Designed & Made
ENGINEERED TO PERFECTION
The LCD-XC (Music Creator's Special) is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-built using the finest, most luxurious materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology in California, U.S.A. It features the very same drivers as the LCD-X (Music Creator's Special), but in a closed-back design. This allows for better noise isolation and minimal sound leakage.
MADE FOR AUDIO PROFESSIONALS
Audeze headphones are trusted by professional engineers and music producers as their new reference. The LCD-XC (Music Creator's Special's) best-in-class accuracy & microscopic clarity makes them an irreplaceable tool for those requiring the most transparent audio reproduction available. The wide frequency range from 10Hz to 50kHz allows experts to easily pinpoint each element in a track, making mixing more accurate.
EXTENDED FREQUENCIES & LOWER DISTORTION WITH FAZORS
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.
AUDEZE'S INNOVATIVE PLANAR MAGNETS
Acoustically engineered for accuracy Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers a clear and accurate sound that reveals everything on the recording. The LCD-XC (Music Creator's Special) has an efficient push-pull magnetic structure that is specially designed and self-closing. This ensures an acoustically transparent music listening experience. The double-sided Neodymium magnet arrays deliver a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for a near-zero distortion.
PROPRIETARY LOTUS DIAPHRAGM FOR A SMOOTH SOUND
Audeze's proprietary Lotus diaphragm has a printed circuit across most of its surface and 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 an extremely fast transient response.
MIX & MASTER ANYWHERE & EVERYWHERE
Not everyone can listen to their headphones in an acoustically treated room. With the Audeze Reveal plugin, you can add custom filter presets to all Audeze flagships. Now, mix and master in virtually any location, be it the studio, your home or even on top of an active volcano.

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

"Ridiculous price aside, the XC houses a tone that I absolutely adore and want to see more of in the future. I enjoy the musical experience, but I do have some gripes."Read More
"It’s a headphone that sounds great with anything, even though it’s dynamic sound signature might be especially suited to rock and roll, hip-hop, and other similar genres."Read More
"The XC offers a transparent view through the window of recorded events that I could definitely see both mastering engineers and headphone cognoscenti appreciating."Read More
"While it's not nearly as wide as the LCD XC it proves it self deeper and often more precise and at no time did any particular frequency range stand out at me."Read More
“Dynamic impact is astonishing, and you never get the feeling you’re approaching the limits of what the LCD-XC can do.”Read More
"For roughly two grand, you would expect these to be bulletproof and built like a Ferrari, which I can confidently say they are. These are tanks, built to last."Read More
I own the Audeze LCD GX and Mobius and am quite happy with them. So naturally i wanted to try another Audeze, this time one with closed back design.
I came across LCD XC. Researched it and prioritized this over Focal Radiance. I am partial to Planar magnetic tech.
Build quality is really good. These ear cups are big and slightly heavy. Not meant to be worn for hours on end. However, they have really good passive noise cancelling. The sound is more treble oriented and the bass is a bit muted.
This high frequency treble can hurt some ears. But a quick EQ solves all this, bringing life to these. Get a good DAC and AMP (check Schiit Magni and Modi) and these ear cups will glow. The packaging is solid, so was Headphone zone's delivery.
Buy these if you want to hear everything in whatever you are playing. Gaming, movies or just general music, everything sounds the way it was recorded. This might not appeal to some but for the purists, this is it.
