The sound is warmer, and richer at the expense of comfort, soundstage, and treble clarity.

That LCD2 had a signature I'm TRULY missing. It's technically inferior to my vegan LCD2, and it's been passed around like a cheap hooker, but I don't care. I want that one.

If I get it, call my dreams on Head-fi fulfilled. I'll eventually score an HE-500 as an alternative though. LCD2 + velour HE-500 = I'm pretty much done. Unless jerg wants to be super awesome and do some jergpads for me. biggrin.gif

 

 I thought you hadn't demoed out the he 500's yet?

Yeah but they were on my head after yours. They told me they didn't like being with you. Sorry.

You well regret the decision in a few minutes, and I thought I was the only one that changed my mind so much when it came to audio.

You should go back and follow up on that. You will always love the d7k best of all.

I think we all have "old loves" that come up from time-to-time.  We often remember all the good times of those moments, but tend to forget about the bad ones.  I once had a similar experience with the Grado HF-2.  But, after getting into the ortho scene, I couldn't tolerate the sound of the HF-2, so I put them up for sale the next day.  To me, clearly the fantasy was all that was there.  The reality was that they were not as good as my mind had perceived them to be and the recall of the sound was off a bit.

 

The same can happen with ladies, too.  tongue.gif

Tried my jergpadded HE500s with the SPC Hifiman cable (that I got from HE300s for my parents some time ago) today, I'm digging the sound! Before with default pads the SPC cable sounds out-right too bright, but off-set by the more even upper end response of the jergpads they actually now sound snappy and detailed without that piercing brightness. Bass tightens up a bit too. I'm contemplating dropping my old Hifiman coppers and just go with the SPCs.

Now? Cables have always been a big part of headphone hobby.

ninjames, what's the tonality of those Stax? I'm like #5 on the list. Trying to mentally prepare myself. Mid rich? Bright? Bass?
