which means it's more bloated

better? if better means less of it and more subdued compared to the bass, mids, than yes, which makes the lcd2 more punchy again

trades? exchange? greater reach? presence region?

 

i feel the lcd3 have more sub bass quantity, both with music and test tones, noise, and less punch

(again using terms with 'better', "better seal") and about the effect of a stronger seal and comparing the full size open ortho lcds to iems, well that's something i leave to scientists

 

i will just tell you that the lcd2s driver is heavier, have more mass, therefore more kinetic energy, therefore more punch

 

my job is done here

Much of a storm in a teacup imo. Both the LCD-2 and LCD-3s, at least mine, had a quite similar bass response compared to any other headphones. They are surely more similar than dissimilar. The LCD-3s are the more transparent and higher-end sounding headphones and that's that. The LCD-2s ultimately do not resolve on the same level.

post #2208 of 3087

the lcd3 does have more resolution, detail etc... but also in terms of sound, when compared, the lcd3 and lcd2, they present the music differently, enough differently that many do not feel comfortable thinking of the lcd3 as the pure successor of the lcd2 and/or end missing some of the sound of the lcd2

 

but of course all the lcds share the audeze house sound, the same soundprint that makes you feel 'oh, yeah, that's an audeze on my ears'

 

then again i'm not debating, is it like this or like that, since different chains and ears equal to different experiences, but more making some observation other may find useful when looking for some infos

 

again since i listened to both cans for extended periods and on the same chain, it's not like i write about it cos i think it's like that but cos i experienced it being like that

Nope dumping my open cans and going IEMs.  And yes the thought of having the PWD2/GS-X mk2 for fairly average monitors and lowly iems seems... unbalanced but it's paid for so meh.

I just got my lcd-3 today and im impressed . ( compared to a senn hd650 wih SAA cable).

Im wondering what are aftermarket cable options that makes it better without sacrificing  the bottom end .

Simply amazing pairing! The GS-X MK2 does a phenomenal job with the LCD-3/X/XC.

post #2215 of 3087

Tried a few days ago at the "Amps for the LCD-3" thread, but I'll try here too - 

Has anyone tried the LCD-3s with a Musical Fidelity X-Can v8 and can share their opinion on how they compare with some of the more popular choices for the headphone?

post #2216 of 3087

 

Solude, got my self a Master 9.

Love it, thanks for your advise , how ever I still did my own research too :)

post #2217 of 3087

People I need your help here, the thing is that I've got now the LCD-3's and it's one of the best if not the best (I haven't heard the SR-009 yet) headphones atm, at least the best that I've got :)

 

I'm looking for getting a better audio setup, something that will really wow me, I'm pairing the headphones with the STX sound card, and I must say that I don't know why you're saying it's such a mediocre sound card/DAC, I'm finding it quite good actually.

 

Like I've posted before about this, I went to listen to the Antelope Zodiac Platinum DAC, and while it's great there are some things I'm not really sure about, one of them being that their customer support is really too careful about giving out information about the DAC, which is a warning sign... the thing is that at this price point I'm looking to be getting something really really really amazing for a really long time.

 

So anyways, please people help me out here, I'm looking to spend about this amount of money for the best DAC at this price point, that there can't be possibly anything better and something that will really pair well with the headphones. - Say, can Resonessence Invicta possibly be a better DAC?

 

Any help is appreciated :)

Jason at Schitt has made it clear that they will not support DSD and DXD in thier TOTL DAC.

Schiit allows a 15 day trial period so I'd have no problem buying it as soon as it is released without any reviews. I'd have to hear it for myself, but expect it to be really good Schiit.
