Rightly named, there is very little that the LCD-4 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.
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.
Rather than using a standard headphone drivers that operate like miniature woofers or tweeters, the LCD-4s, like the LCD-3s and the LCD-2s, use a large, 6.17-square-inch thin-film planar magnetic driver to create unbelievable life-like sound. All thanks to the dedicated team who work on embedding only the best
The LCD-4 has an efficient push-pull magnetic structure that is specially designed and self-closing. This ensures an acoustically transparent music listening experience. Compared to the LCD-3s the LCD-4 has a double fluxor magnet. It is equipped with the most advanced of the technologies.

First of all i want to thank my girlfriend for gifting me these for my birthday and also a shout out to the headphonezone team for making this possible because i know they are hand made and takes a lot of time to get a hand on these trust me, she tried to get these from US, europe and singapore but surprisingly the headphone zone did it. 100/100 for effort.
I just got them today and its been 4 hours that i have been going straight at it with all my music collection. They are huge headphones but very comfortable fit and they look absolutely gorgeous.
Performance 100/100 . if u want me to put some technical details out here to tell you how big of a beast they are, that wont do justice. i can tell you poetically how beautifully they construct sound and environment but that wont paint the whole picture. so all i can say is go get them, listen to them and experience a journey you wont have words for, as simple as that.
These Cans are Best Suited for Imaging as they Don't have a very Wide Soundstage. No Other Set of Cans can Match these in Imaging. Absolutely Spot On Sound Signature for my Liking. These have Very Good Dynamic Range, Transparency, Produce Detailed Sound & has Extra Ordinary Build Quality.
On the Other Hand, They are Huge and Heavy. Treble is a Bit Recessed for Me. Needs Serious Driving Power to Be Used to the Fullest.
Bass- The Bass is the Strongest Suit of these Headphones. It is Warm, Rich, Well Extended and Deep. These Headphones have the Best Bass that I've Heard So Far.
Mids- The Mids are a Bit Recessed and Slightly Flawed in the Last Part of the Upper Mids. Sound Reproduction of Various Instruments is Lifelike and Very Detailed Overall.
Treble- It's the Only thing that isn't Well Controlled. It's Far Better than Previous LCD's. It's Pleasant, Smooth & a Little Too Recessed for Me.
Vocals- One Word. Mesmerizing! It's Like the Artist is Right in front of You Singing Live.
Build Quality- Every Bit Feels Luxurious. The Ebony Wood, The Carbon Fibre Headband, The Sheep Skin Leather Pads and Headband are all of the Highest Grade. It Even Comes in a Heavy Duty Pelican Case.
Conclusion- I Absolutely Love these Headphones. From my Perspective and at the Time of Writing this Review, These are the Best Set of Planar Magnetic Cans I have ever Owned or Heard. These are NOT CHEAP. But If you Afford it, These are the Best Planar Magnetic Cans You Could Ever Lay Your Hands On.
Headphones- Audeze LCD-4, HiFiMan HE1000 V2, Sennheiser HD 800S, Focal Utopia, Audeze EL-8C, HiFiMan Susvara and Sennheiser HD820 (Coming Soon).
