Heya,

 

Cool. Maybe some 2's will hit the market place at lower prices as people upgrade to the 3's. tongue_smile.gif

 

Very best,

I hate my life.  I wonder if the drivers are even different, I mean how many times per year can one revise them?

"top tier, luxury headphone"

 

Not sure how they'll manage luxury with that. It looks like the LCD-2 with different wood. You know people are going to complain about the comfort.

This thread might turn out to be very interesting.

I wonder if the differences will be so large. They do seem to have a fresh look, if it means anyhting.

Yeah, the chiropractor-requiring LCD2s are by no means light.  If they gave it a magnesium frame and figured out some other ways for weight loss, then maybe it would warrant a much higher price.  But I feel fairly cheated having just bought rev 2's.

I think the major part of the weight is caused by the large amount of magnets they have to put in.

Neodymium magnets have a fixed weight. They could try getting other magnets, but I doubt that would do much good to the strength of the magnetic field.

You're not alone. I like the darker wood of the LCD-2 more. I also prefer the wood cable connector tabs on the LCD-2 to the metal ones in that image, but the metal ones would be less susceptible to imperfections.

 

They probably should have went for a different look. This just looks like an LCD-2 with yet another driver, but this time a heftier price tag.

That would be cool if they did a chrome version, or some type of carbon fiber (with copper grills beerchug.gif) pair of headphones.

Interesting!  Almost looks like zebrawood.

 

I would have to agree that the triangle looking metal mini-xlr housings don't quite fit with the overall flow of the design, imo. 

 

I wonder what changes they made to the driver this time.

I don't see why they don't use carbon fiber.  It can be like a porsche situation - charge more for less.  Exotic woods are often more expensive than a carbon fiber shell, and carbon fiber is actually quite good in terms of its audio quality, most charts I have seen say it is better than wood in fact.

 

I've actually been debating making my own headphones (they would be a gimbal :( ) and using carbon fiber - cheaper and looks awesome.

Yeah, the metal triangles look out of place.  They are probably more for durability.  But they could have given them a more organic look.  I'll still buy them if they're good, I guess.
