"Whenever I put these headphones on, I get a dopamine surge" Says TapeOp of LCD-5"

Geoff Stanfield - Tape Op

These headphones are undoubtedly aimed at audiophiles, and more specifically, audiophiles with some extra coin. But their use in the studio cannot (and should not) be ignored. Critical listening, pinpoint accuracy for panning, and sound staging are quite enjoyable with the LCD- 5s. In addition, having a dependable pair of high-quality reference headphones is invaluable for professional mixers who travel or engineers who work in apartments or small spaces where mixing on monitors is not an option.Whenever I put these headphones on, I get a dopamine surge and am reminded of the joys of listening to music and hearing it as the makers intended. If I had one suggestion for Audeze regarding the LCD-5s, it would be that they come with a warning: After listening to music on these headphones, playback on any other headphones will be a disappointment or compromise.
