I am very disappointed with the headphone zone team for misguiding me into buying this very boring set of headphones. The sound may be detailed and accurate, but there is absolutely no energy in this headphones to bring any excitement to the listener. The sound stage is also poor. The build quality is not upto the mark, I can hear the plastic body creaking when I listen music at lower volumes. If you just want to enjoy music and have an immersive experience, this is not for you. I specifically told the headphone team that my purpose is not to analyse music but to enjoy it, still they ill advised me into buying these expensive headphone, which is a huge let down for me. If Mr Raghav is reading this, he must make sure that his team does not mislead their customers.
I was using Grado SR80i for the last six years and after seeing review of LCD-1 thought it would be an upgrade. But now, I still find Grado 80i to have more emotion. This has not worked for me.
The Audeze LCD-1 cans are absolutely stunning. The planar magnetic drivers used in these audiophile headphones, take a little time to warm up. Fresh out of the box, a planar magnetic driver sounds sharp and far too detailed, but of course they mature. Over the first maybe 16 hours of burn-in, the 90mm Audeze drivers warm up… and once they do… Oh…. My…. God….
The open-back LCD-1 headphones means there’s nothing really keeping the sound in. For you, that means they’re less fatiguing to wear, with the sound not feeling like it’s just blasting your ear-holes, and nor do you get the sound waves reverberating around the ear cups as they bound off a closed back. Use it for pretty much any application including Gaming without your ears feeling like they are going to melt in a few more minutes…..Sweat pouring from your Heated ears…..
They are genuinely affordable when you put them up against any other Planar headphones even from Audeze.
The build is so practical…Small and light…. Easily folded and snuggles into the case. Yes, LCD-1 comes with a beautiful case. It also comes with the Lovely dual ended 3.5 mm cable that pretty much doesn’t care which is L or R.
It is such a beautifully built planar that it is easily driven by even mobile devices. No need for amplification. Unbelievable……How did they do it?
The sound is something that is so bright but not harsh… Not too rumbling or creeping bass…No harsh Sibilances… No Overpowering mids….Everything is so right….. The sound stage is good but not too expansive… Just put it on….Thats all is required…. So simple…..
Just buy it…..
Thank you for sharing this elaborate review with us.
Thanks for headphonezone for delivering these once the lockdown was eased.
This is an exceptional planar headphone at this price point, build with metal looking plastic and one would have to get used to the longer 7 feet cable (can be swapped for a shorter flexible cable and add a splitter at the end) these headphone will automatically detect which side it has to pass the signal, good feature at this price point.
For the overall presentation, no matter the material you’re listening to nor the volume at which you’re listening, is composed, engaging and entirely believable. you will listen to music you’ve never heard before, the same music will sound different though you’ve it heard a thousand times before and there’s every chance you will find some nuance in there you’ve never really heard before.
The impedance says 16 ohms, to get the best of this head phone you got to use an amp, I use FIIO Q1, post connecting and moving gain to high the real music comes out, though it runs from mobile devies decently.
1) Sound leakage - expected from open-back headphone, but the earcups padding coud be been better
2) Creeking sound from the hinges creeks up while you turn your head, didn't expect from this headphone, I also use ATX M50X BT I use it a lot and abuse to the core but never got any creeking sound from the hinges and it furns complete both the sides.
3) Earcups heat up longer listing time, didn't find any replaceable earcups for these yet
We are incredibly grateful that you took the time out to leave us this note. We look forward to serving you again.
I love how this pair is easy to carry since I travel a lot, I wanted something just like this. They don't need fancy, bulky power supply to drive them because of the planar magnetic drivers. Thanks to Audeze and HPZ I can pursue my hobby along with my profession.
We are glad we could help you. Thank you so much for your review.
Let me begin with thanking HPZ for making these available in India. These are easily the best beacuse of their built. They are so light and portable. Love how their sound profile is so well-balanced and wide. However, because of the open back design there is a little sound leakage and no isolation obviously. Over all I'm quite satisfied with this purchase.
Thanks a ton for sharing your review with us.
Very light weight and compact. Great to use for long hours. Lovely Acoustics and Trebles and Crystal clear sound as well as good wide sound stage! Bass could have been a bit more tight and punchy. Overall, an excellent pair of open back headphones!
Trebles are incredibly smooth.
Heard new kind of bass..light yet fast and fantastic.
Instruments separation is better than meze 99 classics.
Do not know much about soundstage, hence can't comment.
Worth of it's elevated price.
So glad to know that you love them:) We look forward to serving you again. Happy listening!
I was looking for biger range of frecuency that this product don’t have but it is ok for listen music no for mix music in the studio
