Audeze LCD-2 with good gear better than LCD-3 with normal gear?

Discussion in 'Headphones (full-size)' started by sebab, Jun 1, 2014.

    I've been thinking if I should buy an Audeze LCD-2 + Moon-Audio Silver Dragon V3 Headphone cable + Moon-Audio Silver Dragon V3 USB-cable + Alo Audio Pan Am + Passport battery pack,
     
    Or an Audeze LCD-3 with just the stock cable + cheap USB-cable + Alo Audio Pan am without Passport battery pack.
     
    These cost about the same amount of money so I would really appreciate it if someone told me which set would sound better.
     
    Thank you!

    And does the Silver Cables really make a big difference in terms of sound quality?

    to me its almost a no-brainer.
     
    this. Audeze LCD-3 with just the stock cable + cheap USB-cable + Alo Audio Pan am without Passport battery pack.
     
    im currently using lcd-2 rev.2, i have 4 diff cables inc. the stock. i THINK i can hear a difference BUT i also THINK i couldnt discern the diff in A/B tests. go figure.
    cables should be the last thing on your mind. Cans make the most difference in audio chain.

    I doubt the 2 will sound better than the 3, even on a relatively modest set up (but then I have little love for the 2 myself).

    Okay, so doesn't the LCD-2 and 3 both have quite a similar sound? What I've heard, the 3s should be like 20% better than the LCD-2s

    They're much, much better than the 2. Personally I'd say they're something like 70% better (perhaps I place more importance on that last 20%). You should get the 3, an expensive cable and interconnect and battery pack will still not put the 2 in the same league as the 3. Get the better transducer and then improve the chain.

    Okay, thank you very much for all your help :)
