No. I wasn't disagreeing with other user's experiences per say. I only wanted to point out that some of us are very satisfied with the leather headband, and I don't think that new prospective owners should be afraid of purchasing an LCD 2 because of the band. I personally wouldn't opt for the foam band if it were available, as I like the comfort and aesthetics of the leather band, but that's me.

 

Who knows, perhaps I just have an odd shaped head.:D

I head they are using the same foam, but different leather. Leather on the LCD3 is higher quality. 

I assume that the shape of the pads affect sound signature more than then the leather quality. Therefore, whatever pads you are going to use, will sound identical.

Just wondering if anyone thinks the current LCD-2 is a bit brighter than the LCD-2 Rev 2?

 

Sorry if it's been covered, don't have the time to read through the whole thread.

Isn't the current one = the Rev. 2? or was there another revision?

post #2693 of 9685
I read that somewhere, don't know much more. I's not going to be night and day.

A lcd 2.2 and new ones have the same sound signature

I just was at the end of the ordering process on Audeze.com. Do you really have to add the Travel Case or the Showcase as an extra product and add another 75 dollars? Are they for real?

 

UPDATE: Contacted Audeze. I was wrong. The LCD-2 is automatically shipped with the Travel Case. And it is in the description...Oh my.

 

UPDATE 2: Ordered :)

There have been reports of that, yeah, I even remember a member not too long ago (don't remember the name, sorry) who had experience with an LCD-2 rev 2 for awhile, then bought a new one and was disappointed that it was brighter (to the degree that he wanted to return it) and a couple other members noticed similar changes. If you look at some of the newer graphs members are posting, they seem to dip less in the upper midrange and curve up faster in the treble range. Some are flat-ish after this, others spike and roll off after. This was a bit after Audeze changed their pads to the LCD-3 memory foam, I think.

 

Here is my graph as an example.

This might explain why I was so taken aback by the LCD2s that I auditioned. I'd heard so much about how they're bottom-heavy planars and whatnot, but the pair I tried were crazy bright and I just wasn't a fan at all.

@Taowolf51: You are using a rev 2, right?

 

I ordered my LCD-2s yesterday and I will post my graph as soon as they arrive in Germany.

post #2699 of 9685

Hmmm interesting... I'll have to take a peek @ my recently acquired pair's freq graph.

My pair is only a couple months old, newest version.
