In that case, I think you will like them. Their tonal presentation is not so different from the HD600, but they have more punch and dynamic contrast. More rock, more roll

I have not heard the MF V8P, but if it drives your HD600 ok, then I'm sure it will be fine for the LCD-2.

I believe the connector LCD-2 has been revised to the same metal connector as on the LCD-3.

I thought it was only if you opted for the pricier bamboo? finish.

If you take a look at their product page, it shows both the rosewood and bamboo models with the angled metal connector.

Shame really.

I know the wooden extension used to have complaints about the angle, that it protruded towards the neck but I felt it was a sturdier connector than the glued on metal clip.

Default LCD2's - I love mine

I had these for a few years and love them. It blows me away every time I put them on. I honestly don't listen to them as much as I would like. New headphone amp I recently picked up has changed that lately though.

Dan I don't but I can say that I did audition them and really liked them compared to my old Senn 650s I sold. I wanted a step up to compete with the 800s so I have the LCDx and added a wireworld cable and yet another step up and the sound is amazing blows away my Senn 800s and I think in it's prices range I would image that the LCD2 is a great headphone.

You do hear a fair amount of musix outside on all the Audeze, not excessive and at low volumes not bad at all I would say on the open backs similar to an 800. I know they make a closed back too, but it is step up.

I have a set of these and absolutely love them. I have an older pre fazor pair. I plug them into my c38 preamp or my deckard. I also recently picked up a used ALO cable.
