Music Creator Special

Limited-time offer of $1199

Audeze headphones have revolutionized the recording industry. Many of today’s biggest hits were mixed, mastered, and tested with our headphones. Amazingly, the engineers and producers behind these hits had never used headphones in their workflow until they heard Audeze!

For a limited time, we’re offering music creators and enthusiasts everywhere the opportunity to experience the award-winning sound of the LCD-X at the price of $1199. This Creator Package gives you all the great music of the LCD-X, but does not include the travel case (the headphones are otherwise exactly the same).

LCD-X Headphone

The LCD-X is incredibly dynamic, nimble, neutral and transparent, accurately revealing everything on the recording. It quickly became the ultimate tool for recording engineers, musicians and audiophiles alike for its clean, accurate sound. The sense of space is enormous, the midrange and high frequencies offer fantastic detail so you can hear further into the recording with more air and separation between performers.

"To call the LCD-Xs good would be an understatement on a par with describing the Beatles as popular, because they’re not good. They’re amazing."

Exclusive LCD-X planar magnetic technology

Acoustically engineered for accuracy
Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers clear and accurate sound that reveals everything on the recording.

Diaphragms thinner than a human hair
We use space-age materials in an ultra thin diaphragm four times larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.

Near zero distortion
Double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion.

Internal soundwaves
Patented Fazor Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance for a more accurate waveform.

Engineered and handcrafted in our California factory

The LCD-X headphone is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-crafted using the finest, most luxurious materials combined with Audeze’s cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. The new LCD steel & leather suspension headband provides comfort for hours of listening pleasure. Choose between genuine leather or leather-free earpads that are filled with carefully selected acoustical foam for best fit and sound. The LCD-X will play on portable devices but sounds best driven by a quality amplifier for best results.

"Beautifully-finished and equally beautiful-sounding, deliciously smooth, unambiguously stable and accurate imaging with a lack of coloration in the midrange and treble."

John Atkinson, Stereophile

 

"The subtle gradations of dynamics in piano recordings are a real thrill... you'll realize how most headphones gloss over that aspect of sound reproduction."

Steve Guttenberg, CNET

 

"The sound is wide and deep... it sounds bigger and better with superb separation. The mids offer simply fantastic detail and contouring that you just don’t get in 99.5 per cent of headphones."

Andrew Williams, Trusted Reviews

 

"The sense of space is enormous, sounding more like speakers in a room than drivers next to your ears."

Geoffrey Morrison, Forbes

 

"I can hear further into the recording as there's more air between the instruments. The recording had me so engrossed with the performance that it brought tears to my eyes."

Frank Iacone, Headphone Guru

 

"The smallest details, the shortest transients, were all a clear and well defined as I could imagine possible. There was not a hint of over-sibilance."

John E. Johnson, Secrets of Home Theater and HighFi

Listen Responsibly 

To avoid damage to your headphones and/or hearing, ensure the volume on your player is turned down before connecting your headphones. After placing headphones on your head, gradually turn up the volume until you reach a comfortable listening level. Exposure to excessive sound levels can cause gradual hearing loss and damage your headphones.

Excessive power levels can damage your headphones. Be sure to stay within the rated power levels of 5W RMS / 15W PEAK to minimize the risk of damage, which is not covered under warranty.
