Cut the top edge off, fill it up with sand to add a bit of weight. Works great with my HD 25's.

Alternately, one can buy the Pelican 1400 from B&H for about $60.

My LCD 2 arrived today at my house. I have a few more hours at work and then I decided to go for a 50 mile or so bike ride with my crew because it has rained in NY for like 5 straight days. Then, finally, I can test these suckers out. BTW shipping from audeze was crazy fast i just ordered a few days ago, i guess the $22 was worth it.

No doubt Vince. I bought Pro 900's off you what less than 2 months ago and now I'm rocking LCD 2's lol. Funny how this head fi game can grab a hold of you. Anyway, man right out of the box, no burn in two things very noticeable: incredible bass punch and quality, and a mids machine. I'm not going to get all technical I'm too new to this hobby and just isn't my style. I am only listening to trance, DnB and that kinda stuff for the time being right now, I will try everything else tonight and mainly on the weekend.

 

I will say this though, anyone who listens to anything EDM or that nature and want to step your game up, these are the headphones you pick, no question. I said that with the D7000's not too long ago, and now I'm saying with the LCD 2's. Out of the box just really taken away, pairs very well with the Yulong D100 and Schiit Lyr. Just really blown away at the moment. It takes a lot for something to really impress me, and this takes the cake by far in my head fi career to this point. Just a very happy camper right now.

Nice. I had the same experience going from the Denons to the LCD.

You will like the paring even more once you get into tube rolling the Lyr and get those JJ's out of there. They sound good for Trance,techno etc but thats it

Haha that might be a bit longer than I kept them. They're a fine headphone and I thought they were great at first, the 900 has a good wow factor but nowhere near the lasting quality or versatility of the LCD-2. I would imagine that the D7K is somewhere in between, I would like to try them sometime.

Put it this way, a week after i got my D7K the Pro's were gone. Too much mid bass, very authentic sounding, and the highs were piercing. The D7K is kind of like the LCD 2, but kind of not either lol. The LCD 2 beats the piss out of the denons in midrange IMO. I don't want to say much more since this is only about 2 hours of listening.

LCD2's take some brain burn in. Most HP manufacturers seems to be going after bassheads or treble heads. Well, I'm both, but the more I listen to them the less I go to my other phones. These guys have really done something special. I actually find them incredibly comfortable, and "listener fatigue" just never happens.

I certainly second that. What surprises me is how many there are.

post #435 of 9755

I think it has a great amount of sub bass, more than the D7000 which is known for sub bass and the LCD 2's sub bass offer super clarity compared to the denons. I think the LCD 2 offers the perfect amount of bass without it becoming an unbalanced sound. I think the amp plays a huge part in how well they sound. I'm sure they sound better off the WA6 SE than my Lyr. I just can see how important the quality of amping is from trying it on my Fiio E9 compared to the Lyr, big difference.
