LCD-X Headphones By Audeze
The LCD-X is incredibly dynamic, nimble, neutral and transparent, accurately revealing everything on the recording. It quickly became the ultimate tool for recording engineers, musicians and audiophiles alike for its clean, accurate sound. The sense of space is enormous, the midrange and high frequencies offer fantastic detail so you can hear further into the recording with more air and separation between performers.
Audeze headphones have revolutionized the recording industry, leading the way with the Audeze LCD-X (and the closed-back LCD-XC). The calling card of the LCD-X is its exacting precision and linearity. Many of today’s biggest hits are mixed, mastered, and tested with Audeze headphones. Amazingly, the engineers and producers behind these hits had never used headphones in their workflow until they heard Audeze!
“To call the LCD-Xs good would be an understatement on a par with describing the Beatles as popular, because they’re not good. They’re amazing”…from Sound and Vision
Acoustically Engineered for Accuracy
Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers clear and accurate sound that reveals everything on the recording.
Diaphragms Thinner than a Human Hair
We use 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-X headphone is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-built using the finest, most luxurious materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. We closely match the transducers within +/- 1dB (just like the other LCD series models), then match the gorgeous African Bubinga wood earcups. The new LCD steel & leather suspension headband provides comfort for hours of listening pleasure. Choose between genuine leather or leather-free earpads that are filled with carefully selected acoustical foam for best fit and sound. You can pair the LCD-XC with portable devices, but it sounds best driven by a quality amplifier.
Industrial Design by Audeze
You’ll be thrilled by how the LCD-X looks and sounds; it’s imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful earcups that are manufactured at their 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 the Audeze factory, and are not adjustable. Do not attempt to adjust these screws, as damage may result that is not covered by warranty.

“Beautifully-finished and equally beautiful-sounding, deliciously smooth, unambiguously stable and accurate imaging with a lack of coloration in the midrange and treble.”
John Atkinson, Stereophile
“The subtle gradations of dynamics in piano recordings are a real thrill… you’ll realize how most headphones gloss over that aspect of sound reproduction.”
Steve Guttenberg, CNET
“The sound is wide and deep… it sounds bigger and better with superb separation. The mids offer simply fantastic detail and contouring that you just don’t get in 99.5 per cent of headphones.”
Andrew Williams, Trusted Reviews
“The sense of space is enormous, sounding more like speakers in a room than drivers next to your ears.”
Geoffrey Morrison, Forbes
“I can hear further into the recording as there’s more air between the instruments. The recording had me so engrossed with the performance that it brought tears to my eyes.”
Frank Iacone, Headphone Guru
“The smallest details, the shortest transients, were all a clear and well defined as I could imagine possible. There was not a hint of over-sibilance.”
John E. Johnson, Secrets of Home Theater and HighFi
