The Audeze LCD-2 Ortho thread (New) - Page 270

My LCD-2 sits pretty flat, the LCD-3 tilted back to the stitching.

You´re not alone. Mentioned numerous times by several users. It´s partly dependent on the size of your head and positioning of your ears. I.e. there is no magic fix - except changing head shape - or tilt the headphone more forward.

hmmm, it's like if there was a padding bubble right in the top instead of the crevice it would be fine.  I tried to slightly bend the headband so it would distribute the weight move evenly across my head but it didn't seem to cooperate too well.  Maybe my last resort is finding some kind of padding in can add to it.

Perhaps you can contact Audeze and see if they have any of the older foam headbands left, or maybe put up a trade ad for the old/new headband swap. I'm quite sensitive to headband pressure myself (which is why I could never live with M50, SRH840, etc, and cut the bumps off the K701) but I never had such problems with my old LCD-2 rev 1's.

My suggestion is to send sankar an email and ask him how you can make it work. Sankar is very helpful and more than likely will have a solution for you instead of modding or altering you headband he may have the right and easy fix for you,

The stock cable on the LCD 2.2 is excellent. Unlike the he500 this one does not require replacement IMO hiwever I will be reviewing the Cable and the higher end Reveire which is a 640.00 list cable to see how high the LCD 2.2 can really go. The cable were sent to me yesterday so after couple weeks to burn them in and some critical listening I will post the reviews on the Freedom cable a 219.00 offering and the mighty flagship. Looking foward to listening to Ted Paisley excellent casbles as I enjoyed the Freedom with the hE500.

FYI the Reverie is a Q with a lower strand count and stiffer jacket... not something I'd pay twice the price for ;)

Guys, I think I just won at audio..

 

Just pure sonic bliss. It's 6:41AM and I just stayed up and listened to Yngwie Malmsteen all night with this.. 

 

Needless to say after weeks of asking which was the best to buy, even a tip from Currawong himself just to grab the Gungnir and go for it, I am more than happy with my purchase.

For the HE-500, you're talking about the Canare one ? Because mine is a silver cable which is pretty fine actually.

Not sure what people have against the stock HE500 cable...It kicks the crap out of the LCD 2's stock cable, IMO.

IMO the stock HE-500 cable is a pile of crap.  Along with the connectors..

post #4047 of 6310

Really old HE500 cable is awesome though (pink copper braids), which are what I'm using ATM. Flexible, durable, light, and solid connector areas.

post #4048 of 6310

Cable is ok, but those connectors...Fang's a frackin' non smart decision maker idiot for going the SMC route.

Are there any other notable headphones that use these SMC connectors?

I can't recall any notables.
