I owned AKG 702's for years before I got the Audeze. I had always been very happy with the 702's compared to the normal comp of Senn 650's etc. Once I got the LCD's I knew there was no going back, completely different level.

From Audeze website

Each LCD3 comes with:

ADZ6SE Cable (single-ended): ” TRS to 2x4-pin mini XLR
ADZ6B4 Cable (balanced): 4-pin XLR to 2x4-pin mini XLR
Wood care kit
Wood case or ruggedized travel case
Personalized frequency response graph
Warranty documents
Jeff.......So, as I understand it from yours and doggiehowser's comments, the LCD-3 is under the LCD-2 which is double the price for a percentage of performance gain with a newer planar material, is that right?
