Audeze LCD2 Introduction

Santa Monica CA, 05-02-2010

Audeze is proud to introduce our LCD2 heapdhones designed for audiophiles, recording/mixing engineers (as reference headphones) and music enthusiasts alike.
The LCD2s are in production and will start shipping to customers on May 10th, 2010. We are in the process of contacting people who have emailed / pre-ordered the product.
The LCD2 housing is designed and custom built from hand selected Caribbean Rosewood. The wood was chosen not only for its aesthetics, but also to enhance the quality of the sound where the wood offers a unique coloration and graining. The LCD2 ear pads are designed to optimally recreate the entire pro audio frequency range. The sloped ear pad design allows us to faithfully reproduce the detail and clarity for bass, midrange and treble. The ear pads are made of premium lambskin leather with specially selected foam to offer the right amount of firmness.

Audeze LCD2 Waterfall Plots

Reposted from January 2010.

Audeze has been able to create an incredibly low frequency extension on our LCD2 relative to other headphones. The following measurements were performed using the Neumann KU 100 Dummy head. Below are the waterfall plots, low frequency extension and the driver impedance.
1. Waterfall Plot of the LCD2.
2. Impedance driver of the LCD2 driver.
3. Low-frequency response of LCD2 compared with other headphones.

CanJam09 Impressions


I must say it was a pleasure meeting everyone at CanJam 09.  When we saw the post from John about CanJam 09, we were debating if we were at a position, where we could show it. John was very helpful, allowing us to book half a table. We were very pleased with the response we got from our listeners and we also made some new friends.
We came on saturday morning realized we forgot to bring a power extender. Our neighbour IpodPJ graciously loaned us a power strip.  One headphone wasat our table and the other one was floating around. Sachu loaned us his CTH amplifier.
We are very happy for all the kind words and encouragement. The response gives us the impetus to put in more effort into improving our headphone, working out the kinks and getting it out of the door. Overall it was a wonderful weekend.
