Sorry for the further derail here, but...
I've listened to the Thunderpants, and I have to say I like mine more, better balanced highs, not quite so forward mids. And the LCD-2s, well, to me they're one of the most overrated headphones in the hobby, but then cans that dark typically aren't my thing. I can pick out micro-detail, not just in the treble, more easily with my T50s than I can with a friend's LCD-2s, and I tired many amp/DAC combos. There really isn't a comparison there. People just like different things, and I just don't care for the sound signature of Audeze's gear.
You've got the gamut of electrostats and teslas so I suppose I can't argue that xD...I guess it really is to everyone his/her own. I wouldn't call the LCD-2 overrated though. The Ultrasone line-up? Now THAT'S overrated :).
