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.

Our Take

The LCD-X is an Audeze classic, with their signature bass heft, and a more studio-focused midrange and high end that balances a more neutral, open sound than the LCD-2/3/4 series.  The latest version features Audeze’s new lighter suspension style headband!  Though the LCD-X is a fairly efficient headphone, we still recommend a high-quality headphone amp to hear it at its best, like the Gilmore Lite mk2 or Pico Power.
