Hmm, maybe you just got a bad pair of these ear pads. I would send this photo to Audeze customer support - after all, these are expensive items and you can expect a long life, maybe they will help you. I think it's definitively worth a shot.
 
Cheers.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've contacted them, got a discount offer for a replacement. Will get a new pair to replace the current one :)

It looks like those are the old pads. They'll be sending you LCD-2.2 pads, which are much nicer.

Thanks. Sure hope so :)   Already placed order, but this time I opted for the non-leather ones. The current leather ones only look bad, but they are still very nice and comfortable. The peelings are only at the edges.

I wonder if I can send my 2014 LCD2f to get an update to the new sound signature - I would love to have better bass slam and impact. Happy to pay for the update if reasonable. I shall contact Audeze support and see.
 
Cheers!

Mine was manufactured nov 2015. So this one is not yet the silent revision model?

It could be... I think it started during October-November so it probably is. But only Audeze can verify that.

thanks. Based from the fr graph compared to older fazor models, I think mine is the new silent revision

I hope that means that my 2,2s come back from dead driver replacement with that flavour of fazor. (Left driver called it quit after 2 years)
 
Then again, I've already committed to an LCD3 upgrade and am thoroughly enjoying a demo pair at home while waiting for my actual set to come in, so that might be a moot point if I decide to sell the 2s. 
 
While I enjoyed my 2.2s to bits, I'd always felt that there was a bit of congestion when I fed them with complex music. That is definitely not the case with the 3s, amongst other things. One thing I do have to concede to the 2s is that for all their lack of high end refinement, they more than make up for it with their thumping presence and slamming bass. I may yet keep them. :)
 
LCD 2 for proper rocking out with edm/alternative and LCD 3 for classical/jazz/everything else? Sounds like a plan.

So quoting myself....
 
I heard back from Audeze. You can send in your LCD-2 for complete transducer change - which will update the sound signature to the latest and greatest. Costs are $250 plus shipping. I am pretty convinced to do it, but have to wait until after a local meet up.
 
Great customer service from Audeze. It's so good to know that this is offered to customers!! Respect!
 
Cheers!

Sorry-for both transducers?

Thanks

This puts my earlier argument into different lights.
I find it great that Audeze offers this. Makes pointless to rename slightly improved/updated LCD2 models.
Thanks for the info.

I think this could be true. I've got an 'Oct 15 LCD-2f that sounded very similar to a pre-fazor 2.2 with better treble and soundstage.
