I was able to use it with the mixamp alone, though i would still recommend some amping to truly make this $1000 worth the purchase.

Positive Review

This is one area that it truly shares with the hd650.

Neutral Review

It certain improved in refinement when i used paired the mixamp up with my compass 2 which does 2 watts at 50ohm.

Neutral Review

Packaging/appearance


However, i feel the lcd-2 is quicker and more aggressive, so it doesn't sound laid back like the hd650.

Neutral Review

If you want even better bass response (in my opinion), the jvc ha-fx 850 in-ear phones can be had for about half the price, and...  Read More

    I am an engineer and not a writer so this will be brief.

    Build quality is top-notch, with only the (whatever you call the adjusting/connector things that couple the ear cups to the headband) being plastic.
