The LCD-XC Closed-Back Headphone 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 closed-back design offers all the benefits of a planar magnetic headphone with increased isolation and greatly reduced ambient noise for a private and powerful listening experience.
Your favorite music erupts from a silent background taking on a life of its own. 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.
The LCD-XC headphones are Audeze's first closed back headphone. Researched and developed for many years, it features exclusive Fazor technology. We recommend this classic headphone with Audeze-quality sound for a more exclusive experience in noisy environments.
ENGINEERED AND HANDCRAFTED IN THE AUDEZE 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. The new LCD steel & leather suspension headband provides comfort for hours of listening pleasure. You can pair the LCD-XC with portable devices, but it sounds best driven by a quality amplifier.
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
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.

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 to minimize the risk of damage, which is not covered under warranty
