Just stretch the headband,you can make it as loose as you like.I really don't understand how people can't understand this,it's just that easy.rolleyes.gif

Great, thanks for the condescension, and in fact but you are wrong. I have the LCD-2 and you cannot make it "as loose as you like"--it remains far too tight no matter how much or long it is stretched, and moreover, even if you can loosen it partially temporarily, it gets tight again very quickly. That is one tough headband. 

 

So I will ask my question again: does Audeze supply a looser headband as an option on the LCD-3?

Don't believe they do, wonder if you could use some of that stuff they use for baseball leather to soften the band up a little bit? Probably not, but just an idea.

People have loosened them before. Maybe you're doing it wrong.

Oh, it can be loosened, but not "as much as you like" as implied by the person who condescended to me. And in my case, it cannot be loosened enough to prevent painful pressure against my TMJ joint. 

 

I have both bent them as far backwards as I can, and kept them wide open permanently when not on my head by stretching them over books. And believe me, after two years of stretching over books, they still tighten up again quickly. 

 

I like the sound, though, so I put up with it.

Are you already at the last notch on the yoke rod? They do sell longer yoke rods, so I'm wondering if extending them out another notch would help. 

post #8993 of 11318

I guess I could try a longer yoke rod. I think I'm near the last notch if not at it.

 

People have different sized heads, so obviously someone with a small head is going to think the LCD-2 is a looser headphone and someone with a large head will think it's tighter. I guess I have a large head.

I am on my 3rd set of Audeze headphones,have a very large head,NEVER had a problem stretching all of them out.A matter of fact I stretched one set too much and had to bend them in a little.Not sure what the issue is for u,but it is EASY!!!

If you're that bent out of shape* about it, you could just look at their website or ask them directly. Their support team was very responsive the one time I had to ask them for something.

 

* - pun intended.

I think u are just being too gentle on it,you have to remove the cable due to the face it will prevent you from bending it enough.Just bend it,it will come back a little,repeat the process 2-3 times until it gets to the point that makes you happy.smily_headphones1.gif

You're 100% right. The headband is spring steel. Got to bend it a little more for it to spring back to what a person needs to fit their head.

I think the issue is that my TMJ joint is more tender than most people's so your idea of "just fine" is my idea of "painful." 

 

Also, I'm not a materials scientist but I'm pretty sure all materials like spring steel have some memory, so it's not surprising it gets tighter again after a while.

Oh, is there still an LCD-2 appreciation thread somewhere or is most of the focus now on the -3 and -X? I couldn't immediately find an LCD-2 appreciation thread via search but I can't quite make sense of the forum search algorithm.
