AUDEZE LCD-5 - THE NEW FLAGSHIP PLANAR MAGNETIC HEADPHONES
Audeze as a company has been revered and respected by the audiophile community and audio professionals for their high quality planar magnetic headphones. For the past decade, Audeze's LCD lineup of headphones has set the golden standard for planar magnetic headphones. The company's LCD series of headphones has pioneered and pushed the boundaries of what a planar magnetic headphone can achieve. Continuing the path of innovation, the all-new LCD-5 offers improved driver performance, ear pads and lightweight frame design (only 420 grams) to set a new standard for performance and comfort.
EXPERIENCE REAL ACCURACY, RESOLUTION AND SPEED WITH LCD-5
Audeze LCD-5 headphones have been technically upgraded in every aspect from the past generation of LCD headphones. The drivers for the LCD-5 headphones are engineered with award-winning Fluxor magnets and feature updated Fazor waveguides along with the new Patent-pending Parallel UniforceŠÜ¢ voice coils. These voice coils employ varying width parallel traces to keep the impedance low and provide increased voltage headroom by altering the current density within each trace. The uniform force created by this optimisation lowers distortion and provides better control of diaphragm movement, resulting in improved sonic resolution. With these upgrades, the LCD-5 sets a new standard for accuracy.
UPDATED ACOUSTIC CHAMBER DELIVERS A WIDE SOUNDSTAGE
Audeze has been renowned to introduce headphones that deliver extremely clean and wide soundstage. This is also a key feature in the new LCD-5 headphone. The team of acoustic engineers at Audeze have optimised every aspect of the LCD-5's acoustic chamber to achieve pinpoint imaging and a wide soundstage. The new sculpted ear pads and acoustically transparent mesh minimise reflections and resonance while the Parallel UniforceŠÜ¢ voice coil allows increased space between magnets for improved frequency response and a more open soundstage. LCD-5 also features newly designed low-profile Fazor waveguides to reduce diffractions and interactions with the ear.
THOUGHTFULLY DESIGNED TO OFFER A COMFORTABLE WEARING EXPERIENCE
The team of designers at Audeze have gone to all lengths to design the LCD-5. The team at Audeze have addressed the main request from LCD series headphone owners and have designed the LCD-5 to be lightweight and comfortable to wear for the longer listening sessions. Weighing in at only 420 grams, the LCD-5 offers hours of listening pleasure without any discomfort. Every part has been re-engineered, using high-quality materials such as magnesium, aluminium and acetate which offer lightweight and high rigidity. When you put on a pair of LCD-5s, your head and ears are cradled in materials of the finest quality. Supple premium leather and carbon fibre pull all the elements together into a package of the finest craftsmanship, which is hand-assembled in the company's California workshop.
BUNDLED WITH A HIGH PURITY CABLE AND FEATURES SCULPTED EARPADS
The Audeze LCD-5 headphones come bundled with a high purity connection cable. The LCD-5 connecting cable is specially tuned with directional OCC high-purity copper strands that provide low capacitance and low resistance path for the audio signal to travel from your amp to the drivers, maintaining unsurpassed clarity and precision. The new sculpted, internally sloped earpad architecture reduces unwanted resonances and interior reflections. The ergonomic design cradles your cranium and helps naturally place the headphone in the optimal listening position. The pads have less contact surface area than standard designs to reduce fatigue while providing a superior seal for all shapes and sizes.

Audeze's Journey of Achieving Audio Excellence
Audeze was founded by Sankar Thiagasamudram & Alexander Rosson in 2008. Enjoy the most engaging audio experience with Audeze's highly advanced transducer design. Audeze is known for making the world's best planar magnetic headphones. Audeze planar technology offers superior audio accuracy, clear soundstage with absolutely no distortion. These USA made headphones help you to experience music in its purest form. Audeze's planar driver consists of a diaphragm which is thinner than a human hair and it was developed by NASA’s space application projects. The journey of Audeze began with its LCD lineup which became highly popular for its exceptional performance. It was followed by some notable products like the Audeze Sine, Audeze iSine 10, even the pro gaming model Audeze Mobius. These products have helped Audeze to create a unique status in the audio market.
Precision Crafted for Perfection
Quality is the highest priority for all Audeze headphones. Each headphone is designed to achieve a high standard of quality using the most powerful magnetic field. This field consists of custom-cut, specially treated and cured magnets which are placed on both sides of the diaphragm. The Double Fluxor Array helps Audeze headphones to achieve the most powerful magnetic flux ever. This helps in the management of the diaphragm with the least amount of noise distortion. During the final assembly process, headphones are matched with wood rings and textured leather earpads. Each headphone goes through a 24-hour burn-in followed by a thorough testing process.
Experience the Most Realistic and Pure Sound
Audeze headphones employ high-end planar magnetic technology which allows the headphones to deliver more natural, detailed and high-grade audiophile sound. This life-like audio of Audeze headphones makes you experience your music as if you are listening to them in a live concert. Giving you a sound which is close to how artists intended their music to sound.
Partnership with BMW DesignWorks
Audeze has partnered with Designworks which is BMW's subsidiary group. They gave the industrial design to Audeze's EL-8 series, the SINE On-Ear headphone, and the Deckard DAC/AMP/PREAMP. The blend of this cutting-edge design and Audeze's advanced planar magnetic technology helps in the creation of high-quality headphones that have a worldwide appeal

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.
