortable to wear is just cheating himself. Or maybe he hasn't tried any other headphone.

post #18387 of 18459
^ huh? sorry they were comfortable for me... maybe you have a weird head, or maybe i do. It's subjective and why say it if you hate to say it... also why say this right after my post, especially remarking about me cheating myself, and did you look to see what other headphones i have tried? haha you make me laugh, nice troll

The LCD-2s are so incredibly fickle about comfort.  For some with smaller heads, it's like weight training for the neck.  For some with larger heads it's okay but sits funny.  The D7000s are by far more comfortable than the LCD-2s, or really any other headphone I've heard, but what you gain in return is worth it.

Head shape varies just as much as ear shape. Your comment generalizing everyone is quite an insult here.
post #18390 of 18459

No offence and sorry for generalizing - it is ok to feel comfortable wearing the LCD2.
