REVIEW – Audeze LCD-3 planar magnetic headphones - Page 31  

post #451 of 533

For me, the LCD3 leaves the O2 with the 007t in the dust, both in sound quality & comfort. I may stop buying headphones for good with the LCD3 & LCD2s Rev2s I have.

Now that I have the LCD3s and love them, for me, there is still a place for the LCD2s Rev2s also, as they sound quite a bit different.

The LCD3s have more satisfying, resonant bass and better definition and are glorious on better recordings, but the LCD2 Rev2s hold back just a smidgen and are wonderful on

recordings that have glare or boom. So together they make a nice pair. I need both.

The Q-audio cable (with conventional 1/4-inch plug) is great on either.

Both Audezes have supplanted my T1s, HD800s, D7000s, and, alas, my (bass-light) R10s.

Time marches on...

It always amazes me how two people who both enjoy music and listen to a lot of it can have such different preferences. I haven't heard the 3 yet, but for me, the LCD2 was not in the same league as the Omega. Hell, it's hard for me to even compare them because they are just in such different categories for me.

Oh, so there is a Senn veil.  Thought so.  tongue_smile.gif

I would call it the Audeze veil.

Explains why folks have been cranking up knobs on the LCD3 even though they are supposed to be more sensitive.  People are going to need a solid desktop amp to power through the extra acoustic impedance like the HD600/650 though I figure that's not a problem for folks buying $2K headphones.  

Except for the chap who running his laptop w/ all sorts of ToTL phones.  That was fun.  tongue_smile.gif

I know Sankar said they were more sensitive, but I was cranking up the volume knob about an 1/8 turn more with the LCD3 than the r2.

I also noticed this "resonant bass" on the LCD-3. Seems on the flabby or uncontrolled side to me, tends to be too prominent on mixes with some bass, and distracting from the other elements of the mix.

Almost same thing. Not flabby or uncontrolled, at least for me, but just muddy, imprecise, and without punch. I much preferred the r2 bass.

Really? I find the bass more controlled than my R2s (which I was able to A-B directly over 2 nights). See what I mean about consensus?

That's because you both have different phones.  blink.gif

Exactly. smile.gif

 

I've got Patricia Barber on right now...simply breath taking...bass/mids/treble/soundstaging/air...hard to find a weakness on these cans.

That's why you are not on my list of people whom I would trust. tongue.gif Besides I never said it was uncontrolled or flabby.
