Description

Pronounced "Odyssey," Audeze is making waves in the headphone market with its staggeringly good LCD3 headphone. The LCD3 combines leading-edge planar technology with ongoing design input from sound engineers and audiophiles alike. Audeze uses a proprietary thin-film diaphragm that is housed between a unique super-efficient push-pull magnetic structure for an incredibly fast, detailed sound. Audeze's manufacturing process, combined with advanced materials and technology, produce extremely accurate and incredible sounding headphones. The LCD3 earcups are made of precision-crafted, hand-selected Zebra Wood (Zebrano). The sloped ear pads are made of premium lambskin leather, with specially molded foam to offer just the right amount of firmness.

"I have never heard a set of headphones that got even remotely close to the sound of live music the way this one does...The LCD-3's dynamic punch is simply the best I've heard, bass definition and power are phenomenal, stereo imaging is remarkably open and spacious. No dynamic headphone at any price comes close to the LCD-3's sound."
— Steve Guttenberg, CNet

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.

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 vareity of amplifiers.

Features:
  • Custom designed Zebra Wood (Zebrano) ear cups
  • Premium lambskin leather ear pads
  • Left and right transducers have matched sensitivity and frequency response within +/- 0.5 dB
  • Specially designed self-closing, acoustically transparent magnetic structure
  • Highest grade Neodymium magnets
