Therefore, I am really hurt to be said as an "immature troll" given my love to the LCD2 as stated above.

 


I have to agree with googleli.  That is a bit harsh.

^Ditto, I didnt mean to attack you googleli, but you seemed to single me out for mentioning that i thought the lcd2 was comfortable after a half hour of listening at a meet where the atmosphere is less than ideal... Sure it may not be "Uber" comfy but it was comfortable for me. No i have not heard or put on such high end cans such as the sr-009 or what have you, but for me the lcd 2 and denon d7k were the most expensive cans i have heard and also very comfortable, i was making a statement based on that and for me the lcd was comfy on par with my thunderpants and less comfy than the beyer dt series, as well as the d7k's which were like a cloud for comfort :) 

 

Best,

mmayer167, no offence either, it was just that the words "comfortable" and "LCD2" don't click, if you check back the whole thread I think most have been mentioning the weight and how to loosen the clamp, but if you think it is comfortable then fine, and I will take back my words that you are cheating yourself.

 

On a separate note, I have also ordered Thunderpants in the group buy. How do you find the bass of the Thunderpant comapred with the LCD2? Is it deeper and better than the LCD2? The only complaint I have about the Rev 1 is that the sub-bass is not deep enough and does not have the impact I want, although everyone points me once again to the flat response graph whenever I say this.

post #18424 of 18459

Could be because it is flat and other phones with better bass response is actually bloated or purposely over tuned to achieve such effect.

post #18425 of 18459

Like I said human's hearing diminishes as it goes lower so I don't think boosting the sub-bass level is "bloated" - rather it is a sensible thing to do as long as it is not overdone. I also read impressions that the Rev 2 actually has deeper and tighter bass than the Rev 1 - another example that looking at a curve doesn't really reflect what we hear. If you have listened to a JL Audio or SVS subwoofer you will know what I mean. You don't really "hear" the really low frequencies, but you kind of notice if that something is missing once the inaudible sub-bass is gone.

The bass on the thunderpants has the most impact of any headphone I have ever heard, but the quality of the LCD-2's bass is superior from what I heard of mmayer167's pair.

you realize that your statement is a little exaggerated

post #18428 of 18459

At the price of US$20,000 for the Esoteric K-01 and over US$4,000 including the tubes for the Leben, I think this is an understatement. As I said, let's not get into the discussion of source and amps here, but feel free to browse Skylab's list of tube amps and ask him which amp does he think is the best amp for LCD2. And what's more I heard it on the Esoteric K-01 and Accuphase C3800 flagship preamp (the preamp itself also worth more than US$20,000) combo - the preamp has a top notch directly coupled headphone out. You have to hear stuff like that before making any comment with your experience in stuff like a DIY B22 or a ****t Lyr. And yes, with my gear, I have heard the better LCD2 than most of the peeps here have.

Interesting comments.  The LCD2 hasn't really impressed me w/ any super scaling ability compared to a few other phones out there.

post #18430 of 18459

Anaxilus - yes, you have a point there - but it still does scale. Listening to the LCD2 no my portable rig in office, for example, is still a considerable step down from my home rig when I first brought it to office. However with time I grow used to it and found that the sound is actually quite attractive in its own way using the portable stuff - and that's the beauty of the LCD2.

googleli you have proven that you can afford, purchase and collect gear but I think you still have to prove that you can hear the gear you own.  I'm not sure if you have proven that.  Is there a detailed impression or review that you have posted?  Any in depth sonic articulation we may peruse?    Something exacting, developed and enlightening?    Financial positioning does not necessarily equate sonic qualification or validation.   I believe this is the crux of the biscuit here in these posts.  We need to see the "apostrophe".  Until then people are going to treat you like a boastful collector.

I posted my impressions way before you bought the LCD-2, WarriorAnt.

It is not done by money, but I am pretty sure that my Leben is better than your **** Lyr or whatever.

post #18435 of 18459

Well, time to wrap it up folks. Apparently very few are qualified to discuss the LCD-2. Back to the quagmire plebs!
