    for members with both the pre production and production pads, is it also plausible that the latter pads are stiffer and places the ear farther away from the transducers, thus causing the 4k mid-treble emphasis?

    Burson Soloist and LCD2 with DAC?

    hi, i think you already have a good setup. you'll probably see more improvement on the hd650 if you recable them balanced and get a balanced source and amp, but it will probably cost you more than you'd want to spend.   you will get  improvement across the board with the lcd2 but it is...
