Key Features

  • Lower impedance, lighter weight, and updated visual appearance
  • Significantly easier to drive with special 15-ohm voice-coils
  • Strong, lightweight and non-resonant magnesium rings create cleaner output
  • Bold new look with dark sleek aesthetics and gold accents
  • Comfortable suspension-type carbon fiber and premium leather headband

With an impedance rating of just 15 ohms, the LCD-4z can be driven straight from the Aux port of your favorite listening device. If that’s not enough, our cast-magnesium housing yields a design that is lighter-weight than our standard LCD-4, making the 4z well-suited for extended listening sessions.

The Flagship from Audeze

Reimagined headphone design, Audeze has created the new LCD-4z based on the acclaimed LCD-4 planar-magnetic headphones. Fully overhauled visual and technical aspects of this new addition to Audeze's top-tier range include special low impedance voice-coils that are significantly easier to drive than it's predecessor. With lighter, stronger materials and refreshed visual design the LCD-4z headphones are on a path to become legendary.

Engineered with a new magnesium housing to produce a light-weight, visually appealing headphone, the LCD-4z maintains the sound signature of LCD-4. This model does not replace the original 200 ohm LCD-4 but offers a perfect solution for users seeking more headroom and a more portable headphone experience.

Near weightless nano-scale diaphragm of the LCD-4z features Audeze's most advanced diaphragm design with nano-scale film that weighs less than the air it displaces. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. Audeze's cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created a breathtakingly beautiful sounding headphone.


Our Double Fluxor™ Magnetic Array set the record as the most powerful open magnetic circuit ever created, ensuring that our Flagship drivers are able to reproduce any audio signal with unrivaled accuracy and power.


The Nano-scale diaphragms used in the LCD Flagship series are some of the thinnest in the world, providing extremely fast and accurate transient responses which capture every musical detail with precision and near-zero distortion.
