Save both of them, do yourself a favour - get the PFE232's
I actually already have most of those. I like my UM3X because they are my airplane ride in-ears. Nothing works better from my experience when flying across the ocean in a 777. The IE80s I won in a contest and those were free smile.gif The A900X is the only addition to my list.

Indeed. I like having variety in my audio equipment. It SHOULD be a different experience when you put on something different.

I've always been interested in the differing philosophies of having numerous flavors versus having one to rule them all. I've listened to many flagships from recent memory (HD 800, T1, Edition 9, LCD-2 et al) save for the latest Stax and I haven't been interested in any of them over my JH13s which are going on 2.5 years now.

I'll probably sell my HF-2 sometime in the next 5 years (since I honestly haven't even pulled them out of the box for the past year or so) and roll with the JH13 with the Klipsch X10 as beater/gym headphones.

I was actually toying with the idea of purchasing a Pro 900, A900X, MMX 300, K550, or HD 580/600/650 for gaming at home when I don't want to bother my roommates. In the end I bought a $9 100-ohm resistor cable so I could just use my JH13s with my amp (which otherwise has channel imbalance at low amplification).
It's going to go down, I'm sure. I'm either going to return the A900X or I'll sell the PRO550. My AD700X is my office headphone.

I don't think I can ever get into the whole high-end thing. I just don't have enough time on my hands to justify headphones that cost as much as a car.

People who have multiple headphones usually buy new ones to fit their changing sound preference, are too lazy to sell them, want different sounding headphones on demand for different songs, or all of the above. Just my 2 cents.

simple question OC'ing Noob

was it worth it going from HD650 to LCD-2?

Hmm.... while the SQ is noticeably better everywhere outside of mids, given the 2.5x price point, I would have to say "No" Does this mean I will give up the LCD-2? Most likely not. It is one of those things I believe I wasted money on, but at the same time, I don't regret it.

You misunderstood me. I don't feel taken at all. I knew exactly what I was getting into when I purchased it, nor do I regret it either. My point was, it is like upgrading from a Nissan Skyline to a Porsche 911 Turbo or a mansion to a castle when you are the only one there and have no visitors. Do I feel the headphones are worth their price? Absolutely! Do I think the audio difference between the HD650 and LCD-2 compensates the $500-600 price difference? No I don't.

I can say that about anything I own. I could of built a cheaper computer. I could keep my Plasma television instead of upgrading to a more expensive one for a minute improvement in black level.

welcome to HiFi lol

Yup. I fully enjoy the LCD-2. I just don't think I would have been as inclined to upgrade to them as I was back then, now that I have experienced the practical audio difference.

I have a M50 Anniversary Edition, Grado SR325i sitting in the pizza box and a $400 Graham Slee Novo headphone amplifier just sitting around doing nothing.
