Based on other people's descriptions of the fazors, I have them. I also have a 271 serial number.

Now when I put them down the pads are just touching. They don't touch the ears as much anymore but I do still have to keep stretching it all the time. Maybe it needs a few more days of this.

 

Wow! Your cans sound really tight!

FWIW, I just tried placing my LCD-3s on my desk, front-facing up and the back halves don't even touch. Never stretched them, they just came out of the box that way and I found it comfortable so I never messed with it.

 

I'm also 2-3 clicks from max length on the standard yoke rods.

In my pics I took a bit later after I had stretched it quite a bit, so it doesn't look too bad in those but I have been googling some pics, mine was a bit like this when I first got it.

 

 

Nowhere near like this yet..

 

 

I think if I keep up the stretching it should fix itself. Basically I stretch till its flat and hold it for about 10 seconds and its getting better and better. May have done it about 100 times by now. Why does everything have to be so complicated?

Further correspondence said they could (would) not put thicker pads on and I asked if they could put some LCD2 pads on or at least pads from the LCD X which since they have the fazors SHOULD have pads that are more resilient to compression than the ones on the LCD3? If they cannot employ one of those two options then I am not going to send them back to Audeze for the fazor install. Seems like they could address this pad thing easily enough. Just install the pads from LCD2 and be done with it.

Your pads seem a little bit compressed and deflated. From what I see on you profile picture you've been holding them on your speakers. Maybe that's the reason?

There was a reason in the first place for changing the pads to the new model when the 3s were released. The new ones were better sounding and made specifically for the 3s.

That's not actually my pair in that pic, I was trying to show how they clamp hard like that when I first got them. I just put them on the speaker to take the pic.

Ah, ok. They still look a little bit thin and deflated to me, especially the right one.

I put my non-fazor LCD-2' on, and squeezed them as tight as I could to my head. I had to push them in at least 3/4-1" before they even barely touched my ears. The 1/4" that the fazor's stick out wouldn't even be close to an issue for me.

mlxx has the 3s. Their pads are softer and the drivers are closer to the head. LCD-2 owners shouldn't have any issues whatsoever unless they're vulcans biggrin.gif

Think I might be getting some replacement pads, hopefully it will solve the problem.

 

The Conductor is doing a really good job, sounding very nice. It's Tenor driver is a lot more cooperative than the NFB15 Tenor driver that wanted to hog everything all the time, had to keep restarting applications to release it.

 

The FLAC of this sounds great...

Seems every morning I get up and have a listen, it sounds better and better.

 

:D:D:D

How many hours does your Conductor have?

Its been on non stop for 5 days now. I let it play with the head headphones during the day but its just on during the night no sound.

Then it's normal to begin noticing some changes right now. I was surprised of how better it sounded after 100 hours and then after 200 hours. biggrin.gif
