Some questions about the LCD-2 (Revision 2)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

Before reading further, please keep in mind that i'm a basshead.

 

I'm thinking about getting an Audeze lcd2.2 in about a half year. I know it's still a while, but I gotta save up for them (the price tag is quite huge).

The headphone I got at the moment is a beats pro detox (Don't hate me please, I know they suck for what i've paid for, that's the reason I'm getting the Audeze).

I don't have the chance to listen to an Audeze LCD2, or any Audeze headphone in that matter. Here isn't a single shop I can find in the Netherlands (The country i live in) that sells any Audeze headphones, that's why I'd love to have the following questions answered:

 

 

Where should I buy them? I can't find any shops in the Netherlands.

The beats pro detox have a HUGE amount of bass, which I do enjoy, do the LCD2.2 have the same amount of bass, or more/less?

Also, i've heard the wood in the headphone cracks sometimes. How often does this happen? And if it cracks, can i still use it, or will i damage it even further?

And a question i've asked a while ago, but too bad no-one was able to answer at the time: what's a good cheap amp for it? (I can't really tell a price, since this will be the first amp i'll ever own, i'm an audio newb compared to you pro's)

Another question: What general source should i use? Will a laptop hooked up with an amp do the job? If not, please give me some examples.

And the last question: How would it sound if i directly hooked it up with a laptop? If you need any info about the hardware that's inside it, just ask me and i'll take a look.

 

 

I hope you guys can answer my questions! Thanks in advance :)

 

PS: Please explain things like I'm 5, like i've said earlier I'm an audio newb compared to you guys.

PPS: Don't be afraid to post a wall of text, I'd love to receive a very detailed answer!

Thank you very much for answering my questions :)

I do apologize for asking a question that has been asked multiple times, but i just couldn't find any threads that had the same questions :(.

Oh is this the amp you're talking about?

And do you have any idea what source will do the job better than a laptop/ipod?

Sorry for the late response, but i don't really get what a DAC is, i've searched the forum a bit and found that it means a Digital to Analog Converter.. But what does this mean? And is it something like an amp that i need to buy and hook up with the headphone?

 

:) Thanks in advance!
