Audeze LCD-X Over Ear Open Back Headphone New 2021 Version Creator Package with Carry case
(as of Oct 19,2021 20:54:03 UTC – Details)
This is the latest advancement of our famous LCD-X (effective March 2021). Many say the LCD-X is the most neutral of the LCD Collection; they’re used by sound engineers and musicians to create the most accurate recordings. Just Google Manny Marroquin, Stuart Hawkes, Frank Filipetti, Ed Cherney, George Massenburg, Elliot Scheiner, or Brent Burge for a few examples of our Audeze users. They do a great job of translating your mix to the real world. The X and its brother, the closed-back XC, are sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and some of the better smartphones, but you’ll enjoy much better sound with an external amplifier. Its impedance is 20 ohms.
Audeze’s exclusive Planar Driver design has lower distortion
Diaphragms thinner than a human hair
We use space-age materials in an ultra thin diaphragm four times larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
Near zero distortion
Double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion.
Patented Fazor Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonances for a more accurate waveform.
The Audeze story
Audeze started in 2008 in a garage (of course!) when its founders came across a revolutionary flexible circuit material developed for NASA. Realizing this could be a great advance in planar magnetic technology, they first started to make pro audio PA speakers, but dropped this project and started making headphones!
Taking this first headphone to the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, it was a tremendous hit, and that success launched the company. Hanging on that garage wall was the 2001 Space Odyssey poster, and that inspired the company’s name. The founders wanted a name that had something to do with a “journey through audio,” so Odyssey would be perfect, and that’s how the name Audeze (pronounced “odyssey”) was born.
THE PROFESSIONAL: Many of the current hit recordings you’ve heard have been mixed on Audeze headphones – the headphone of choice for recording engineers, musicians and audiophiles alike. With an efficiency of 103dB/1Mw and an impedance of 20 ohms they are the perfect option for anyone seeking a reference quality headphone.
PLANAR MAGNETIC DRIVERS: Large ultra-thin 106 mm diaphragms with Audeze’s proprietary Fazor elements and double-sided magnetic arrays. Frequency response from 12Hz – 20kHz extended out to 50kHz.
EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE: Revised 2021 ear pad design with luxurious leather (also available leather-free) and ergonomic design all contribute to the comfort and sophistication of the LCD-X with the best possible audio.
HAND CRAFTED IN CALIFORNIA: This Audeze headphone is engineered and meticulously handcrafted then rigorously tested and calibrated before leaving our Southern California facility.
IMPORTANT: This is a new revision for 2021 and replaces previous model ASIN B0765KJ5CB
