Reference-Setting Audeze LCD-X Planar-Magnetic Headphones Deliver Lifelike Three-Dimensional Sound, Include Patent-Pending Fazor Technology, and Exude Luxury Comfort
Acclaimed Audeze LCD-X Will Forever Change What You Think About Headphones: Open-Back U.S.A.-Made 'Phones Won 2015 Product of the Year Awards from Stereophile and The Absolute Sound
Once you experience the Audeze LCD-X planar-magnetic headphones, you will never again think about headphones in the same way. One of the most universally acclaimed personal audio products ever created, the U.S.A.-made LCD-X 'phones tout standard-setting efficiency levels, cutting-edge Fazor technology, a light, thin transducer, and wonderfully comfortable earpads for proper fit and ideal balance. LCD-X plays at high volumes even without a headphone amplifier (meaning it can be easily driven by portable devices), yet the supremely spacious sound is what really separates this open-back design from the competition. Genuinely lifelike in its detailed presentation, LCD-X offers three-dimensional soundstages, superb dynamics, extraordinary frequency response across the range, and tremendous warmth.
We could go on for paragraphs about the Audeze LCD-X's seriously transforming and life-changing performance but we'd rather refer to the experts. Namely, the hi-fi industry's leading American magazines, The Absolute Sound and Stereophile, both of which bestowed prestigious Product of the Year Awards on LCD-X in late 2014. This is the ultimate "go-anywhere" headphone. So go ahead. Allow LCD-X to severely alter what you think headphones can do with music. It's backed by our 60-Day Satisfaction Guarantee, but we don't think you'll be returning LCD-X in this lifetime. These 'phones are that good!
"Audeze's headphone designs are dangerously attractive indeed. Like the famous hazards Odysseus attempted to navigate, it's difficult to avoid their pull."
– TONEAudio, Product of the Year Award
State-of-the-Art Transducer and Fazor Technology Yield Unbelievable Sonic Benefits
The reference-level Audeze LCD-X headphones feature a newly developed and processed transducer made of a thinner and lighter alternative material with Fazor technology. Fazor elements are unique to the LCD-X and LCD-XC models 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 listening at home, the beautifully finished and equally beautiful-sounding Audeze LCD-Xs have seduced me..."
– John Atkinson, Stereophile
Incredible Efficiency, Amazing Comfort
The LCD-X transducer is specifically designed to work with a wide variety of driving sources. From portable players to studio use, the ultra-efficient LCD-X provides high volume levels even without a headphone amplifier. LCD-X earcups are made from polished anodized aluminum with sloped ear pads of either premium lambskin leather or leather-free super-suede microfiber fabric. The earpads are designed with specially crafted foam, offering proper firmness and acoustic balance.
"It is my opinion that the LCD-X can compete with all of the very best high-end loudspeakers."
– Arnie Nudell, The Absolute Sound
Headphone Cables and Travel Case Included
LCD-X comes packaged with two high-quality headphone cables (one with a balanced XLR connector, the other with a standard 1/4-inch plug). Each has four-pin mini XLR connectors for each earcup to ensure a watertight connection. For extra protection, an extremely durable, waterproof travel case allows you to enjoy worry-free travel experiences and take LCD-X everywhere you want.
"In design, build, and performance, they're the epitome of high-end. The sense of space is enormous, sounding more like speakers in a room than drivers next to your ears."
