    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

      That is actually a very interesting thought, with the new fazor thing they got going, I barely have any room left for my ears.    I'll try the usual "stretch the headband a lot" routine to see if it helps. That actually might be it

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    Yeah I have a few spare parts to play with. Sad story, my rev1's right driver died a few months after warranty ran out.   Turns out it costs an arm and a leg to repair those without warranty, ends up being much more sensible to buy a new LCD2 with a brand new warranty, hence all my troubles.

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    Great, so I either went insane or got a badly constructed LCD2? It is quite bad, gives me headaches just from wearing this thing (never had a problem with the rev1)   Anyway, I think I solved my problem, behold and despair! I present to you, Audeze LCD-2 - Frankenstein Edition!     I've...

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    So, strange question: does anyone else feel that the newer LCD2 models are an awful mess when it comes to microphonics?   Just put on your LCD2s, no music, and tap your fingers on the cable where the Y splitter is, it will sound like an damn earthquake in your head.   I don't know how, but...

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    Does anyone know if Audeze is still experiencing failing (dead) drivers with new LCD2 headphones or did they sort that out completely now?   I'm thinking of buying a new pair of LCD2s, but am afraid if they are still having driver reliability issues. My current LCD2s had 3 driver failures in...

    Quote:   This doesn't always work it seems. If I turn on the unit and do the above, the battery does not drain at all, quite nice. Bad bit of news is if I play something on the stock player for a few seconds, pause it, and then repeat these steps the battery will still drain like crazy...

    Opinions Wanted: What Is the Most Expensive Pair of IEMs That You Would Consider Exercising with?

    I use my JH16s for exercise and jogging, can't quite jump over a bridge, but haven't had any concerns so far.

    Quote:   You can always "update" to the old version, should the need arise. Downgrading the firmware works exactly the same way as upgrading.   On a sad note, the screen protector that iBasso was kind enough to include scratches from just about anything. I got a large scratch on it...

    It pains me to say it, but I've reverted back to firmware V1.03 for the sake of SQ. I really liked the changes of the new firmware, less sibilance, more emphasis on mids, poorly recorded records started sounding great, but the music that was brilliantly recorded and mastered stopped sounding...

      Quote:   The sound did appear to change, how very odd. It appears less sibilant, does anyone else feel the sibilance went down or am I just crazy? Some songs that really hurt my ears don't appear to do that anymore.   EQ is still rubbish, oddly enough just turning the thing on...

    Does anyone know if a firmware update could even fix an issue like battery drain? I have suspicions this is more the fault of the hw design than a software issue. The amp turns off when the music is not playing for a while, you can hear it, what is else is left that's draining the battery we can...

    I'll second that. I'm hard pressed to find any SQ differences between my humble home rig and the DX100 with my JH16. Which is all I ever wanted out of a DAP.   Quote:

    Wow it has a search button at the end of it! My day just got a whole lot better :)   And yes, the J3 UI was.. interesting, to put it lightly. After using it so much I have absolutely no qualms about the DX100's UI or even it's bugs.   Quote:
