The Audeze LCD-2 Will Change the Way You Listen to Music
"Game-Changing" Planar Magnetic Beauties
Pronounced "Odyssey," Audeze is making waves in the headphone market with its staggeringly good LCD-2 headphone. A planar magnetic design, the LCD-2 is incredibly fast—with rhythm and pacing no dynamic driver headphone we've heard can match. Tonal balance is warm and almost golden, yet never rolled-off or syrupy. Tune after tune, the music flows, your toes tap, your head bobs, and the music sounds and feels just like you always knew it should. Sound engineers and musicians alike are raving about their brutally honest performance. The LCD-2s are so incredibly addictive and the leather padding so comfortable, you may never take them off.
"The sound: full-bodied, very revealing, and yet almost shockingly
smooth. A true sonic 'chameleon,' the LCD-2 instantly and effortlessly
reveals even small differences between associated electronics..."
Traditional planar magnetic speakers are designed with conductive traces (voice coil) spread across the surface of a thin diaphragm. This diaphragm is in turn held in an even magnetic field by strong neodymium magnets. When current flows through the voice coil, the magnetic field causes the diaphragm to vibrate. Audeze's research in fundamental driver design improves the basic planar technology with several proprietary materials and process techniques that deliver remarkable improvements.
"...both looks and sounds gorgeous. The LCD-2 offers generally neutral tonal balance with a very slight hint of warmth, coupled with extremely high levels of resolution and detail."
Most Planar Magnetic speakers use Mylar (PET) diaphragm with aluminum traces. Audeze transducers use new materials that offer substantial improvements for both diaphragm and traces. Audeze's proprietary Lotus diaphragm is capable of handling maximum continuous operating temperatures of over 400° F. This gives the drivers a smooth, resonance-free frequency response, excellent internal damping, edge damping, very low distortion and extremely fast transient response. In addition, the Audeze transducers are very versatile and efficient, so they pair well with a wide variety of amplifiers.
