But I swear the r2 at the vendor show sounded different from the one at this smaller meet. I'll have to dig up my notes, but I think it was along the lines of "more treble in a certain spot past 10k than even HD800, disjointed, not cohesive, a bastardized blending of the LCD2 and HE6 without necessarily any of their better qualities, etc."
The r2 I heard at this meet had no such issues. It sounded less shelved down than the r1, a bit faster, had good bass integration, but the FR was still a bit rough in the treble. It wasn't bad. As for what accounts for the perceived differences? It could be batch variation, varying meet conditions, a cherry picked sample just for me, or just simply me talking out of my ass. Anaxilus can corroborate my story though - although it's possible I may have influenced him with my telepathic powers - but that's doubtful given his personality.
Someone I know at this recent meet who has disliked every LCD2 (r1 or r2) he had heard felt the r2 sounded pretty good - better than the LCD3 in some respects.
Coming away from this meet, I'm almost certain you would like the LCD3 and R10.
