    Music Creator Special

    The recording industry has been revolutionized because of Audeze. Many of the today’s biggest hits were mixed, mastered and tested with Audeze’s earphones. For the limited period of time, Audeze is offering music creators and enthusiasts the opportunity to experience award-winning sound of the LCD-X. This Creator Package gives you all the sound of LCD-X but does not include the travel case.

    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.


     

     

    Unique Magnetic Structure

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

    Diaphragms: Thinner than the 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.

     

    "Engineered and handcrafted in our California factory"


    The LCD-X 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-X will play on portable devices but sounds best driven by a quality amplifier like the Audeze Deckard for best results.

Music producers/Mix engineers dream

Simply the best piece of gear I have bought in the last 3 years. Really reveals all the flaws in your productions! Dealing with SO much detail can move your mixing focus from macro to micro, but once you spend time with these headphones and pair it with something like Reference 4 from Sonarworks - your mixes will translate like never before! Essentially a near perfect mix room in your backpack!

Hi-fi realism

If you happen to be on this page reading reviews then i imagine you are either just curious or like i was two weeks ago wondering how much better could these be over my AKG K712 pro and if it's worth the price. I ended up buying these after reading good reviews online (check out Arnie Nudell's review on Absolute Sound). I didn't want a headphone with a bright sound or treble peaks such as the Sennheiser hd800. I had my eyes on the Focal Clear but it isn't available yet in India.

Headphones $300-400 is the sweet spot where will get you can get really good sounding cans like akg k712, hd 600/650, oppo pm3. LCD X is a hi end headphones meant for audiophiles who listen to their music with attention and are willing to pay a price for improved sound. These are better then my k712 in every way: the bass is something else, there's more detail, clarity and realism in the sound of instruments and vocals. But the difference is more like 10% (no where near the 350% increase in price). Although these are easy to drive you will still need a good DAC/AMP for them to sound good, something like Modi/Magni would be a good starting point. Personally i have a Fiio X7 mark2 with the high power AM5 amp module set to high gain and this combination seems to work well. Sound-wise I must point out that these have a distinct back of the hall sound that took me a while to get used to. And while the dynamics are good and the sound excellent, they are fairly neutral and don't particularly sound... err... exciting. BTW, these headphones are _heavy_, but i find them comfortable for long listening sessions (i have fairly strong neck muscles from motorcycle sport-riding). The cable gets crinkled and tangled fairly easily. These are an end game headphone for me and overall i am happy with the purchase!

Value for money is not something you seek in this price range. But then I guess, you just seek ju...

To start with, the cans are huge and comfortably clasped my ears without causing any discomfort for the half an hour listening I subjected them to. A look at the cans and you know where they belong to...a sound studio!

The company has surely made them for indoor use and this is reiterated by the sheer quality of cables, jacks and oh boy, the size of each. The jacks are especially made of metal and give a heavy feel to the headphone, something you wouldn't want to lug around. In my opinion, they are meant to showcase that they are for professional use and nothing less. The cans are planar which means they move the air around your ears and are open back. A person sitting beside you will definitely enjoy the passive music experience, though they are experiencing only some 100 notches down perhaps.

The quality of segment they belong to is an uncharted territory to most of us Indians due to lack of availability of high end audio recording, use of pirated music encoded in MP3s, etc. These headphones are meant to be used with avant grade lossless music and gear and they do their job brilliantly. I would describe my bass experience as a woofer placed near my ear that was displacing real air to produce lowest of base the moment I bumped it up on the E17K. Needless to say, versatility is a virtue you would expect by default from a professional grade headphone and they deliver. For the mids and highs, they reproduced music well from the limited listening experience I had with them.
