I think the LCD-2 and the T1 are two of the most overrated headphones. The LCD-2 has nice thumpy bass, but that's it.

This, +1, agreed. T1 is ok if you can get it under $750 (was on sale at amazon, brand new) but not worth $1000+.

I don't know what I was thinking. I say LCD2s are mid-fi headphones IMO.

Well, I compared it to the HD650, and with a good amp LCD2 tightens up, but HD650 does not scale any higher from a "decent" amp so with my Beta 22, the LCD2 sounded noticibly better, but by a small margin, what was more significant was the size of the sound.  LCD sounded bigger of course.

They aren't that bad, they just lack finesse...

Oh ya, LCD2.2 definitely better than HD650, I had HD650, but just saying that LCD2/3 doesn't compete well with HD800 or HE6.

I think the 3 does to an extent, but not the 2.

Lmao. No it's my home in North Carolina. The kid gets out of school and here we are . Two cars 3 cats 6 dogs and a 7 year old . So full,house. And I am 57 so not young either although I wish I were .

I wanted to take the lampizator but it is too big . The DAC is the new ps audio DS. this is why the Hugo people hate me .

The mids are that finesse, It not as forward as it should be, it too hidden.  The treble is fantastic, and the bass is big, creating the big sound, but if you AB, it's not as tight as the HD800 or HE-6 and the mids are not as forward.  I wouldn't mind the resolution of the HD800, the realism of the HE-6, and the big sound of the LCDs.  It would be the most perfect.  

post #11606 of 24348

Actually, I take back everything I said.  :biggrin:  I like them, it sounds fantastic given the recording is good.  I'm a treble guy, and it sound pretty accurate to me.  This is exactly what I like.  If anybody knows my posts, I always ask for details and clairity, or should we say resolution.  These are definitely fantastic.  These are not like iems, I take that back also after listening to better recording.  Note to self, don't start out with pop music.  :D

I use ODAC, and I have a long history with it, and I am very satisfied with it.  It does 24/96, but I don't believe it does DSD if you need a special DAC for it.  

 

Can you recommend me some tracks you think the HD800 does well with?

post #11610 of 24348
Well,ok. If you use jriver or foo bar you can down sample on the fly. If you like Elvis thee is a download at acoustic audio
It's the stereo 57 DSD It is fantastic. Also red book cd to buy though count Basie Kansas City shout . It's on Pablo records.
Either one is fine and will shine those headphones.
