What is it?
The LCD-MX4 represents the fusion of our Flagship and Reference lines. Featuring our iconic X driver together with our patented Double Fluxor magnet array and Uniforce voice coil technology, the LCD-MX4 brings superior detail and clarity to our most neutral and translatable driver design. Whether it’s that sparkle in the vocals or that cut in the transients, the MX4 will reveal those critical details necessary for you to perfect your mix.
The LCD-MX4 is an open-back, circumaural planar magnetic headphone that uses an extremely low-mass 106mm Uniforce diaphragm patterned after the diaphragm of the LCD-4. Like the LCD-4, the LCD-MX4 is fitted with an extremely powerful Double Fluxor™ magnet array that is essentially a more powerful version of the LCD-X magnet array. One key differentiator, however, is that the LCD-MX4 foregoes the Fazor™ waveguide elements used in both the LCD-4 and the LCD-X. The end result is a headphone that offers transient speed and transparency reminiscent of the LCD-4, but that enjoys significantly higher sensitivity (a stonking 105dB, which is higher than any other LCD model).
How does it work?
Where the LCD-4 uses massive wood ear cup frames fitted with heavy slotted metal outward-facing driver protection plates, the LCD-MX4 uses a more streamlined and lightweight one-piece ear cup and vented rear cover made of magnesium. This new ear cup/rear cover structure not only looks lighter and more svelte than the ear cups and rear covers of other LCD models; it feels noticeably lighter, especially when the wearer suddenly turns his or her head to the side. Like the LCD-4, the LCD-MX4 uses a sturdy but light carbon fibre headband frame, beneath which is suspended a nicely made leather headband support strap.
Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers clear and accurate sound that reveals everything on the recording. 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. Double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion. Patented Fluxor Magnet Arrays focus the magnetic flux nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for even lower distortion and greater accuracy. Patented Fazor Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance for a more accurate waveform.
The headphones ship with a high quality set of braided signal cables with mini-XLR fittings on the headphone end and a 6.35mm headphone plug on the amplifier end. In addition, the headphones come with a short 6.35mm-to-3.5mm mini-plug adapter cable that is handy for users whose headphone amplifiers (or PCs, tablets, or smartphones) only provide 3.5mm mini-jack outputs.
