Firstly bloom was fantastic to work with. I inquired initially through discord then through email and he helped answer all my questions. Shipping was fast and well packed.
The first couple things about the LCD-2 that struck me when listening to them is the combination of how smooth they are with how much power they have in the low end. Bass is well textured with a pretty strong impact while being extremely smooth and pleasant. The mid range is crisp and realistic but not perfect in the upper mids. It can be improved with some light EQ around the 3-4k area. I personally added a few dB sub 100hz and at 3-4k. This cleans up the mid range helping with female vocals and makes the most of the lows. The highs are great with just enough air. I personally am sensitive to bright headphones and these lie in the perfect spot that I can listen for hours while still sounding great. The soundstage is very good but not as wide as an HD800 or similar. The imaging is great although certain directions aren't perfect. Its more than good enough for gaming though, it feels like cheating in R6 Siege. Separation is great as well. I have never before actually heard the distance between instruments and been able to focus on individual sounds so distinctly. They have held up well for almost a year as my daily drivers. I had a very minor issue with the leather headband but Audeze support handled it perfectly. I would highly recommend the LCD-2 as long as you like a fairly warm sound signature. These are by far the best sounding headphones I have heard and impress me each time I listen to them.
