This was a joke; I heard nothing below 100Hz from my pair. biggrin.gif I meant to quote the ER4 post.

*shrugs* then your hearing is really messed up because the entire point of the DT48 is to produce sound at every frequency...

I guess it is.

 I have lcd2 rev2 and it does have the best bass of my three phones by a substantial margin. The lcd2 rev2 can sound a bit warm with a lot of amps. I have heard them with the bryston balanced amp and that is one amp that can really rein in the warmish signature that the lcd 2 can have with a lot of amps. When paired with the bryston the bass is a lot tighter and the dynamics really ramp up on the lcd2s.The audezes really do need a amp with a fair amount of power before they really wake up. I imagine the schiit mjolner would be another suitable partner for getting the most out of the audeze. I have not heard the dark star but it may be another good pairing for the audeze phones.

Orthodynamics are naturally warm, if an amp changes that about the LCD-2, its colored on the bright side of things.

 

Ignoring that, the LCD-2s bass is incredible.

Best bass for me is the HE-6, prefer it even to the LCD2 (Rev 2), which previously held that crown for me.

How does the pro 700 mark 2 compare in the scheme of things?

post #128 of 197

This was expressed at the start of the thread but I gotta put in a vote for the Pro 900's. 

 

Post burn-in, these are some of the hardest hitting headphones I've ever heard. I love their sound. 

 

Mix in a warm amp and you've got a beautiful setup. 

 

Only issue I do have, however, is with the earpads. I wish there was a aftermarket pleather option since the velour tends to be itchy with prolonged use.

The Audezes. Finish. Close this thread.

If you're up for it, you can put Alpha pads on the Pro900.  I did it about 6 months ago.  You have to sacrifice one of the two speed switch rings but it's worth it.  Or it was to me at least.  Let me know if you need any more info.

DT990pro with Beyer pleather pads. Bass cannon with fairly clear mids and mellow highs.

well, they are the only pair of headphones I know of that produces actual vibrations to literally shake your head with bass notes with their separate sensation55 bass-specific driver in addition to their normal rex40 driver. also has a built-in amp & bass boost feature. They are only $99 and obviously not intended to be an accurate neutral audiophile pair of headphones, but they literally shake your skull with rumbling bass. hahaha! that has to be interesting to try out.

 

best is a subjective/relative term, so who knows? there might be people looking for such a feature hahah
