Best headphone like LCD 2 without the weight?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

So I loved the LCD 2 so so much but I just couldn't take the weight. I have tried the HE-400, and 500 but they are nothing compared to the LCD2. Is there any headphone that is lightweight but sounds like the LCD2. I know the static omega MKII sounds pretty good, but I'm a little hesitant to spend that much. Is there any other headphone that might get me the LCD 2 sound at a lighter weight and a better price point then the static?

You could try the Sennheiser HD650. They may not have as much bass but they sound almost identical to the LCD-2s.

HD650 has much much better treble than LCD2.

Honestly, from what I heard when I tried them both back to back, they were pretty close in terms of treble.

Honestly when I tried them with with good dac like X-Sabre, they're not even close.

Your point? What was the amp? I used a neutral HDVD800 DAC/Amp and the differences were minimal.

My point? We all hear differently. 

 

By they way, I don't mean to say that HD650 is a bright phone, it's not, both are relatively warm (though LCD2 is darker) but HD650 render treble much more beautifully than LCD2.

Don't forget about the driver changes on the LCD.  The upper range has been improved.

I had the hd 650 for a long time but I never thought you had that organic sound that the LCD 2 had. Is there maybe a solid amp that would help give them that sound? I was running them on a Little Dot Mk III.

Bottlehead Crack is the amp to get for HD650 currently, though I haven't heard with it yet. I still can't wrap my head around the term organic though, that sounds very subjective.

I think the best way to describe it was that with the LCD2 I felt like I was there. Every other headphone I have tried It felt like I was listening to headphones. Maybe it was the fact LCD2 is angled so it feels like the music is coming from in front of you rather then from the side. I guess that is what I am looking for something that feels like you are there and not listening to headphones.I'll look into the bottlehead creack amp.
