Some impressions from HeadphoneAddict taken from this meet thread
"Audeze LCD-2 and LCD-3 and prototype closed headphone - I still prefer the LCD-3 over the other two, and the LCD-2 r2 is still a bit better than my LCD-2 r1 (or is it R3 now that the cable connector is different). I'm going to have to make the change to an r2 once and for all, even though the r1 on the right DAC and amp are fantastic. I've just finally gotten my LCD-2 broken in so that they don't clamp my head too tight, and I'm reluctant to change that. Might have to stick with used. If the LCD-3 were closer to $1,300 - $1,400 I'd probably already own a pair (and would have bought them long before I had to fight to keep my head above water to pay for kid's college - now it's too late). The closed headphones had tight fast bass, but not enough of it to make me happy. They didn't have the colorations that typically plague a closed headphones, so already on the right path there."
