No, thank us after you've heard them ;)

The LCD's are delicious with anything. Especially jazz...

I think it would be really stupid to buy 1k headphones while i have no knowledge in audio equipment or sound signatures. It could happen in the long way though.

It is good to acquaint yourself with entry level and mid-fi gear in order to give you an idea of what sound signature you prefer. Having had that experience you'd have a better point of reference for appreciating the LCD's.

Haha, of course, always good to find your own way. At a certain point it becomes more about taste than quality IMO

If anything, I would rather suggest getting the HE-500 over the LCD-2 for you. Especially used, they go for around $500-$600, half the price of Audeze with taxes, shipping and customs (depending on where you live) - Hifiman's are more lenient. 

 

HE-500 work well with everything. If you have the money for them, I would highly suggest getting these. Seriously, why start at the bottom when you could be over here?wink.gif

 

HE-500 are the one headphone that most people, including me, will like and get used to at the first instant. LCD-2 were a learning process for me. HE-500 out of the box (with some burn-in) will blow your mind away if you haven't heard a high end or even a mid entry level phone before.

 

Save money and time and get these. I understand trying bit by bit and figuring out your preference along the way and would recommend it as well, given that the HE-500 didn't exist. Regardless of the genre you listen to, these will suffice. You'll thank me later and so will your wallet in the long term.

I actually really loved the design of the he 500 and it really tempted me.

 

I am at college with no job though. So had i bought them, i would be more spoiled than the beats brats.

I'm at uni too. I had to save up for them as well. Plus having a good start saves a lot of time in searching forums constantly for better options. HE-500 will keep you busy for quite some time. Try to find jobs on campus or something - just advice for fellow student.smile_phones.gif

Message I got from Audeze:

 

Hello David,
I am uncertain of what would happen to the leather if the oil was applied to it. The leather care conditioner is a cream where as for the wood, its an oil. I would not recommend using the wood care oil on the leather.

Thank you very much,
Audez'e Support

 

 

 

 

Would think twice before using the oil on the pads.

Who would be foolish enough to do that anyway?

There were two specific issues, and both have since been addressed:

 

1) There was a batch of bad drivers. This (at least partially) prompted the second version of the driver.

2) The wood around the connectors would occasionally crack, which is one of the reasons they switched to the angled black metal ones.
