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
