Introduction post

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I just created my account and wanted/was told to introduce myself! I have been a reader for a while but now deciding I want to participate in the community. I have had a hi-fi system for about a year and a half and I dove right in... 

 

My equipment:

 

- Audeze LCD-2

- Norse Audio cable

- Schiit Audio Lyr

- Cambridge Audio 840C as my DAC

 

I like all types of music from metal, EDM to standards and classic jazz. I will probably go deaf in my later years as I tend to crank it up. Not the jazz so much but anything with a deep bass thump, I like to rattle my brain. Anyway, I look forward to joining the conversation, starting today!

 

Goodjr

Welcome--you have some excellent equipment.

 

Try to keep the volume down to a dull roar.  Not too far down the road, you'll be glad that you did.

How do you like them? Have you listened to the Audeze?

If you have a smartphone or a tablet, download a free decibel meter to check your listening volume. It's pretty easy.

I have the HE 6 and their very similar little brother HE 500.  I also have the LCD-2 rev. 2.  I like all of them.

 

While others prefer the bass and velvet presentation provided by the LCD-2, my preference is for the more balanced and neutral HiFiman.  The HiFiman gives you excellence and balance plus body through all frequencies.  They are great for all types of music.

 

For me the duel for the top spot is between the HE 6 and the HD 800.

I have done that actually. I think 120db was the highest reading.

II just listened to a pair of HD 800's last week. They were very new so break in time would have helped the bass. I found them extremely clear and precise. Much brighter than my LCD-2's. I absolutely love the low end of the LCD's. I must admit I have the equalizer adjusted in iTunes adding more low end. The purists would prob frown upon that. I keep a flat EQ for my hifi system, but I have the benefit of a wonderful subwoofer there. Back to headphones, things have changed for me since yesterday, 6hrs on ebay and my LCD's have sold! Now I have the lovely dilemma of choosing between LCD-3's or HD 800's. I still need to have a listen to the LCD-3's. Will do that soon.

The 3's are great cans--more sound stage and balance than the 2's.  Also just a bit better at everything else.  But they are also almost $2,000--about 2 x the price of the 2's.

That's good to hear, I like what the 2's did, happy that the 3's are just more of the same. You're right, the 3's don't come cheap! I did well selling the 2's though so that will help. Are you using an aftermarket cable at all?

Maybe they will have perfect hearing aids in the next 40 years! I don't go that loud for too long. Besides I'm not sure how accurate those decibel reader apps are anyway.
