Well, I don't mean to state anything... but I really have listened to a lot of high-end headphones, got impressed by the JPS Labs Abyss, and still... somehow I feel the HE-560 is the best headphone I have heard to date.
It keeps scaling up with higher quality components in the signal path, too. This is the first headphone I have put on my head that can reliably demonstrate the differences between DACs for me. That's how I am able to tell my Neko Audio D100 Mk.II is significantly better than the AMB Gamma2. It's not even a subtle difference. It's almost like night and day.
If one day I get the chance, I'll definitely have you listen to my HE-560 rig, and then you'll understand why I've been praising the HE-560 non-stop.
I was of a similar opinion when I heard the LCD-2 recently.
Prior to the HE-560, I thought it would have been my end-game, but now that I am accustomed to the HE-560, the LCD-2 suddenly feels... "behind" in a lot of aspects.
