    Audeze LCD-2C Classic - Impressions Thread

    I've seen some good things about swapping to Vegan/Velour pads, but it changes the frequency response a bit.

    Help Me Decide Next Upgrade

    Hi all, Recently decided to sell a bunch of my entry headphones to try to move a bit more into mid-fi, I'm coming from the AKG K7XX, HE400i, and TH-X00. I like the TH-X00 but the sound was never quite full enough for me, I think I just really like the way planars present music. I had been...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    FWIW, Modi Multibit and Magni 2U is the pairing I've used with the HE400i and like it quite a bit. If you value portability and/or low end I would probably go with the iFi Mico iDSD BL. If you want a desktop setup from which you can upgrade your individual components from in the future I would...

    I use it on my work machine, volume is disabled for me (set to max, unchangeable).  I use the Magni 2U to manage the volume.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    HM5 Flat Sheepskins are excellent with the THX00, subjectively much better than the HM5 Flat Hybrid pads I was using prior.

    Using this test and a bass frequency test album on Spotify I can say that I hear down to 15hz, but 15hz-20hz sounds rolled off in comparison 25hz-30hz.

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    I've been using the HM5 Angled Velour pads on these for a couple of weeks while I used the HM5 Flat Hybrids with the THX00.  Just ordered a pair of HM5 Flat Sheepskins to go on the THX00 and switched the Flat Hybrids back onto my HE400i and gotta say, these are the pads for me.  Bass (sub and...

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    They were selling for $249 around Black Friday/Christmas on Amazon and a few other sites, the prices changed back to normal in January but you can still find them for $229-$249 some places.

    For me, a little sub-bass boost of 2-3 dBs is perfect.  Then drop the mids just a touch and give it a little extra power.  Swapping pads helped me as well.   Ahhh.... such great listening.

      I went from a Modi to a Modi Multibit to pair with my Magni 2 Uber, and have been quite happy, but haven't really tried to A/B the DACs at all.

    *Official Schiit Magni/Modi 2 ( Uber ) Thread*

    For me, it's more about being familiar with the source material and being able to differentiate between the minutiae of the presentation within the gear, rather than about speed of switching between set ups to hear the differences.

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

      I wouldn't describe it as uncontrolled, it's just a lot less precise in comparison to the HE400i, on the verge of being out of control but never quite losing it's grasp.   If the HE400i is a surgical scalpel in the low end, the THX00 is like a chefs knife.  You can still make cuts, but a...

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

      I wouldn't describe it as a slam, and I don't think it moves paper.  However, the clarity, accuracy, detail, and fullness of the sound make the low end just incredibly pleasurable to me.  It's just sooo... gorgeous, I really have a hard time describing it.  It's like the extreme opposite of...

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    I love this album and have been using it to compare the HE400i to the THX00.   Absolutely phenomenal in lossless.

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

      I'm considering looking for some other ear cups for the THX00.  I wonder if those are the only tuning differences? The density of the cup wood?   I saw Lawton has TH900 cups on their website but are currently out of stock.

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

      Nice choice! I ended up going for a Mahogany as they are fairly common, and figure I can always EQ a little bass back in if I feel it needs it.

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

      I thought this a bit as well at first, I'm not sure if it's the smaller soundstage than my K7XX or what, but after the brain burn in period, I really like the sound a lot (though it's not very accurate at all for gaming in my experience).

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    I have a Modi 2 (usb powered) and a Magni 2 Uber and found this to be the case- I need to tone down the treble a bit for my ears.  It's not unlistenable but with a slight treble drop (and for my tastes, a slight bass boost) it's outstanding.    My Modi Multibit is on the way currently.  I'm...

      I had to order a pair of these for the rings: http://store.hifiman.com/index.php/accessories/velour-earpads.html   I contacted hi-fi man support and they informed me that the rings alone could be had, but for the same price, so there's really no point.   Edit: Just noticed they are out of...

    The Hardest hitting Headphones are.. ( "The EXTREME BASS Club")

    Is the SZ2000 worth the extra money over the SZ1000?  The other option would be waiting a bit for a used TH600 or THX00.   I have a Magni2Uber to make 'em slam (should be plenty of power), just not sure which set I want. :)
