Been collecting cans for two years and have amassed a decent collection. These updated mk2's were stuck at $1499 forever; then you may find them at $1299. Adorama featured them at $999 and then $949. Now at $899 will personally guarantee this is a SD. Awesome closed cans with amazing story about production - starting with some 400 year old Japanese guy finding the perfect tree to start the six week process concluding with sprinkling crumbled foil to emboss the logo. Now - that said - happy to own them - this is DEF the lowest price - absolutely. But with any of my amps - i.e. Pro iCan, Audeze Deckard or even iFi Micro iDSD Black Label - they don't hold a candle to any of my Audeze's in the LCD lineup - esp the newer versions with upgraded Fazor Technology. These are comfy as hell - beautiful and good bass - the included cable is a C+ at best and 10 feet long w/ ready ability to introduce noise or tangled on something to any thoughts of portability. Summary - Slickdeal 100% thank you - though I paid more! But if you want to run with the big dogs - Bass - attack/delay - mids - highs - staging etc. - my LCD-Xf for example with 106mm drivers are heavy as hell but with even low power at 20 Ohms. You'll have to look for Audeze's 2nd's Sale or other combo deals to come close to this price but personally if I were to redo my 900 mk2's - woulda gripped up some Massdrop XX's for about $400 - I think the MassDrop XX Versions of these are 92% of the sound and 70% the beauty of these for about 40% the price.

What piece of garbage 5.1 system are you going to buy for $900?

I can never understand why there are so many whining babies on this site. You're not into audio and don't want to spend this money on a headphone, cool, go away and stop crying. Let the people who are interested enjoy the deal.

MRI? Ha Ha. Yes, I suppose the next model might be the 3T. Back to the point: This looks like a good deal. I personally enjoy the Fostex over the Senn HD800 or HD800S. Audeze doesn't fit my head. Audeze LCD2 is fatiguing to my ears but the LCD3 and LCD4 sound like heaven (but cost like hell).

It has a very clear,natural sound with fantastic 3d sound stage.. I have been using it with Cord Mojo and I see that they are a great match.
