Welcome back! We almost lost you there LOL.
@betula, if you're interested, try swapping the pads into Dekoni velour. I did it last night...finally....after much reservation. The FR improved quite a bit. It becomes more balanced from top to bottom. But I still prefer the feel of the stock pads. It is prob my fav pads in terms of comfort. So thick and smooth.
I also see that you have been trying out lots of gears lately. Good for you! It is great for comparisons.
I had the same impression as well. I really liked the LCD-4, but not by a big margin from the 2C. It is not worth the extra price.LCD4 - very good sound. I obviously preferred this sound versus the LCD2C, but have to say, not by a huge margin.
Without EQ-ing the bass, there will always be something missing from the HD800(s). Wait till you try boosting that bass and add a tube amp to thicken that thin mid. It is my benchmark for summit-fi can.HD800S - it was actually a pleasant surprise, at least out of TT2/MScaler. A very 'hi-fi' kind of sound. Precise, spacious, well-balanced, transparent. I did miss a bit more energy in the bass and the treble sparkle was a bit too much for my personal taste.
I didn't try this one yet. I'm getting mixed impressions. People either love 'em or hate 'em. Not sure why. It sure looks great though. Prob one of the best looking can I have seen lately.Empyrean - the best headphones I have ever hear. (For me.) I simply can't find any fault in them. Ticks all the boxes, hits all the sweet spots. Easily beats LCD4 everywhere. Still not cheap though.
