Audeze CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram

Our Take

The LCD-5 sets a new standard for accuracy using a new driver design with Audeze’s own patent-pending Parallel UniforceTM voice coils and new magnet assembly. LCD-5 represents a completely new design made specifically for minimal reflections, improved frequency response, and a more open yet accurate soundstage. LCD-5’s impedance is 14 Ohms, sensitivity is 90dB, and it weighs just 420 grams (1/3 less than the LCD-4!). Handcrafted in California, USA, the LCD-5 has been meticulously engineered to provide unmatched audio for industry professionals and audiophiles alike!

Featuring Audeze’s patented core technologies, and new acoustically designed leather earpads, an improved and luxurious carbon fiber suspension headband, deep “tortoise shell” acetate rings, all-new magnesium housing, plus their latest premium audio cable made with high-purity copper, and an aluminum travel case.


  • New Parallel Uniforce™ diaphragms and Fluxor™ Magnets provide powerful sound, unparalleled sonic detail, and incredible accuracy without increasing the impedance.
  • New internally sloped earpads that help to reduce unwanted resonances and interior reflections.
  • Newly designed Fazors that are optimized to reduce diffractions.
  • Specially tuned directional OCC high-purity copper cable, composed of strands that provide a low capacitance and a low resistance path to maintain unsurpassed clarity and precision.
  • Fully re-designed magnesium frame provides rigidity and ultra-light weight.

About Audeze

The planar-magnetic driver design used by Audeze moves a large ultra-thin driver between magnet arrays, capable of great air movement. This helps create the signature powerful bass that Audeze headphones have become known for, in addition to a natural, extended treble.
