After the award-wining Mobius headphones geared towards gamers, Audeze launched the LCD-GX in mid-July to fill the void of audiophile-gamers. It was announced at the High End Munich 2019 show as part of the rave-reviewed LCD series line-up. These are the world’s first audiophile-gaming headphone.
Build with their patented FluxorTM magnets and ultra-thin UniforceTM diaphragms, the LCD Planar Magnetic drivers offer a better base and superior soundstage. These drivers are more than twice the size of the competition and are made from materials originally designed for space applications. It has an open-back design that is a rarity among gaming peripherals. The weight-reducing suspension headband paired with memory foam ear pads are for comfortable gaming marathons. There is a built-in directional, noise-attenuating boom microphone and a foam pop filter to improve voice clarity. Oh, and it also has a mute button for the mic for added privacy.
The Audeze LCD-GX is designed for serious gamers, as it is strictly analog – no digital processing. Just for the real purists. Although, it’s outstanding resolution makes it ideal not just for gaming but also for the time you’re away from keyboard. It can be used for monitoring, mixing and even audio editing.
Every LCD-GX comes with 2 inter-changeable cables – one with and another without the boom mic. The boom mic cable ends in a 3.5mm (1/8”) TRRS 4 conductor plug and has a flexible gooseneck arm for those extra angles. There is also a dual 1/8” splitter included along with a 1/4”(6.3mm) stereo plug adapter.
Each Audeze LCD-GX is handcrafted out of magnesium in their California factories. You can pre-order it for ₹69,990 here.
