    The Bose NC 700 Noise Cancelling Headphones

    Regarding ANC, the XM3 have the darkest sounding cancellation. I recently updated the Sony's firmware to 4.2.2 and kept them on my head for the 40 mins it took to update them. The ANC was on but no audio playing through them. Every other headphone, including other Sony models and Bose models all...

    The Bose NC 700 Noise Cancelling Headphones

    Okay, today I went for another audition with a fresh mind and head and tried out both the XM3 and 700 side by side. The sound on the XM3 didn't seem that low-end like that day. It was fine. The comfort, which I originally said was fine on the 700, seems to be not holding up as much. It took me...

    The Bose NC 700 Noise Cancelling Headphones

    I finally got to try the Bose 700 out today at the Bose Store and the Sony XM3 at Best Buy, so two different (acoustical) areas. They were occasionally also playing subwoofers at the Bose Store. Tested with my 320 kbps offline tracks of Spotify Premium with iPhone 6+. I spent 20 minutes...

    Audeze LCD-2C Classic - Impressions Thread

    If you get a chance to audition these before purchasing, please try to use these with the Reveal plugin for the LCD-2C (also in Roon). Set it to 100% wet with the linear phase EQ. There should be a 2-3 second delay in playback, which should let you know that it worked. I also have a -6.0 db...

    Audeze LCD-2C Classic - Impressions Thread

    For anyone that doesn't like the comfort (clamping force) or sound quality upon getting it, give it some time. The earpads get broken in and you will notice less suction effect. The headband will also clamp less over time. You can also stretch it out if needed. I remember it being very hard in...

    Anyone have the LCD-2C on the Room headphone stand? I'd like to see pictures and whether the whole headband (depth) fits on the stand.

    This is how I had it on my Emotiva Mini-x: http://img.canuckaudiomart.com/uploads/0/649110720_thumb_49c7677415f12cd90f9c5649c20f3453.jpg

    The safest way to go on all amps (single or balanced) is to use a balanced cable (4 pin) for the headphone itself. Get a separate 4 pin XLR female to banana plugs adapter. This way you don't have to worry.

    Not really. Plenty of info here on head-fi on speaker amp with planars, especially with HE-6. I've plugged HE-500, LCD-2, and LCD-3 on a few speaker amps. They sound less confused on speaker amps and always in control. Back then, it used be the O2 as the recommendation. Currently, I think it's...

    Audeze LCD-2C Classic - Impressions Thread

    Today, I decided to bring up the Marantz PM6004 from another rig to try with the LCD-2C and A/B ing it with the Dangerous Source's built in headphone amp. I didn't use the speaker taps as I don't have the adapter anymore. I used the headphone jack which is worse than the speaker output but still...

    The old Emotiva Mini-x paired quite well with the LCD-2 off the speaker taps.

    Well put regarding the comfort and how the pleather headband suspension responds to the metal headband on top. I've been playing around with it to get it more comfortable. It's a shame since these get a lot right sound wise. Decisions, decisions.

    If my decision to keep or sell gear was based on only a few hours of listening, I'd have regretted many things, especially the LCD-2s. Among all my headphones, I was the least excited about LCD-2 during the first listen when I first got them. I'd recommend trying to listen exclusively to a...

    I took the Audeze off and put the KRK on. Immediately noticeable is the difference in weight. Sounded similar in the mids but leaner. The bass is also nowhere near Audeze by all objective and subjective standards. The upper mids and treble had more presence. The soundstage shrunk and everything...

    For a change from Roon, EQ, and lossless music, I went to Spotify (320) and just started listening stock (without any EQ) through my playlists which consist of recording quality that can vary quite a bit. Everything sounds so great. The stock sound is creamy magic. After awhile, you'll forget...

    Since I was robbed by my family members in the first hour, I cannot tell if the sound changed during that period, but they've sounded consistent since then. Nobody else mentioned burn-in either, and rightly so. This is a good thing. The next thing to focus on is the seal and positioning and...

    Hi, I think it should be the same. I am running 10.8 on my older iMac, so I haven't compared. I will eventually get in on my newer Macbook Pro when I need it. The linear phase on Roon gives a 3 second delay. By stock, it's set to minimum.

    Okay, I finally got them. Measured everything. Will have the pics up soon. Weight is 540g. I setup a platter and calibrated to make sure nothing is falling off. Now on to listening.
