I find my LCD-2s to be too heavy for what I am looking for out of a pair of phones. What would be a good replacement for the LCD-2s that would be lighter and similarly sounding? Preferably around the same price or cheaper.
Looking for LCD-2 replacement
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
Plastic construction making it very light. Utilizes planar technology so the sound signature is similar in speed and bass response.
I have the bamboo version so the LCD-2s I have is slightly lighter than the HE-500s. I'm probably going to have to give up planar tech to get into the comfortable weight area I'm looking for. Any non-planar suggestions?

Yeah the lcd-2s are great but that's a pretty high end starting point. I would check out some reviews of the Alpha Dogs. They are pretty well acclaimed, I've even seen one reviewer say they come pretty close to the lcd-xc for closed cans, which is crazy because they retail for $1800 and the alpha dogs are only $600
By that mentality, we would all be sticking to our Clips and iPods (Because of the way things are priced in the higher end niche market)
e.g I am happy in the $350 range of headphones, because they are better value/sound very close to $800/etc
As a university student, I am reluctant to spend anything large on something I will not be putting a lot of use into. Have had a lot of fun in the mid-fi bracket, and I am afraid to dive any deeper....
Maybe one day the Beats brand will bring true Audiophile quality for the masses for ~$250 and shake things up hehe.
