The sound of the LCD-2s simply drags me back in again and again..lifting my entire spirit and soul. But it really is just so darn heavy..and given that I have shoulder/neck problems I really might just have to sell them :/ I'm not sure, and I'm afraid of the long term problems it may enforce. I have to put it this way, after the breakin of the lambskin pads, and the good weight distribution, they arn't bad comfort wise, and sometimes I don't even feel that they are on me, it's only when I take them off, stretch my neck and roll it around that I feel the pain. I got a massage the other day, and the messus was able to feel a lot of strain on my neck.! ...which caused excrutiating pain when she pressed on it btw. I'm really trying to decide if I should opt for something else now given its hefty properties...simply because of the issues that may arise in an unforseeable future.
