I own LCD 2 aluminum addition but played with bamboo ones - believe there are similar in weight but much more comfortable than LCD2s and amplified they the sound on par and I find the more comfortable ! Wink

I actually ordered a closed set and it turned out to be a refurb one ! besides the point that I realized that I prefer open back ! I have not noticed any difference except : no gold seal on the box and a blue referb. sticker on the front of the box ! Rock

I had these from Adorama last time it was on sale (a month ago) The refurb packaging was good. It almost was like brand new packaging (I compared mine to box opening videos on youtube) except box having refurb sticker on outside surface. I thought packaging+headphone itself looks just as new and showed my gf and a friend of mine for their opinions. They both agreed that it seemed perfectly fine and new. Nothing wrong with product+packaging. But then I could be the lucky one with good packaging, so YMMV. Hope this helps tho.

I had white box (outside). Inside of the box was black if I remember correctly.

Supposedly, last year model (2015) has really loose connectors on the earcups to the wires.
I got the 2016 version, which didn't have the loose connectors and had the issues fixed.
I still returned mine, because whenever I move my head, even really slightly (from tiling/turning head, walking around home), there was really bad crackling noise. Some of the units apparently do not have issue. You should definitely check for this too if you buy.

I bought directly from Adorama website. I dont know what the return policy is when the product is fully functional. I stated to Adorama my product had noise issue, and they gave me full refund + shipping back.
