Tyll at Innerfidelity is supposed to have the full subjective and objective answer up soon on his site... but I personally went through and examined darn near every personalized FR graph posted, and starting after the change, there seems to be more dependable high treble air (10-20kHz), and a bass dip of about 3 dB at 40 hZ, and not as much of the incredible linearity from extreme lows all the way through to 1 or more kHz. On the positive subjective side, there is reported increased soundstage/imaging noted as 'holographic,' and perhaps an increase in detail. FWIW, I've put off my purchase until more reviews comparing the Fazor to non-Fazor are out.

While i haven't heard the pre-fazor lcd-2, the fazor equipped pair i have is quite holographic. Considerably more than my he-500. Imaging is on par with my hd-700, which is already exceptional in that regard, although hd700 has larger soundstage.

Anyone compared the lcd2.2 to the jh13 freqphase? I find them very very similar, more similar than my he-500s or hd700. I was suprised to find this, because i expected the jh13's to be more bright, but the treble response in particular seems to be very similar, as it is clear as a bell but not at all harsh or sibilant.

I found the LCD 2.2 to be darker than the HE500 during my quick comparison - 

 

How do they compare now, with the fazor technology in place?

lcd2's are darker, but not much. It's really just the he-500's 9-10khz spike that makes them sound brighter, in combination with their more airy and spacious presentation. For most music i find the lcd-2 treble more enjoyable and realistic. It doesn't lack any detain despite the slightly darker treble, imo.

God damn it.

When I go back to my O2 from Beta 22, it sounds bloated and sounds distorted.  I guess the Beta 22 has more control over the sound.  Beta 22 is not very forward sounding I've noticed, kinda laid back.  The vocals are not as forward as the O2, but definitely much tighter sounding and clearer.  I have the LCD 2.2

I find that HE-500 and LCD-2 are pretty comparable with HE-500 sounding a bit brighter. Otherwise in my collection I could interchange them freely. I like the leather pads and mini-XLR terminals on the 2's however.

 

 

I've been off Head-Fi for a couple weeks, but is the Fazor something worth buying into or is it just another subtle change they've made with the LCD-2? 

 

I say this because I am guilty of buying a new set of LCD-2 because I thought it was different when all they did was introduce bamboo and angled connectors lol.
