    Yo, just got the LCD2c. Applied your EQ and I'm loving them. Thank you. These respond really well to EQ.

    Something else the LCD2c responds to is the LYR3. Damn these sound better then ever with this amp and the tube I’m running them with. This is coming from the MJ2/Gumby combo which is no slouch in its own right.

    You should really @metal571 EQ. There's an obvious peak @6K. They also benefit from a huge boost @8K. So far the only thing bothering a bit is the weight and the vaccum pressure, but for an Audeze they're very comfy. I heard the LCD-X once and I didin't like mainly because of the lack of comfort.

    Is LYR3 hybrid? I have the Fostex HPV-1, haven't tried them yet, I think EQ makes the most difference...
  5. koover
    Yes it’s a hybrid. Other then maybe the Valhalla 2, the LYR3 probably offers the most “Tubey” sound compared to most of their other amps.

    Where can I find those EQ settings?

    I agree about the vacuum pressure, I do not like that. I'm assuming the Dekoni pads will help with that. I also decided to remove the pleather headband and drilled some new holes to pull the headband down. It's much more comfortable now and the metal headband has a larger gap between the pleather now, and doesn't contact the top of my head.

    LCD-2C EqualizerAPO EQ Preset (Updated 1/30/2019, now partially Reveal-based):

    Channel: all Preamp: -3 dB Filter 5: ON LS Fc 100 Hz Gain 3 dB
    Filter 6: ON PK Fc 1000 Hz Gain -3 dB Q 1.41
    Filter 8: ON PK Fc 4000 Hz Gain 3 dB Q 2
    Filter 9: ON PK Fc 6000 Hz Gain -7 dB Q 2
    Filter 10: ON PK Fc 8000 Hz Gain 6 dB Q 2
    Filter 12: ON PK Fc 10500 Hz Gain -2.5 dB Q 3

    These are the EQ settings For the Peace/APO equilizer. I didn't post the youtube link, since I don't know if it is allowed. Just search "metal571 Audeze LCD2C".
    If you're using Foobar2000, hit me up and I'll tell you how to use Audeze's own EQ settings called "Reveal". These setting are also based on that,
    but I found the Audeze's own "Reveal" is a bit flatter and more natural sounding.
    As for vaccum pressure, I don't think changing the pads might help much, even if they do, the SQ gonna take a big hit.

    I'm just using the standard 30-band EQ in Foobar. Looking at the changes above I can probably get close to reproducing it manually.

    Actually it's quite different from your conventional EQ. Those setting are also used to set the filter type and filter quality. You can't do these with the graphic EQ. Just watch this vid here and you get what I mean:

  10. metal571
    Yeah that LCD2C setting is specific for my serial number and is heavily influenced by the Audeze Reveal preset for the LCD2C but modified to match my preference better. I don't think some of the filters used to create the Reveal preset made a whole lot of sense so I've adjusted it a bit.

    I also noticed that with the Reveal EQ "untouched" they sound a bit flatter. So I understand that those setting are specific only to your own unit, but still with your EQ, the sound is "more engaging" than the flat sound that the "untouched" version of Reveal offers. Suffice to say, without any EQ I prefer my HD660s to these.

    Lol six Db drop at the 8k?! Wow.

    I've seen some EQ with as much as ten db at 4100 region. In fairness I definitely hear a drop in the 4k region. Once you turn that up cymbals, snaps / claps become alive.

    But it pushes the female vocals from ten and 2 to almost as forward as hd 650.

    Ps. Love your channel metal.

    Your review and valours are why I got this headphone.

    Z said it was the best sounding lcd and I thought.. Hmm maybe he hit his head
  13. metal571
    lol definitely not the best LCD, LCD4 is miles ahead of it, amazingly. And yeah 4k is almost always the commonly recessed area, it sounds much better pushed forward there and yeah the 650 with a couple dB less at 3.5k is my midrange reference so that's why that reminds you of it

    Great lcd 1 review metal. Why you making me spend muh money! Lmao

    I seriously had no expectations here, but considering I liked the Mobius already a lot, there was a ton more capability to be tapped yet from a Mobius-like platform but open back. Pretty smart move and it sounds awesome, I swear.
