I really enjoy Mumford & sons with the LCD2. The entire Babel album sounds great. My favorite would either be Holland Road or Lover's Eyes. 

 

ETA: I tottally forgot about The Black Keys: Never gonna Give you up.

I second that, folk rock is probably one of my favorite genres on the LCDs

I just tried Purrin's TP mod on my LCD-2.rev1 and love it.  The increased upper midrange and lower treble has increased my enjoyment of them.

They retain the bass and mids which I love while boosting the upper freq.  Great mod.  Has anyone tried it on their LCD-2 rev.1. or any other mods.

 

I'm thinking adding a thin layer of cotton, much like the Fostex T50RP mods that increase the treble and air.

The LCD-3s are better for every genre...but they do come in at 2X the price and are definitely more revealing and "finicky" of upstream gear. I'd recommend the LCD-X personally...simply outstanding headphones.

I'm really battling which one I'm going to upgrade to. 

 

The LCD-X sounds like the better all arounder, but I plan to have complimentary cans to whatever I purchase, and I'm addicted to midrange. Seems like the LCD3 may be the better option.

If you like to listen to classical music from time to time, then I'd recommend the LCD-X as they are indeed a better all rounder. But say you already own the HD800s, then the LCD-3s would make for a fantastic complimentary headphone.

Never enjoyed the LCD-2 more then now. Finally got my speaker adapter so I can hook it up to my Yamaha RDS440. I gave 15$ beating the hell out some 100x more expensive dedicated headphones amplifier got. None mentioned all forgotten ;)

 

speaker amplifiers from this on thus. Never knew LCD-2 could offer this soundstage and be so alive.

+1 for speaker amps. I've had the same revelation more than once. For example, the he-4 with the Pioneer sx 1280. :eek:

Where did you get the speaker adaptor?   I'm interested in using on my pioneer ex-737 or b&k amp.

Norse audio. I did the mistake accepting an offer from a head fier. Of course got scammed. Second time that happened with cables it truly is snake oil business. But Trevor is a good guy.

The easy way is to just strip a cable and use the wires directly on the terminals.

How much are they?  

post #2157 of 10585

Hmm had some other stuff but I think it was 75$ at the time. Have to contact Trevor about it that was a while ago depend on what cable you order and what connectors.

post #2158 of 10585

Thanks.  Maybe I'll try Blue Jean Cable first.

I can't help but be a collector, So that's likely the route I'll end up going. I get quite sick of having the same sound signature for a long period of time regardless of how perfect it is. I found myself getting very tiresome of my LCD2s before I took a break and used my Grados for a couple of weeks.

 

I can't help but notice you've parted with your LCD3 for the X and XC. Does another pair of your cans hit the marks that you used your LCD3s for?

If you don't want to spend the money to buy it, you can get a Switchcraft 1230 and some 24 (or 22) guage wire and make your own cable. The Switchcraft uses screw terminals, so no soldering needed.
