    I actually have an Atticus on the way, so I will update this thread (if I remember to) with my impressions. But from what I read, the Atticus mid bass hits just as hard (if not harder) than the HP-3, but less sub bass extension and less detail on the high end.

    Compared the 2Cs soundstage to the 6XXs for a couple hours late last night trying to go in with no confirmation bias, I don't know what you're listening on that would make them sound "far" wider than the 6XXs @chef8489 but that's not my impression at all. They're pretty close, with the 2Cs slightly edging them out but the 6XXs sound a tad more airy. I reiterate, these headphones do not have a super wide soundstage at least on my source. That's pretty much the consensus too, including Tyll calling them "less spacious than average" & Grizzly saying he "[doesn't] think the Audeze LCD2C has the best soundstage out there by any stretch."

    It depends on the the type of bass those sub genres use. If they have stellar sub-bass then look no further. If they use more mid-bass then yes you'll lack that same slam that you get further down low. These are not bass cannon cans. They're about quality of bass rather than quantity.

    That is my impressions as well, but i bet the bass slam of hp3 is pretty different from the one in atticus. Would love to try them both. It isn't good with too much detail/extention in the treble for edm imo, as that will sometimes intensify sharp anoying details. This makes me turn down the volume, and removes focus from the impactful nature of the song,.

    My guess is that the Atticus impact around 80-120 hz is a bit more "thump" than the HP3 due to its fully closed back nature (not that the Hp3 lacks in that department...like I said I actually had to EQ down 80hz by about 2 db). Anything below 80hz the HP-3 will probably shred it.

    I have no idea how far away my Atticus is, but I'm definitely wanting to get them on so I can compare the bass. I've been told by many people that the HP3 are EDM kings, but I'm hoping the superior mids of the Atticus mean that they'll excel at Rock/Metal/Vocals. A lot of hiphop is nuts with the 20-40 hz sub bass so I am worried that Atticus may not play nice there.

    Luckily, one pair is for work and one is for home so I won't have to choose one to use mostly!

    I do not thing the lcd2c has the best soundstage out there by any streach. I just dont think it has the worst. I do think the hd650 and hd600 has one of the most claustrophobic soundstages there is in mid priced headphones. As i use different tubes with my lcd2c my soundstage widens especially with classical and acoustic blues and jazz.. With my hd650 this did not happen. Yes with other genres it is quite dependent on how it is recorded.

    I do have to say a narrower soundstage + darker sound signature increases the perception of the claustrophobia...

    I read one poster mentioned bass sounded boosted by pulling driver further from ears (breaking pads seal) which I agree and like it, bass sounded much better and deeper this way. This might be able to be replicated by changing thicker pads that give further distance between ears and drivers.
    What's your thought.

    Do they STILL not have a Reveal profile up for these?

    Reveal Profile has been updated some time ago.

    Hi I have an AR M2 as a reader and listen to thrash metal, better audeze lc2 or lcd2 classic for the kind of music I listen to?
    is my AR M2 reader alone enough to drive audeze?

    That was when the specs were just released on their website and they were incorrect. We now know the drivers are LCD-2’s 70 ohms.

    Anyone try the LCD2C with an IFi Micro iDSD Black label?
  14. willywill
    I have the original which is already a good pairing, if you don't mind the size
