I created a quick little suspension headband for my LCD-2's out of a new tube sock and some string. First impressions are good, very comfy!

I've never used planar magnetics before. This is a whole new level of bass impact, detail and clarity. When I'm watching movies, I feel like I'm at the cinema - which is what I've been looking for since I got into this hobby.

 

Seriously - absolutely stunning. It's been a long time since I've been so gobsmacked at a pair of headphones. A LONG time. 

 

I feel so ridiculous - I can't stop cycling between listening to them, and taking photos of them, rinse and repeat.

 

i still think the LCD-2 are the best headphones for movies :D

of course theres the X now...

I tried the X as well, I honestly preferred the 2, for my personal tastes. 

 

Dat x though, looks sleek and nice!

I liked listening to the X since it sounds closer to the 2 than it does to the 3, and i really loved the bass slam on the LCD-2 as well, the LCD-X seemed to improve on the 2. but i can see someone preferring the 2 for its darker nature

I've really grown to love the lcd2, at first I really did find it dark,
And with certain recordings, it can occasionally seem a little thick, or too lush, the x is starting to sound like something I might really like, I've just got my he 5le's sold, I may give them a try, I may have to sell the 2's, I'm going to do some more research

The overly dark and thick nature of the LCD2 is what makes me want to keep them around in a way though. They're not perfect in every situation, but it's a presentation that I feel like I would miss if I parted with them. They're just so relaxing and seductive.

yes they are warm and relaxing, and they are capable of extraordinary things, but in reading others peoples feelings towards the x

particularly that are not quite as warm, or dark.

i've tended to like a lighter, brighter presentation most of my headphones have been grado's thus far, and i've just started venturing out of the

grado family

What's the reason people recommend against OTL amps for the LCD2?

post #2275 of 9685

most OTL's are better suited for high impedance headphones rather than hard-to-drive low impedance headphones. its not a good impedance match and the LCD-2 will also thicker and slower and generally, the OTL will struggle to deliver enough power for them, more powerful OTL's are generally ok but they make the Audeze sound too warm and slow usually. 

 

of course not every OTL is the same, and some people do enjoy OTL's with LCD-2.

Thanks! Good to know.

 

Maybe I'll start barking up the non-OTL tree in that case.

i have the darkvoice336se...is it an OTL? The LCD2 sounds great on it.

OTL means "Output transformer-less".

 

From googling, it appears that the 336SE is infact, an OTL amp. It's also one I was considering for my LCD2. What are your thoughts on it?

post #2279 of 9685
The 336se drives my dt770..hd650..d7k n LCD2 with good authority...
No sense of perforated bass ...unlike when hooked to a HE6..
..it runs out of steam.tongue.gif

The is a fullbodied organic bloom from those 6as7/6sn7 combo ..
Lovely.

Temptation is rising.

 

Some people have told me that OTL amps "Roll-off highs". Do you find this to be the case with the 336SE?

 

It's a great looking unit that I have considered before.
