Been done already, needs to be something other than TP if anything at all.  Actually, purrin's pair has very impressive treble.  Best I've heard from an Audeze.  I'd say the treble clarity is on par w/ the 009 and might be more natural from recollection w/o the potential fatigue some might experience.  I didn't have that issue but some complained and I'm sure that's quite system dependent too.

Already tried it. It closes things in a bit and the headphone loses some speed. The stock foam is good.

That's a pretty strong endorsement.  I need to hear a good pair these...

Awesome that you already tried it.  Its always worth asking if you can squeeze more performance out of it for a fraction of a penny.

That is impressive.  I thought the treble on the veiled LCD-3 was one of it's biggest drawbacks.  It made cymbals sound plodding and mechanical.  Just a huge lack of air up there. (for the price at least)

 

And it's interesting that all this could happen with very little change in FR.

Also, the whole bit about "quilted", etc. LOL. this thread is FUNNY! but cotton is good material... in its various formats.

Looks interesting, I'll have to try it out!  Thanks, Purrin!

Oh yeah, embossed or not embossed?

Well, it's not all roses but pretty close.  Having such sweet, clear bass, treble and air (relative to Audeze) kind of made the vocals a slight touch pushed back for my tastes.  Not quite as neutral as I recalled the last broken pair.

Measurements are funky with the LCD3. When I have time, I'll post a few uncompensated measurements comparing the various pair I've measured.

A little EQ will fix the vocals.  It won't give anything else that kind of bass.

Eh, stop it!  I've always said the only time I'd EQ is if it was 1, maybe 2 bands at most.  I have enough of hard time deciding which is the better dynamic.  The two are so close now but for different reasons but a lot closer.  I just want someone to make an LCD4 or HD900 first so I don't have to figure it our on my own.  Plus people are making proper Stat amps too it seems (LL/ Aristeaus/Electra, etc).  Hopefully my incoming JBLs just make me quite the whole business.

Hehe...

 

I'd start with +3dB at 4kHz with 1.5 octave bandwidth and go from there.

Oh, I guess I forgot to mention the "open source" speaker project I was talking about with LFF today...

Does this work for the LCD-2.rev1 also.

yes it should. orthos behave similarly with damping.
