You hate sibilance but you're still using the SA5000s?
I actually find the LCD-2 rev 2.2 and LCD-3 very comfortable now, I hardly notice them anymore, with the SA5000s or the HD800, I find them a bit too light and loose, they could come off my head easily if I move my head too much.
With my SA5000s after 10 minutes of listening its as if nothing is even on your head. With the audeze's, I knew they were on my head the whole time and it didn't feel great.
I absolutely see what everyone means by the lcd-3 is ruthless to the recording. There is no glossing over on the babies, if its on the record, its in your ear canal. Sibilance and all. And I HATE sibilance.
