The Audeze LCD-2 Ortho thread (New) - Page 441

post #6601 of 6615

I would like to hear more comparisons on LCD-2.2C vs LCDF.

post #6602 of 6615
Question for LCD-2F owners. I tried a number of LCD-3 and LCD-X models at the NY Audio show and one of the things that bugged me was that with the new Fazors my ear touched the drivers and the Fazor was kind of uncomfortable (but not painful) feeling. On older models I always liked that with the huge ear pads ones ears never touched the drivers. I am wondering whether since the LCD-2 has different, less squishy, pads that it not an issue with the LCD-2. Or do your ears touch the Fazor on the LCD-2 as well.

No, not at all.

Interesting. I asked the same question on the LCD-X thread and people said it did touch. Wondering if pads make a difference here. Would be interested in responses from other LCD-2F owners on this issue.

Mine don't touch my ears at all, and I have a rather large head.

I believe the LCD-2F now has the same pads as the LCD-3/LCD-X,someone correct me if I am wrong.

Same goes for me with the LCD-X and LCD-XC.

They touched my ears on both LCD-X and LCD-XC, but it wasn't very bothersome.  The cavities created by the Audeze earpads is still the most comfortable 'ear' experience I've ever had.  The complete opposite for the top of my head, though.

I'm finally upgrading my LCD-2 rev.1 to LCD-2 Fazor.  The Fazor pushed me over to upgrade.

post #6610 of 6615

Guys whats the verdict on fazor? is it still lush and smooth like before?

Very, just not as intimate due to the open soundstage. Smooth and lush all over, for sure.

Does razor cause any sibilance or is it fatiguing to listen to?

There is no change in Audeze's frequency response goals. They're meant to sound the same, consistency is the new goal.

Yeah, I can see the headband being more of an issue for people (in general) than the earpads. I typically hate fake/cheap leather ear pads...my ears overheat within minutes. But the leather on the Audeze pads is very breathable and comfortable. Every time I take out the foam divider and put them on my head for the first time of the day, I love that soft, cool feeling against my cheeks. Still not as comfortable as the T1s, but not as far of a dropoff as I would have expected before I bought them. (And even though I don't own them, the HD800s are certainly very comfortable, as well.)

That's good to hear, thanks. I'd read somewhere that the mids weren't quite as silky on the F model.
