    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.

  • "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 LCD Xs 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-X, 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-X to any of those."

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

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.
