Based on my experience with it, you're absolutely right about the design--Audeze nailed it there. I had to sell my LCD-2C because it was simply too heavy for any period of extended use.
Picked this baby up in London today.
AK SP2000 > Audeze LCD1
Have to say... This just might be Audezes best headphone.
Hear me out before you bash me to a pulp. It's not Audezes best sounding headphone. But it's best headphone - it sounds fantastic, is comfortable to wear, isn't too heavy - - an actual headphone that can actually be worn and used practically.
Before this, every Audeze model had a fatal flaw. Too heavy (LCD line), non existent treble extension (LCD2), build quality and driver reliability of a dead dog (EL8), sucked out mids and boxy sounding (Sine Series).
I've owned the LCD4, LCDX, LCD2, Open EL8, Closed Sines - tried very hard to love them but couldn't force myself to love them as they all had one fatal flaw or another.
But this LCD1.... You guys have to try it to believe it....
However, I don't think this headphone sounds fantastic.. but that's simply a matter of preference; I won't bash you for that.
What I hope for, though, is for Audeze to continue with this design language and to implement it into a headphone that will produce a sweeter and lusher sound so that I may, someday, consider an Audeze planar again.
