  • Audeze LCD-XC

    The best of both worlds, Audeze have created the LCD-XC closed back headphones based on their acclaimed LCD-X open planar magnetic studio headphones. They share the same drivers that offer the same level of detail and transparency integral to any music creator’s toolkit.

    Audeze LCD-XC incorporates Fazor technology offering superior phase response, broad frequency extension, balanced frequency response and remarkable 3D holographic imaging. For the purest, most discerning audiophile listening sessions, open headphones remain the favoured choice, however, the Audeze LCD-XC is the unsurpassed champion of enclosed headphones available.

    Ensuring that the LCD-XC will be the crown jewel in any headphone lover’s collection, Audeze's stunning carbon ear cups are crafted to the highest standards. The enclosures are made from precision-crafted anodized aluminium with sloped earpads of premium leather-free material. To offer the right firmness and perfect acoustic balance, the earpads are crafted with special foam.

    Your private listening realm.


    All the Benefits Plus Privacy
    The closed-back LCD-XC offers all the benefits of the LCD Collection’s open designs and isolates the listener while reducing ambient noise. No sound escapes the earcups. Fast, dynamic and accurate sound using our proprietary technology that eliminates breakup modes found in other designs and improves focus and clarity.

    Pinpoint Imaging
    Audeze headphones are the preferred solution for audio professionals and can be found in some of the world's most prestigious production houses. The ultra-thin diaphragms and powerful neodymium magnets deliver some of the most accurate sound reproduction of any headphone in the world.

    Easy to Drive
    Like all Audeze headphones, the LCD-XC is equipped with Fazor technology and is sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and better smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results.

    Designed and Handcrafted in Southern California
    Each LCD-XC driver is precision-crafted by hand in Audeze's Southern California facility. Using Audeze's patented engineering techniques and state-of-the-art laser-etching technology, Audeze put great care into each step of the manufacturing process to ensure Audeze headphones meet the exacting audio and production quality standards.
