    LZ-A4 Impressions and Discussion Thread

    It seems the Blk B/Red F somewhat lessens the mid bass hump vs the Black B/Pink F..to me. May just be the increased upper frequency balance difference.

    LZ-A4 Impressions and Discussion Thread

      Nope-I'm still on these too. Provides the best balance of bass, mids, and highs to me. I like the mids on this combination as it seems the most natural-not too thin nor too forward. Bass has articulation, balance, and level and the detail is still there on the high end-or, so my old ears say...

    LZ-A4 Impressions and Discussion Thread

         I have the same issue with the Blue Fronts ..just too sharp in the upper mids though I do like the treble extension. This sharpness-seems to thin out the instruments whose frequency ranges this falls in. With the Red Fronts, instruments just sound more fleshed out,more body and soul...

    LZ-A4 Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Absolutely no worries here Peter, if it wasn't for your review and input on the A4's, I wouldn't have jumped on the band-wagon. I owe you the humblest of 'Thanks'. Thoroughly enjoying the A4's.

    LZ-A4 Impressions and Discussion Thread

    You know the A2 and A4 sound similar though the A4 has virtually no bass bloat, is more even handed- excelling with it's midrange reproduction and perhaps more revealing because of these attributes. I really do like them both though the A4 has numerous benefits other than just the sound: tuning...

    According to the chart-the Green-Grey-Pink filters change the bass extension as well.

    Great to have the ability to adjust for our preferences.

    LZ-A4 Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Yeah that 'bright' perhaps slightly 'edgy' is what prompted me to move from the blue front nozzle filters to the red. It seems to me that the upper midrange frequencies-think the 3k-4k region is in better balance for me with the red fronts. Since this is the frequency region we are most...

    LZ-A4 Impressions and Discussion Thread

      Received the A4 yesterday and was able to listen for a bit and compare with the LZ A2. The A4 is very well balanced with excellent fidelity in all frequency bands.  I'm using the RED backs and Black fronts -haven't had a chance to experiment with all the options yet. My admittedly short time...

    Philips Fidelio X2 : A Review by Baycode

    I find your observations pretty spot on to my feelings regarding both of these phones. Both excellent phones in their price range though different strengths and weaknesses.

    Closed cans upgrade

    Yeah, it's good to know one can purchase just about any part of a phone from the manufacturer for replacement. I don't have any experience with the canamp and can't help with this question.

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    Don't know how the D5000 bass compared with the D2000 I had, but I thought that while the bass was good in range and quality-the quantity was a bit overblown with much material. And I do like bass. There was also a treble peak that, while not too offensive, just drew attention to itself. The...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

      There's a noticeable difference as has been discussed. I think the bass is pretty close in impact/slam/presence. The X2 didn't sound to me as if the bass was reduced much but the graphs indicate a bit less level. The X2 was maybe a bit more articulate-both have great bass-definitely not...

    The Beyerdynamic DT250 Thread

      Not to my knowledge. The website I pointed too previously has a couple of different cables as well as just the cable end for making your own. The pins are small on the connector and need to be soldered. Not a problem if you know how, though it will accept only a finite range of wire...
