The LCD-2s are very intimate headphones.  There's an odd lack of depth to them, but the soundstage lends well to rock or metal.  The Q701s, for example, have a more expansive soundstage than the LCD-2s but they're not as intimate or engaging because of it.

I think they're pretty comfortable too. They seem to be good for people with big heads. Only the HD800 was more comfortable for me.

I only find them a bit uncomfortable when I'm lying down, they press on my face more then. Sitting up they are really quite comfortable.

That's too bad. To me the soundstage is quite wide and shallow which sounds very natural and keeps everything cohesive. The phones with depth seem to artificially pull the sound apart too much.

At this price-level, if I owned either pair, LCD2 or HE-500's, I would be VERY HAPPY with either headphone. They are both amazing in all aspects of music reproduction and present the music in their own unique way.

Chocolate or Vanilla, equally great flavours, no need to argue which is better as its all relative, pick yours and enjoy. LCD2's are the Vanilla flavour to my taste buds.

 

Personally, I'd like to own both, hahha. They compliment each other oh so well.

 

ps. I can't stop listening to live music. I've moved onto the G'N'R - Live Era '87-'93 LP.

Does anyone know whether the vegan pads are more or less comfortable than the lambskin? I ask because my gf would rather I go vegan, and I want to know how it affects the 'phone.

I've fitted my LCD-2.1s with vegan pads about 10 months ago. I find them far more comfortable than leather, but that's a personal preference. As opposed to leathers, they will pick up lint and hair and be a little harder to keep clean. I'm sure others prefer leathers of various types. I'm also of the opinion that they are as good as the original leather pads they replaced with a slightly more open sound. Here's a link which might help you decide: http://www.head-fi.org/t/586157/audeze-lcd-2-vegan-earpads-feedback-installation-mini-review

 

I can understand why you would ask such a question if you intend to share listening time with your girl friend on Audeze headphones, but if it's just for her, then make her happy and get the phones with the vegan pads.

Hi everyone,

 

I've had a recent problem where I lose sound out of the left ear depending on where I tilt my head.  Is this a problem with the headphones or the cable?  As long as everything is positioned correctly, it sounds perfect.

 

And is this something audeze would deal with?

Oh and I'm an idiot and have treated them poorly

Try twiddling the cable without moving your head, should rule out if its the cable or not.  Are they still under warranty? I would defo contact Audeze.

I'd have to find the warranty but I'm pretty sure it's expired.  I can move my head around and get the headphones to work perfectly.  The LCD2s have just been so amazing for me that I really hope it's a minor cable issue, but we'l see

Even if you can't find the warranty I would still contact them anyway as they will have the record of the serial number (on the headband), Good luck!

I thought the warranty was extended to three years on all models now - which would mean they are covered.

 

Any signs of poor treatment - depending on what you mean by this - might not help your case though!

 

Regardless, contact Audez'e - they have a reputation for looking after customers.
