Gorilla wearing LCD-R headphones with Schiit logo
A Special Collaboration Between Audeze & Schiit

Schiit Jotunheim-A is a unique current-drive headphone amplifier, which inspired Audeze to develop the LCD-R headphone. The LCD-R impedance is only 2 ohms, and uses our new patented Parallel-Uniforce technology. We refer to the LCD-R driver as a Ribbon instead of Planar due to the extremely low impedance and over 98% trace coverage of the diaphragm surface.

Jotunheim-A Amplifier

Some Current Schiit. Not Old Schiit.

The LCD-R comes with a customized Schiit Jotunheim model A current-drive headphone amp. Specially modified by Schiit, the Jotunheim-A offers the ideal electrical match to bring out the best performance in our extremely low impedance drivers. The LCD-R is engineered to work exclusively with the included Schiit amp and should not be used with any other amplifier.

So how does it sound?

S-M-O-O-T-H, but very detailed. There's something a little different, and very special about extremely low impedance drivers mated with a dedicated current-drive amplifier. Once you listen, you’ll be convinced. But just in case you’re not, you have 30 days to return both the amp and headphones.

What's a Lichtenberg?

The LCD-R is adorned with our unique Lichtenberg Fractal wood rings. These are handcrafted by shooting precise pulses of high voltage electricity to enhance the natural patterns of the figured Maple. This process makes every pair of LCD-R rings a two-of-a-kind creation.
