    Time to time you come across these posts on different threads when some greenhorns* state they have reached 'end-game'.
    If you are in this hobby for a few years you know, end-game does not exist.

    What is end-game? a kgsshv-carbon with a Stax 009? Utopia with Liquid Gold? LCD4 with some insanely expensive SS amp?
    Even if you could afford all of these, is that end game? This game never ends.
    With our hearing we are blessed and cursed at the same time. We always want to experience something new that most other people are unable to really appreciate.
    After a while you don't want better just different. (Within the same realm of quality of course.)
    Therefore it is important to choose your gear according to your wallet and taste, and trying to enjoy it as long as possible.
    The 2C is a fantastic value for money, it is a headphone that someone could enjoy for a long time.

    With every good pleasure. Variety is the spice of life :)

    I wonder what phones I'll buy next???
  5. betula
    They might not exist just yet. :wink: Looking at the phase of new headphones coming out we might find something better in a year or so even if we don't look.

    Patiently waiting for Wireless open back, with a charging dock. Meant for home use.

    IMO wireless technology still has a good few more years to catch up in sound quality. For portable use they are alright and getting there (best of Sony and Bose wireless). But for home use full sized open back design headphones with wires still brutally destroy any wireless cans. We still have a good few more years of technical development to come before we can ditch wires at home as well.

    We just gotta get Elon Musk to think up a pair of headphones instead of building flame throwers when he gets bored

    That is why I said "Patiently". I have an idea how far we are, and there are some good standouts, like Mobius? But it is not there yet. However other peripherals like my mouse Logitech G603. On par performance with any wired mouse and lasts 11 months on simple batteries. So we are getting there.
    Also I do have an end game and that is my speakers.

    Haha.. He is busy with getting high on live radio and more interested in launching cars to space instead of developing the headphones of the future. :wink:

    I'm liking the LCD-2C more and more. Listening to some Emerson Lake and Palmer right now. These phones really do a great variety of music well to my tastes. I can't say I've found anything that does not sound good with them, even classical-ish music like Hans Zimmer's Time sounds awesome on these
  12. betula
    Agreed. They are really good. For the price they are a killer. :wink:
    Unless you can afford to collect TOTL headphones these might be 'long-term end game headphones.'
    If you really like their sound presentation you are better off investing in higher quality DACs and amps instead of even more expensive headphones.

    I agree. I'm looking for a high quality delta sigma balanced dac, but am not sure if what I want. I think I'll probably go with something from benchmark, and also possibility get their new head amp if i really like the massdrop one

    I am curious as well how the Lcd2c compair to the Mobius. I currently have them pre-ordered and was thinking about cancelling it to purchase the Lcd2c. I do a bit of gaming and a small amount of music, but idk if the 3D alone is worth it, not sure how often I would use it with 1 monitor. I currently have the hd58x, hd6xx, dt770, dt1990 I was thinking of selling a couple to buy the Lcd2c.

    Wellp, I have been playing with the loki + LCD2C and it's kind of mixed bag, depending on what you are listening to. +6 DB seems like a reasonable amount to keep on at all time anything more than that and it only works for very specific cases. All the other frequencies seem to be a bit too broad and off for anything to add to the LCD2C.
    I found it amusing how I was watching and older show and adding the whole +12 DB made it more energetic, like it had a fake Dynamic range. :D I was thinking it is not far stretched. You got a lot of bass, you got mids in well the middle and you got highs that fall down a bit. For recordings that pretty much plays the same volume across the board, it might add some extra fun to be had.
    In any case +6 DB is just enough to bring out the low end. May not be enough for a basshead like me, but can't do any more with the loki drags too far off into the mids. But Yeah +6 is good enough to make Nara sounds like it should, otherwise it sounds a bit flat.

    Incidentally I found out that Ningen isu sound really good on the LCD2C.

    And while casually surfing the interwebs I found out that Plantronics has finally updated their "Sport" range of headphones/Earbuds and now I can finally upgrade my original Backbeat fit to their newer ones that don't have the band that goes across the back the Backbeat fit 3100. Apparently they haven't done much to the sound judging by the reviews and that is good, I like the way they sound. Far too underrated earbuds. What is more the original went down only to 50Hz, the new ones go all the way 20Hz, there were few songs that did lack in that last bit of a stretch.
