    Most likely UK pricing will help me to decide between the two headphones.
    In the USA both cost 800 USD. Here in the UK the 2C is 600 GBP (~800 USD) while the AFO is 800 GBP (~1100 USD).
    I wonder how Audeze managed to keep the same price while Mr Speakers increased it by that much. Probably due to the size of the two companies?
    At this price point I prefer to have manufacturer's warranty instead of hunting for a secondhand bargain.

    Well that certainly helps. In that case I would definitely go with the 2C's. I don't think the AFO's are worth 200 GBP over the 2C's.

    I would rather drag my nads across 20 miles of broken glass before I do that

    Can anyone compare to the HE-560? I always wanted to buy one but now that i saw a good offer on the LCD2-C i couldnt argue but order them. They should arrive here any minute.

    Ssssssttiilllll loving these. Actually, loving them more than when I first got them. Perhaps "burn in" but idk, they sound better and more natural now.

    I can definitely say the same about the naturalness. At first I didn't think they were that natural sounding at all ( especially compared to the T1). Would be interesting if it's headphone or brain burn in xD

    Best bang for buck headphones in headfi currently? I think there is a case to be made.

    I got mine today and they sounded "okay" at best when i listened for the first 5 minutes. it was pretty underwhelming actually. After 5 hours burning in they already sound better, but i gotta a lot more listening first to make a verdict :)

    EDIT: the vst reveal plugin sure makes a lot of difference. sounding much more natural with it :darthsmile:

    Well... I think you would have to exclude discontinued/clearance priced headphones. HiFiMan has some truly outrageous deals going on some excellent cans. At MSRP though, I would bet you are correct.
