Confused? Don't be, when there's a Guru to guide the way.

Since its release in 2009, the original LCD-2 headphone has been an industry favorite amongst passionate listeners everywhere.

Audeze proudly presents a new take on the original LCD2 design, the LCD2 Classic. The LCD2 Classic pays homage to the early iterations of the LCD-2. It brings back the warmer sound signature that Audeze were originally known for, before they introduced the Fazor Elements. The sound can be best described as being "always musical, spacious, ultra-realistic, with powerful bass, a rich and engaging midrange, and a top end that pulls you into the music." It’s not all a return to the old though, the external design is a almost entirely new. They get rid of the wooden rings and leather padding in favour of all new lightweight materials and a new suspension strap design for added comfort.

Made in the USA, the LCD2 Classic is an amalgamation of the roots of Audeze with where they are now. Enjoy hours in the arms of soft and sweet music, comfortably, with the LCD2 Classic!

    The LCD2C pays homage to the original iteration of the LCD-2 by bringing back the warmer sound signature that everyone originally remembers Audeze for. But, it’s not just the reintroduction of an old headphone, it has an all new design, reducing the weight and adding a suspension strap that makes it a lot more comfortable.

    Planar Magnetic Transducer

    Rather than using the standard headphone drivers that operate like miniature woofers or tweeters, the LCD2 Classic's use a large, 6.17-square-inch thin-film planar magnetic driver to create perfect sound.

    Engineered to Sonic Perfection

    Implementing unique designs and patented technologies, Audeze is widely recognised as the industry leader, offering planar magnetic headphones with unparalleled performance, visual appearance, and comfort in all price categories. They accomplish this by pushing the limits of technology, materials science and engineering, always striving for sonic perfection. The LCD2 Classics feature the double-sided magnet arrays which deliver music with near zero distortion with a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm.

    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.

    All new design

    Even though the sound signature is something lot of early Audeze adopters may have been familiar with, the design is almost entirely new. Instead of making the housings out of wood, they now use a new special composite material. The original strap has been replaced with a spring steel suspension strap, which is a lot more comfortable, and the new pads are Leather-Free, all of which combines to help make the headphones a lot lighter and a lot more comfortable to wear.

  • Audeze REVEALS Incredible New Plug-in

    Reveal is a revolutionary plugin developed by Audeze which applies carefully designed filter presets specific to our headphone models. This provides the listener with an experience similar to what you would hear from high quality studio reference monitors in an acoustically treated room (but without the pesky room reflections and reverb*). The presets are not meant to fix any issues, but rather to enhance the listener’s experience. We expect some users will prefer our headphones without any DSP presets, while others will prefer the “room sound” calibration provided by these Reveal plugin presets. The choice is yours!

    For professional applications, Reveal can allow mixing and/or mastering in virtually any location while ensuring your work will translate well to most any system. For pleasure listening, Reveal gives another “flavor” to be chosen by the listener and adds value to your Audeze headphones.

    The Reveal plugin is available at no cost for macOS (10.10 and above) and Windows (7 and above) and is compatible with most Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) or playback software that supports AU, VST or AAX plugins. Compatible DAWs include ProTools, Logic, Ableton Live, Digital Performer, REAPER and others. Compatible audio playback software includes JRiver, Audirvana Plus, Pure Music, VOX, Foobar2000 and others. The filters used by the Reveal plugin were designed for all commonly used sample-rates (44.1 kHz - 768 kHz), so no resampling happens no matter what sample-rate you use.

    Thanks in part to its highly intuitive user interface, Reveal is extremely easy to use. Simply download and install the plugin package here, load it into your DAW or music player software, select the model of Audeze headphone you’re using from the dropdown menu on the left, then make any adjustments to the Mix and Gain knobs to suit your taste and material.

    * Reveal Plugin does not apply any spatialization, reflections or crossfeed. It is designed to to be transparent and as unobtrusive as possible.

    How to Configure the Plugin for DAW Applications

    To install Reveal, download the Reveal Plugin zip file. Once the download is complete, double click on the downloaded file to unzip and run the installer. The installer should prompt you to select which components you want to install, and the directory in which you would like to install them. Be sure you install the versions you need for your system and put them in the location recommended by the provider of your preferred software (usually the system plugins folder).

    Most DAW applications work in similar ways, but there are some differences in the way plugins are integrated. We suggest you contact the maker of your particular DAW if you have any questions, but here’s an example of how to load Reveal into Logic on a Mac:

     

    Setting up Reveal on Logic

    In your project, open the mixer by pressing X on your keyboard and locate the Audio FX section of your Stereo Out track:

     

     

    Select an empty plugin slot, then locate the Reveal plugin under Audio Units>Audeze>Reveal>Stereo in the dropdown menu:

     

     

    Once the plugin has been activated, the Graphic User Interface (GUI) should automatically open, allowing you to select the appropriate preset for your Audeze headphone. The GUI also features Mix and Gain knobs which allow you to adjust the intensity and volume of the effect:

     

     

    How to Configure the Plugin for Audio players

    Most music player applications will work in a similar fashion, but they all have their own way of integrating plugins into their interface. We suggest you contact the maker of your particular player with any questions you might have, but here’s an example of how to load Reveal into JRiver Media Center on a Mac:

     

    Setting up Reveal on JRiver Media Player

    Open the Tools menu then select the DSP Studio button

     

     

    In DSP Studio dialog, select 'Manage Plug-ins'. Then click 'Add JRiver, VST, or Winamp Plug-in'
    Navigate to the folder where the Reveal plugin is located and select Reveal.vst. Click Open to proceed

     

     

    Once back on the main JRiver home screen, click Tools to open DSP Studio again. Select the Reveal checkbox to activate the Plugin

    "This isn’t a reboot. It’s a revolution. In our opinion, this is one of the best pairs of headphones available on the market today, and although we might catch quite a bit of flack for this, it’s one of the best models that AUDEZE have ever made."

    "If you're interested in a snappy, present response however, the dynamics of the LCD2C is likely to win you over. Audeze has done a very tidy job of bringing their high-end sound down to more affordable prices."

    "The user-replaceable braided cables seem sturdy, and securely lock onto the LCD2C's ear cups. The LCD2C packs a bigger wallop, it really kicks, and the bass, OMG -- the bass is miles ahead of the HD700s!. It has a larger sense of scale than most competing headphones; the LCD2Cs sound rich, warm and hugely satisfying."

Most musical headphones

LCD2C build is very premium and though a touch heavy feels comfortable due to headband design, balance and plush pads.
Sound is the most musical and fun I ve heard in any headphone. Warm, rich and thick tonality engulfs you. Bass is deep and extended, mids are lush and focused, treble is smooth. I get the feeling I m among the performers listening to these headphones; soundstage is 3D but not very wide. Imaging and separation are top notch. The drivers are lightning quick; bass noted & drum hits are resolved and clear no matter how fast. An audeze is a must have in any audiophile arsenal; LCD2C is a solid choice.

The Worthy Sennheiser HD650 Upgrade

I am a guitarist past my 40s. HD650 has been my primary headphones for a very long time, though I also have Hifiman HE400 and Grado SR80e. Btw, SR80e is a fantastic HP for low volume listening. I also have ELAC reference speakers which I use for mixing and mastering. So the time came to upgrade the 650s. So, took a chance and bought the LCD2C from the good folks at HPZ. People say there is no reason to upgrade HD650 and it is an end game headphone. There is some truth in it, HD650 fed by a decent amp is certainly an end game experience. But if you doubt whether it is really an end game headphone, buy these LCD2Cs and be rest assured that you have a real end game headphone. LCD2C is the worthy upgrade to HD650 across all frequencies and all genres. Comfort wise may not be, because LCD2C is heavier. But fit, clamping, earpads, headband etc. are very very good on LCD2C. I don't find any weight issues even after continuous listening for 2 to 3 hours. Use the Audeze Reveal plugin, and you will get nothing short of audio bliss. Thank you Headphone Zone for the LCD2C!

Reference Grade

The Audeze LCD2 Classic sounds like a calibrated home theatre with true subwoofer-like bass. I use these with the Audeze Reveal plugin and loudness correction in Equalizer APO. The Reveal plugin changes the response of the headphones to reference, while the loudness correction mains reference bass levels at lower volume.

Audeze LCD 2 Classic

I am not sure what I was expecting when I got this pair. It looked exactly similar to the LCD X and some other LCDs. Build quality, is perhaps the best ever, excepting the really high cost headphones. The sound quality i good at all three levels with a slightly deeper bass, and a good soundstage. The trouble with me is that with these audiophile headphones I am constantly searching for sound evaluation and totally ignoring the music. Attach these to a DAC/AMP there is some difference but not a huge deal on a Mac Laptop. Mac as we know has some very high grade sound cards so a DAC / AMP need to be really extreme to noticeably change the music quality when placed between a Mac and a very good pair of headphones.

So it everything is so good and every spec upto expectation, why am I not whooping with joy and remaining somewhat unenthusiastic? Well, when one has a large collection of good cans and DACs/APMs, and one appreciates and recognises the aspects of sound tech (not a hyper expert but an advanced purveyor) one realises that there are differences between each pair of headphones, but not so much as to change enjoyment of good music of any genre. The Audeze LCD 2 Classic falls right there.

It's awesome to look at (and enormous too); it has a great build quality that is distinctly Audeze; it has a good base, a great mids, and discernibly distinguished highs and the three zones merge imperceptibly and seamlessly; a very open soundstage and a rare clarity. What it does not have is the WOW! factor. It is one more set of headphones in the 40000 to 55000 range. If you have one there is no need to buy this one (Unless what you have is Beyerdynamic, in which case this is a must buy). On the other hand if you are moving into this range stop looking elsewhere. Buy these. Compared with sub-35000 headphones, this has a great Wow! factor. It is necessary to have an external DAC (but not a hugely expensive one) to pull music out of smartphones or PCs with average sound ...
