Accuracy, Transparency, and Efficiency

LCD-X leverages patented Audeze technologies, including Ultra-Thin Uniforce™ diaphragms, Fazor waveguides, and powerful neodymium magnets to deliver extremely accurate and detailed sound. The sophisticated planar magnetic drivers achieve a high efficiency with low impedance, such that LCD-X can deliver great sound from nearly any device with a headphone output. Together, these innovations enable audio professionals to efficiently get their mix done right in a variety of settings.

Designed for Comfort

Audeze has improved the LCD-X over the years, lowering the weight and increasing comfort. It features a suspension headband for even weight distribution, and highly-cushioned premium earpads for support. The neutral tuning and low distortion prevent listening fatigue, so those late-night sessions never have to end.

What Music Producers and Sound Engineers Think of LCD-X

- Bill Schnee, Musician, Mastering Engineer and Producer

"I have been working daily with the LCD-X... I would be lost without them!... the mixes I have done on them seem to translate really well, they give me a really solid and reliable reference that I find to be invaluable."
- Iain Cook of Chvrches

"The LCD-X are the first headphones I've found with the accuracy, low frequency response and soundstage to truly replace a studio monitoring environment."

- Scott Hansen of Tycho

"The LCD-X’s were stunning in presenting the range and sonic transparency of what we needed to hear for confidence we were on the right track... "

- Brent Burge, Oscar winning sound editor

"I believe that headphones like the LCD-X ... lets you be in an environment that you hear properly, so that when it goes out it sounds great... mastering or not."

- Marc Daniel Nelson, Mix Engineer and Producer

"My Audeze LCD-X helped me to be even more mobile while mixing... They solve the usual problems we are all facing when mixing on headphones."
