I think we might be in the minority in wanting a more balanced and less U shaped frequency response.  My ideal TH600 would lift up the mids from the TH900, keep the sub bass extension but lower the quantity, and having the treble toned down.  I don't expect anything like the LCD, but something where no part of the frequency is strongly emphasized at the cost of something else.

Agreed... Maybe the upcoming Audeze's closed-back headphone is the answer. But still, it's nice to see a reasonably priced headphone that definitely has a potential to deliver something better than D7000 was.

The problem with the Denon's (I only tried the D2000).. Was the sibilance... I would be interested to know if the TH-900 or these new TH-600 have reduced the sibilance. That was a deal breaker for me with the D2000 because I thought they sounded awesome but they hurt my ears too much with the constant sharp "SSSSSSSSSSSS" sounds.

D5000 has no sibilance I can detect, out of all Fostex Denons it was the bassiest and with the most relaxed treble. Bass was too much though in stock form.

Your source and music must be pretty high quality then. None of my Denons old or new passed my most brutal sibilance tests except the D600 to some degrees.

What material do you use for that test?

I'd be happuy with it being a D7000 with slightly more mids and less treble. Keep that bass the same.

Sounds like LCD-2.2. wink_face.gif

Badly recorded J-Pop mostly. The sibilance is very blatant on some of those songs, and I did managed to get the CDs so bit rate cannot be a factor.

I get a loaner LCD2 very soon. However, I highly doubt the bass emphasis is near the same. Call it bass bloat or whatever, but the D7000 STOCK had my favorite bass ever. I didn't want it tightened, so no mods.

Still, we'll see how the LCD2 fares.

No, it's more civilized, hope you'll like it as it's more natural and closer to the real life reproduction.

I already have that in the Anniversary K702. For music listening, I prefer a more colored sound with extra oomph in the bass. There are a million natural sounding cans, but very few colored high end cans. The D7000 was the right fit for me, but the pads and Florida weather didn't mix.

Well, im sure I will love the LCD2 sound. Just as I love the HE400. Still, I miss that Denon D7000 bass.

Don't expect LCD-2 rev2 to sound like D7000... Especially in bass... Completely different story.

 

Mids? Yeah, pretty different...

 

Treble? As well...

 

 

The bass on LCD-2 rev2 is very tight and flat so you really can hear a quality bass guitar and recognize different tones... However, the impact is not so big as of D7000. I mean "boom" impact. Visceral impact is MUCH better with rev2.

 

Also, don't expect LCD-2 rev2 to be FUN... Actually, they are pretty consistent and some may even call them boring. They are both musical and near-to-neutral... And to my ears, they don't even sound like headphones - they are pretty real in comparison with other headphones.
