All the Benefits Plus Privacy

The closed-back LCD-XC offers all the benefits of the LCD Collection’s open designs and isolates the listener while reducing ambient noise. No sound escapes the earcups.

Easy to Drive

Like all Audeze headphones the LCD-XC is equipped with Fazor technology and is sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and the better smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results.

Improved Focus and Clarity

Fast, dynamic and accurate sound using our proprietary technology that eliminates breakup modes found in other designs and improves focus and clarity.

“I can't offer a higher headphone recommendation. Audeze has rewritten the rules of engagement again ”
– MICHAEL MERCER, POSITIVE FEEDBACK
 
“From the butter-soft leather, to the gorgeous wood earcups, they exude luxury in a way most headphones don’t ... The Audeze LCD-XC’s are exquisitely well built and offer incredible performance ... Those two things define a good luxury item.”
– GEOFFREY MORRISON, FORBES
 
“In our collective opinions, the LCD-X and LCD-XC are nothing short of the very best headphones from Audeze ... A fantastically large, holographic-like soundstage ... The LCD-XC captures the signature LCD sound in a pair of closed-back headphones.”
– MERCER, WARREN CHI, MICHAEL LLANG, AUDIO360.COM
 
“Having created a new driver for the LCD-XC, Audeze went on to apply the driver in a new open-back model, called the LCD-X ... The result is a closed-back ‘phone that offers plenty of noise isolation, yet that retains the open, energetic, and highly articulate sound of the LCD-3.”
– CHRIS MARTENS, HIFI+
