Just got these in today, driving them off a jumpered BasX A100, and initial impressions are extremely positive. It's weird, it's like I required a decent number of tracks-worth of brain burn-in before the LCD-2C clicked with me, but now I can't take them off. They're so dynamic. The low end is most certainly not basshead whomping amazing or even close to the quantity and slam of the TH-X00, but it is extremely well controlled and extends DEEP without sounding the slightest bit muddy. Erykah Badu's live album sounds downright holographic, as does the Yosi Horikawa I'm listening to right now. I do have a bit of a neck-ache after about 1 1/2 hours listening, but the new strap is doing its job and I think overall the LCD-2Cs and I are going to get along well.
