I can't imagine thinking the LCD-3 I heard sounding like it had upper midrange peakiness to anyone because I seem to be one of the more sensitive to this out there, and I thought it was the major redeeming quality about the LCD-3- the lack of upper midrange peaks or elevation compared to other headphones. So yes, I think it might be reason to send them in.
I did hear a little bit of the reverb-y glare in the 3 I heard (I'd say it was about 5-10% of what it was in the LCD-2), but that's not a peak at all, and it's not in the upper midrange.
Unless, the source material or the source is the issue in question. Running test tones and well recorded tracks from varied genres would help pinpoint this to source material issue or transducer issue. Assuming of course that the amp is not lending its own character as well.
