Audeze's flagship headphone, the LCD-3, has been called the best in the world. At the pinnacle of the LCD Collection, this headphone delivers the highest resolution music experience out of their entire range of headphones.

The Audeze LCD-3 has been specially designed to reproduce audio that is extremely detailed and allow you to experience audio like you would, at a the studio or concert hall.

The sound is best described as being "always musical, spacious, ultra-realistic, with powerful bass, a rich and engaging midrange, and a top end that pulls you into the music." You will need a powerful external headphone amplifier to get the best out of these headphones.

Made in USA, the LCD-3 is truly a premium headphone that has been crafted from Zebrano wood and super-soft leather earpads, letting you enjoy uninterrupted hours of comfortable music.

  • "The Best Headphones in the World"


    Rightly named, there is very little that the LCD-3 cannot do when it comes to sound performance. Having an open-back circumaural design, certainly these headphones weren't made for the outdoors as the leak sound enough to disturb the next person. That said, the pluses outrun the minuses and they possibly are the best headphones, yet.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Fazor Technology

    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. The LCD-3 has an efficient push-pull magnetic structure that is specially designed and self-closing. This ensures an acoustically transparent music listening experience.


     

     

    Unique Magnetic Structure

    The LCD-3 has an efficient push-pull magnetic structure that is specially designed and self-closing. This ensures an acoustically transparent music listening experience. Audeze’s hand-tooled manufacturing process combined with advanced materials and technology produces extremely accurate and incredible sounding headphones. The LCD Collection delivers the listener into a new world of music, full of rich detail, low end clarity and overall accuracy.

    Planar Magnetic Transducer

    Rather than use standard headphone drivers that operate like miniature woofers or tweeters, the LCD-3s, like the LCD-2s, use a large, 6.17-square-inch thin-film planar magnetic driver to make sound.

    Engineered to Sonic Perfection

    Implementing unique designs and patented technologies, Audeze is widely recognized 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.

    Diaphragms: Thinner than a Human hair

    Embedded with diaphragms thinner than a human hair, the Audeze uses space-age materials in an ultra-thin diaghpragm that is typically four times larger than usual headphones for fast response times. This also dramatically reduces distortion, gives a higher resolution and improves 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.

    LOTUS Diaphragm

    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-3 headphone is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-built using the finest, most luxurious materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. Audeze made sure that they closely match transducers and even the earpads by leather texture and colour. One can choose real lambskin leather or Microsuede earpads and headband. All earpads are filled with carefully chosen acoustical foam for best fit and sound. The LCD-3 will play on portable devices but sounds best driven by a quality amplifier like the Audeze Deckard for best results.

  • "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-3, 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 LCD3s 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-3, 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-3 to any of those."

    "The LCD-3s 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-3 are capable of, or the absolutely jaw-dropping level of detail with which they extract every nuance contained within music."

Lush listening

Hi everyone thanks headphone zone for delivering the product in time . Audeze lcd3 is a very good headphone in the price range it's bass and midrange are the strong points treble is rolled off a bit and soundstage is limited only to head and not expansile . Lcd3 is very heavy and needs good amplification to drive it to full potential. I have hifiman he1000 and focal utopia compared to them it's down in its overall presentation and clarity. Hifiman gives you a pleasureable listening into sound it's very good through out the spectrum just a tad lower in midrange but very negligible. Focal utopia is in next level beating both of them in clarity and speed for a dynamic driver they compete very well against planars.Recommend if you are new to headphone world if it suits your budget. If u can afford an hifiman he1000 then it's worth spending on hifiman because as it is superior to lcd3 in overall presentation and brings a smile on your face.

Audeze LCD3 Planar headphones

Received these from headphone zone some days back but for personal reasons could not open them.
Well i did so today with a some awe,let me list the equipment used.
Sony i7 laptop running Jriver Media Center 21
Connected to an IFI IDSD Micro Amp Cum Dac which was used as a preamplifier.
Which in turn was connected to my favourite amp the Violectric HPA V200
Interconnects were RCA to RCA Cable | Made from Mogami 2549 Neglex Cable & Neutrik Gold ProFi Connectors.
Down to the Music was using the unbalanced cable.
1)Album "Love Over Gold" Dire Straits.Track -Telegraph Road.
Format DSD 2.8 Mhz
Simply Superb the lows and highs and the seperation was great.Clarity was out of this world.Bass was awesome.
Then went on to The Wall "Live In Berlin"Roger Waters" in DSD 2.8 Mhz these phones take this album to another level.
If someone was to ask me if these were worth the Rs 135K would reply worth every penny.
Thanks to all you folks at Headphone zone for making this happen.
