No, same driver, but there is a lot of potential in the Fostex driver.I got a lot of very favorable reactions to my Thunderpants at Head-Fi meets.
While I haven't had a chance to compare directly to an LCD-2, I did to my LCD-XC which is a more apt comparison IMO as they are both closed. I felt my Thunderpants were more similar to my XCs than they were different - the XCs came out on top, but not by a huge margin, and certainly nowhere near as much as would be expected by their difference in price.
The AK120 II only puts out 240mw into the XC and Audeze recommends 1-4W for best sound. You would likely get more bang for the buck by adding a high powered amp like the iBasso PB2.
ZMFs look VERY nice - I will recommend them to others, thanks
Anyone heard their new amp yet? I auditioned a pre-production prototype and it was very promising.
I am assuming that if I want to remove the headband, all I have to do is remove the small set screw in the square blocks at the ends. Is that correct?
Per the update they now provide technical support, but what that entails is not clear.If they don't provide a perfboard (which I doubt they do) it would be a real chore to make it as you would have to etch your own boards.
Possibly lucky. Some orders (how many?) were never fulfilled.Alpha Dogs is probably the closest product on the market now.
Have never used one so can't make a personal recommendation.  There are many references here:http://www.head-fi.org/t/424038/high-quality-3-5mm-line-attenuator-pad-my-source-is-too-loud IMO the best solution is to roll your own. 4 resistors, a socket and a plug and you're done. Though some soldering experience is recommended.As to sound quality, there is as you can see tremendous debate. Can only decide for yourself. The nice thing about rolling your own is you can fully...
An easy fix for using IEMs with high powered amps with no sensitivity setting is to use a simple resistor L-PAD in series. Do that and you will never have hiss problems.
