The Audeze LCD-2 Ortho thread (New) - Page 347

post #5191 of 7128

Anyway, jokes aside. So I got to hear Jester's vegan LCD's and I must say the comfort is better than the leather headband and pads. Plus the vegan pads seem to grip your head better and also feel a bit lighter. Sound wise, I'd say the treble sound a touch airier and thinner but cymbals sounded more natural in their sizzle and decay.

Mad Dogs used to be my top headphone comfort-wise. I think the LCD2-s are giving them a run for their money.

 

Once I had them on for a while last night I slowly adjusted them to how I like them, and now they no longer feel heavy. I think the soft pads/headband and the clamp force really go a long way in making them feel lighter than they are.

 

This means you can't listen to them dryvadeum; your head is too big ;)

Why not buy the foam headband, it's more comfortable than the leather/vegan.

How much are they? They don't look as good.

Do you guys think it's worth it to get LCD-3 leather earpads and swap them with the LCD-2 leather ear pads? Change in sound etc.?

 

The added comfort seems like a bonus.

You must be an owner of the LCD3 to buy the pads. Anyways sphinxc covered this topic ages ago and it both adds and removes sound from the 2's.

I remember reading that as well a long time ago. The reason I brought it up today is because currently on Audeze's site they are offering the LCD-3 earpads for direct purchase. I clicked on add cart and went in with it. There didn't seem to be any authorization/access problems. Looks like now it is possible to just buy the LCD-3 earpads.

 

Regarding sound, back then very few had tried this. I would like to hear some more and new opinions on this after all those months.

This is great news!

 

Unfortunately the brown colour doesn't suit my LCD2's.

Any LCD-2 owner here use Woo Audio WA7? Can comment? I am thinking of getting WA7.

 

Cheers

I'm starting to think these headphones were made for Opeth. 

 

Ghost Reveries sounds superb.

I use a WA7 with my LCD-2 and love it.  It seems like it could use a little more power than the WA7 can put out but it's plenty to reach loud volumes as it is.  I've only tried it with the stock tubes and with the 2.2.

Frank I had the combination for a few weeks and said it was a winner!

The 2's are great for metal (black, progressive, death). Sounds apocalyptic and devastating.
