Well these look interesting!

The LCD-2C is a new updated version of the original non-Fazor LCD-2.

And for $599, I'd say they look like a pretty sweet deal!!

*Edit* - The $599 price was only an introductory price, which has now expired. The new MSRP is $799. Not quite as sweet, but still pretty good. :money_mouth:

OMG YES. After hearing that the LCD-Pro might be the new LCD-MX4, I was really bummed. Now I don't care anymore! This is all I wanted! And it's much cheaper than I imagined it would be!

If it has 20 ohms as announced, could it have the LCD-X drivers? It’s Audeze’s only 20ohm driver.

Shouldn’t it use the LCD-2 driver?

I just noticed that the LCD-2C have the exact same specs as the just-announced $3000 LCD-MX4! :astonished:

Could be a typo, though. :kissing:
Not exactly the same. Sensitivity and magnet structure are different.

Oh hello there. These look sweet and what a price! It’s so great to see competition in the sub $1000 bracket with new open planar models from both Audeze and MrSpeakers.

This is all I wanted. If it can maintain the sound of those LCD-2 and be reliable, with more comfort and lower weight...this is the king. Looking forward to impressions.

Wow. Was not expecting this.

This is awesome in so many ways. This is a run, don't walk type of deal.
