I got a pair of LCD 2C a couple of weeks ago, but unfortunately, I don't think they're for me. I may just have HD600-ear, but coming from those headphones, I just feel like there is some information missing in the LCD 2C, especially in the upper mids and spatial presentation. At the same time, there was a bit too much treble for my tastes and setup. I can see why people enjoy them, however. The characteristic Audeze bass quality did not disappoint, and they were quite punchy. I tried both the Audeze pads and Dekoni elite velour pads. I noticed the same increase in upper mids and slight decrease in subbass that others did, but neither set of pads quite did it for me. I also found the vacuum seal of the stock pads to be pretty uncomfortable. The cushion of both pads and the suspension headband were reasonably comfortable, however. In any case, these will be going back to Audeze. Hopefully I don't eat too much of the refund for swapping the pads. They're nice, but not for me. My itch for planar bass in an open headphone will continue to go unscratched for now. Maybe I should try an AFO.
