As LCD-2 Bamboo owner, will give your comment the consideration it is due.

hm, yeah, that segregation thing, there may be some legal issues with that

 

let's just stick the rosewood into the summit-fi subforum

 

while for the bamboo and not to be forgotten the leather-free faux suede material pads, for them i've envisioned something like the environmentally-sustainable-eco-vegan-fi subforum

Fewer people will be willing to buy LCD2s now and go for HE500 instead.

Excellent suggestion. I'd also put forth that a new Ghetto-Fi sub-forum be created to contain the uncouth masses.

are the lcd2 and he500 really competing? the he500 lunch price had to be lowered, while audeze felt confident to rise the lcd2 price

 

a move from audeze to make room for a lower-end model,

 

or they may be trying to impose themselves as the only and true summit-fi ortho brand

 

hence avoiding any direct competition and comparison

 

cos lets face it i never consider or even thought about getting a he500 instead of a lcd2, i think that's how the majority of lcd2 owners and potential buyers felt/feel too

Smart people would audition both HE500 and LCD2 before they take the plunge anyway, so the assumption of "tier-setting" with these price adjustments is irrelevant.

u don't get it do you?

 

a higher price tag have it's own effect, it makes u believe, and preferences are subjective, u have to believe that one can is "better" for you than the other
 

and the manufacturer must believe it too

 

however audeze is probably charging the facts more than the make believe, cos, it's made in usa, from expensive materials, parts, tech developing, labour, etc

 

or maybe not, who knows

 

maybe it's just the rosewood, but +$150, ouch!

 

maybe from 1000 to 1150 would be irrelevant but from 995 to 1000+, it's summit-fi relevant

This should be king then, expecting retail is $5k and is quite a looker.

what excites me about those is that audeze may be tempted to feel the gap, a $5k lcd, now that would sound terrific

post #4439 of 6615

but again to get serious

 

i didn't try the hifiman, but the fact that it's a lot cheaper, and by what i've read quite a performer too, makes me wonder, who is the tech leader in orthos, who will be making the move forward and who will be following

Just in case you didn't know, both HE500 and LCD2 threads used to be in summit-fi ever since the headphones were released.

 

Head-fi administrators explicitly migrated the threads to here a couple of months ago.

 

It has nothing to do with pricing.
