Rig: PC -> CENtrance Dacmini (via usb) -> audeze LCD2
Ive been hearing alot of jazz and classical music with the LCD2 and been enjoying it so much. But once i started listening to rock music, electronic music and soundtracks, im starting to feel disappointed by the lack of bass in the sound. Especially the sound of bass guitar.
This is especially with rock music (radiohead, porcupine tree, RHCP) where the bass guitar is almost totally overpowered by the electric guitar. Is this the case with LCD2s? Or is mine faulty? Or is there something wrong with my rig...Or is all hi-fi open headphone like this?
For my portable, i used a B&W p5 and ue trifi10 unamped, and i feel the punch of the bass guitar much more than the lcd2.
For classical and jazz and lounge, the lcds blows away the p5 and trifi10
but for rock music and electronic music.....im quite disappointed with the lcd2..im thinking its much more pleasant to listen to rock music on my unamped p5 and trifi10, which cost around 20% of my desktop headphone rig...
Sorry for the rant
