Compared to the 6xx I find they get hot on my ears, they sound a little bit harsh in some of the mid range, they don’t sound as musical and relaxed and they are not as comfortable.
But, I like the bass and I love how dark they sound. Quiet bits are deathly silent, it’s a cool affect.

I haven’t listened to the 6xx since I got the 2c, that’s partly lack of time and partly worrying I will like the 6xx more and then regret getting the 2c lol.


Well that's rather disappointing! I tried the most recent LCD2 and thought they were "good" and I *love* the LCD3 but just don't want to spend that much money on cans so I thought maybe the LCDC2 would be my holy grail for an open-backed over-ear set to compliment my Final Audio Sonorous VI's. I am looking for a warmer, lusher sound.


The Mr Speakers Aeon Flow are also on my list - maybe they would be a better option? Also considering the various HiFi Man options, but I am so leery of their build quality and longevity...

So, I’ve had a chance to do some back to back comparisons between the 6xx and the 2c.
In summary, I’m now 100% in love with the 2c. I realised I should swivel the cups a little and the pressure on my jaw is completely removed, they are now very comfortable.
I love the sound compared to the 6xx, the bass and ‘moodiness’ is sooo nice. Not sure exactly how to describe it, but I’m addicted. I changed the driver tubes on my amp and I feel it’s become just a little more musical as well.
I’m a total fan now!

I liked the Audeze products I've tried from a sound quality perspective, but comfort is a real concern and I see it's reflected in the latest reviews as well. I don't understand how, given the attention to detail regarding most things, they could have ignored all the feedback on comfort I have seen over the years, especially when you compare to almost every other brand.


In that price range, there are headphones that sound 99.9% as good, but are 30% more comfortable. You can't even buy alternative pads..

I do my listening at night lying down on a bed, with pillows behind my back and supporting my head. This helps with the comfort of these, especially as they are on the heavy side.
