From a customer service standpoint, it's not something customers appreciate.
From a business standpoint, the LCD-2 was the first headphone they mass-produced. The starting price was the one they knew they could make enough profit to keep afloat at. They did NOT need to raise the price to stay in business, nor to make a profit. This is why I have a problem with it.
The LCD-1 had a limited run under 30 (IIRC) and was priced at $400. The LCD-2 was protyped at $600-650 (can't exactly recall),
but they were released at $945.
Regardless, is it not to be expected. Takato, do you actually know they did NOT need to raise the price for any reason other than being greedy men?
It kind of feels like you're just being presumptuous.
Sure, you can dislike the price, but don't act like you know what their reasons for business decisions are.
Now correct me if I'm wrong with anything aforementioned.
