Yes, exactly. The GL2000's come with the option of either single-sided or double-sided arrays. The rave reviews have all been about the double-sided designs, so that's what I ordered. I know Audeze still uses double-sided arrays for most of their LCD line, which definitely increases the weight, but also maybe increase their "slam factor." I'm just hoping these won't be as heavy. And I think a lot of Hifiman headphones (like the Ananda) still use double-sided mangets, but they're using assymetrical magnets (larger magnets on one side compared than the other) to reduce weight. Am I wrong on that?
And also yes! Drop does have a good discount, but their orders ship beginning in late April (!!!), so I just ordered from Linsuol directly.
They are 535grams, LCD 2F's and 2Cs are about 580grams, for comparison. So they will still be pretty heavy.
