This might sound silly, but has anyone tried putting LCD XD cups on the LCD 2.2?

No, that's not how it works.

If you actually try this out, you might notice that damping the front of the driver can in fact reduce the highs resulting you hearing louder bass.

Regardless, it's not boosting the bass. It's just less treble. That's it. You're not hearing more bass, you're hearing less treble.

Yes, and what happens when you hear less treble? The bass appears louder.

Indeed it's all about the balance.

Agreed.  Less treble means you notice the bass more.  Even the HD800 cops a little flak for being bass light, when it isn't...but it's the treble in stock form that makes it seem that way.

Auditory masking doesn't necessarily work in the ways described here.

If you "mask" the treble and possibly some of the upper mids you don't get more bass. But yes it's more apparent. But the story doesn't end there. With a lower upper mid and treble we turn the volume higher because 1. we want to hear the vocals better and 2. we can tolerate a higher volume because the "painful" frequencies are quieter.

 

The end result is something with more bass because we turned the volume up. I figured this out using logic. I have no scientific basis for this :)

I tend to agree. I suspect that this is the kind of sound musicians practice to because it is the only possible signature that allows for rehearsals.

 I myself find that the stock cable on  my lcd2 v2s really holds the headphone back . I have recently bought a cable pro reverie lcd2 cable that has really dramatically improved the performance of my lcd2 v2. While it is certainly not cheap it has really elevated the performance of my lcd2 v2 . I just wished that the stock cable could have been better so I might have saved me the money that I  shelled out on the new leash .That is the nature of the high end .
