    A small update to my previous post.
    I have been running burn-in track from 2XHD AUDIOPHILE HI-RES TEST ALBUM for about 100 hours now and subjectively bass have improved. So I can say that at the moment I am 100% satisfied with the sound.
    I haven't tested the microphone yet, since I am at work till mid October.

    I remember quite a few people were asking about the weight of the headphones. I finally got to the proper scales and my pair weighs 490 grams without the cable.

    Anyone know if Audeze will make an audiophile-tuned version of this same base LCD model? I have no gaming intentions, but these seem like a good deal for some LCDs.

    LCD-GX has regular 6.3 mm jack. So just ignore mini jack cable with mic and use it for your audiophile needs.

    Thx for describing it perfectly for me. I tried them both yesterday at a shop and I just thought that the LCD GX was too neutral for my tastes. Do note I have alot of 'fun' hp, campfire cascade, hifiman X V2,Zmf aeolus, fidelio x2. I was looking forward to the LCD GX to bring forward to my UNI next year seeing as how it has a mic and will save me up space and it's also lighter than the LCD2. But now I think I will just get the LCD2 and bring an external mic. The pro of the GX for me is that the soundstage is a tad bit bigger. Though according to your review , the LCD2 will still suffice for gaming
    Edit= NVM, I forgot about the weight of the LCD2. Might be leaning towards the GX now

    I don't think that the weight in this case is a deal breaker.
    LCD-2 Classic - 550g.
    LCD-2 - 595g (Rosewood), 580g (Shedua/Bamboo)
    LCD-GX - 490g.
    60-105g difference. But in case of LCD-GX you do get an extra cable with mic and mini jack.

    I love the build quality of Audeze headphones. I just wish they weren't such a neck workout!

    I keep hoping that someday they'll release an LCD series headphone that utilizes a nice, lightweight single-sided magnet structure (like Hifiman does).

    So far I had no problem with the weight of GX. The only complaint I have is that after about 1 hour my ears start sweating.
