2nd factory often refers to scuffs.. these afaik are unlikely to be damaged but also not considered NEW (for example. if it was worn even fro 5 min, can't consider new), but full warranty applies

So, yesterday's EL-8 was Titanium and closed, but came with the Cipher Cable (Lightning Connector) and the standard audio, so worth $20 more probably if you have Apple devices.

Today's LCD-2 price is the lowest i've seen. Open is going to leak sound, while closed is better if you're going to be around other ppl etc. In general i've seen better reviews for the EL-8 open vs. the closed model.


Sigh. I .... don't .... need ..... more .... headphones.

I think the other thread seemed to indicate they are refurbished.

YES the closed back el-8 are the best in that line which is why they are soldout for a very long time. The titanium deal that was up not to long ago is a bit different and made more for iphones (not worth it in my opinion). The open back are ok but you really have to consider the other options in that price range and then you come to the conclusion they aren't really that good. Audeze makes great product but they overprice everything they make.

Not too overpriced for the quality, but prices are steadily falling and they have great sales.
