Any help asap would be appreciated and cheers to a great 2014 guys :beerchug: 

wow do you dislike female vocals on this can?  I am not sure I can help you whatsoever then as I never had that problem or any problems with vocals whatsoever. It surely don´t make Mark Knopfler sound any better though but that is not a fault of the cans ;)

 

There is an amp recommendation thread for the LCD-2. For me as mentioned earlier I would look into speaker amplifiers and speaker amplifiers only. The odds to get into LCD-2 heaven seem to be much greater for whatever reason.

 

Otherwise my Trafomatic Head One is the most rounded amplifier for the LCD-2. If that is a common genomer for tube amps I don´t know since the one and only tube amp I ever listened to :) Maybe a bit to soft possibly there is other dynamic headphones I think perform better on it then my LCD-2. It´s never bad though but nowhere nere my budget receiver which you maybe think it woul beat...

Run them off the speaker taps of an Emotiva mini-X. Better than the Lyr IMHO (after owning both)

These are simply incredible with rock music. Very emotional.

Thinking about getting these at some point. The only thing I'm worried about is the comfort.

 

Can anyone compare their clamp to a HD600, HD650, or HD700? And I assume the headband cannot be stretched?

You listen to his voice?

 

His guitar is what he speaks with.

the sensation to me/my head is like a snug encapsulation when i put on the LCD2...like right this moment.

( the 650 is like a light bicycle helmet instead...but i hav no grudge against the LCD2, i love it.)

I got to try some of these at the Seattle meet and I will say that they are incredibly comfortable when you first put them on, but it isn't very long until I felt like there was a brick sitting on my head. As I told my friend there with me, "I love those headphones but you would have to do something about some extra cushion on that headband." I will say the sound was just phenomenal coming from a Cavelli Liquid Fire Amp, it was definitely one of the top 3 or 4 phones I heard there.

As much as I agree that the headband is the bottleneck of the LCD2 in terms of comfort, you do adjust to it fairly quickly if you own them. It's more a matter of figuring out the right placement with them.

agreed, i've had mine a month or a little more now, and the comfort is fine now

also, today my balanced cable arrived from audeze, so i'm hearing the lcd with the mjo for the first time, very impressed so far

I agree, comfort issues can usually be worked out with long term ownership. You find different ways to wear it on your head or just get used to it after a while.

My LCD-2 rev.1 with Purrin's TP mod is the perfect headphone for me.  

I know the LCD-3 & LCD-X might be better but I'm choosing to stay in the "ignorant is bliss" for the sake of my wallet.  :D

It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when. :wink_face:

Hey there fellas!

 

New owner of a 2.2 pair from late august, brand new Rosewoods from shop, just been with them for 5 hours so far and these are my impressions:

 

- As many said before, liquid, yummy and smooooth sound, incredible and awesome.

- I love the mids, Ive been using the Hifiman's HE-500 for a while, and god they have good mids but these LCD-2 dont have any worse, Im loving them.

- The bass is just awesome, not a lot quantity, I was a bit scared about this, just the right amount, a bit more than neutral, but good, very textured and layered, keeps surprising me, I love it!! Good impact, incredible sub-bass.

- Treble, nice, smooth, nothing harshy or fatiging, but I dont feel it lacks in any way, in any style (rock, metal, rb, electronic, pop, classic stuff, instrumental, jazz, vocal...)

- Soundstage is fairly good, enough for me, I know there are HPs with more and wider soundstage like HD800 (tried them, too analytical for me Im sorry) or K701 (own them, lovely for classical but thats it), the soundstage for instrumental stuff like rock, pop or metal is more than enough

- Separation is superb

- Fairly comfy, no problems so far.

I will post more with a good camera! I just have my iPhone now :(

 

Also my headphones are: he-500, dt880, k701, dt770, grado sr80i, and tried for long hd650, he-400.

amp: matrix m-stage with musical fidelity v-dac II, soon, audio gd nfb-28, the matrix will be in the living room!

 

I like the Audezes with the Matrix a lot, I think they pair pretty well!
