Get the DX700 then, the difference I remember reading is not that pronounced(or was it)? See I made you feel better about your future purchase.

Just stumbled on this thread. I have owned both for quite some years now. I even decided to send in my JVC DX 1000 to an experienced modder that painted the headphones (for dampening), and added dampening material in the cups and I also changed cable for balanced operation. I can thus not do an A-B I always liked the headphones and their character on the right material (not the best allrounders), but after the mod they got more of allrounders and can be pushed a bit harder before they go nutty. I still recognize them as DX 1000 but couldn´t be easier to listen to! Before the mod they sure could get honky at times.

 

I also got a LCD-2 REV 2. Owned a Rev1 previously also during my nutty years but that is sold. 

 

As for a comparison I enjoy them both there is a reason I kept these and Sony CD3K and sold other headphones like T1, HD 800, Sony SA-5000, markl D5000 etc. Neither are going anywhere.

 

I was totally sold by the LCD-2 when it arrived. But the DX 1000 character is just so right on the right material manage to pull that larger then life bit off quite often. And it´s a huge plus it isolate so I can play late at night. I have neighbours and it´s silly how much the LCD-2 leaks. But that said I never feel a definite urge to switch headphones when I have either my LCD-2 or DX 1000 on. Particularly not now that I finally got my speaker adapter for my Yamaha RDS-440 receiver for my LCD-2. This really bring the LCD-2 to the next level for me. Not bad for a 15$ amp beating headphones amp 100x as expensive.

 

So overall Audeze LCD-2 with disregard of the open vs closed issue. modded DX 1000 is the best closed headphone I ever listened to though.

How much did the mod costya I have a dx700 here that I am about to buy and I know it has a similar driver. It could use some modding.

I don´t think there is a set price list or something? Just a guy I know here in Sweden he don´t have any regular business.

I have the exact same mod as oqvist since I bought my pair from the guy who modded his headphones :)

 

( Yes, that means he experimented on my headphones.. ;) )

 

I bought them modded and was curious hearing them without the damping, so I removed it.

 

I tried to listen to them for maybe a month, then I felt that I really had to get the damping material back in place ASAP!

 

With some damping material behind the driver I think they sound less distorted and more "hifi" overall.

 

I love the modded version ^^ Without mod, not so much.

 

 

Edit: I still have the original cable.

Edit2: Regarding LCD2.2 vs DX1000: I think that the LCD2 sound more "alive", they even make studio recordings feel more like live conserts, while the modded DX1000 sound more "HiFi" and less distorted.

just got a used pair of dx1000s, and so far so good.  The pads have a bit of a musty smell to them, and i would not mind buying a new set and swapping them out, but have no idea how to do that....  don;t want to guess wrong on the removal part and mess them up.

 

I am comparing them to Denon d7000s and the new d7100s. One thing for sure, the DX1000s are really listenable - they are sweet and rich, but still detailed and dynamic,  not perfect, but so far I am digging them....

 

 

I've heard and Love LCD-2's, which is how I found this thread, but do not have them at home for a comparison right now.....

They are very addictive aren't they. Pick a track with some really deep bass and be prepared to be blown away.

It's nice when you make a purchase and it turns out your happy.

The DX1000 is just absolutely amazing for my EDM stuff. Even though I own the TH600 and Signature DJ that are quite fantastic for EDM I prefer the DX1000 overall. Just a richness and fullness to synth lines while keeping that impactful deep bass beats running along. It is also really really something else with my jazz tracks.

 

Cannot compare to the LCD2 though as I do not own one, even though I've heard it. They are both darker headphones to me, but the DX1000 hits harder from memory. I'd pick the LCD2 for my hard rock and metal stuff though.

Try the gladiator soundtrack when the action get going the action get going. DX 1000 is a real drama queen :)
