LCD-2 Headphone

The beautifully handcrafted LCD-2, the planar magnetic headphone that put Audeze on the high-end map, delivers audiophile quality, low-distortion sound that articulates the power and nuance of your favorite music. The LCD-2 is the most forgiving of poor recordings in the LCD Collection with a beautiful, musically rich presentation that communicates the warmth, power and glory of music.

"In a number of ways it was the best headphone I'd ever measured."

 

Exclusive LCD-2 planar magnetic technology

Acoustically engineered for beautiful sound
Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers an astonishingly lifelike sound.

Diaphragms thinner than a human hair
We use space-age materials in a near weightless diaphragm that’s 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.

Nearly double the magnetic driving force
Patented Fluxor Magnet Arrays focus the magnetic flux nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for even lower distortion and greater accuracy.

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

Engineered and handcrafted in the USA

The LCD-2 is thoroughly engineered for long-term comfort and beautiful sound. We closely match our planar transducers, and match our beautiful factory-made wood rings by grain and color. We use Shedua wood from tropical west Africa It’s not on the watchlist and is reported by the IUCN as being a species of least concern. We also match the earpads by leather texture and color. You can choose lambskin leather or Microsuede headbands and earcups that are filled with foam carefully selected for best sound and contribute to the level of comfort during long listening sessions. Pair the LCD-2 with a quality headphone amplifier or integrated amp for best sound.

Industrial design by Audeze

You’ll be proud of how the LCD-2 sounds and it’s also imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful hand-made rings. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. Our cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created an astonishingly beautiful sounding headphone.

"The LCD-2 has tremendous dynamic punch, bass power and stellar resolution. The Fazor model is more detailed and spacious than the original. I really like the more open sound, but in the end these comparisons between old and new models just renewed my appreciation for the Audeze sound."

Steve Guttenberg, CNET

 

"In a number of ways it was the best headphone I'd ever measured."

Tyll Hertsens, InnerFidelity

 

"The Audeze LCD-2s have become my ‘go-to’ headphones for verifying my mixes. The amount of detail retrieval is amazing!"

Erick Labson, Sr. Mastering Engineer, Grammy Award Winner

 

"Lively, fresher, more natural treble region helps make everything sound more real."

Mike, Headfonia

 

"If you’re looking for natural sound that competes with many $1000+ top of the line headphones, look no further!"

Michael Mercer, Headphone Guru

 

"Frankly, these headphones feel the way that the interior of a Rolls-Royce automobile looks—in a word, sumptuous."

Chris Martens, AV Guide
