OH SHIIT!!! I FORGOT QUOTING SHOWS SPOILERS ARRRGGGG.
For once I'm glad I'm dyslexic, I couldn't read it fast enough.....

 

Yes, that's the compressor / limited.
All rack-mount effect units are sexy (as opposed to software ones)

I really don't find the 9-10 kHz spike bothering, not like the DT-880 which can be bothersome in long listening sessions. What I would say about the HE-500 treble spike is that it adds a bit of air to the sound and helps with imaging somewhat. It's smooth and comfortable to listen for a long time. Though that is with the velour pads paired with a Schiit Lyr. Paired with a portable amp though, I agree its treble spike can be a bit bothersome that's why the pleather pads exist just to tone it down to tolerable levels.

I am sensitive to upper mid sparkle. 

 

This means that most sub $80 headphones make me mad.

 

I realized this after I noticed that even the most well known reviewers don't mention the sparkles I was always mentioning and ranting on.

I've noticed that for a long time on Head-fi the unread posts thing doesn't work anymore. When I go into a thread and click on for example "16 unread posts" the page refreshes but is still on the most recent bottom post, and it no longer says that there are any unread posts. Has this happened to anyone else or is it just me?

I don't remember if the LCD 2.2 did this but man the LCD 3's do a good job at seperation.

 

Really good at it.

 

You will be even more surprised with the HE-500. Its instrument and vocal separation is almost on par with the LCD-3 thanks to its elevated treble response.

Although in terms of build quality... the HE-500 is way below the craftsmanship of the Audez'e headphones.

+9001 to the HE-500. Great headphone, but the 9 kHz spike bothered me too much to enjoy it. EQ it or get a warm tube amp (e.g. Woo Audio WA3). I definitely like it over the better textured, but extremely congested LCD-2 and inherently LCD-3.

If you like the DT880 then I'm sure it's you liking that kind of bright sound since the DT880's are notorious for being bright, brighter and more analytical than a K 701 in the "big 3" original audiophile headphones (DT880, HD600, K 701).

Digital compression is good for on the go. Many do it nowadays. But the old style of layering just rules for rock. 

 

Hmm, I would say that Digital Compression is on a need and song/genre need basis. Pop nowadays should use it as do most things but modern rock shouldn't.

Really?

 

LCD's aren't exactly the most well built. Very very good craftsman ship. But build quality isn't that high. The joints look and feel and have been reviewed to be weak.

No, but I don't think I want to be known for having a super inefficient headphone that doesn't sound much better than its younger counterpart for twice the price.

hm.... true. I haven't heard much of the he-6 since the revisions for the LCD-2 and the coming of the lcd-3 either.

jeez. last time you said SD. meh. Still floats your boat, eh?

post #77129 of 149574

This may just be the cutest episode of Oreimo yet

 

But yet, I have mixed feelings about it. Not sure if its just awesome. Or forced.

In build quality, I meant the feel and the materials used on the headphones. It's not as exquisite as the LCD-2/3 to hold at.

Durability wise, the HE-500 feels very solid but as with any expensive gear, it needs as much care and attention to as the LCD-2/3s.
