Couple of more things: I do love the comfort of my NHs. Lightweight and the most comfortable headphones I have ever touched. I am a bit worried of the Audeze weight. This held me back from trying any of their headphones before. Some consider the 2C an improvement, some still complain, so this pushes me towards the AFO. Might worth mentioning too, that my first and only introduction to planars was the 400s. (Not the i.) I was utterly disappointed by the lack of character and total lack of bass. Voices were nice and natural, but that's about it. I know the LCDs are on another planar level, but thought I share to give a better picture of my preferences. I am really excited about the LCD2C at the moment, but don't want to miss out the AFO if that is better for my taste. Edit: I will use my beloved Chord Mojo which I prefer even to the iDSD BL due to its more natural sound. More than one of you like this combo with the LCD2C, so I am not worried about that. Yet to find out how Mojo drives the AFO, probably similarly well.
