    Wells Audio - Impressions & Questions

    I have the Looking Glass 2 Level 2 and also had the older Looking Glass Reference. Both are excellent and tighten up the sound in a very natural way. I feel like the new Looking Glass has a bit blacker background and more body to the sound.

    Audeze LCD-5 Review, Measurements, Interview

    I’d suggest giving it a week or about 200 hrs. The LCD5 will easily show differences between cables. The stock cable didn’t make it more than a day since it sounded veiled to me, but I didn’t give it enough time. The 200 hour recommendation comes from Jeff Wells of Wells Audio about...

    Audeze LCD-4

    I agree.. most organic and linear sounding of all the cables I’ve tried with the LCD4. They’re cryo treated, and that seems to add a realism to the sound.

    Audeze LCD-5 Review, Measurements, Interview

    A couple of huge variables in these comparisons are headphone cables used and chain. Listening on the stock cable and the DHC Prion4 are very different experiences. Also, with such a low impedance, I would expect substantial variance between amps.

    Audeze LCD-5 Review, Measurements, Interview

    The sticking Rean connectors has always happened to me with Audeze’s cables. I feel they’re a liability for Audeze at this point. I’ve tried other plugs from Eidolic, Furutech, and others. I’ve never had the sticking issue with any other connectors. If they had a better connector, chances...

    Wells Audio - Impressions & Questions

    No, just enough for testing. Based on my experience with the Headtrip, I know I’ve got quite a bit of time ahead of me before it’s fully settled in. Good thing it’s sounding awesome in the meantime.

    Audeze LCD-5 Review, Measurements, Interview

    I’ve had ground loop hum with the LCD5 as well. I was concerned until I realized it was only when my iPad (streamer remote) was plugged in and I was using it while listening. If I don’t touch the iPad or unplug it while using it, there’s no hum. Based on the number of people experiencing...

    Wells Audio - Impressions & Questions

    That’s funny, I’ve done the same to make sure I wasn’t without a Wells amp. @Bonddam, I believe you’ve mentioned prior that you listen to some electronic music. How is the Cipher for that? I don’t want to lose the bass I’m currently getting with the Denafrips Terminator Plus, but I’ve heard...
