An authorized Audio Technica reseller is offering me the LEs for the same price as the black ones. $170 USD. If i wait for the original black ones, I won't receive them until the 17th-20th of February. If I decide to go for the Blue LE (for the same price), I should receive it within a week from now.
Which one would you go for in this case?
Is the sound significantly different between the two?
hhmmm.....very hard to tell as we don't really have the same ears. imho, since i've listened to both, i would still stick with the standard one. they sounded a bit smoother in the mids versus the LEs. but, YMMV, if you could audition them first, the better
