I actually prefer the LCD-2/HE-500 from solid state because they're already lush to begin with.

Just got my new LCD-2's in today:

 

 

Pretty nice, though the clamp is, er, intense.

I feel your pain.

 

Actually, I really do. I demoed a pair last week and fell in love with the sound, but the clamping force made me hesitant to make the leap to purchase a pair, although I'm still veering in that direction. You likely already know about attempting to gently stretch out that headband by setting the headphones over a thick stack of books overnight. Audeze recommended I do that, and it helped somewhat, but since they were a borrowed pair, I didn't push it. You can, though.....and may want to try that for several nights. I am also thinking of ordering a pair with the velour pads as the leather ear pads on the cans I had were VERY hard. Supposedly the velour are softer. And if that doesn't work, the ear pads for the LCD3 are supposed to be pretty soft, and Audeze will sell a pair of those to the owner of either headphone. I loved their sound signature well enough that I may just give these ideas a try, but I'd be interested to hear how it goes for you.

wow what a pretty looking pair of LCD-2, the wood looks very clean and even colored.

It doesn't look quite that good in real life :)

 

Used a Nikon D5200, 35mm 1.8, and vivid color settings (really makes things like headphones pop).

The bamboo looks surprisingly nice in person. I really like the way mine looks. I have to snap some pictures using my DSLR and upload them so people can see.

Hi, new to the forum and pretty much new to spending too much $$$ on headphone gear!  I just got a pair of LCD-2 in and they are really nice sounding.  I tried several Sennheisers, but loved they way the LCD-2 sounded with my music.  I was using a portable amp/dac, but have ordered a Burson Conductor amp/dac/pre combo and this should make it even more interesting.   Richard

Nice one Richard. I have the exact same setup, and love it immensely. I don't have much experience with high end audiophile gear, so to my ears, the Burson/ LCD-2 combo is the absolute best system I've ever heard, and it just keeps growing on me. At first, I was impressed, and kept selecting tracks that I thought would rock (and they did), but it truly started blowing my mind when I just put on an album and relaxed. Listening to the music, rather than the gear.

 

The way that it presents music is just amazing. It has really enabled me to appreciate and enjoy a wider variety of musical genres, as everything sounds open and warm, yet detailed and powerfully dynamic.

 

Oh, and that bass. I thought the Denon 2K bass was good, the LCD-2 is just so deep and precise, and full of texture.

 

I hope you like the combo as much as I do.

the Conductor and LCD-2 was one of the best combos i've ever heard as well.

post #1676 of 3501

Is it me or has the new Bamboo LCD2's gone lighter in texture?

 But that being said, the headband was not such an issue. Just that clamping force around the side of the head, jaw, etc. Maybe I will try to connect with Audeze and see what kind of feedback they have gotten as to the suede vs. leather earpads with regard to comfort. And also if people have had a good experience with the LCD3 earpads. Maybe I could special order a pair of LCD2s with the 3s earpads......wink_face.gif
LCD said they will not sell a pair of LCD3 pads to a LCD2 owner which I am.

You can actually buy the LCD3 pads off the Audeze website with no problems.

Thanks. I'm in Singapore and I guess I'll just have to pay for the shipping. Cheers.

That sucks, if you're buying through the Singapore authorized distributor for Audeze products they should allow LCD2 owners to buy LCD3 pads as that purchase policy was something of the past when the LCD3's first came out. You should maybe point them in the right direction and ask them what the heck?
