Just Sold My LCD-2 Rev 1...Where To Go Now? - Page 2

post #16 of 25

Yes we do, the funny thing is I had the LCD-2 and am looking to go to the Denon D5000 as my end game headphone, and barid had the D5000 and moved to LCD-2.  I really do think D5000 will be up my alley, perhaps in a sense even moreso than D7000 too.  If not that's it I'm done I'm sticking with JH16.

I am in the same boat. I want to sell my rev1's as since getting my piano forte's I simply do not listen to them anymore but I still want a full sized headphone. I had the D5000's and liked them a great deal but I do not feel it would be good going back to them after the LCD's. Muppet face recommend the fostex's.

I really have a thing for the "Japanese" sound. I really dig my SET amp and horn loaded PF's matched with my 801, it has that vintage, simple and yet involving sound. I like the idea of the big JVC's as well and the woody AT's

It's not that I don't like them, I just have more headphones than I can use (and yet there are still more I want to try).  They end up hanging on their stand most of the time.  They are definitely more fun than the LCD2's for bass heavy music.

This might seem crazy to some but i STRONGLY recommend trying Soundmagic HP100. If you are in Melbourne you can gladly try my set. I know these arent expensive, but they are without doubt incredible! I too own or have at least tried most of the hi end and midfi, and since buying these (after a review session), i dont listen to ANYTHING else.

^^ The more reviews that I read, the more my curiosity is peaked. The hp100 is looking like a serious hp.blink.gif

I had the HP100's and they're an excellently balanced headphone. They won't wow you on first listen but they do everything really well and have a smoothness to their presentation. I don't want to derail the thread but does anyone know how HP100'S compare to the Mad Dogs?
post #22 of 25
Never tried mad dogs but I have several T50rp of my own and the HP100 in my opinion are far more entertaining to stock t50rp and slightly modded t50rp. Very modded t50rp (shell and all) are too different to compare but both among my top cans ever.
Don't get me wrong Hp100 sound nothing like T50rp, to be clear. If I could only have one factory built mass produced headphone it would be hp100- but as logic dictates people's individual tastes and hearing ranges will of course always vary so there's no definitive answer.

In a surprise twist of fate, I am finding I enjoy my modded Denon D2000 (Mark L modded and 18AWG Jena Labs Cable) to my Denon D5000.  The bass punch on the D2000 is insane with the mods.  Think I'll put the D5000 up for sale now..

Well, my LCD's have gone and been replaced by Beyerdynamic T5P's and though it is early days (Only got them today!) I prefer the sound of the T5P's, smoother, more detailed and involving than my old LCD's I feel.

Check out the Philips Fidelio X1, from what I have been reading it might be the sound signature you have been looking for....
