I dunno, I haven't heard many flagship headphones (only two to be exact) but I quite enjoyed the LCD 2 hooked up to the Schiit Lyr/Bifrost. When I did a A\B comparison to the HE-6 I thought the HE-6 was a more capable can in that the bass was better controlled mids were more detailed and the treble was more extended. Here's the thing though out of the two cans it was the LCD-2 that was able to make me tap my toes to the music. Meh, what do I know I guess I'll never be an audiophile. Maybe one of these days I'll take the plunge and grab myself a HE-500 and see what the fuss is about. Even so I'd be quite proud to own a LCD-2.
Keep rocking the LCD-2's my man. I also have to compliment you on being lucky enough to be married to such a beautiful wife.
God bless Dan
Thanks Digital ! )
Man, you cannot deny the posts' value. The man has a vast experience and further more he owns most of those cans ) . And i say i agreed with him on most opinions that I can afford having (with my so much more smaller experience). It is the most complete review on headfi, which makes it one of the best.
