I used to use toilet paper on the drivers of my 650's instead of the all the foam they use. I also use it to wipe my R..s1's when they get too sweaty biggrin.gif

I just got my Toxic cable from Frank today.

 

If anybody is wondering if it's worth upgrading from the stock cable, it's definitely worth it.

From what I have heard so far, the music is more clear and has a more precise feel to it. I have swapped back and forth between them and there is a very clear difference between the two.

DamageInc77 and LugBug1, for those of us wondering what the differences are with the new cable, such as myself, could you elaborate a little for us.

The sound is a lot more clear and crisp. Everything sounds more precise. The background in the music also feels a lot more black.

It's also pretty and shiny! wink_face.gif

I got the same result when I used the Silver Poison on my HE6's.

I'd say that the sound is fuller with a sharper image. I have a very early toxic venom and is similar to the silver poison now. I do think the LCD2's benefit from a little silver over the stock. Having said that I don't think the stock is bad, but a good upgrade cable will give you an improvement imo.

nice.  ordered one 2-3 weeks back from frank and he said hes backlogged 4-5 weeks right now.  Can't wait till it gets here, should be another couple weeks.

I don't know how you all do it. This headphone gives me "Inner-head Audio Claustrophobia" aka there's absolutely zero width to the soundstage and hardly any depth either. After several songs, I start to develop a pain in my jaw. This pain makes for an uncomfortable experience and I would rather listen to my HiFi's.smily_headphones1.gif

I have no problem wearing them for 3 hours at a time. I don't get all the fuss about them being extremely uncomfortable. They may not be as good comfort wise as the Denons or Sennheiser HD650, but they aren't that bad.

In that case, I would like to purchase your head.

When I compared the soundstage of the LCD2 to that of the HD800 with the same rig and recordings, I found that the LCD2 actually had a wider soundstage, but the HD800 has much more depth to it so more of a 3D presentation. For myself the LCD2 was pretty faithful to the soundstage offered by the recording, but does not enhance it like the HD800 does.

 

edit: I've never heard an LCD2 rev.2 though, so perhaps there's a difference.

But I will say this, for live recordings, the LCD2v2 is simply fantastic.  Nothing but praises in this department from me.  I've got the Metallica - Live at Grimey's LP playing and I really feel like I'm THERE,  watching the concert, inside of a small pub-style venue, filled to the brim with cigarette smoke as these guys put on a show in front of a 60-100 person crowd.  Truly a sight to experience. The HE-500's can't touch them on this Live LP.

 

I've never been a big fan of Live recordings as they never sounded 'right' to my ears, and sounded like a poorly recorded studio album. The LCD2 "cramped" / "intimate" soundstage is a perfect fit.  Does anyone know if the LCD2v1's or the LCD3's retain the same intimate sound? o2smile.gif

 

ps. For better comfort, I did push the pads to the back of my head, so that the front of the pads almost touch the front of my ears -- and sit further behind my jaw line, while the curved pad overhangs behind my ears.
