Just what I was pondering to get or not. Looks good, just awfully close to the bottom leaving only little space to manoeuvre. Seems like you must pay attention taking it off and putting it back on the stand no?

Hello fellas. New user here. Not much to add to this thread other than I got a pair of these for Christmas thanks to Audeze's Black Friday sale and I love them. I use them with a Burson Soloist SL connected to the Cyrus 24 bit DAC in my Hi-Fi. I have some AKG K702 as well and the LCD are a nice contrast, warm and musical.

Bought the Mini i pro today - thanks for the advice guys, sounds great with the LCD-2.2. 

 

My setup is complete! Hooray!

After 4 months of daily use, I have to admit that I haven't found my LCD 2's to be that comfortable. I guess my head is too small or something. My cheeks are sore after 20 minutes of use, as the pressure doesn't abate.

 

:-(

 

I absolutely love the sound, and I have made a decent investment in cables and don't want to get rid of them if I can make them work for me. Any thoughts as to how to obtain a better fit with less pressure on the front?

Not at all, it has plenty of space for sure.

I do know how you feel, they're not comfortable... I tried to straighten the headband to reduce clamping force without luck however, using cotton pads (between the ear pads and the drivers) close to your temples helped a lot. Try it and post the results.

Dont know =(, I can be with them 5 hours long with no issues, in fact, these are one of the most comfortable headphones I ever tried, and I tried a damn lot...

 

If the problem is that they bend a lot, just adjust them a tad bigger, and put some piece of cloth on top of your head where the lcd-2 rest.

No idea if it'll help you, but I recently (you can see a couple pages back) ordered up the extended yokes and a set of the LCD-3 pads. It did help, still not as good as an HD800, but better. My head is on the large size though...

Yo. I like to EQ the upper midrange and treble up using the iTunes software equalizer. I don't think I should slide the preamp down because the way that this is done is by removing bits from the original digital file, thus reducing the resolution sent to my outboard DAC, thus reducing the detail I potentially hear in the bass and midrange. 


I'm not hearing distortion (I think) in the treble from EQ'ing up. 

 

I have tested this by lowering the preamp down vs. leaving it at zero, and I think I prefer the sound of leaving it at zero.

 

I know what clipping sounds like in bass from EQ'ing that region up, but again, I don't think I'm hearing clipping at all. 

 

Should I not be EQ'ing the treble up? Will it damage my headphones even though I don't think I'm hearing any clipping? My amp is powerful enough for the LCD2 with headroom for sure.

I would take the global down a little...that  is a lot of treble boost (avoid digital clipping).  Generally, the only 2 bars that need tweaking on occasions for me is the 2 and 4 khz bars - slight bump a few decibels.  If I feel like a treble shelf up I find 1 db is enough and have never needed any more than 2.  But I have the original R1, which could use a little more bite sometimes at 2-4khz.

 

You can res-ample to 24 bits and you wont lose data with the global gain.  The software might already do that automatically.

 

You wont blow the LCD2s no matter how you play with the EQ.

Why would you like to damage your headphones with EQ'ing ??

Too much current or volume may blow the drivers on powerful amps with speaker taps but it never happens very often biggrin.gif
post #2413 of 9685
I asked on the forum questions about EQ'ing also and Taowolf51 gave a good free tweak to improve the lcd2.2 curve to your liking
it's called Equalizer APO, which is a system-wide windows parametric EQ

Easy to use, just need a little reading to figure out how it works

5 Hours straight? Hombre, eres mi idolo! Comfort will be my top priority for my next pair of headphones... I don't use them so often precisely for that matter.

I'll sometimes listen for pretty much 14 hours straight - apart from toilet breaks - without issues.  If it is the weight which is a concern, your neck muscles will strengthen over time - or your neck will compress down to nothing and you can perch the LCD cups on your shoulders.
