    So, yesterday was a weird day. I woke up in the morning expecting to just go to work and go through the daily grind. however i was pleasantly surprised.
    While at work, i met a new friend whos friends with a co-worker of mine. the guy is an elderly man, (salt pepper hair) and smokes a lot.
    we were talking about audio, he mentioned that he was a big fan of orthodynamic headphones. i mentioned audeze and he laughed as he tapped his cig. he then said "i've got the entire audeze range at home"... speachless i let out a "wow" (yes much like owen wilson). after work he invited me and my friend over to his apartment and lo and behold he had almost every audeze over ear headphone. i quickly put my microSD card with my music into his sound system that had an audeze deckard and quickly put the headphones on. heres what i got from my impressions.

    I enjoyed the LCD2C the most from the entire range, closely followed by the LCD-X (with the new LCD2C headband).
    the LCD-3 were too heavy and i didnt like the sound as much as the 2C or X.
    the LCD-4 were heavy also, and sounded way too bright even for me and im a DT1990 Pro fan.

    from my conclusion i felt that the LCD2C is the best bang for buck from audeze and had the most relaxed sound(in a good way) that was easy to mellow out to. i was super lucky to be able to compare the headphones for a good long time (the visit was around 5ish hours)

    Audeze is starting to grow on me and i'll be placing my order for an Audeze LCD2C very soon after i receive my order from RME for the ADI-2 DAC.

    PS: he didnt have all the close back variants, he only had the closed back LCD-XC which were quite heavy and didnt sound as good as the open LCD-X.

    I also have the DT1990 and just placed my order for the 2C’s. What were you impressions when comparing the LCD-2C to your 1990s?

    I didnt have my DT1990 Pros at his place because we left after work, however i use my DT1990 pros almost every day and i can tell you this.

    DT1990 Pro: clean sound, crisp, punchy tone across the range, low end, mid, highs. slightly peaky at highs depending when you listen to, revealing headphones if the recording is bad and scales really well with amps.
    LCD2C: smooth warm sound, clean smooth with a great punchy low end that doesnt bleed into the mids. mids are at an enjoyable level to the point where its never too close, but not too far away. highs are a great amount, enough for most people imo.

    I've been looking at getting the Schiit Loki to use with my Magni3 and Mimby. Really the only thing I like to bump within the frequency range is the bass, going up a few dBs would make them sound ideal to me. I know it wouldn't stop there though as I'd start experimenting with changing the mids and highs. My B-day is coming up in a few months so I think I'll give the Loki to myself as a gift seeing as I'm pretty much broke after Xmas gifts.

    I think you'll like it. Loki has been worthwhile investment for me, and I'm probably going to get a few more of them.

    Found a nice electronic track for the lcd2c.

    Thank you! I don't have much of 24bit music, doubt that it matters for electro type of music, but hey it won't harm. Is it weird that I still use winamp? :D

    For some reason I got an email from Audeze today about a sale. These headphones are back to $599.00 until December 31st.

    As an FYI, the LCD-3 are on for $1,199.00.

    I already ordered some HD 6xx's as a Xmas present to myself.. but now I also have the 2c on the way due to that sale.
    I shouldn't be allowed to use my cards late at night! Couldn't resist, stoked to have my first Audeze.
