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.
