I'm willing to sign up to demo some audeze cans, but how does the shipping work?
How long are we allowed to keep the demo pair?
Which rev is the LCD2?

you'd be responsible to pay the shipping to the next person.  i am still working out all the details.  the length of the demo is going to depend on the number of sign-ups.  the LCD-2s that I have are the latest version

Sending the pm for the LCD2. It was that or the HE500, but since ive already owned the HE-4 and HE400, figured I'd try something new. The Audeze's leather pads and weight will no doubt bother me, but I wanna see what all the fuss is about. The HD650 made me appreciate dark/smooth headphones, so I hope they won't be disappointing.

That's alright, I forgot that large flat rate is only 15 dollars, so that's not bad at all.  Count me in!
 
Damnit, MLE beat me for LCD2!  That's what I get for being a stingy bastard about shipping.

if the list is arranged by location then fedex ground could be done so it arrives the next day at each location (even USPS is likely to always be 2 days).  everyone would have a fedex drop-off near by i assume.

You don't want the HD800.  It doesn't have the sound you want I don't think.

That sounds expensive.  I don't like any added expense at the.. expense, of an additional 1-2 days.

Actually, its like a bigger Q701. Gotta be amazing for gaming. I know personally I wouldnt want it as a music headphone, but I need to experience that soundstage and detail whoring. I've heard it's stupid good for Dolby Headphone gaming. I'd never spend over $1000 for a headphone I'd use just for gaming, but demo? Yes please.

I wish Justin had the vegan pads for the LCD2. That would really make my day.

I'd be interested in auditioning HE-500 :)
 
Curious if 'the grass is greener' even though I think it's out of my pricerange for a little while (and would have to offload HE-400 too) unless I could get a sweet deal on a used pair or something from the marketplace. But I auditioned He-500 for all of ten minutes before A/Bing HE-400 and HD650, the pair I had at the moment that I ended up returning. Some sit down time with HE-500 would be really cool.

Thanks. This sounds like it could be a lot of fun/good idea that's like 'Headfi pay it forward'
 
you got PM and filled out form.
