Exclusive LCD-XC Planar Magnetic Technology
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. Audeze 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. 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 Audeze's California Factory
The LCD-XC headphone is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-built using the finest, most luxurious materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. Audeze closely matches the transducers within +/- 1dB (just like the other LCD series models), then match the gorgeous African Bubinga wood earcups. You may choose real leather or our leather-free earpads/headband option. No matter which you chose, the earpads are filled with carefully chosen 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 proud of how the LCD-XC looks and sounds; it’s imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful earcups that are manufactured at our facility. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. The cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created a breathtakingly beautiful sounding headphone.
