  I wonder whether anyone (incl Audeze) has measured an LCD-xx freq curve, with Rosewood vs. Bamboo cups. Might be interesting. All other factors being constant.
if it were the LCD-XC then there might be a difference...just looking at the design of the open LCDs the choice of wood cannot possibly affect the sound in any meaningful way no?

  I have found that bamboo -> ninja music, aluminum -> airplane music.  so I would guess that rosewood gives you more of a hobbit music sound 
hobbit music sound? i was thinking a more elvin sound

On another note, I am seriously curious about Audeze driver variability/silent revisions. I wish we could all get together somewhere and listen to each others' LCD-2s lol. I cant put mine away since they came back from repair, its ridiculous...now i'm hoping they never break again because i honestly dont know what i will get back

These guys must be trolling lol, no benefits man...purely aesthetic, but it really is a lot better looking than the comparatively utilitarian bamboo
Ya man, all us Canadians are just a bunch of trolls.

  In an undamped system, a forced vibration at the natural frequency of any material will give you resonance and this would be audible.  But I feel like this is more of consideration for driver construction, especially in an open-backed headphone.
It is with honor, I give you the "Trolliest Troll of the Year" award. seriously, hahahaha. Honestly your sarcasm is on point...the passive aggression is just sublime man, kudos

The type of wood makes a difference for Grados but then the amount of wood in the grado cup is much higher in proportion compared to the LCD-2/3, the LCD-XC with the entire back made of wood will have its sound affected by different types of wood, similar to the TH-X00 (mahogany vs purple heart)

Would a cable upgrade be worthwhile? I don't like the stock one very much. 

Cables are really a personal choice, hard to tell someone else they matter. I got a DHC Complement 4 for mine and I notice more detailed, cohesive sound. Worth the price? That's a totally personal decision.

Well do you mean you don't like the physical design or the sonic character you think it gives ? That's a start...

Vegan have to have at least a little more sound absorption, right? So I guess yes.

It has come up before, Vegan vs lambskin - and official word is there is no difference.

My stock cable was coming apart after a year so I bought a Forza Audioworks cable that I totally love. It's pretty pricey, but the para cord construction of it is very durable. It also looks way better. I have the Noir Hybrid and I definitely think it tightened up the bass and added a little more clarity.

Got a great custom cable from Impact Audio Cables:

Really good quality and it won't break the bank.
