I covered the difference in sound couple of pages ago but more importantly it doesn't tangle like a mess like the stock one which was a big issue for me.
Definatly worth the price sonically and aesthetically.
On another note,I just sold my lcd2 r2. Yes it had a remarkable bass and were amazing with piano but that's it. It's a step down from jh13 in everything else especially imaging,resolution and soundstage. It didn't have depth or height,only width.not to mention its weight. I could never forget the headphone and just concentrate on the music like my jh13 or my previous headphones.
Next step.hd800 since I am critical to soundstage and want a headphone that does it exceptionally. If that doesn't cut it for me,then I'll save for stax.
