Frequency Response Measurement & Correction
The LCD-5 is a fast, but bright sounding headphone. The headphone starts to deviate from neutral starting at 400 Hz and rises to a +6 dB peak at 4 kHz. The bass starts to roll off at 90 Hz and is -4 dB down at 20 Hz.
Engaging the high-resolution convolution filter can be characterized as a “night and day” difference. The increased low bass gives added weight to the sound and the taming of the +2 dB 1 to 1.5 kHz peak helps. But the huge difference is in the upper midrange. Going from really bright to, wow, these now sound clear and full!
