Flat Sound Signature

A Flat sound signature offers an accurate presentation of sounds without adding colour to your music. Simply put, this sound signature presents audio without boosting any frequencies. As a result, it’s the most natural-sounding signature and provides the closest reproduction of how a track was recorded and produced. Due to their accurate sound reproduction, flat sound signature headphones are preferred by Music professionals, Sound Engineers and used in professional studios for mixing and mastering music tracks and are also loved by audiophiles for immersive listening sessions. You can listen to Classical, Rock, Jazz, Blues, Folk & possibly every genre in music.

Ideal for Audiophiles

These Wired Headphones are designed for discerning music lovers. If you are someone who cares about audio quality deeply, you'll want a pair of Wired Headphones like these. You can expect these Wired Headphones to present you with a refined listening experience. The audio quality exhibited by these Wired Headphones is a beautiful mix of musicality, technical brilliance and high precision. These Wired Headphones deliver a spacious and open soundstage that compares listening to music on actual speakers.

For Studio & Professionals

As the name implies, anything branded a studio headphone will have been designed especially for use in a studio setting, with a particular focus on accuracy and transparency for monitoring and mixing. These headphones present an accurate image of your music than ordinary headphones, allowing you to hear every nuance and aspect of your music. Therefore, having a good set of studio headphones is just as important as any other piece of gear in your studio. These headphones provide a fresh perspective to that mix you’ve spent hours working. Essentially, giving you another set of ears.

Closed-Back Design

Closed-Back design headphones are completely sealed around the ear cup, which allows the sound to travel directly into your ears. This means that closed-back headphones will block out a lot more outside noise, yielding much better isolation. Due to this design alone, most closed-back headphones can help reduce about 10 dB of noise. This is the main benefit of closed-back headphones, removing you from the outside environment so that you can focus entirely on the music you are playing. Closed-back headphones usually provide a better “bass” experience, as open backs traditionally struggle in the lows. All in all, these are excellent options for music listening and even studio applications.

Planar Magnetic Drivers

Planar Magnetic technology has been around for decades and headphones with Planar Magnetic drivers present a more detailed, more coherent representation of the music. Planar Magnetic driver features a series of magnets on both sides of a very large, flexible diaphragm containing tiny, electrically charged wires. When an audio signal is passed through it an electrical conductor moves between fixed magnets, reproducing sound waves. Headphones with a Planar Magnetic driver deliver an accurate and distortion-free audio signal.

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.

A few of the benefits include extended frequency response, improved high-frequency extension and lowered distortion, with better imaging.

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.
