Yep I am waiting on a 430HA but that's for my partner so I can get her off my system. Its an entirely self centred move :wink_face:

 

Like this?

 

Do I need to worry about those wires touching the grill?

Yeah like that, but my wires go around the bottom of the driver on both sides.

Yep, or you could listen Witheriff the grills, try both

Yip. Just like you. I tried the foam removal for 15 minutes then reinstalled. Too bright and it lost that Audeze house sound.
I prefer the foam.
Was worth a try tho.

^ Yep, worth a try for sure.

I saw a discussion somewhere round here recently (not this thread; don't have the link sorry) about Audezes and impedance and (amplifier) damping factor IIRC. A statement was made that orthodynamics need mechanical rather than electrical damping - and that the foam and stuff is needed and tailored to provide it.

FWIW. I have no understanding of the science or engineering involved and couldn't assess the credibility of the statement! And I'm the last person to discourage experimentation wink.gif

Ok so I just got a pair of lambskin LCD-3s... I'm finding them very uncomfortable. LCD-2s were fine comfortwise up until maybe 5-6 hours of continuous use, but these are bothering me after 20 minutes. It seems like the "hole" is smaller than the LCD-2, so my ears are getting squished (my ears stick out a bit from my head). Any solutions? Would the micro-suede make a difference?

Is that with the 3Cs or 3Fs.

Well many people started dropping the foam and use more open grills/no grills at all in their Hifiman headphones long time ago. Eventually Hifiman dropped it in their new products too.

I have read something similar, but with the difference that Audeze is using mechanical damping and Hifiman not. I think it was Jerg that wrote it.
