    Matrix M-Stage amp review: simple, cheap, and excellent.

    Going from the 2xOPA627AU (jtam's website) to the 2xAD797ANZ, running both with the a-biasing mod here are my impressions :   -vocal sound less pronounced ---> midrange less forward (disapointing...) -accentuated separation between right and left channel (give me headache) -more details...

    Audeze LCD-2 Orthos

    HK_send and kwarth you had a discussion about the earpads applying more pressure by the front part. I have the r1 and have this problem (also i'm wearing glasses), so it's probably not specific to the r2...also did you manage to solve the problem HK_sends ? I didn't understand how you fixed...

    Quote: No, where did you see that ? The graphs are just statistics, it doesn't mean a 20 year old hear inevitably more high frequencies than a 60 year old. My point is, our ears have different sensibilty to high frequencies (and age can be one factor) so one person may see a headphone...
