Well said. If these headphone check all the boxes of ones’s preferences and they have the money, let alone $800, people would pay $8000. If someone does not like how they sound, it would be tough to even pay them to listen to the lcd-2c. Its all subjective and relative. We all basically aspire to the same things in our day to day lives as human beings on earth. The only difference is the scale and degree of freedoms each of us are given or attain to pursue these desires.I do not own these, I do follow this thread as I am very interested in these lcd-2c, and at some point plan to buy. How much one thinks what a fair price is, is just as personal and complicated as to what sounds good to a individual's ears. We all have different systems, (amps dacs cables & so on) and different ears that like different sounds. Same with cost, we all have different budgets and what we think as a fair price or too much. I for one would never ever pay $3000 + for a set of headphones. While some people do not give it a second thought and pay that and more. There is no right or wrong answer, it just depends on the individual.
What bothers me about the lcd-classics is the fact that when it first came to market they were priced $200 less than they are now. I would bet that they did not lose any money selling them for that price. So I have been put off from making a purchase at the full retail price since. Am I right, am I wrong, no, there is no right or wrong just my opinion. I do feel if they sold them for that at that time, they could sell them for that now. So I will wait until the price drops or just buy a used pair. Again this is just my humble opinion.
