Made for Music Creators

Introducing LCD-X, the first headphone designed by Audeze specifically with the needs of music creators in mind. Boasting Audeze's most neutral drivers, the LCD-X reveals even minute details with crystal-clear transparency to ensure that your mix translates seamlessly across any speaker system. These drivers are among the most efficient Audeze has ever produced, making them a perfect companion to your existing setup.

Specifically designed, low impedance transducers of the LCD-X will work with a wide variety of driving sources. From portable players to studio use, the LCD-X provides high volume without a headphone amplifier even though all LCD-series products benefit from a high-quality amp. Proprietary Fazor elements in the Audeze LCD-X help guide and manage the flow of sound in the headphone.

Audeze's LCD-X earcups are made from polished black anodized aluminum with sloped earpads of premium leather-free material. The earpads are designed with specially-crafted foam offering perfect firmness and absolute acoustic balance.

Balanced Neutral Sound

Favoured by recording engineers and musicians alike for its fast, dynamic and accurate sound. Audeze proprietary technology eliminates the breakup modes found in other designs and improves focus and clarity.

Enveloping Soundstage

Patent-pending Fazor elements guide and manage the flow of sound for improved frequency extension and balanced soundstage. LCD-X is sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and better smartphones. An external amplifier produces improved results with heightened sonic delivery.

Microscopic Detail

Our Planar Magnetic drivers reproduce even the most intimate details with microscopic clarity, ensuring that your FINAL final mix is exactly as you intend it to be.

Pinpoint Imaging

Our Ultra-thin diaphragms and powerful Neodymium magnets deliver some of the most accurate sound reproduction of any headphone in the world.

Proven and Trusted

Audeze headphones are the preferred solution for audio professionals and can be found in some of the world's most prestigious production houses.

Designed and Handcrafted in Southern California

Each LCD-X driver is precision-crafted by hand in Audeze's Southern California facility. Using Audeze's patented engineering techniques and state of the art laser-etching technology, Audeze put great care into each step of the manufacturing process to ensure Audeze headphones meet the exacting audio and production quality standards.
