The LCD2s are great, but a bit foggy and humid relative to the Ed 8s. Emphasis on "relative to the Ed 8s."
I think the Audezes do hold back or cover up some digital problems (glare and piercing highs and hardness) by blunting things a bit, but in a very refined and skillful way,
but the slight cover-up is there nonetheless. (I think Harbeth speakers do the same thing, as an SHL5 owner. I have the same issues with the SHL5s.)
But the Ultrasones deal nicely with these digital artifacts while retaining more resolution somehow, a neat trick that I respect (and am kind of awed by, actually).
Nice work Ultrasone.
