I would appreciate your comments on a query I had!

I find the LCD2f's I have to be a bit 'harsh' or 'sibilant'? Sorry the terminology is new to me.

Sounds such as glass breaking, cymbals, gunshots are really sharp and hurt after a while.

It's strange as I have to raise the volume to hear vocals and such in movies for example but whenever something similar to glass breaking occurs, it seems a lot sharper and louder than normal.

E.g I turn the volume down a lot for action scenes and up again everywhere else. Same for certain tracks for music. Violin for example and cymbals, triangle even, seems a lot more pronounced and louder than everything else.

Would that be due to the 10k spike that was mentioned here? :5

Ahh I run these from my laptop > Cayin C5.

Ps4 > Dss > c5

Don't know if that's relevant though.

Sorry for the Great Wall of text.

Would appreciate some opinions, much obliged.

Mine was the same, before burn-in.

Use of Minimum Phase digital filter plus XBass turned on gets the LCD-2F's bass on par with the LCD-2 Rev. 2. Use of Minimum Phase digital filter plus 3D turned on gets the LCD-2 Rev. 2's imaging and midrange-treble resolution on par with the LCD-2F. Enjoy. smily_headphones1.gif


What happens if you combine earlier LCD-2 Rev. 2 with XBASS then ?

Really impactful/tactile bass or muddiness ?

I looked at the iFi portable amps before but the XBASS feature was mainly to add more to modded Fostex T50RP's...

No, not muddy at all. Just more than enough bass for me with XBass on. The XBass just affects 50hz and below. Doesn't bleed to upper bass at all. There's a graph on the iFi micro iDSD thread if you want exact hz range affected.

For me the LCD-2 Rev. 2 doesn't need the XBass. It has enough in the deep bass.
