    Audeze LCD-2C Classic - Impressions Thread

    I've seen some good things about swapping to Vegan/Velour pads, but it changes the frequency response a bit.

    Help Me Decide Next Upgrade

    Hi all, Recently decided to sell a bunch of my entry headphones to try to move a bit more into mid-fi, I'm coming from the AKG K7XX, HE400i, and TH-X00. I like the TH-X00 but the sound was never quite full enough for me, I think I just really like the way planars present music. I had been...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    FWIW, Modi Multibit and Magni 2U is the pairing I've used with the HE400i and like it quite a bit. If you value portability and/or low end I would probably go with the iFi Mico iDSD BL. If you want a desktop setup from which you can upgrade your individual components from in the future I would...

    I use it on my work machine, volume is disabled for me (set to max, unchangeable).  I use the Magni 2U to manage the volume.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    HM5 Flat Sheepskins are excellent with the THX00, subjectively much better than the HM5 Flat Hybrid pads I was using prior.

    Using this test and a bass frequency test album on Spotify I can say that I hear down to 15hz, but 15hz-20hz sounds rolled off in comparison 25hz-30hz.

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    I've been using the HM5 Angled Velour pads on these for a couple of weeks while I used the HM5 Flat Hybrids with the THX00.  Just ordered a pair of HM5 Flat Sheepskins to go on the THX00 and switched the Flat Hybrids back onto my HE400i and gotta say, these are the pads for me.  Bass (sub and...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    They were selling for $249 around Black Friday/Christmas on Amazon and a few other sites, the prices changed back to normal in January but you can still find them for $229-$249 some places.

    For me, a little sub-bass boost of 2-3 dBs is perfect.  Then drop the mids just a touch and give it a little extra power.  Swapping pads helped me as well.   Ahhh.... such great listening.

      I went from a Modi to a Modi Multibit to pair with my Magni 2 Uber, and have been quite happy, but haven't really tried to A/B the DACs at all.

    For me, it's more about being familiar with the source material and being able to differentiate between the minutiae of the presentation within the gear, rather than about speed of switching between set ups to hear the differences.
