Euphonic Mid Range Headphone

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I currently have the HE-400 and HD600. I have a DragonFly as a preamp and use the Emotiva mini-X a-100 as my amp. I'm looking for a cross between both these headphones. The solid bass reproduction from HE-400 with the smooth mid range of the HD600. I'm looking for a EUPHONIC mid range. I want to hear the seductive female singers emotion. I want to feel the music more than appreciate its technicalities.

 

Any suggestions?

The only headphone that I researched that might work is the LCD-2, but I do not know any retailers in San Francisco that have them.

Well I'd say LCD-2 is exactly what you are looking for... Why not buy one online?

Just listened to the HD650, HD800, LCD-2, LCD-3, and a 1400 Beyer pair that I forgot the model of. I like the LCD-2. It has the versatility the HE-400s have down low but the mids and smooth highs that I am looking for. The HE-400s sound lifeless now :(. I will make the upgrade soon.

What do you think, how euphonic the sound of the HD800 is compared to the others?

maybe the w1000x could be something to consider too.. not sure if it will have the bass you're looking for though

I have not tried out the ath w1000x. Sounds like it is a great can. 

 

I find the HD800 very analytically. It sounded amazing for the first few minutes but I then got fatigued quickly. I'm a mids/bass head. I like treble but seem to EQ down slightly anyways. 

 

With the LCD2 I feel you get to see the whole picture. The HD800s put me on a ride to show me all the cool sounds I would otherwise miss.

 

I recommend finding a hifi store and trying them out. I actually preferred the less refined treble on the LCD2 instead of the LCD3. LCD2 is smooth enough for me ... I want to keep some type of edginess as well.

Btw just thought I'd mention that I saw a deal for the w1000x for 400 so if money is an issue at all they may be a great choice for price/performance ratio
