"If your budget allows, I strongly encourage you to audition the Audeze LCD-2 CB’s. These wonderful headphones manage to combine traits from the best of both worlds (closed-back and open-back headphones) into one package, with no obvious compromise cost. These headphones are well-made, attractive, and supremely comfortable. They are equally at home in a recording studio, or as part of a home entertainment system, or as your go-to personal practice rig."
"The Audeze LCD-2C is an excellent headphone - but not for the reasons that I expected. It offers a listening experience that veers towards studio monitors, and is a spectacular performer especially when it's paired up with excellent headphone amps. Paired up with iconic good-looks, it's a pair of headphones that I recommend to adorn any music lover's desktop sound setup."
