Do these straps change the overall weight you feel on your neck after a few hours of use? (My best headphones are m50x, so I wouldn't know. But i've read many people complain about that.)

I don't have much to say on comfort besides after 6+ hours of listening sometimes my ears will feel a little warm w/ the leather pads, no other real issues. They do feel kind of heavy but I have gotten used to it rather quickly; but back on the topic of the actual sound, I do notice that deeper male vocals are a bit harder for me to understand as they seem to get kinda lost in the mix with music. I assume this is something my ears will adjust to (along with the treble, RIP ears)

The actual weight doesn't change but because the weight is more evenly distributed its make them feel a little lighter.  the M50x is about 1/3 the weight so you usually don't notice the weight of the headphones as much and there is more padding on the m50x than the LCD headband.

 

if you are like me and listen in a recliner which supports part of the weight then I usually don't feel the weight on my neck but if sitting up then the weight will be noticeable to me after an hour or two.

Yes...my LCDs arrived on Wednesday, but my Deckard order was delayed by the Riskified Verification (which was pending for nearly a week). Today, my order was processed and the order status was updated to "Order Complete - - Ready to Ship."

 

Customer service was very good at keeping me in the loop while the verification was processing.

I look forward to receiving the Deckard on Tuesday or Wednesday next week:)

What the heck is this "riskified" crap? Ive never heard of such. All I know is I sent $900 for amp and phones and my order still says Payment Received since the 24th amd I do consider myself a fairly patient person. I juat dont understand this riskified business...

Right, that's what I meant by "Feel". But that makes sense. I guess the weight is less of a problem if you're not in pain lol. My m50x are fairly light, but the padding is absolute rubbish. I've never felt such constant pain from headphones. But this fix for the LCD-2 is really making me consider getting some. 

 

Unfortunately my paycheck came late, and I missed the B-stock sale by less than a day. Maybe someone will receive them and not like them, and I could "reimburse" their purchase :P

No.

Just I re-ignited my headphone listening with the HD650s and managed to convince myself nothing was better than this headphone... Because I found them in a plastic bag and had no idea where I stored away the R1s.

But they are the ancient R1s with an altogether different headband that is no longer available.

If you had no problems in 5 minutes, they should be OK. The only time these have stayed on my head for a few hours is when I doze off. I don't think I could consciously leave any headphone on my head for many hours at a time...

Any more impressions on the low-end of the very latest Fazor LCD-2 ? Is it a flat-liner sub to mids matching the 2.1/2.2c ?

 

Am looking at LCD-2 new, XC used and iSine if they launch soon...
