The award-winning LCD Collection, acknowledged by many as the best in the world, defined Audeze as the number one manufacturer of ultra-performance headphones. No competitor can match our powerful bass and flat response down to an amazing 20Hz, subtle dynamic gradations, ultimate detail without stridency, superb separation, or the enormous sense of space that sounds more like speakers in a room than drivers next to your ears.
Each LCD is individually tested and measured and, upon product registration, users may request their frequency response chart. Audeze headphones are handcrafted in the USA.
The closed-back LCD-XC
was created based on our core customers’ feedback. It delivers all the benefits of the LCD-X while isolating the listener and reducing ambient noise for a private listening experience, a significant achievement due to the inherent challenges of enclosing our planar transducers. The LCD-XC is the finest closed-back planar available, sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and mobile devices, but a high quality external amplifier produces better sonic results.
Our first foray into closed-back design, the LCD-XC has been in research and development for several years. Now featuring exclusive Fazor technology, we’re proud to release the XC, a fully-enclosed headphone with classic Audeze-quality sound for a more exclusive experience in noisy environments.
Our patent-pending Fazor elements are unique to the LCD-XC and LCD-X and help guide and manage the flow of sound in the headphone. The result is improved phase response, greater frequency extension, smoother frequency response, and remarkable 3D holographic imaging.
For the purest, most discerning audiophile listening sessions, open headphones remain the favored choice, but our closed-back LCD-XC is the best enclosed headphone experience you’ll find.
The LCD-XC is available in a hand-worked Bubinga wood. The enclosures are made from precision-crafted anodised aluminium with sloped earpads of either premium lambskin leather or a leather-free super-suede microfiber. The earpads are designed with specially-crafted foam offering the proper firmness and the right acoustic balance.
