I think the forward vocals in the other phones could come from the forwarded treble, looking at the LCD graphs, the highs are not that pronounced.  Not saying it's not detailed, resolution is great!  It sound a bit flatter in the imaging aspect, this could be because it's very neutral, not sure.

Yup, looking at the graphs, it takes a dip where you would hear the vocal highs.  Not sure if it was intentional, it's very flat everywhere, never seen such a graph.

Funny, I've found amps make a big difference in terms of technicalities/refinement. As long as you're happy with what you're using, that's cool.

This is your culprit.  I'm using Beta 22.  You need a jucier amp.  I've used my O2, which I think is much better than my e17.  E17 I think dips at the low end, and It's not going to provide representation of sound this thing is capable of.  You will get more resolution with the right amp.

 

O2 is bloated sounding compared to my Beta 22.

Bass about the same but lcd 2 has a lot of bottom end capabilty (quantity) with good EQ.
Midrange. Lcd2 is smoother, while the hd600 is harsh and shouty.
Treble. Lcd2 has so much treble detail and imaging i really thought they gave me an lcd3. Again smooth and not one sibilant never fatiguing. Hd600 was fatiguing, and rolled off +++.

Overall there are some tracks that i can't listen on the hd600. Those that need treble. Those that are too shouty. Those that need bass. Those that hurt my ears. Those that are boring on the hd600. Those that are mastered badly (uncompressed).

Lcd2.2F ... Have not found one track that doesnt sound good.

 

Sounds like the LCD 2 will be right up my street.

 

I should be getting my pair on Tuesday.

So if anyone in Europe wants to trade their LCD-2 for a pair of T1's, you know who to contact :beerchug: 


before you jump onto the LCD bandwagon you must be warned that the LCDs are bulky heavy fragile - some people get a headache wearing for long (i don't for some reason) and the soundstage is a i thought a lot smaller than the HD600.

 They are not fragile in the least. These are substantial headphones that are built very well, and that's evident from the minute you take them out of the case.

Yeah, they're not fragile. Very well built.
post #6281 of 7128

ok thanks. it looks heavy and held together in tiny screws. glad to know it's not going to fall apart when my kid picks it up, nevertheless i am not letting anyone/thing near it :D

post #6282 of 7128
If you have a pair, you should be able to tell how well built they are.
post #6283 of 7128

if you have kids or friends you should be able to tell how rough they are

post #6284 of 7128
lol that doesn't mean the headphones are fragile.
post #6285 of 7128

The LCD-2's would hold up to kids/friends better than most headphones. Where most headphones are plastic, Audeze's headphones are steel and have replaceable parts.
