Audeze LCD-XC Headphones
Audeze, the hottest reference-level headphone brand going, just developed its first closed-back design. Many of you have
wanted Audeze sound quality, but needed a more exclusive experience in noisy environments. New Fazor elements allow
these headphones to deliver a performance as close as possible to that of open-back designs. The LCD-XC provides remarkable
3D imaging, greater extension at frequency extremes, and the most natural sense of instruments and voices you've ever heard
from a closed-back 'phone. Seriously cool.
"Exquisitely well built, incredible performance."
– Geoffrey Morrison, Forbes
Audeze's first foray into closed-back design, the LCD-XC
has been in research and development for several years. Now featuring exclusive Fazor technology, the XC
is a fully-enclosed headphone with classic Audeze-quality sound for a more exclusive experience in noisy environments. The 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 the closed-back LCD-XC is the best enclosed headphone experience you'll find. The LCD-XC wood cups are available in hand-worked Bubinga. The enclosures are made from precision-crafted anodized aluminum 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.
