I guess you'll get the same issue depending how too big the HE 400 was


I'd say I needed an extra half inch of padding to get the drivers centred to my ears. Now the lcd2 should also have the padding on their headband that is missing on the he400...

I realize this is a very subjective question and may be hard to answer in terms of degree, but I appreciate any input anyone has. Thanks. 

 

I bought a pair of used 2.2's a few months ago and recently ordered new pads and a new headband directly from Audeze. Definitely improved the comfort, especially the pads. The new pads are slightly thicker than the older ones and much softer. Worthy upgrade imo...

You won't get half an inch I'm afraid,
I tried to measure both and the audeze is bigger in size at minimum setting but when I put them on the lcd 2 seems smaller rolleyes.gif

Thank you for the feedback, at the moment I've managed to get almost the right amount of padding on my he 400 using one of these:

The center image is indeed smaller on the audeze but not by far
I remember how small I could get my HD 650 at minimum size setting and we are far from that

thank you for your links, still one question is unanswered: overall would you define the lcd2 more comfortable than the he 400? Again, thank you everybody!

Heavier, but more comfortable for sure. Your neck may or may not feel the 2's after a few hours.

The LCD-2 is the heaviest set of cans I've owned. But I can wear them for hours (which I do daily) because they are very comfortable.

I don't feel the weight at all, very comfortable for hours
But some people here complain about the headbands hurting so ...
post #6492 of 7128

I find the LCD-2 to be quite comfortable. The only time weight has become an issue is when I have worn them for hours with my head lowered towards the monitor, rather than perfectly upright (and I'd probably get used to that position over time - and have great deltoid muscles too)!

The weight doesn't bother me but those thick earpads sure do now that it is getting hot, it is like putting my ears in a steam bath.

I'm kinda positive now in buying them (I hate you all :D) , but facing the summer I will probably ask for the microsuede earpads then, they should be cooler, isn't it?

Never had an issue with them too, nor clamping nor weight, tho, the D7000s are like a bird in my head xD. I can wear the LCDs for hours with no bother.
