I actually owned both of these as well and pretty much agree with you spot on. I know people like the HD800 because it's so analytical and spacious but the treble was pretty irritating to my ears and the midrange seemed too withdrawn. Also found the LCD-2 too dark and closed in.
If you're ever around a meet, try to give a listen to the HE-500 from hifiman. I used to own a K701 and HD650 duo and enjoyed the ying/yang on the pair. I think the HE-500 sits right between those two in terms of tonality. I'd easily pick it over the LCD-2 or HD800. Actually, I did end up picking it out of the flagships (HD800, HE-6, HE-5LE, LCD-2, T1).
Wow, at least there are two of us, now! I have had exactly the same experiences with the HD800s.
I'll keep what I have for now. HE-500s are a bit uncomfy for me and I already have two headphones with different sound signatures, both of which i like, depending on the music. I'm at a resting point as far as cans are concerned
