Personally I think it looks better but I could see Audeze making decisions off of aesthetics alone.
I would bet that after the sale ends (whenever that is, guessing after holiday season) they will make their way to distributors at full $799 price. They would be a fairly normal business model. An on-sale soft launch direct from Audeze, and then a full launch after the sale ends to distributors.
With pre-order/ early direct purchases being delivered mid-Dec. / before holiday, I don't think we will see many reviews until around that time. Even if demo/ review units are sent out, it seems we won't see reviews until normal deliveries or a little before.
I suspect that Audeze limits public exposure to the 2C so that more people will be tempted to blindly pre-order before the prices go up again.
If a product has inherent value in the market, review/demo units would already be widespread. I feel that Audeze has something to hide here.
This is just pure speculation, talking out of my arse here. Please correct me if there are any unfounded claims.
Or it may be the complete opposite. It is quite possible that Audeze is so convinced they will get many favorable reviews of the 2C they sold directly, that they will definitely sell many at $799 after the introduction sale ends.
How common are sales like this for Audeze products? This is an amazing price for an LCD2 but Id really rather wait till the dust settles and we get some reviews before buying.
The LCD-2 goes on sale all the time at Adorama, actually you can get them right now for $650 through these links:
It is pure speculation .The LCD2C is throw back to our original LCD2 model. LCD2 was practically the headphone that led the Planar headphone revival and put Audeze on the map. It won numerous awards and was widely reviewed. No idea, what we have to hide.
the main thing they want to hide is the actual weight, first impressions from audio shows claimed up to a 40% reduction in weight, in reality it is just around 20g
Been so close to ordering these but 100+ dollar for shipping to sweden and then I will probably get customs fee as well
Will see how initial reviews are maybe that will tip me over.
That is good to hear, I really miss those pre-fazor unicorn LCD 2s, those made me fall in love with Audeze years ago. I do hope that demo units can be sent to my local distributors soon!
Steve Guttenberg already has it for testing and review. I asked him if they are as warm as the old pre Fazor LCD-2, he said they aren’t...
Is he comparing to Rev1 or Rev2?
I don’t know
Hi, I bought the audeze SINE on BF, and after 5 days it is still pending, I can't get no response from Audeze support.
We are back at work today and processing orders. You should get a reply today.
