Introducing LCD-X, by Audeze. The first headphone designed specifically with the needs of music creators in mind.

Boasting Audeze's 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. This Creator Edition includes Audeze's new economy travel case and standard single-ended cable making these an affordable option for budget-conscious users.

Specifically designed, low impedance transducers of the LCD-X will work with a wide variety of driving sources. From portable players to studio use, the LCD-X provides high volume without a headphone amplifier even though all LCD-series products benefit from a high-quality amp. Proprietary Fazor elements in the Audeze LCD-X help guide and manage the flow of sound in the headphone.

Audeze's LCD-X earcups are made from polished black anodized aluminium with sloped earpads of either premium lambskin leather or leather-free alternatives. The earpads are designed with specially-crafted foam offering perfect firmness and absolute acoustic balance.

Favoured by recording engineers and musicians alike for its fast, dynamic and accurate sound. Audeze proprietary technology eliminates the breakup modes found in other designs and improves focus and clarity.

Patent-pending Fazor elements guide and manage the flow of sound for improved frequency extension and balanced soundstage. LCD-X is sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and better smartphones. An external amplifier produces improved results with heightened sonic delivery.

Each LCD-X 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 all headphones meet the exacting audio and production quality standards.

The included Audeze warranty covers 3 years for the drivers and 1 year for all other parts. This warranty covers factory defects only, not wear and tear or cosmetic damage from use.
