It's sounding better after some EQing. I'm glad I finally found a software EQ that's actually good.

 

The changes I made are:

A small reduction in the 10-15kHz range (mine is fairly extended in that area according to my personal FR graph).

A series of boosts in the areas of the upper treble to match the dips in my FR graph to make it more linear rather than recessed.

A small boost in the subbass (0-200Hz).

 

I'll probably do some more fiddling, but it's getting a lot better.

Justin/Headamp has the LCD2 for $795? If I wasn't so pathetically broke, I'd snag a pair of vegan LCD2s... soooo good. I miss mine.

Why Vegan MLE?

Does Vegan offer more comfort than leather?

Vegan is generally regarded as more comfy. Softer and not as sweaty.

Yes. The vegan LCD2 pads give a boost in comfort, including the vegan headband.

Thanks Matt & MLE.

Do you prefer the sound with vegan or leather?

post #5814 of 6719
Having owned two, side by side for a brief time, I can say they sound basically identical, save for slight driver variations. Both had the same exact amount of bass, though the leather felt just a very smidge warmer, while the vegan sounded a little more airy/extended. Again, I contribute this to the very small driver variation (even Audeze's graph showed a slight difference).

Unless you had both side by side, you'd hear the LCD2 as the LCD2, regardless of which pads you had on them.

I'm not sure I could pass a blind test with vegan and leather. They are very close. The more compelling reason to choose between the two is what you find more comfortable.

I got mine today and I find them dramatically more comfortable than the leather version I used to have...

This and the LCD2's are over-damped like hell, eq don't work as effectively as it does on other alike transducer headphones.

I just can't see why anyone would like the LCD2 to be even brighter. Then you have to turn up the volume louder to hear all that wonderful bass.

post #5820 of 6719

How does one amplify the LCD2 to be brighter? What constitutes a brighter sound out of the LCD2's? EQ and amplification is not the answer, mods is 50/50.
