So since I bought the T1 I've been reading a lot of threads on high end gear and it seems to me that the LCD2s are by far the most popular high end headphone. You only have to look at the 17000 post thread here to see what I'm talking about. In contrast, the T1 thread hasn't reached 2000 posts and some of the other high end cans don't even have one.
I've never heard the LCD2s so I can't comment on how they sound, but they don't look like a headphone that would be really popular. They're unconventional and don't look at all comfortable to wear - IMO they definitely have the image of a niche product. The aesthetic certainly played a big part in my decision to choose the T1s. 80% of posts here seem to say they are amazing cans and the best they've ever heard. I definitely would like to audition a pair one day just to see what the fuss is about.
Please enlighten me with your thoughts on this people.
