What we think:

"The LCD-1's are the perfect combination of sound quality and affordability"
"They have that great open back planar sound but are also incredibly comfortable on the head and not intrusive at all, I forget that they're there."
"I love that on top of the great sound and price they also come with a nice braided cable, a carry case and the headphone plugs work both ways (no more left plug-right plug nonsense)"
