Special Design

By combining the award-winning LCD-X with hand selected wood cups and special sound absorbing materials, Audeze gives you the widest soundstage of any closed-back headphone combined with a completely immersive listening experience. And that bass – it has a palpable, physical quality that no other headphone offers.

Sharing the same transducer design as the LCD-X, the closed-back XC offers all the benefits of a planar magnetic design 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. If you’re a DJ or studio engineer these headphones are for you! We updated the drivers in January 2016, and the XC remains far and away the best-sounding closed back headphone available - a truly immersive listening experience.

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.
