Planar Magnetic Drivers

Planar magnetic drivers combine characteristics of several driver types. They employ magnetic fields akin to dynamic and balanced armature drivers. However, planar magnetic drivers, like electrostatic drivers, use a flat, thin diaphragm in contrast to a coil. The planar drivers are known for their quick transient response.

Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.

Open-Back Design

Headphones with an open-back design, allow air to pass through the earcups. This means that Open-Backs do not block any noise from around you, as closed-backs do, and music being heard will also leak outside to people around you. So they can only be heard in a quiet environment.

However, Open-back headphones do sound more natural and open. Open-back headphones create a feeling of space, presenting audio as if you are sitting at a live concert. Audiophiles swear by open-back headphones, and they sound quite different to closed-backs.

These headphones are perfect for critical listening sessions, mixing and mastering music. They have an accurate soundstage presentation and precise imaging.

Bang On!
Not at all

This was my first open back headphone, as all of you guys know open back headphones are an acquired taste. You have to be completely involved in it to enjoy it , so not for everybody.
This guy needs a lot of power from amp, excellent Dac and source(Tidal/lossless).If you are lacking any of these then its not for you.
Now my experience :
Its very lightweight , i can listen for a very long time without any kind of discomfort, and no sweating due to it being open back.
Sound Quality : As good as it can be and it shines when using balanced input/cable(Unbalanced output has usually half or less power than balanced one in amps).
I also own some quality iems like ThieAudio, Campfire, Final . They all have their own sound signature and cons/pros. The biggest advantage of having a good quality open back headphone over iems is that it can drive any kind/genre of song masterfully and effortlessly.
Overall an excellent buy.

a Beast!

You know u've woken up a beast when u play Pink Floyd Sorrow, or Terminal Frost, OR Hammock's Tristia and Sinking Inside Yourself, OR Chemical Brothers, or Duran Duran through your Fiio M17 over the ear headphone mode!! CRISPY CLEAR!! THEN, suddenly the Beasty is on Steroids when you connect the AC Adapter to your M17 and you suddenly get a hidden option to power the Audeze LCD 3 directly from DC despite being connected to the Audio Player!! !! The LCD 5's are exactly that, and they do deliver exactly what an Audiophile needs... !!! I always prefer Function over Fashion. dont care about the looks or size, or weight, as long as they have a damn good audio quality to deliver. The sound is Flat without any equalizers, but thats an extra bonus for me as i also play electric guitars and do have to monitor the tones of the output headphones... and thats advantageous to me ALSO BECAUSE when i listen to the music and songs that i could potentially cover, i listen to the songs a hundred times... My point is, EACH AND EVERY Instruments used in a song are discernable on these ethereal LCD 5's.!! The 3 Years warranty gives you quite a confidence, and goes even further to show how confident Audeze is about their products.. That was a point that i had overlooked, but the HEADPHONEZONE guys asked me to consider Audeze for its 3 yrs warranty.. Many thanx to them!! To cut short, if u are an audiophile, or a musician, or have passion for playing music or creating music, and if u have the budget, then the LCD 5 wouldn't let you down in any way... but just might increase your heartbeats when u listen to some HQ or FLAC format of you favorite songs :-p ... Lastly, but all the more important, is that i hope you have some form of amplification device to take the full advantage of the LCD 5's. Cheers!! and GO FO IT!!

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!
