It's the shape of the LCD2 pads. They are big and bulky and angled. They press against my jaw when the headphone is worn, even though they are soft. 15 minutes, tops, is all I can wear them for. I slept with them once and woke up with intense jaw pain. It seems to vary from person to person.

 

No comment on He-400 or non-HD800 Senns (HD800 = super comfortable, although pads are a little harder than I would prefer) and Mad Dogs with Shure pads I can wear for hours on end (I have heard Alpha Pads are less comfortable). Just frustrating when something as basic as fit becomes an issue.

HiFiMAN HE-400i and HE-560, both newly announced at CES, will weight around 350g... You might want to check it out - http://www.head-fi.org/t/698831/fresh-outta-ces-the-hifiman-he-400i-and-he-560/270

I saw it. I might have something to use my Cable Company credits on. I'm watching that and Oppo PM-1. But the T1 is also down around $900, but supposedly T90 gives around 90-95 percent of that headphone's performance for about $600 and is much newer.

 

Choices, choices...I really just upgrade my DAC/amp and let the reviews all come out later this year.:beerchug:

What a fantastic list. I'd love to hear your opinion on the Beyerdynamic T5P 

post #4806 of 4945

Amazing thread.

 

If you're still updating it, you could maybe include the new Audeze LCD-X and LCD-XC in it!

post #4807 of 4945

Agreed. Probably the two additions I would like to know about the most are Beyerdynamic's T5P and Audez'e LCD-XC.

Hi David.. 

 

HD800, LCD3 & HE6 are they really better headphones than Stax 007a ?

Well David stated in the Review that he sees it so even knowing that others don't. I belong to the second group owning HE6 and HD800 and Ω2. The SR007 MK1 with a great amp is superior IMHO but notice this applies only to the MK1 and not the 007A.

Hello,

 

As I'm french, I don't really understand the word "decay" used in the review. Could someone explain me what it does refer to or even translate it in french words?

Thank you.:wink_face:

Decay = From Old French "Decair." Meaning partial deterioration short of destruction.... roughly speaking.

Decay is used to describe how a sound 'extends' or carries on so to speak. If a drum is hit for example , natural 'decay' would be it's natural resonance that follows, if a HP had slow decay it would carry the resonance on for too long and this wouldn't be desirable. Another way to think of it is a headphones ability to accurately move and stop when required and with the correct energy. I suppose an impulse response graph or csd plot would be the objective way of seeing this . Probably not the best description but I hope this helps. Hopefully someone can add to this to make it easier .
