    • Enhanced magnetic circuit provides more detail and resolution vs. LCD-2, etc
    • Can be driven by almost any source device due to low impedance circuit
    • Ultra-low distortion is inaudible at nearly any SPL
    • Enhanced transparency and accuracy in sound reproduction
    • Extremely fast transient response and wide frequency response

    This is our most popular headphone, driven by its popularity with audiophiles, but especially music producers and mastering engineers. Its overall tonality is neutral, which helps ensure that music mixed on, it will translate across most speaker systems. The LCD-X's excellent transient response and accuracy allow producers and mastering engineers to hear all the details in their mixes. And with the LCD-X, you can hear their recordings as they intended.

    Taking the Room out of the Equation

    The class-leading resolution and impressively low distortion makes the LCD-X comparable to high end speaker systems, without requiring large, expensive acoustic room treatments. When used with Audeze Reveal+ to create an AI-generated map of your own hearing, the LCD-X puts you inside renowned studios, letting you mix consistently and efficiently from anywhere.

    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.

    Many say the LCD-X is the most neutral of the LCD Collection; they’re used by sound engineers and musicians to create the most accurate recordings. Just Google Manny Marroquin, Stuart Hawkes, Frank Filipetti, Ed Cherney, George Massenburg, Elliot Scheiner, or Brent Burge for a few examples of our Audeze users. They do a great job of translating your mix to the real world. The X and the closed-back XC are sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and some of the better smartphones, but you’ll enjoy better sound with an external amplifier. Its impedance is 20 ohms.


    Audeze LCD-X Planar Magnetic Headphones with Leather Earpads


    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 waveguide

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