With a solid build and quality driver, the Lasmex L-85 is truly a superb, open-back headphone with smooth metal and high-grade plastics, a satisfying headband clicker, and a single-sided 1/8" jack.
The catch is, pad-swapping is required for comfort. And unless you desire an extremely V-shaped sound - or listen to them on an iOS device with a headphone jack - EQ is also required.
For use with iOS devices, I recommend Brainwavz Micro Suede Oval Pads. (No EQ needed.) For use with the after-market pads and/or a DAC/amp of your choice, EQ will need to be engaged to remove the excessive bass and treble.
(A customized Equalizer APO profile will be added to this post.)
I am new to audiophile world and my preference is to have a headphone with decent bass and good sound stage. Can your recommended EQ for this headphone satisfy my needs? I am planning to use it with Sabaj da2/smsl idea. Can you suggest whether using the aforementioned amp increase SQ and soundstage even further? Thanks in advance.
Let me welcome you to Audiophilia. You probably won't simply arrive and stay in one place, so prepare yourself for a journey...
I haven't listened to the small, plug-and-play Sabaj DS2 or SMSL Idea. You'd have to read reviews that mentioned their relative SQ and how they present the sound-stage. If you're in the market for a lower-price DAC/amp, I recommend the bigger (but non-battery-draining) FiiO Q1 mkII, which will provide better sound quality than those Sabaj or SMSL units.
Keep in mind... If you decide to get a pair of Lasmex L-85s, you absolutely must be able to configure a detailed EQ profile. Check out my other posts.
