I picked up a 2016 model in the last few days.  I am also extremely happy with it so far.  I also have the T1, but haven't considered selling them yet.
 
I'm only about 4 hours in but the LCD-2F is much less dark than I was expecting.  I find the sound very balanced.  The bass goes deep but seems fairly neutral but still full.  There is plenty of treble sparkle and on my limited listening, have found them to be every bit as detailed as the T1.  (Maybe even more so)  The imaging is just fantastic.  Very pleased right now.  My expectations were obviously built on the pre-fazor discussions.  The only issue I'm having is comfort.  After about 40-60 minutes, the top of my head begins to hurt, where the band rests  I have a leather headband strap ordered that will hopefully fix that issue. 
Agreed. 
 
I've a T 90 myself. I can no longer tolerate it's peaky treble anymore. I much prefer the LCD-2 2016 treble.

If you are talking about the lohb strap like headband mod then it will definitely make a difference, it made my LCD 2 feel like they are floating on the head and I am so glad I got it. I found that there are several ways of attaching it to the yokes each with a different feel to it, but all with good results of reducing pressure on the head.
Got a link for that? Curios how it looks like

  Was there a version of LCD-2 released with non wood cups?
Yes, Adorama has an aluminum version.  Its the only LCD-2 'configuration' that only ever shipped with the 2016 driver revision.  In short, the ultimate LCD-2 :)

Perhaps Im being naive,but why would this be considered to be "ultimate" in your opinion? Does it perform better acoustically?

I meant that the re-voiced LCD-2F sounds better than the original and that ALU looks sexier than wood :)

I wasn't able to hear that bass difference between a late '15 model and an earlier one (fazored). Should be my ears though.
What do you think about this graph?
I removed the date as I would like your unbiased thoughts .

Was not a fan of the sound of the earlier models...Got the 2016 revision when i sent mine in for repair. Now this is how music should be enjoyed, period.

I'm wondering what is the sound difference with the LCD2rev2 and the last revision. Probably a bit brighter which I didn't feel necessary for my rev2.
In the bass department, where the fazor didn't have the favour, it sounds that the last revision is now uplifted but judging on the paper, I still don't see the flat line down to earth of the rev2.
