I gather that you're pretty happy with your LCD-2 and the WA7.

 

I'm very happy with the pairing of WA7 and LCD2. Organic, warm and inviting, very much like that pairing for Jazz and Blues. Smooth, relaxing and not fatiguing sound. Definitely not overly lush or smeared,  its very clear  and nicely detailed. Nice bass, but I feel the Soloist extends a bit further down and in the treble.

 

I currently run the Soloist with the LCD2 though, WA7 sits in my bedside rig with the Fostex TH600.

Just sold my LCD2.2s. Loved the sound, but just gave me too many headaches.

 

Wish I could get the sound in a lighter more comfortable headphone!

You mean the sound of them gave you the headaches or the comfort/weight of the headphones?

A Senn HD650 with like a slightly brighter dac/amp should balance it out towards sounding closer to an LCD-2

The weight of the headphones. I just found them way too uncomfortable.

Is there any way to get more punch/power in the bass from the LCD-2s to add a little fun factor? 

Idk, I got a conductor, maybe thats why?

at that volume you will be deaf soon anyway.....

I remember some guy here listening to he500 on x20 gain and claiming that it's not loud enough. Other time some guy said he sold his hd800 because they were open and he was waking up people next room even when doors were closed.
My setup is hd600 (300ohm headphones), odac (set to 50% volume) and o2 amp with gain x1 and I can't listen to it above 1pm where as I usually listen at 9-10am.
I really don't understand how people can listen to music at such extreme volume.

I was using medium gain and rarely going above 12 o'clock. I couldn't stand the volume you listen at :-)

You could try a SPDIF converter or buy a new amp or buy some new headphones. Personally, I found the Conductor to more than deliver in the areas you think it lacks. I don't listen to much EDM though.

Those people must be partly deaf already.

Yeah maybe I was exaggerating a little haha.

The LCD-2s are really easy to listen really loud with. Its no insane punch that give you headache or vibrating. 

I mostly listen at 12 o'clock, then around 2 o'clock when I feel like getting a in a more energetic mood. 

I dont know... Ive been to many concerts thats lasted 2-3 hours with so high volume that I had ringing in the ears for many hours after.

But I still got good score in hearing tests! :D

 

Yup, ive put my conductor for sale and trying to get a Schiit Mjolnir which was what I routed for at first.

I've found that EQing the mids down a little bit (just 1 or 2 db) really brings the bass out at lower volumes.  I moved to LCD-2 from Denons though, so I am used to a U shaped sound sig.
