LCD2 Rosewood Price Increase

The Caribbean Rosewood ear cup option offered with our LCD2 headphones is arguably one of the most visual representations of Audeze’s unique and sophisticated approached to handcrafted design. After all, the Caribbean Rosewood LCD2s are what put Audeze on the map.

Unfortunately, due to both the availability of rosewood and the increased production cost of the wood itself, we are forced to raise the amount of the LCD2 Rosewood to a new retail price of $1,145.

While this increase has been a difficult decision for Audeze, it has allowed us to further re-evaluate our manufacturing ideals. As such, we will donate a portion of all future sales of the LCD2 Rosewood to Eden Projects in order to help preserve our precious resources.

Note: While the price of the LCD2 Rosewood has increased the LCD2 Bamboo remains at $995.

Audeze in Playboy

The LCD3 was recently mentioned in Playboy's 'MANTRACK: The Best of Everything.'

Playboy: "Luxury Listen - The most opulent headphones we've ever seen? The Audeze LCD3 with zebrawood earcups, lambskin cushions and 6.17-square-inch planar magnetic drivers that deliver the best audio we've heard from a headphone, they're like a Ferrari for your ears."

Anime and Fan Art

From time to time we receive emails regarding fan art for Audeze products. Interestingly enough, when we designed the LCD3 last year, we crafted a small anime friendly manual in a comic book style to go with each headphone. Unfortunately, due to time constraints the comic-book idea was scrapped. However, you can see some of the drawings from the initial concepts below. We’d like to thank Votexblast and Louis who created some absolutely stunning images.

LCD3 Update

Thank you to those who have voiced your concerns regarding LCD3 headphone issues. Some of our LCD3 headphones did, in fact, exhibit intermittent reliability issues, and we have now completed a thorough analysis of the problem. We found the cause and have worked diligently with our vendor to eliminate this issue completely.

While only a very small percentage of our recent LCD3s were affected, we want to reassure our customers that we stand behind our product.  Therefore, we are extending the warranty on all our headphones from the date of purchase to a full three years. This will also be applied retroactively. For more details, please see our website: You may also contact us at with any additional questions or concerns.

Your feedback is and always will be much appreciated! Again, thank you for your patience and continued support.
