"The Best Headphones in the World"
Audeze has come to be known as a highly trusted brand when it comes to audiophile, high-quality grade sound. They bring to us award-winning audio products that have been engineered with the latest innovations in science and technology. The LCD-2 is the legendary headphone that has made Audeze an industry leader. Known for their tight, extended bass response, smooth, inviting midrange, and warm high frequencies, the LCD-2 headphones offer a listening experience that makes believers out of even casual music listeners. Delivering audiophile quality and low-distortion sound the LCD-2 articulates the power and nuance of your favourite music. For the best performance, the LCD-2 requires an external headphone amplifier.
Fazors are special acoustical elements positioned on either side of the magnetic structure. They enhance transparency by affecting the sound waves generated by large planar diaphragms. A few of the benefits include extended frequency response, improved high-frequency extension, and lowered distortion, with better imaging.
Unique Magnetic Structure
The LCD-2 has an efficient push-pull magnetic structure that is specially designed and self-closing. This ensures an acoustically transparent music listening experience.
Planar Magnetic Transducer
Rather than using the standard headphone drivers that operate like miniature woofers or tweeters, the LCD-2's use a large, 6.17-square-inch thin-film planar magnetic driver to create perfect sound.
Engineered to Sonic Perfection
Implementing unique designs and patented technologies, Audeze is widely recognised as the industry leader, offering planar magnetic headphones with unparalleled performance, visual appearance, and comfort in all price categories. They accomplish this by pushing the limits of technology, materials science and engineering, always striving for sonic perfection.
Ultra Thin Diaphragms
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.
"Best in Class Audio Accuracy "
Audeze headphones’ best-in-class accuracy makes them an irreplaceable tool for those requiring the most transparent audio reproduction available. Besides being first discovered by audiophiles, now professional engineers and music producers are using these headphones as their new reference.
Large Ultra-Thin Film Diaphragms
Unlike a dynamic driver with a cone or dome attached to a round voice coil, Audeze's flat, thin-film diaphragm has a printed circuit across most of its surface. When the circuit is energized with an audio signal it interacts with magnets that move the diaphragm back and forth, creating a larger than life sound. Further, the Double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for a near zero distortion.
Most Planar Magnetic speakers use Mylar (PET) diaphragm with aluminum traces. Audeze transducers use new materials that offer substantial improvements for both diaphragm and traces. Audeze's proprietary Lotus diaphragm is capable of handling maximum continuous operating temperatures of over 400° F. This gives the drivers a smooth, resonance-free frequency response, excellent internal damping, edge damping, very low distortion and extremely fast transient response.
"Designed, engineered and handcrafted in the USA"
The LCD-2 is thoroughly engineered for long-term comfort and beautiful sound. Audeze closely matches their planar transducers and match their beautiful factory-made wood rings by grain and colour. They also use Shedua wood from tropical west Africa for further unique look. They further match the earpads by leather texture and color. You can choose between lambskin leather or Microsuede headbands and earcups that are filled with foam carefully selected for best sound and contribute to the level of comfort during long listening sessions.

"The Audeze circular flat diaphragm is sandwiched between rows of neodymium bar magnets. When audio signals pass through the diaphragm it moves in and out to produce sound, its large size and superlow mass the planar magnetic drivers."
"There's no getting around it -- there's one big downside to the LCD-2, and it's that the headphones are going to cost you, and cost you big. But it's a fantastic sounding piece of equipment; has beautiful fit and finish, is surprisingly comfortable given it's size."
"When the LCD2s first arrived, I plugged them in to make sure they survived the shipping. I ended up lying down right there on the floor and listening to music for over an hour. I can’t remember the last audio product that elicited that kind of reaction."
"I think the LCD-2, as a whole, is the best headphone I have heard. I have never owned any electrostats, but I have had several pairs for review, and have heard quite a few others, and I prefer the meatier sound of the LCD-2 to any of those."
"The LCD-2s use an open-backed design. This means they leak sound into the room. A lot. So they’re not really ideal when you’re sitting in the same room as someone else, unless you don’t mind annoying them."
"Words fail to describe the level of accuracy the LCD-2 are capable of, or the absolutely jaw-dropping level of detail with which they extract every nuance contained within music."
