Audeze has quickly become an industry leader with their audiophile planar magnetic reference headphones. The LCD-2 headphones were the first model with the planar magnetic and Fazor technology to gain widespread acclaim. Their deep, low end bass response, smooth midrange, and beautiful clear highs provide a rich listening experience that even the most casual listener can fully appreciate.

Lifelike planar magnetic sound technology

Audeze’s planar magnetic high end level headphone are known for their expansive frequency response and sound accuracy. Planar magnetic drivers use a thin diaphragm with a larger surface area to generate sound, unlike the dynamic drivers commonly used in most headphones. The circuit is etched along the entire surface area of an extra thin diaphragm, which is held between two large magnets. The LCD-2’s utilize a powerful magnetic field, resulting in minimal amounts of distortion even at a higher volume. When the circuit receives a signal, it corresponds wit the magnetic field, making the diaphragm move back and forth. The result is a lifelike, spacious sound of the highest quality and integrity bringing the listener closer to the music than ever before.

Premium craftsmanship and protection

The LCD-2’s are crafted in the USA with a fine attention to detail. The earcups are made from composite bamboo appointed with a soft genuine sheepskin leather. They feature a detachable cable with a standard 1/4” plug for connection to a home stereo. This cable securely connects to each earcup using a 4-pin mini XLR connector. Connect the LCD-2’s to a headphone amplifier to fully utilize their potential. To keep your investment safe, Audeze includes a durable travel case. This is not the flimsy, soft case that is included with many other headphones on the market. The LCD-2’s come with a hardshell, waterproof case with a soft interior and carry handle to keep them safe whether traveling or securely storing them at home.

Audeze LCD-2 with Phasor

Please consider getting these headphones if you like your coffee a little on the dark side. Honestly could not be happier with the ability to leave reality behind and soar with music.

Running simple tube amplification and quality D to A has lead to the gates of heaven. I don't miss my B&W 801s nearly as much as I used to. (your welcome Wayne:)

Weird low frequency stuff is reproduced, like when someone walks by and the air pressure changes and you feel it in your ears.... I get up and look around? Just the headphones casting their spell.

By now you guessed it, LOVE EM!!!!!

Audeze LCD-2 with phasor technology

A slightly dark cup of coffee. That's how I would describe these cans. I listen with a simple tube amp and a good D to A and so far.... TREMENDOUS

Getting lost in the music just happens.

I have gone back and listened to recordings I know very well and have been amazed at what I missed.

Easily 5 out of 5.

Audeze please take a bow!
