Highly Efficient

The LCD-X is an extremely efficient headphone that extracts the maximum power out of low-powered amplifiers and portable devices.

Amazingly Neutral

The LCD-X is the most neutral of all the LCD Collection. That’s why it’s favored by recording engineers and musicians alike for its fast, dynamic and accurate sound. Our proprietary technology eliminates the breakup modes found in other designs and improves focus and clarity.

Enveloping Soundstage

Patent-pending Fazor elements guide and manage the flow of sound for improved frequency extension and a more enveloping soundstage. The X is sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and the better smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results.

Fazor Technology

Audeze’s patent-pending Fazor elements improve clarity, focus and the already spectacular holographic imaging. Two Fazor elements are placed just outside the two magnet structures that surround the diaphragm. They guide and manage the flow of sound around the magnets and are standard on all LCD headphones.
