Inside Audeze #1

Massimo, a customer in Italy, emailed us a few weeks ago asking for pictures of the Audeze offices. We’ve had a few similar requests and so we decided to show you what we love doing here at Audeze. Here is a first in the series of Inside Audeze posts.

Our first design was the LCD-1. We used an off-the-shelf headphone and installed our own drivers, then showed the hybrid at CanJam 2009. The response was amazing and many Head-Fi enthusiasts encouraged us to make an even better headphone.

We started designing the LCD-2 in late 2009. Our initial driver and enclosure design for the LCD-2 was rectangular. After a number of renderings we showed the design to our trusted woodworker Jesse. Unfortunately he thought it would be too difficult to make.

We also wanted to make a simple headband that would be very comfortable and settled on a one-piece bent steel spring.

But that also proved too difficult to manufacture so it was back to the drawing board. Finally we came up with the current and comfortable design.
