LCD Fatigue

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi Folks,

I've had my set up of Gugnir -> Mjolnir -> LCD XC for about a week or two now.

I really loved it's sound and used it fairly consistently and ended up getting a 4 pin xlr straight through extension cable from Blue Jeans Cable so I could use it across the room, and more often.

Now when I'm using it it seems very very fatiguing at the old volume I used to listen at, which is about 8 oclock. Its seemingly grating at almost any volume. Both the Mjolnir and Gugnir I bought here and should be fairly burned in.

What do you think could be going on?

Your ears need a break.  Take a few days off from headphone listening and let your ears recover.

Maybe it has something to do with their being closed? That might depend on what you're used to.

That may be the case, but it seems somewhat sudden and my ears feel fine without them. I feel like something had happened almost. I dont think the cable could've done anything to harm the amp or the headphones, it seems to work as it should.

You probably just need a break from the old sound. If you need to listen, I'd lower the volume or maybe do a bit of equalizer to reduce the treble.

Maybe ask on the LCD-XC thread. Maybe someone's using it with those source/amp and has some insight.

Closed headphones, as mentioned here in this thread, can cause fatigue.  My Denon AH-D2000 can sometimes cause fatigue on some tracks.

 

The headphone may just have a peak where your ears are sensitive.  Try lowering one frequency band at a time with EQ and see if you can get

 

it to go away.  Otherwise you may have to look into other headphones or different music.

Why do closed headphones cause more fatigue than open ones?

More sound pressure. Sometimes reverberations. Many closed models have more bass too.
