Totally agree with this. After running a couple dozen tracks through them I noticed that they are extremely forgiving and not as transparent as other headphones. They are colored and the bass still remains a bit atonal. Even with these major deficiencies the LCD-3TP is a vast improvement over the stock LCD-3. The pads are nice and comfy though!

 

The LCD-3 is a joke in stock form. Perhaps it's the seriously overpriced quality controlled stock sound, perhaps it's the atonal bass, perhaps it's the severely recessed mids....I don't know. I seriously don't understand the praise this headphone is getting. It seriously puzzles me. Could it be that my hearing is that bad/amazing that you guys are hearing things that I am not?! The TP'd version barely...barely managed to resolve certain distortions in some recordings. In stock form, there was no distortion!

 

For a TOTL headphone, the LCD-3 is a serious fail for me.

Stacks of bills would make ideal isolation feet for electronics. We could even start a vintage currency thread. I'm sure that bills issued before the U.S. went off the gold standard in 1932 have to sound better than the debased crap that passes for modern currency.

 

Sorry Marv, my twisted sense of humor sometimes gets the best of me. Seriously, keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to hearing both the stock and the modded LCD-3s.


My conspirators and I love twisted humor, especially potty jokes. I was seriously considering taking a few bills and creating a fine circular mesh out of them until I realized that would be illegal.

Ben Franklins are for wannabes.  People who are serious use gold leaf. evil_smiley.gif

The only worry I have in applying the mod is that if the paper is not applied correctly, it could smear the sound.....

Why not try the new Canadian $100 bills that are no longer made from paper/cloth, but are now made from single polymer strips - ---- polymer is the way to go!

I believe that using Chux Super Wipes would give a cleaner sound........

For a clinical sound......

Those also work great if you happen to have MRSA in your ears. The doctor told me...

post #102 of 275

I wonder if I stuff some TP into a RWA Audeze Edition amp if it will have the same affect?  Probably could use a few rolls.

post #103 of 275

Maybe its me but that last post is a bit uncalled for.

(Well, if the stock market doubles --fat chance-- I'll try a Stax 009 rig someday, but I'm not holding my breath.)



I agree except for my cable is ALO.
