"I was skeptical. How can headphones be worth $1,200? Do they sound much better than headphones, which are 10 times cheaper? The short answer is yes."

Cristof Bear, Music Manta

 

"These Audeze LCD-X are by far the best pair of headphones ever to grace my head. The sound is simply stunning, like having a studio wrapped around my head. The headphones sound balanced and revealing from the lowest lows to the highest highs. I could hear as low as 30-40 Hz through the Audeze. I heard little distortion, compared to other headphones or my monitors. The imaging is top notch, and I was able to discern sounds across a wider stereo field, which almost sounded surround. What impressed me the most are the transients. Attacks and decays of short sounds were extremely accurate.

The Audeze LCD-X are a marvel of technology, translated into one of the best headphones for music, mixing and mastering."
