I know there are many LCD-2 verses...threads...
But I would like to hear some comparative comments and opinions on those who have or had both and how they feel about Rock on these two headphones (especially for electric guitars). I know the Grado RS1 are extremely colored in the upper mids/lower treble and the LCD-2 extremely flat. Nevertheless, I think it will be fun to compare. Both excel at mids and both are extremely musical. I know there are die hard Grado fans and Audeze fans.
Those who have or had both (r.1 & r.2) versions of the LCD-2 are more than welcomed to compare both to the Grado RS1(i).
I for one have personally been a die hard Grado fan and loved the RS1 and felt I would never give them up. But my ears having adjusted to the LCD-2, the Grado's sounded way too thin and bright. I don't know what happened but I could not go back. I was ruined for good. I get the cravings for the Grados sound now and than but...I wonder if I can ever go back.
My Grado RS1 were amped by: MAD EAR HD & Grado RA-1
My LCD-2 amped by Lyr
