Maybe if you listen long enough to a bad master with tons dynamic compression it will sound good?  I doubt it.  And even if it did, as soon as you listened to something better it would be obvious you've gotten used to crap.  Personally I don't have the patience to listen to crap just to numb my brain to the point I stop reacting to it.

Today I got my LCD 3! Sadly I am still waiting for my Schiit Gungnir DAC to arrive. For now I am just driving it from my computer headphone jack to Mjolnir (through converter). Sounds pretty good so I can imagine the bump up once my DAC arrives!! Here is a pic!

I'm at 3 months. So I'm at the run home and put them on every night stage. biggrin.gif

I want to own multiple sets of headphones but just can't think of another set that could compete. Might just stay a one set of cans owner. wink.gif

If I was to add another set of full-sized cans, I think I'd go with the Alpha Dog Primes. Listened to them for quite a while at CanJam/RMAF recently and they sounded great. Really full and refined, especially for a <$1K (okay, just barely) set of 'phones. Also nice to have a pair of closed-back HP's around. Ended up going for CIEM's from Noble (K10's) instead, so the Primes will have to wait until the audio-investment-pool refills again. Cheers

I have Grado RS1, Beyer T1, Stax Lambda Pro (old!), LCD2r1 and 3F in my main stable. Used to be the 2r1 got nearly all my time until I put a tube amp with the T1. At that point it became about 1/3 T1, 2/3 2r1.

Since the 3F came along - and especially after I/the hp (delete one) adjusted to that rosy glow I mentioned - I hardly enjoy the T1 at all eek.gif

Occasionally I try the Lambda again, but it (not surprisingly after an Audez'e) always sounds too thin and light.

Haven't heard Alpha Dogs (they sound interesting) or the mighty HD800 (where I reason that as I don't like the Lambda much I may not like these but IDK).

They have been on my Radar for a while. Next year I think. Spending to much $$ on tubes at the moment. wink.gif

I have only had these cans for only about a week and every time I put them on I have a smile on my face. Anyone else pairing these with IFI IDSD micro? DSD files sound...breathe taking with the LCD-3f. Im curious to know if anyone has paired the lcd-3 with the Bakoon HPA-01 with the current output? I hear that these cans do well with a current input.
