AUDEZE LCD-3 & LCD-2 now on dem

- Author:

“Speaking of über-performance, the Audeze LCD-3 is quite possibly the best headphone ever ... Starting with the bass, the impact and detail is simply otherworldly ... Midrange performance is similarly stellar, with hints of bloom, but never unnatural, never exaggerated ... We were both simply floored by the LCD-3's physicality”

LCD-3 £1595, LCD-2 £795.

LCD-3. The Best in the World

Our flagship headphone has literally been called the best in the world. At the pinnacle of our LCD Collection, the LCD-3 delivers the highest resolution music experience Audeze offers. The LCD-3 must be driven by an external headphone amplifier or integrated amp.

Strongest Driving Force

The LCD-3 has the longest voice coil and the strongest diaphragm driving force yielding the fastest transient response of all the LCD Collection.

Fazor Technology

Audeze’s patent-pending Fazor elements improve clarity, focus and the already spectacular holographic imaging. Two Fazor elements are placed just outside the two magnet structures that surround the diaphragm. They guide and manage the flow of sound around the magnets and are standard on all LCD headphones.

Reviews:

“A joy for those seeking clarity, detail and an intimate relationship with the music.” – POR EMILIO, OLD & NEW SOUND “The LCD-3's natural timbre, especially throughout the midrange, was a thing of beauty and one that is hard to go without once experienced.” – ANDREW ROBINSON, HOMETHEATERREVIEW.COM “Speaking of über-performance, the Audeze LCD-3 is quite possibly the best headphone ever ... Starting with the bass, the impact and detail is simply otherworldly ... Midrange performance is similarly stellar, with hints of bloom, but never unnatural, never exaggerated ... We were both simply floored by the LCD-3's physicality” – JUDE MANSILLA, HEADFI.ORG “They don’t really look like other headphones, and in many ways, they don’t sound like other headphones. No, they sound much, much better ... The word that comes to mind as I listen to the LCD-3s is 'realism.' ... There are some cases where spending more gets you more, and LCD-3s are an example of that.” – GEOFFREY MORRISON, FORBES “I have never heard a set of headphones that got even remotely close to the sound of live music the way this one does and ...if you want the very best, get the LCD-3s.” – STEVE GUTTENBERG, CNET

LCD-2. The Original

The LCD-2 is our original “game-changing” headphone and the one that propelled us into a world of rave reviews.

Beautiful Sound

The LCD-2 is the most forgiving of the LCD Collection due to a magnetic structure that provides extremely low distortion. Fast and dynamic with terrific bass, the midrange - where music lives - is superb as are the golden highs. Our proprietary technology eliminates breakup modes found in other designs and improves clarity.

Focus and Frequency Extension

Patent-pending Fazor elements guide and manage the flow of sound in the headphone for improved focus, greater frequency extension top and bottom and remarkable 3D holographic imaging. The LCD-2 must be driven by an external headphone amplifier or integrated amp.

Fazor Technology

Audeze’s patent-pending Fazor elements improve clarity, focus and the already spectacular holographic imaging. Two Fazor elements are placed just outside the two magnet structures that surround the diaphragm. They guide and manage the flow of sound around the magnets and are standard on all LCD headphones.

Reviews:

“This headphone somehow produces extraordinary clarity, openness, and articulation, but without exaggerated detail or annoyingly overdone treble ... The LCD-2's vivid presentation can only be matched by the very best, and vastly more expensive speaker systems.” – STEVE GUTTENBERG, CNET “The LCD-2's are a champion of low-level detail ... The mono recordings have such an abundance of depth; they feel like stereo ... I will be using them as my main reference standard against which I'll judge all other headphones.” – JEFF DORGAY, TONE AUDIO “Spectacularly yummy ... The bass on these headphones is as good as it gets ... In a number of ways the LCD-2 was the best headphone I'd ever measured.” – TYLL HERTSENS, INNERFIDELITY.COM “They present the music to you rather than shoving it at you, and their way of handling ambience creates a deeply immersive listening experience ... They also rendered much of the ambience that’s captured on the best recordings.” – ANDREA SUNDARAM, SOUNDSTAGEEXPERIENCE.COM
