Yeah, let's get some more votes. :-)
BTW: I've changed my vote from the LCD 2-r1 to LCD2-r2 because they sound so much better!
The r2's were fairly inconsistent as well and from what I've read the newer line of r.2's sound different to the old Rosewoods as well.
You need some Stax. SR-007/9 I recommend :)
i like how the SR-007 look, as well as the 009. ive always been interested in stax, but if i ever buy one, i'd have to get the top ones cause the others don't look very comfortable or durable.
Since i listen to lossless and 24 bit music through a relatively high end set up, the HD800 are what i use of these choices. They don't hide anything upstream. If you want a don't want a headphone to reveal the weaknesses in your system, this is the last one to get of these choices.
The LCD's are very forgiving with source. They are also pretty good with nearly all genres as well mainstream music. The T1's right behind them. The HD800's although more on a upper plane level not so much as you need to feed them good stuff to get good output and the last time I listened to some test tracks featuring Lady Gaga, it made me hate her even more.
Either of the Audeze. Although having owned all in this poll, but the LCD-3, my all around favourite is the HD800 accross all genres. It's that good. But again YMMV, as you need very good downstream for the latter.
t1, hd800, lcd2r2, i could not possibly part with any of them, my v800 v200 combo makes all of them really shine, to give to any of them a preference in the poll would just be a lie,
but if i had the founds for just one of them i would go with the t1 because those tesla drivers are just so sexy energizing, killer resolution/separation and excellent 3d stereo imaging
