I'm thinking of getting some LCD-2s thus any feedback would really be appreciated. 

 

 

Thanking you in advance!

fiio x3 can't power the audeze, no way on earth can it do it justice stir away even thinking about pairing the audeze with x3 or even with fiio x5

Just got Fazor 2, I had owned older LCD-2 rev.2 and sold it because it was little bit too warm for me.

Now 2F sounds Just amazing. Audeze kept their signature presentation through all the fr reign and added extra sparkle on high~

 

My 2F's FR Looks like Early LCD-2 with added treble and extension

Congrats. It's a great headphone. When I first bought them, I found the imaging on my pair to be a bit "hazy" and lacking in precision, but they've improved tremendously as I've put hours on them. As they sit now, they're excellent. Although the width of the soundstage is smaller than my HD800, I don't really find the imaging/staging to be any less precise in terms of placement and layering (which is saying something). I'm a total fan of the Fazor!

The way it sounds on the LCD-2s is quite a treat, indeed. I'm in a great place with these headphones. :)

 

Edit again: I just listened to Sail by AWOLNATION. Wow. I can't quit these headphones. I don't think I should like anything as much as I like these.

 

ohhhh that song is pants-creaming good. damn thanks for that! what a performance on the LCDs :)

It will get pretty loud, and will have a very listenable volume on the FiiO X3. Better to get a proper amp for them if you want headroom and best performance. It won't sound horrible though and you will be able to tell is a high end headphone.

I can totally relate to your falling in love w the audeze sound!! It's so beautiful man.

 

They're basically my girlfriend, and I haven't gotten lucky in a loooong time because it's so easy to stay at home and listen to music instead of chase girls :) 


For instance, since having bought them 8 months ago, I'm still reading these forums with no consumer purpose, not trying to learn what equipment to buy for them. So what the f*** am I doing? ----> the reason is:

 

I have to reach out and connect with people about the amazing audeze experience, for it is really quite amazing and I have no-one else to talk to about it (should really let my friends use them more).

 

I feel so connected to the music, man.

I've got a decently large head but the weight fits perfectly on my melon. The sound is great, too, but the way they fit is an entirely different beast. I loved the way my HE-400s sounded and fit but the LCD-2 are a step beyond in every aspect.

 

I can understand how they'd be overwhelming to a typical person but I absolutely love the fit and feel. And the smell is second to none. Good God!

 

Edit: Goodness gracious. I think I have achieved headphone nirvana. I plugged them in to my laptop and they put a smile on my face. My modest Magni + Modi rig is really doing it for me. I'd really like to grab a Schiit Lyr but the Magni is really doing it for me right now.

They go great with the Lyr and I was close to getting my own Lyr, until I tried the ALO PanAm. The LCD-2's paired with the PanAm is magical.

 

I think you can still get the PanAm and Passport (battery power) for a little more than the Lyr by itself. The PanAm has a DAC in it, too, which is just icing on that sumptuous sounding cake. I'm not sure how long the ALO sale will continue, since they are out of the black color and are seem to be running out of tubes as well. If you're considering a $500 amp to go with the 2's, you may want to grab it while you can. I wholeheartedly recommend the PanAm.

 

 

I was listening to Kenny Burrell and his jazz guitar today, Midnight Blue specifically. My jaw started hurting and mouth began salivating like I was tasting the richest, sweetest flavor. I was having a physical reaction to the sound of the LCD-2.2 and PanAm.

I inquired about the dwindling stock and the Pan Am is indeed on the way out! Grab yours while they still have some. It pairs GREAT with the LCD-2!!

From ALO:

"Thank you for your e-mail.

We are phasing out the PanAm, therefore we will not be restocking the PanAm in any colors.

New development for products are always in the works, however a PanAm replacement is not in the immediate future.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Please let us know if you have any other questions and we'd gladly help.

Best regards, "


Sad day when there are no more Pan Am's for sale.

I thought that might be the case.

 

I'm so glad I got mine.
