Headphone hair is far more preferable than indented hat hair. Hat hair looks as bad as the just got out of bed look.

my hair always gets trapped in LCD-2, kinda annoying.

It has come to the point now where I am so used to the LCD 2 that they seem to disappear after a few minutes.

I even find myself searching for the clamping sensation on other phones as I've come to associate the feeling to good sound. redface.gif

 

I have the same issue too.

It sounds to me like LCD2's comfort is something you get used to after a lot of use.  I think I will give it a try soon.

Some do, some don't. I did, but the combination of clamp, headband discomfort, and weight might be a bit too much for some.

If you live in Scandinavia… KDM has a special summer price on LCD-2 Bamboo and Bamboo Vegan. Should be cheaper than importing yourself (legally). They have a discount on Violectric HPA V200 too.

Took delivery of mine this morning. They look great on the desk but ridiculous on my head. Even though I currently have nothing to plug them into (waiting on an amp) I tried them on my head for about an hour and don't seem to have any issues with comfort. Can't wait to hear them. They should compliment my T1's nicely.

Yeah most phones are like this. People who are impatient can start headband bending, but yeah the pads break in over time and the headband stretches overtime as well. I used to do a lot of headband bending when I first started this hobby, but I never do it now, because over time it loosens up too much and later I have to rebend it to increase the clamp. I bought a new HE-500 recently (my 4th) and did not bend it at all. I just waited patiently for a few months for them to break in naturally and they have. They're super comfy now.

Repair on a my cracked out of warranty LCD2's. Despite me bashing the LCD2's from time to time against other flagships it does show that I do care a bit about them to fix it then trash it in the bin.

 

Wood glued in between the crack then applied super glue over outter side. 800 grit wet/dry to the wood, gonna do 1200 grit tomorrow morning. Then clean it up and decide on stain / varnish finish as the typical Rosewood colour is quite bland so I'm adding some uniqueness to these whilst I got them dis-assembled.

DefQon what's Audeze's policy on out of warranty wood cracks? Do you have to just pay the full price for a new one or do they have some kind of trade-in discount?

 

3 year warranty on the LCD-2 right?

post #1407 of 4520

It's 3 years on wood cracks but driver failure is 1 year. Mean's you ship it to them on your expense and they fix it up if within the warranty period. Mine are out of warranty and I can't justify the costs of shipping it to them + labour charges for new wooden base so I've decided to fix them myself. Also a good excuse to sand down the base and apply a different unique stain finish to them as that Rosewood look is now so bland.

Never realized that LCD2 diaphragm is pleated perpendicular to the striping of the tracings. I wonder if that's the secret to its bass.

There is a thin membrane in the middle sandwiched between the two pcb's. If you blow into it, it moves a little bit.
