What is it?
Audeze’s LCD Reference headphones feature the most neutral and accurate drivers ever created. Trusted by industry professionals worldwide for their transparency and seamless translation, the LCD Reference series will allow you to mix with confidence whether you’re in a professional studio, a bedroom, or on top of a volcano…
Even the best studio monitors require an acoustically treated room to achieve peak performance and transparency. The Audeze LCD Reference headphone series takes the room out of the equation by providing studio quality sound you can wear on your head, ensuring you’ll hear each and every detail no matter where you are.
The LCD-X was the first Audeze headphone designed specifically with the needs of music creators in mind. Boasting our most neutral drivers, the LCD-X reveals even minute details with crystal-clear transparency to ensure that your mix translates seamlessly across any speaker system. These drivers are among the most efficient we’ve ever produced, making them a perfect companion to your existing setup no matter if you’re working in a professional studio, on the road, or out of your bedroom.
The LCD-X and XC with Fazor technology have achieved a new dimension in soundstage for Audeze that was not audible in their prior offerings. The sound is not only wider but it is much deeper. The separation between instruments is also much better. The LCD-X because of its open design sounds bigger and better with separation. I can hear further into the recording as there is more air between the instruments. The XC gives the listener more isolation and is obviously better suited for closed listening. The speed and transparency (and now coupled with improved separation) is still top shelf, and yes, Audeze is still the benchmark in this industry. On top of it all, the LCD X and XC always managed to keep me engaged in the music. Once again Audeze has raised the bar for other companies to follow.
How does it work?
Microscopic Detail: Our Planar Magnetic headphone drivers reproduce even the most intimate details with microscopic clarity and transparency. Ultra-thin diaphragms and powerful neodymium magnets work together to create extremely fast transient responses with frequencies extending from 10Hz to 50kHz, ensuring you’ll be able to identify and localize each mix element with ease.
Pinpoint Imaging: Our Ultra-thin diaphragms and powerful Neodymium magnets deliver some of the most accurate sound reproduction of any headphone in the world.
The subtle gradations of dynamics in piano recordings are a real thrill on the LCD-X, and once you hear the difference you’ll start to realize how most high-quality headphones gloss over that aspect of sound reproduction.
