The $995 Audeze LCD2 headphones, the author's choice for his first listen to My Bloody Valentine's long-awaited third album.

As for my initial mbv listening session, I went with the uncolored, evocative imaging of the $995 Audeze LCD2 headphones. Almost as soon as I hit play, I found myself chatting online with similarly inclined friends, sharing our experience and delving into the rich headroom and dynamics of the new recording. I may never again experience a My Bloody Valentine album for the first time, but every listen can reveal something new. When I was younger I bought more albums; now, I buy more sound. This beast, no matter how well-fed, will always be hungry.

I'm not obsessive about my own playback equipment, but I never compress anything or rip lossy files. If I ever release anything I reckon I'd have to make that one of the options available. Hard drives are cheap.

@Dino Gambina If someone heard more gear or My Bloody Valentine? Both can definitely make an argument for macro detail and depth of focus ... but also the possible irony of layering more and more gear to find a field of pure bliss.
