Audeze – LCD-2 Headphones
The beautifully handcrafted LCD-2 is the planar magnetic headphone that put Audeze on the high-end map. It elivers audiophile quality, low-distortion sound that articulates the power and nuance of your favorite music. The LCD-2 presents a beautiful, musically-rich presentation that communicates the warmth, power and glory of music.
There are two models of the LCD-2, the Fazor model and the Non-Fazor. The Fazor improves the definition and clarity, while the original Non-Fazor model is more full-bodied, but slightly less defined. The video below does an excellent job of highlighting the differences and tradeoffs.
Acoustically Engineered for Accuracy
Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers a clear and accurate sound that reveals everything on the recording.
Diaphragms Thinner than a Human Hair
Audeze uses space-age materials in an ultra-thin diaphragm 4X larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution, and improved imaging.
Near Zero Distortion
Double-sided magnet arrays deliver a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion.
Patented Fazor™ elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonances for a more accurate waveform.
Engineered and handcrafted in our California, USA
The LCD-2 is thoroughly engineered for long-term comfort and beautiful sound. The planar transducers are closely matched, as well as the beautiful factory-made wood rings, by grain and color. Shedua wood from tropical west Africa is used; it’s not on the international environmental watchlist. Also matched are the earpads by leather texture and color. You can choose lambskin leather or Microsuede headbands and earcups that are filled with foam carefully selected for best sound and contribute to the level of comfort during long listening sessions.
Industrial Design by Audeze
You’ll be thrilled by how the LCD-2 looks and sounds; it’s imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful earcups that are manufactured at the Audeze facility. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. Cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created a breathtakingly beautiful sounding headphone.
To avoid damage to your headphones and/or hearing, ensure the volume on your player is turned down before connecting your headphones. After placing headphones on your head, gradually turn up the volume until you reach a comfortable listening level. Exposure to excessive sound levels can cause gradual hearing loss and damage your headphones.
Excessive power levels can damage your headphones. Be sure to stay within the rated power levels of 5W RMS / 15W PEAK to minimize the risk of damage, which is not covered under warranty.
Note: The tensioned set screws in the sides of the headband’s adjustment blocks are pre-set and glued in our factory, and are not adjustable. Do not attempt to adjust these screws, as damage may result that is not covered by warranty.

“In a number of ways it was the best headphone I’d ever measured.”…from Inner Fidelity
“The LCD-2 has tremendous dynamic punch, bass power and stellar resolution. The Fazor model is more detailed and spacious than the original. I really like the more open sound, but in the end these comparisons between old and new models just renewed my appreciation for the Audeze sound.”
Steve Guttenberg, CNET
“In a number of ways it was the best headphone I’d ever measured.”
“The Audeze LCD-2s have become my ‘go-to’ headphones for verifying my mixes. The amount of detail retrieval is amazing!”
