Stunning pair of headphones. 

 

Open design rules apply to this headphone, sound leaks as all sounds surrounding you comes in also. Thats probably the ONE unfortunate part of theese is that you can't go listen in public areas. 

 

Otherwise, an amazing sound quality, the open design has the Openess and the large sound stage. Incredible. 

 

When listening to music with punchy bass, the LCD-2s handle it so well, like.. like... a A380taking off??? IDK, its perfect. It's the only headphone I have used that handles so many music so well. As expected, treble is slightly weaker than other closed designs, but not significant to change a style of a music. 

 

Anyways, on my Setup, I have the best sound I have ever experienced in my life. 

 

WHEN i play the piano or the drums or any other instrument I play these headphones are perfect due to the open design, you can hear your own music while listening to your own instrument. SO many uses other than public usage :P

 

Cant find any competition in the same price range, or even price ranges up to the 1.5ks~

 

Unbelievable!

Finally broke down and bought these headphones, just waiting for my Schiit Lyr 2 and Bifrost Uber to come in and actually give these the power they deserve.

I have gotten an LCD2.2 non-Fazor and I'm loving what I hear. It's not my only orthodynamic can though, the other being the excellent MrSpeakers Alpha Dog. I swap around my headphones, sometimes I use the LCD2.2, but usually rotate it with my HD800, HD700 and Alpha Dog. I'm kind of stubborn in that I prefer dac/amp combos instead of stacks, so I have an iFi Micro iDSD and a Fostex HPA4. DSD playback capability is important to me as I have amassed about 1.4TB of DSD64 tracks.

Darn...didn't think the LCD-2 still sounds awesome on the iPhone 6 ONLY! Volume is almost maxed out (one notch less than maximum), but I can't hear any degradation in sound quality. In fact I think it's even better, prolly due to shorter signal path. Any of you into Head-Fi who ain't hearing an Audeze, you're missing a LOT.

Rev 1's can be had for cheaper than the newer ones.  Are they worth picking up?

The CEO of Audeze loves his 2.1's the most. If I had more money, I'd totally sell my 2F's for a pair of those and X's smily_headphones1.gif.

+1. Was very lucky to obtain a Rev. 2 (July 2012) that's in excellent condition, which made me sell my LCD-2F...smily_headphones1.gifwink.gif

They may be an even better pick now there is an open source Fazor available for them.

BMF measured them before/after and Grzegorz designed them.

It addresses some of the closed sound-stage/instrument separation issues of the first revision.

It is still the darkest planar/thickest+slowest sounding of the LCD 2 versions....but for me, that is not a complaint. I found faster and brighter HE-400 fatiguing even with EQ + physical mods. There is a point after which, that speed may cause truncated instrument decay maybe (?)

So far, I love my LCD-2.2 (pre-Fazor). I bought them used for 725$ and they're the rosewood version! Case came a little scratched but I love em. They have a similar sound to my ESW9A's (slightly warm anyway). Though, I don't understand the whole bass-extension thing. I'd love to figure out what people mean by that. The trouble I have is properly amping these things. I'm currently using the iFi Nano iDSD but I don't think it's all that great. I just have this itching feeling that it's not pushing what I want. (A slightly better soundstage and a tad more bass). But it does have a nice laidback and silky smooth sound, which I like more than my E11 which sounds cold.

Use the iFi nano iDSD's Minimum Phase filter. It drives my LCD-2 Rev. 2 quite very well.

Try running it from a high-end DAP such as Calyx M and you will be very surprised how good it can sound.
