- Exclusive LCD-3 planar magnetic technology is acoustically engineered for accuracy and Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers an astonishingly life-like sound.
- Diaphragms thinner than a human hair employing space-age materials are used to fabricate an ultra thin diaphragm, four times larger than typical headphones, delivering fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
- Near zero distortion double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion. Internal soundwavesPatented Fazor™ Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance producing a more accurate waveform.
- Designed, engineered and handcrafted in the USA, the LCD-3 is thoroughly engineered for long-term comfort and spacious, realistic sound.
- Matched beautiful, factory-made wood rings, by grain and color. Tropical West African Zebrano hardwood — known as Zebra wood. The earpads and leather are closely matched by texture and color. The refined LCD steel & leather suspension headband provides comfort for hours of listening pleasure.

Industrial Design by Audeze
You’ll be dazzled by how the LCD-3 looks and sounds. It’s imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful hand-made rings. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. Cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created an astonishingly 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.
