    DAC for IE800

    I'm looking for recommendations on a good DAC to pair with the Sennheiser IE800 to get the most out of them. Using them right out of my MacBook pro (mid 2015 model) the highs sound a little harsh. I'm looking at the audioquest dragonfly red as an option though I note some reviews mention that...

    [HELP WITH FINAL DECISION] Sennheiser HD 600 vs Fidelio X1

    I found the mid range of the HD600 to be superior and probably the highlight of the headphone. The mids of the X1 seemed a bit recessed IMO. I never tried to EQ the HD600, sure it lacked visceral bass and that's one of the reasons I don't own it any more but the bass is still present just not...

    Do people here generally buy expensive interconnects for the Gungnir/Mjolnir stack or just whatever is cheapest. Can you guys recommend something decent for me from Amazon UK? I'm not sure if I should go for the cheapest available. I don't want to be sacrificing on sound quality to save a few...

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    I'm getting the itch to try the LCD 3. I get the feeling you'll also be on to the LCD 3 in no time. Is it me or do a lot of us at Head Fi have some kind of addiction, always looking for that new "high". I really need to delete my account......

    That's out of the price range being considered. There two polls one for amps below $1000 and another for amps below $2000.

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    Does Audeze recommend any particular amp for the LCD 2? Or is there a particular amp that they normally use to demo the LCD 2?

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    I think it's because they are both considered amongst the best headphones available and also the price is similar (at least in Europe, I guess in the US the LCD 2 might be noticeably cheaper).

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    Bamboo is lighter but I think rosewood looks better. Not sure about sonic effects, if any. For the HD 800 you should probably get a better amp from what I've read. Also from what I've read they are not very forgiving and also fatiguing so maybe not the best for casual listening. I don't have any...

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    I don't think the LCD 2 sounds dark at least with the O2/ODAC. The only time I thought so was when comparing classical music with the T1 and the LCD 2.    The warranty is 3 years and transferrable which is really good.   The headphone seems sturdy but I've heard of issues with the wood...

    If you scroll to the bottom of the review, page 2, i.e.:   http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/audeze-lcd-x-fazor-and-fresh-listen-current-lcd-2-and-lcd-3-page-2   Next to the LCD 3 and LCD X it says "wall of fame" but next to LCD 2 it only says "stuff we like". This seems to imply the LCD...

    The conclusion seems to be that the latest LCD 2/3 with Fazor have better imaging but not as much bass as he would like.  Looks like the LCD 2 is getting removed from the wall of fame.

    O2 AMP + ODAC

    Calm down, no need to be rude. I think you need to put things in perspective, it's just an opinion about a headphone amp, not something important enough to take personally, lol...

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    Since you can vote for as many amps as you like, it doesn't necessarily mean the Lyr is better than the Mjolnir. There are a few possibilities for the results:   1) More people drive or have heard their LCD 2 with the Lyr than Mjolnir 2) More people prefer the Lyr with the LCD 2 than the...

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2

    What I had in mind was (2) i.e. vote for amps you feel has a good synergy with the LCD 2. Then the results should show which are the most popular amps among those that go well with the LCD 2. I guess popularity would depend on a mixture of different factors i.e. cost and quality. So like someone...

    OK, I see. I think this is where we have different ideas. For people from say Europe, this might not be an advantage. This is why my hypothetical question assumed identical products. I might not necessarily have convenient access to the customer service of a US based operation.

    No, it was a hypothetical question regarding identical products but one made in the USA and the other in China and the chinese product happens to be cheaper. I am not saying this is always the case in reality.

    So that begs the question, how much extra (as a %) would you be willing to pay for a made in USA Schiit vs a made in China Schiit?    For example take the Mjolnir at $749. Would a $600 price tag Mjolnir made in China tempt you?
