So....

I listened to the LCD 2, the LCD 3, the LCD-X and HE-560.

Coming from the HE-400, the one taht sounded best for me was the LCD 2.

This was a suprise for me as I expected the LCD 3 or LCD X to take my favorite spot.

Both LCD 2 and 3 were fazor.

 

So, I was listening from a Cowon i9 + burston solist (their asgard was not working).

The HE-560 sounded the most neutral in my view. I liked the fact that they simply sounded cleaner than the HE-400, and the bass was not so intrusive. It had almost verything "right". Very comftable, light, more controlled bass, cleaner highs.

I could not get focused on anything in those headphones, dont know why. It sounded as if everything was out of place. I think it might be due to not being used to that kind of sound.

 

The LCD-2 sounded as Id like the to sound. I tested the typica songs that should be great with LCD 2s but my surprise came when i runned classical with it. The highs were all there, and I could hear every note, but none were bothering me. I turned the volume up at far as the soloist could go, then to almost inaudible levels, and in both cases the sound was something I could really feel. But oh my god they are heavy.

I had neckpain after 30 minutes (and i use the HE-400, lol). The second thing I disliked was that I could not hear any space. It was 100% in my head sound.

 

In comparison the LCD-3 and LCD-X sounded more detailed, especially in the highs, but I actually did not like that.

 

Im still missing the HD800 and HD700, but ill have to find them somewhere else to listen to.

So far, I am not sure IF ill buy the LCD-2 if the HD700/800 turn out to be something I dont like.

They are clearly better than the HE-400, but im not sure Id pay taht much more for an increase that ID say is in the 15% range.

Amazing write up and review - thank you, OP.
Still didn't help me much decide on LCD-3 or HD-800, but it is another good reference to have when I get close to actually wanting to buy one or the other :)

I've done some comparison between the LCD2 rev1,HD-25 1-II, HD650, and MDR-7550. The last three have some professional application. My background is mostly as a listener, DJ with some studio production.

All great headphones but the LCD2 outperformed them by quite margin and irrespective of genres. The HD650 was close in some cases, the LCD2 was more capable. In part of the test I isolated certain bandwidth to listen for artifacts, distortion and detail.

Thank you. :)

These days I'm enjoying the HD 800 with the HDVD 800 when listening to music and I love it.

 

Also, I saw someone in my town walking with an LCD on, so I might look into another Audez'e headphone at some point.

Hah. I forgot about this thread. I ended up getting a freakishly good deal on a pair of LCD-2's, so I'm rocking them now. :)

Good stuff. I loved my LCD-2 when I had one. I'd love to try one through my HDVD 800!

May your LCD-2 love long continue!
