What is it about how they do business that's turned you away?

There's also something weirdly off-putting about the sound but I can't quite put a finger on what it is yet....

I just found the sound disengaging in the long run.

Right, and I find that there is something weirdly off-putting in the T1 and HD800.  I know exactly what it is.  So you pick the headphone that is less off putting to you.

They're all good puddings.  Hey, if I had the finances, I'd have all the puddings, but poor old me has to pick only one.  I wish I could have the staging of the HD800, the bass of the T1 and the mids of the LCD2.  I can only afford mids at this stage.  biggrin.gif

I guess I must really like pudding?

Ya, but three cans of it?

Dude, share the wealth. I've got some rum, if we can round up some cake and whipped cream it's trifle for all.

LCD-2 rev 1 just arrived. Compared to the rev.2, they are creamy indeed :) I will post more detailed impressions after exams, but I am definitely enjoying these headphones. Moreso than the rev.2? I'd say equal after 1 hour 

post #161 of 6615

That was my initial impression when I already had the rev1 and then received the rev2.  After some burn-in I ended up preferring rev2 and sold the rev1.  Ideally I would have kept both for their distinctiveness but I'm at the phase in which I like to just have one good headphone.  Down the road maybe I'll do a bit more exploring with multiple headphones.

Just got my LCD2rev2 repair back yesterday from what I believe was a failed driver.  Exactly three weeks from being shipped out on their free FedEx ground shipping and back again.  Three weeks was a long time CanJam show or not and communication was poor to bad. I asked what was wrong with them and what they found with the repair.  No response.  Just got the phones shipped back after I called last Friday and asked what the heck was going on?  They said they'd probably get finished soon and twenty minutes after I hung up I was emailed a FedEx notice that they'd shipped.  It felt like they were done and someone forgot about them and boom sent out.  Great headphones, not great customer service.

 

I have the old and new graph and they are different.  At 20K on the returned one's they stay above 6 and on the originals it dips below 6 at 20K.  Playing them right out of the box didn't sound as good as the others so I've been playing them non stop for some break-in and they are improving.

 

I did ask if it was possible to have the LC-3 drivers put in since they were at the shop and told that would be "impossible".  So anyone thinking the same can dismiss that thought!

The LCD2 rev2's I just got back were only six weeks old when this happened.

"Impossible" and true. OR "impossible"  and not true just because Audeze does not want to do. That does not mean it cannot be done. That is the question!
