This is what happens to my files when I listen to them:
 
FLAC -> Foobar2000 (WASAPI) -> M-Audio Delta Audiophile 24/96 -> RCA Cables -> Woo Audio 6 -> Q-Audio Cable -> Audeze LCD-2
 
When I first start listening to music, the left ears sound cuts to nothing for around 5 seconds, and then "pops" back in, never giving trouble afterward.
 
What could be the culprit here?

Does it happen with other headphones?
 
If not it could be the diaphragm sticking, but I am not sure if that is even possible with the design.

Unfortunately, it must be our headphones, because I have the same problem - when you start them after a while the left headphone makes no sound or makes some noise. The problem dissapears when you add some volume or wait for the same 10 sec.
I use FLAC -> Foobar2000 (WASAPI) -> Yamaha AX-496 -> Audeze LCD-2
It really sounds like membrane "sticks" to something.
I wonder how long our headphones will last...
