Cuz it's Saturday and there's not much else to do at the moment.

It's not arguing. It's playful rivalry.

Must burn though when you're paying 1200 for a headphone when the 700 dollar one comes with everything you need and sounds almost as good.

$500 of audiogoodnessseseses? I don't theeenk soooo.

I haven't heard the HE-500 yet. Is it's bass comparable to the LCD-2?

The LCD-2 beats the HE-500s in bass for sure. Mid range as arguable, but most prefer the LCD-2s for rock sound over the HE-500. LCD-2 has more slam in it's bass. Goes really deep too. Describing the bass on HE-500s is very difficult.

HE-500 has a more airy sound to it than LCD-2s and are better for Jazz/Classical music. The LCD-2s are better for rock.

The LCD-2's are a faster headphone many argue and the HE-500 is already fast as is.

LCD2 Rev 1 is more on par with the HE-500.

LCD2 Rev 2 is more on par with the HE-6.

Just got the xb1000s finally. Compared bass wise to the Pro 900s, the xb1000s are way better. Mids and highs seem about the same now that I've had some time to listen to it.

cheap pleather headband, crappy stitching, cheap pleather pads, cheap velour pads, the plastic clips break easily, the SMC connectors are a pain in the ass, not a comfortable headphone for me, cheap box.

Audeze LCD-2 is worth the extra $295 for this alone. it's the better sounding headphone.

300 more for the headphone. Then you want to spend another 200 for the cable. That's 500 dollars.

It's leather, not pleather. Don't even try to play it down. It's a very nice and soft leather as well and with the design of the headphones you don't need a very thick headband. You need it even lesser so than LCD2s. The SMC Connectors are fine unless you're constantly taking them off for some reason and even so it takes like 2 seconds to screw it in. Stop whining.

The plastic clips do break easily though. They have modified this; however, with the newer bendable black plastic on the velours. While the leather pads are by no means Audeze quality (lamb skin lul), they're not absolutely terrible. Even still I use the velours and while they're not Beyer soft, they're still very comfortable..more than the HE-400s velours which were a bit course IMO.

It's leather. The 700 dollar HE-500s come with a silver cable.
