I've got one of these and it made all the difference in the world. Very comfortable now. 
So I grabbed a Burson/Supreme Sound Lycan today with the SS5 OpAmp after only using my LCD2.1 through a Dynalo for the last while, these are like a whole new headphone. The bass response and weight has taken a huge leap forward and the overall sound is much more open. I've loved these 2.1s since the first time I heard them but I've been listening with the biggest grin on my face all evening. 
The big issue on not having the surround options on the line out is the ability to use the unit as a DAC attached to a separate amp. I'm sure that people with higher end cans would want to use their existing amp rather than the integrated amp in a gaming device. 
I've got the Rev 1's and they're still going strong. The wood cracked around the old connector design as many of them did but a little epoxy did the trick (doesn't look perfect but it's good enough). I'm at the point where I think these drivers should hold up for the long term and as long as they do, I'm sure these will be my main pair I love them that much. 
 I just picked up a strap mod thing from the BST forum here and my god it makes a difference. That and the vegan pads, these things float on my head now. 
I have the Rev 1 and don't find them bright at all. I've had and loved the HD650 and would say the LCD-2 does everything it did but better. That same silky midrange but more resolving, the same warm treble but with more extension, the same crisp bass but hits way deeper and way harder.The places where the 650 excels would be comfort and sound stage. The LCD-2 is heavy and as such doesn't disappear on your head the way the 650 does, I would strongly recommend the vegan...
I have a pre-fazor set and I agree they are the logical step from the HD650. I just swapped from the stock leather to the vegan pads and the comfort is greatly improved I've got one of the headband straps on order too. I noticed no negative change in the sound from swapping put the pads.
I got my vegan pads today and all I can say is "holy ****" these are now the headphones I've always wanted. They are so comfortable now, it's like they lost five pounds. If the sound changed at all, it maybe is a slight addition of some "air" but where it's impossible to A/B with the glue on system Audeze has going on, it may just be expectation bias.
I had the HD650 for a few years and got "the itch" and found myself craving the "energy" the HE400 was reported to possess. At first, I loved them and was so enamoured with the bass extension and general feel that I sold my HD650s, after a few years I found upgraditis kicking in again, but this time I found my thoughts wandering back to the silky intimacy of the HD650, I was starting to feel that the HE400 has no soul, and sounded artificial while the HD650 had more of a...
Just did this as well and it's perfect. Small Bi-flanges were too small and bass response was lacking. Large Bi-flanges sounded great but were heavy and hard too keep in place. Cut like this fit amazing and sound just as good as uncut, maybe better because it stays in place slightly better.
