Personally i think you need to check the conectors to the headphone. They are rather delicate (personally i treated them like they were made to break at the first move), so there is a chance if you pluged the cable badly that you damaged the connector.

 

If not, probably just a cable issue, nothing to worry about.

How do you compare the difference between LCD-2 and HE-400 .............?? Well, How about over twice the price.

Come-On-Man!

There actually isn't that much of a difference, asides from the colorations of the two.  Around 300-400 dollars is the sweet spot for headphones right now, because you start getting into past flagship models from the audiophile companies.  Anything beyond that and you hit severe diminishing returns.

If LCD2 didn't win then Audeze would have a problem on their hands..

Personally, I don't think the prices of these headphones should be taken into consideration. You have an American company (IIRC) and a Chinese company. It would be no surprise to me that the LCD2 would be on par with the HE-400 despite their difference in coloration and difference in price.

I don't know how many of you guys are aware of the 150h required burn-in period, but many ppl seem to jump to their conclusion after two days of listening...

My HE400 (latest version) benefited a lot from burn in, more than any cans I've ever owned.

What happens if I start listening on the 149th hour of burn-in?

It says very clearly that you need 150 hours. I don't know how you could mess that up.

Where does it say you need 150hrs? I honestly think mine is just getting to that point as I never left it running for burn -in like my dynamic drivers.

Yes am starting to notice a change already since giving them at least twenty four hours of use starting this past Sunday night with some awesome treble starting to flow through the bass warm audio atmosphere. I never thought the two could exist so richly. Its a sound I have never heard before except perhaps on some speakers in my youth. Its going to be a nice burn in journey indeed.

You got to listen before then to see the shiny star magic sprinkling treble unfolding amongst the thumping thundering bass avalanches.

Yes they did a good job on getting that info out. Alas great excitement blinds us like beautiful heaving bosoms of a delicious woman setting the wedding ring trap with wicked smiles and eyes alive with desires greater then our manly little boy minds.

If you're listening to them and it turns 150hrs, there a ginormous sonic explosion that could destroy your ear drums and melt your brain. Be careful.

I've been logging quite a few hours on mine and I've been noticing them smooth out a bit as I keep listening. I wonder what the life of the drivers is, 20,000 hours or something like that?

If you guys think 150 hours is something, just wait till you hit the 15,000 hr mark... OMMMMGGGG L3000.gif
