The LCD2.2s sound amazing out of a Lyr with Amerperex orange globe A-frames (or the Stock GEs for that matter). The HD650s are beautiful with the Lyr, but the LCD2.2s are a significant step up and worth every penny. Audeze has a great record of standing by their products and offers a three-year warranty. Most of the products we discuss on headfi are nearly impossible to audition without going to a meet or purchasing. Their liability insurance may not cover the public visiting, so when you bliss out listening to the LCDs and trip down the stairs--it doesn't take out the company.
This was my post from the Lyr Tube rolling thread.
This topic bridges both threads and I apologize in advance for the redundancy.....
For me there are a couple of things here. 1) I haven't received a reply to emails sent on Monday. Sales emails, not Support emails.
2) When I called in I asked for sales. The person that answered the phone was.. what do you want?... I can help you. OK it's a small company maybe the person that answers the phone handles sales. I don't know. It was clumsy dialog where I wasn't asked what product etc. The person didn't try to "sell me." Just clear the call. 3) If you buy it from the "factory" online you can return it within 30 days....... if you pay a 15% restock fee.
Audeze benefits wherever I may buy them. Online or otherwise. They gave me 2 dealers one an hour away and one 1.5 hours away in Los Angeles. They were visit by appt. It would not be fair to take up their time and purchase them elsewhere.
Since Audeze charges a 15% return fee, maybe they sell factory refurbs??
