Thanks for your feedback sir, my 2 favorites headphones are the LCD-2 and the RS-1 so I will probably like the Open-Back EL-8
I love the overall tone of the LCD-2, but for some bands I need more bite/crunch in the sound of distorted electric guitars. I bought a pair of Grado 225e recently because I was not fully happy with the LCD-2F.
On a side note, you should check out the XC's. Ooh man do I love them for metal and pretty much anything else I throw at them.
The XC's cost $2100 CAD + taxes
Anyway I have already pre-ordered the Open-Back EL-8. (Sill waiting for my tracking number)
