Not conclusively.

Rev.1 has foam headband, Audeze printed on the metal grill.

Rev.2 version 1 is Rosewood, has leather handband and doesn't have plastic angled connectors.

Rev.2 version 2 is Bamboo, which is what you have, can come in dark or light shades in colour but the drivers between all rev.2's are all the same, the reason they used a different material for the housing is because the Rosewood versions are prone to cracking near the headphone jack area (although not all have this problem, just inconsistencies through the batches).

Just to clarify. There have been confirmed instances of Rev 2 serials with Rev 1 drivers.

And Rev 1 serials with Rev 2 drivers.

So the only conclusive way to know which you have is to check with Audeze.

From David Mahler's "Battle of the Flagships" mega-review, here's what he wrote about Audeze serial numbers:

Am I correct to assume the cases you're referencing are where the headphones drivers don't match the headband or grills?

It would seem so. What I was trying to emphasis was even though there are differentials

from Rev 1 to Rev 2 to tell them apart and even w/included data sheet, (they do get lost)

there have been quite a few "ignorant" "false" listings in the F/S forum.

So it was a word of caution. 

 

If you want to know for sure, contact Audeze.

Rev.2 version 2 is Bamboo, which is what you have, can come in dark or light shades in colour but the drivers between all rev.2's are all the same, the reason they used a different material for the housing is because the Rosewood versions are prone to cracking near the headphone jack area (although not all have this problem, just inconsistencies through the batches).

Another clarification I can add would be that the Rev.2 "version 2" is more accurately described as the update with the black angled connectors.

 

This version can come in both Rosewood and Bamboo, though bamboo is the more common offering of the two in this version. The cracking of the wood in the previous versions were due to the design of the wood around the mini-xlr connection and not due to the type of wood. The benefits of the bamboo composite would be that it is a more renewable source than the rosewood, while also being slightly lighter.

 

Below is the announcement that Audeze sent out around the time of this change:

Pretty much what I said earlier in my post

Was there ever a Rosewood with black angled connectors?

You guys need to move this discussion to the LCD-2 thread I reckon. smile.gif

Well, here's a recent addition to my setup:



Got my Hifiman speaker adapter in today from ALO and hooked the HE-6 up in this chain:

Denon DVD-3910 --> Modwright SWL9.0se --> modified Dynaco ST-70 --> HE-6

The picture might be terrible, but the sound is absolutely wonderful!

I spy Decware.

I spy Decware as well!

I don't mean to be offensive but asking this question here is almost like asking this question to someone in New York City : "I'm looking for my cousin. His name is Michael. Do you know him?"
