The LCDs were the only headphones that caused me to sweat profusely around the ear. I didn't know that I was able to sweat to that degree around the ear until I used the LCD. Niagara Falls from the ears during summer time..

Should get some vegan pads for it. I had both a leather LCD2 and vegan LCD2, and they sounded 99% the same. The vegan LCD2 was a hint more dry and cleaner sounding, while the leather was just a hint fuller and warmer. Unless you had both side by side, you wouldn't tell. This may also have been a slight frequency curve difference and not because of the pads.

In any case, the vegan was a bit more comfy, and not prone to inducing sweat like the leather was.

My LCD2 with the vegan pads did not make me sweat much at all in our summer and we had a stretch of some 10 days in a row over 30 Celsius (85 F to the US of A) among other hot days that went over 40C. I don't have an aircon in my Unit/Flat but use a very big fan in the "audio room" of our unit. My girlfriend didn't have that much trouble either.

 

Maybe we just don't sweat much :p

Vegan LCD2 + LCD2.1 foam headband = best comfort on an LCD2.

I still can't believe I sold it. frown.gif

That is normal.... at least for the LCD2. It's a lot like a well sealed, closed back headphone in that regard.

 

'Cabin pressure' and feeling like 'closed back headphone' are good descriptions.

Good to know it's not only me;-)

 

I have no problem with sweating so I don't know if vegan pads would help in my case, do these pads help reduce the air pressure, too?

Nope... there is a definite adjustment period.

The feeling is lessened with vegan pads, but it's still pretty much there.

My adjustment period lasts already a few months;)

I suppose that's the nature of these headphones - to be accepted or not.

Frequent breaks from listening help.

To be for, I was never fully happy with the LCD2's comfort, and I would've eventually sold them for something more comfortable.

+1, exactly how I had my LCD2rev2. Those foam headbands literally provided me that extra 30-40mins of head-time.

Listening fatigue. Vegan pads should not do it as the seal is not as tight as the leather pads.

I am considering selling them, too...although I really like the full bodied sound they provide. What I don't like about LCD-2 is this 'pressure cabin' and the lack of air/spaciousness. I don't know what a good alternative headphone would be.

You really wont know until you actually try em. For some, there appears to be 0 discomfort, I do not know if they speak the truth or not but there have been more than a few that report 0 discomfort.

I agree with this 100%, could be the same reason bass response was better with leather over vegan pads.

Speaking of the LCD2's I'm not sure where mine went, think it's in pieces still got to find the puzzles and piece it together again. lol

As far as my vegan vs leather LCD2s, the bass on the vegan actually hit harder ever so slightly. It was just slightly dry.... like so minute, it's not even worth mentioning.

I think it's probably because when you buy a vegan LCD2, it's tuned to LCD2 spec, while if you buy a leather LCD2 and get vegan pads for it, the drivers aren't tuned to compensate for the differences in SQ the pads bring.

There was no real difference in bass between the two.
