The ultimate in audiophile headphones

This front-runner in headphones has been acclaimed as the best in the world.

According to many, headphones may not get any better than this. The Audeze LCD-3’s are widely agreed, by many members of the audiophile community, to be the best headphones available on the market. This superior listening experience is exactly what Audeze had in mind when they engineered these amazing planar magnetic headphones. Their warm, stereo spacious sounds lets the listener experience the music in an entirely new way. Audeze’s perfectionist efforts to improve their products, have resulted in an enhanced driver system, delivering the music with both intricate delicacy and powerful impact. The dynamics of the LCD-3’s are lifelike and intense, with a sound quality that will immerse the listener into a whole new world. Pair them with an external headphone amp to fully utilize their potential.

Planar magnetic technology

Audeze has become a world leader in engineering and development of planar magnetic technology in headphones. Their drivers are famous for their superior frequency response and accuracy. Planar magnetic drivers utilize an ultra thin diaphragm with a loud surface area to produce sound. Their circuit is etched along the entire surface of the diaphragm which is held between two large magnets. The LCD-3’s use a powerful magnetic field resulting in the absolute minimal distortion even at higher volumes. As the surface receives the audio signal, it corresponds with the magnetic field resulting in the diaphragm moving back and forth. This process gives them their amazing, lifelike sound setting them apart from all others.

Exceptional craftsmanship

The finely crafted LCD-3 headphones are designed and manufactured in the USA. The earcups are made from fine zebrano African wood, for a a rich, natural tone. The headband and earcups are elegantly appointed with soft padding and genuine sheepskin leather. To protect your investment, Audeze include a durable travel case. This is not the kind of flimsy, soft carry case that is included with other headphones. It is a hardshell, waterproof case with a soft interior and carry handle. The LCD-3’s come with two high quality headphone audio cables. One contains a balanced XLR connection to use with high-quality headphones amplifiers. This ensures a balanced audio signal with minimal interference and an optimal sound. The second cable includes a 1/4” plug for use with a home stereo. Both cables have a 4-pin mini XLR connector for each earcup to provide integrity and security in the connection.
