The bass on the LCD is impressive.  I listen to a lot of electronic music with the LCD including my own compositions and they sound great to me but then again I only have experience with the LCD's when it comes to headphones.  I'm afraid to listen to other cans because ignorance may be bliss...    Anyway I listen yo all genres of music but lately I've been getting into these genres.  Electronic, Downtempo, Downtempo Ambient, Ambient Dub, Ambient Chill, Dub, Industrial, Techno Industrial, Abstract Hip hop, Trip Hop, Electronica/Future Jazz, Trance, New Age, House, Dance, Avante Garde, Goa, Psyhodelc Ambient.

Anyway I can't tell the distinctions between a lot of these genres but it's the genre listings that show up in the iTunes library when I load and play them so I'm assuming they are legit.  I find that if the recoding is good and the mix is superb than it sounds good on the LCD. Spatial mixing is one of my interests besides composing so I really appreciate a good mix on the LCD's.  In fact since I got the LCD's Iv'e gone back into some of my own compositions to remix and turn off or diminish the amount of compression I was using.

does the bass make them vibrate on your head?

I don't know if the LCD's can vibrate like that, the cushions are so thick.  But the bass is deep and tonally rich and tight. Every time I hear deep bass I'm really impressed but someone else is going to have to chime in about that.

thing is that with my Ed. 8 i still prefer to keep my Voyager's Contour (bass boost hardware EQ) on for most songs... they have good bass with no EQ (much stronger than my Westone 4) but i always crave a bit more. for some songs (esp. tech trance and tech house) it's too much though, so i turn Contour off to avoid fatigue. i guess i could always use a software EQ since the Lyr would be connected to my desktop.

The LCD-2 has the best bass among any headphone I have heard. However, for death metal and EDM it lacks the impact required. Bass quality, quantity and extension is simply outstanding. The D7000 might be a more fun can to have but it's not an accurate headphone.

Great voice of Nusrat with some fabulous electro-dub beats laid down to accompany him.  Not traditional by any means but sometimes you may have also wondered how his voice would sound in another genre.  I will limit my album pics after this but I do miss the days of appreciation of good album art, though it is still strong, just not so apparent in this day of downloads for which I am very guilty of as well.  

 

Gaudi + Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

"Dub Qawwali"

so it's not a good choice for EDM? i already have an Ed.8 so i'm not gonna get the D7000.

No I just meant to say that there are other headphones that may do the job better.

any open orthodynamic ones?
post #90 of 1107

Nope. If you want that bass pounding stuff, you need to get a closed headphone. The ED8 is very good at those genres. Don't get me wrong, the LCD-2 does a great job but not the best. That should not deter you from getting these headphones.
