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.
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.
The LCD-XC headphone is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-built using the finest, most luxurious materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. We closely match the transducers within +/- 1dB (just like the other LCD series models), then match the gorgeous African Bubinga wood earcups. The new LCD steel & leather suspension headband provides comfort for hours of listening pleasure. Choose between genuine leather or leather-free earpads that are filled with carefully selected 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.
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. Our cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created a breathtakingly beautiful sounding headphone.
About Audeze Headphones
Audeze was founded in Southern California by Sankar Thiagasamudram and Alexander Rosson, along with engineers Peter Uka and Dragoslav Colich, combining NASA materials technology with vast experience in planar driver design, to deliver headphones that immediately took the audio world by storm. The LCD-2 quickly became an audiophile favorite, and the LCD-X elevated the company’s reputation in the professional audio world.
Audeze of late has branched out, now offering portable in-ears with their signature planar drivers, as well as a new gaming headset. Audeze continues to push the planar magnetic driver technology forward, increasing efficiency and magnet strength to deliver top-end headphones like their latest, the easy-to-drive LCD-4z.
The LCD-XC is the definitive basshead’s closed headphone. It packs a powerful punch down low, complemented by Audeze’s trademark intimate midrange and smooth treble. The wooden earcups are gorgeous, if weighty, and the sound isolation is very good.
