SINE

World’s First On-Ear Planar Magnetic Headphone

The SINE headphones are the next step up for many listeners. It’s lightweight, folds flat for easy travelling. They sound like a much larger model even though they’re the lightest of all Audeze headphones.

Audeze Technology

The 80 x 70mm planar magnetic driver has the largest surface area of any on-ear headphone in its class. They’re easy to drive with Audeze’s exclusive Fluxor Magnetic technology, nano-scale diaphragms, and advanced voice-coil technology that allows a wide variety of portable players and headphone amps to immerse you in sound.


 

EL-8 Titanium

World’s First Headphones with Fully Integrated Apple Lightning Cable

The EL-8 Titanium headphones are Apple MFi certified and provide Apple users with true high resolution uncompromised audio – not just for music playback, but for voice calls as well. The Titanium EL-8 feature the same iconic industrial design by Designworks, a BMW group subsidiary.

Stunning 24-bit Audio for Music and Voice

The EL-8 Titanium headphones come with the exclusive Audeze Cipher lightning cable that streams a complete 24-bit digital signal through a high quality DSP and DAC to offer better sound quality. The built in microphone can be used for phone calls and is SIRI compatible. An accompanying Audeze app can be used to apply EQ and sound presets. For non- Apple device compatibility, the headphones also include a standard analog cable.


 

EL-8 Open-Back

The world’s most advanced planar magnetic headphone. Featuring patent-pending Fluxor™, Uniforce™ technology.

The EL-8 is flexible, portable, lightweight and loaded with new technology for extreme performance. It works beautifully with most portable players and phones. Designed by Designworks, a BMW group subsidiary and available in open and closed-back models, they're built with superb craftsmanship, wood veneer accents, and enormous attention to detail. The EL-8 is possessed of the world's most advanced planar magnetic technology with sound quality unheard of in this or any other price category.

 

 

EL-8 Closed-Back

The same extreme performance in a closed-back model for greater privacy and isolation from the environment.

The closed-back EL-8 offers all the benefits of the open-back EL-8 — flexible, lightweight and loaded with new technology — while isolating the listener and reducing ambient noise as no sound escapes the earcups. The EL-8 closed-back is also sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and smartphones, but an external amplifier produces better results. They're built with superb craftsmanship, wood veneer accents and enormous attention to detail.

 

 

LCD-4

The New Reference Standard
Planar Magnetic Headphone

The LCD-4, Audeze’s new reference headphone, is the result of dedicated research and development and advancements in materials science. It features our amazingly thin nano-grade diaphragms and unique Double Fluxor magnet arrays for the most powerful magnetic flux density in existence, an incredible 1.5 Tesla! It also features a new comfortable suspension-type carbon fiber and leather headband and delivers breathtaking high resolution sound, imaging and transparency, with exciting dynamics. It sounds incredibly open in the midrange and treble, and coupled with Audeze’s powerful bass removes the boundaries between artist and listener. It outperforms any other in its class like electrostatics or dynamic driver headphones. The LCD-4 is the most advanced planar magnetic technology to date.

 

 

LCD-3

State-of-the-Art
Planar Magnetic Headphone

Audeze’s flagship headphone has literally been called the best in the world. The LCD-3 has the longest voice coil and the strongest diaphragm driving force that yields the fastest transient response of all the LCD designs. At the pinnacle of our LCD Collection, the LCD-3 delivers the highest resolution music experience we offer. Patent-pending Fazor elements guide and manage the flow of sound in the headphone for improved clarity and focus, greater frequency extension top and bottom, and remarkable 3D holographic imaging. The LCD-3 must be driven by an external headphone amp or integrated amplifier.

 

 

LCD-XC

High Performance Closed-Back
Planar Magnetic Headphone

For a long while customers asked us for a closed-back version of our headphones. We had to design a new transducer that was subsequently placed in the LCD-X. The closed-back LCD-XC offers all the benefits of the LCD Collection’s open designs but closed-backs isolate the listener and reduce ambient noise. The bass is phenomenal and if you’re a DJ or studio engineer the LCD-XC is definitely the headphones for you. Like all Audeze headphones the LCD-XC is equipped with Fazor technology it’s sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and the better smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results.

 

 

LCD-X

Reference-level
Planar Magnetic Headphone

The LCD-X is a very efficient headphone that extracts the maximum power out of low-powered amplifiers and portable devices. It’s the most neutral of the LCD Collection and favored by recording engineers and musicians alike for its fast, dynamic and accurate playback. Our proprietary technology eliminates the breakup modes found in other designs improving focus and clarity. Patent-pending Fazor elements guide and manage the flow of sound for improved frequency extension and a more enveloping soundstage. The X and XC are sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and the better smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results.

 

 

LCD-2

The Original High Performance
Planar Magnetic Headphone

The LCD-2 is our original game-changing headphone, the design that catapulted Audeze into the spotlight. It’s the most forgiving of bad recordings and presents a beautiful sound with the same powerful bass as all Audeze headphones, a tonally-rich midrange and a simply beautiful treble region. The addition of our patent-pending Fazor technology made the LCD-2 sound more dynamic and focused top to bottom. It takes a real effort not to enjoy music on these headphones. The LCD-2 must be driven by an external headphone amp or integrated amp.

 

 

THE KING

Class-A Hybrid Tube/MOSFET Headphone Amp

It began when the Audeze team met the legendary electronics designer Bascom King in his design lab. Bascom has designed acclaimed amplifiers for Infinity, Marantz, Constellation Audio, PS Audio and others. He demoed a prototype headphone amplifier that so impressed everyone that they signed Bascom on the spot to develop the new headphone amplifier exclusively for Audeze.

 

 

DECKARD

Class-A Amplifier / DAC

A powerhouse of a headphone amplifier combined with a high-performance DAC, the Deckard drives any headphone with power to spare. The DAC has impressive specs and handles 16 to 32-bits and sampling rates from 44.1kHz to 384kHz. There’s a volume control and front-panel switches to choose gain and input so you can also use the Deckard as a great line-level preamp. The sound is exciting and dynamic with beautifully rendered tonal colors that make music come alive.
