Nearly identical bass, actually. Better mids, and less treble.

fine fine I wanted to wait till my other 2 headphones were done but that looks to be only a few days off. I put stax 02 pads on them and they went from pretty good to amazing in both sound and comfort. Your jaw will clench the first 10 hours but after that headphone heaven. highly as highly recommended can get. I'm saving the full review for a few days though.

Stax ear pads?

It's not a question of seal. They have an acoustic ring that goes all the way around the earpiece behind the earpad and it has to stay open or they sound like garbage. I'm not saying you haven't played around with them but you have def. never heard them without them being on your head or played with them around somebody else cause you would know that they leak sound almost as bad as an lcd-2. I will put a cnote on it that if we pose the question "do denon d2-7k leak out allot of sound" in any of the denon thread's we will get far more yay's than nay's. You wanna put your money where your mouth is?

You are questioning whether or not I have heard them by saying I have only played with them. What's the point of playing with them if I won't be listening to them? I'm going to say it again, they don't leak sound as bad as the LCD2's and I had a perfect seal with the entire D*K range, sure they don't completely isolate sound completely but do not leak sound as bad as the LCD2's. Either your pair of LCD2's are faulty or the newer LCD2's are more dampened and less open than the older LCD2's. I'm going to say it again they don't leak as bad as the LCD2's. I can virtually use the LCD2's as speakers.

The D7000 doesn't even leak out much, unless you play them to the point of shattering your ear drums. They do however allow external noise in quite easily.

It still functions quite well as a headphone to keep from bothering other people. The LCD2 is as open as anything I've ever heard.

Wow these LCD2.2's are starting to open up some more with a lot more hours on them. The whole rig is just starting to really come alive now. I can listen to Emancipator and just be spellbound. Also played around with JRiver settings some and that made a difference as well. Plus the Mjolnir has the muscle to really move those cans. When it's time to rock the amp and dac get down to business. Beautiful pairing the LCD 2.2's and the Schitt Mjolnir/Gungnir! Highly recommended...

Thank you, glad somebody else agrees with me as well. Apart from my Lambda's and HD800's, my LCD2's come in a good 2nd or 3rd after the HD800's with the amount of sound they leak.

Nice, glad you are enjoying them. I've read some very positive notes that the Mjolnir is almost an end game amp for the LCD2's due to its brighter nature and ability to reveal detail and impose clarity, something which sounds synergistic with the LCD2's warm, laid back or dark signature.

Thanks

EBay, audiocubes, yama, the f/s threads, electronicmods.UK.....

They are easily in stock and obtained.

Sitting here looking at charts and planning trades while listening to my beloved Audeze LCD2.2 cans and Mjolnir/Gungnir. This is pure audio heaven! Just getting better and better every day...

So I dug up an old email from mark and it turns out that the denon's do both leak and isolate depending what music you're playing and what volume. What really frustrates me though is the dof-doffer comment and it costs 800-1000 to get a headphone from mark. My tune and pads were $200 and I got the denon pads back. Also if mark is a dof-doffer than all the t50rp modders are even lower on the totem pole as they all offer look and cable packages as well and don't give up their tune the way mark does. You will also have to throw all of the amp and dac builders under the bus as well cause nobody can touch what mark does for that $200. So who's left? Just people who own unmodded headphones with no dac or amp? Not a world I wanna live in. P.S. My dof-doffer ass figured out in less than a week the best bang for your buck mod out there for the lcd's. Something none of you guys could figure out in several years.

post #4605 of 6297

Hear that o1ro1n you dof doffer...lol.

 

@jib, you obviously haven't seen some of the lawton modded D7k's in the F/S section now have you? Just a tip some were selling for $1500-1700's compared to a stock D7k that use to sell for $700, that's where my $800-1000 comment comes in. Oh and I'm sure your O2 pads offer a difference, the fact that either your brain is telling you there is a difference when there might not be any or the fact that you think that swapping pads offers a sound increase to which Audeze engineers have designed the current pads to be best suited for these headphones without modifying it's sound signature and tonality. Oh yeah for the record you're not the first to install the O2 pads on the LCD2's. There are others that have done prior to you even registering here.

 

Oh and for the record I invented the LCD2's I'm sure you would've never figured that out. wink_face.gif
