post #3346 of 9911

i just bought the audeze lcd2 rev 2 version and I was wondering is there a mod or maybe using another cable or adding a layer to the inside cups like in mad dogs there are mods to increase bass and lower treble 

 

what is a good alternative cable better than stock that might increase bass impact if there is any below 100 USD

... meh I'm not to sure... all the cable I've ever gotten in terms of upgrade have at best sounded better in terms of less something, I've never had a cable add anything, most of my OCC copper cables add soundstage and remove decay... that's about it

Funny because since I've become used to my LCD-XC I find my LCD-2 rev2 to sound muffled and very bass heavy.

This a complete 180° spin from when I first received the XC which I initially felt were too high-mid to treble centric. I stuck with the XC because I love the faster, more realistic sound I hear from them. Once I got used to the XC I can't go back. I still listen to the LCD-2 in my home office when working, but they've been replaced as my favourite.

Maybe try some material in the cups over the grill and see what it does to the sound. Much easier and cheaper to do this kind of experimenting than going with an expensive cable. If you have money to spend then the Moon Audio Black Dragon v2 is supposed to help darken the sound a bit, but that'll run you around 400 USD. Here is the link

What headphones are you coming from? I'd suggest listening to the LCD-2's exclusively for a while and then go back to your other cans. You may find you enjoy the LCD-2's after all.

Do you think a silver/copper hybrid cable (in same cable line) would address the mids/treble "muffle" without causing etchy/sparkly upper region ? I had bookmarked a new Litz DIY cable for that idea.

You mean the Silver Dragon V3? That's what they're advertised for so I imagine it would help with the "muffle", and I can't imagine the LCD-2 ever sounding too edgy/sparkly. I haven't heard them so I wouldn't know for sure but there are many people who swear by them. I haven't heard the Black Dragon V2 either but had my finger on the 'buy' button more than once for my XC.

I'm dying to try out either cable but not sure how much of a difference I will hear vs the cost. By the way, I want to be clear that I only find my LCD-2 muffled compared to my XC. Before the XC I was more than satisfied with the LCD-2.

I bought my audeze used and by no means I have anything but to say I am so happy woth the audeze lcd 2 rev2, and the sound is simply amazing for me.

 

But since I bought mine used, I thought of replacing the headband to the leather one, and buy an extra cable as I like to keep an extra one just in case something happens to the stock cable and since I am buying I thought maybe different cables will give different sound signatures than the stock, so if there is such a cable under 150 USD I might buy it if it adds more bass impact and give more warm sound. Although I highly suspect that cables can have such effect on sound signature.

 

So if my budget is 150 USD shall I look for after market cables or stock buy the 80 usd stock cable?

Ah, sorry my friend, I misread your earlier post. blink.gif I'm happy with the stock cable (on both my Audeze's) for now but curious about other cables as well. I know most aftermarket cables aren't cheap.

any help from members that can help in chosing an after market cable that may add more  bass impact under 150 USD

 

by all means I love the bass as is but the more the merrier

Are you saying your rev2 doesn't have the leather headband? I asked Audeze about this and the Rev2 only ever came with a leather headband. If you have a foam headband then it's a Rev1. Unless the previous owner replaced it.

Unfortunately, finances require that I sell my new LCD-2's. If anyone is looking for an LCD-2 but does not want fazor, these could be the ticket!

I've burned my LCD2's in with about 200+ hours of counter strike: global offensive. The difference is noticeable. The burn in has improved them allot.
