AUDEZE - LCD-XC Closed Headphones

AUDEZE LCD-XC Headphones 


Audeze's popular closed back headphone is now available in carbon fiber cups. The sleek weaved pattern creates a new, modern aesthetic in the classic headphone that you know and love.


Sound Signature and Design
LCD-XC is the most neutral of all the LCD Collection, making it a popular choice among with audiophiles, recording engineers and musicians alike, for its clarity and fast, accurate dynamics. The XC is sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results. The closed-back design provides very good isolation and full and athoritative bottem end.


The LCD-XC transducer is specifically designed to work with a wide variety of driving sources. From portable players to studio use, the LCD-XC provides high volume without a headphone amplifier even though all LCD-series products benefit from a high-quality amp.


The LCD-XC earcups are made from polished anodized aluminum with sloped ear pads of either premium lambskin leather or a leather-free super-suede microfiber fabric. The earpads are designed with specially-crafted foam offering the proper firmness and acoustic balance.


Engineered and Handcrafted in the Audeze California factory
The LCD-XC headphone is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-built using the finest, most luxurious materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. The new LCD steel & leather suspension headband provides comfort for hours of listening pleasure. You can pair the LCD-XC with portable devices, but it sounds best driven by a quality amplifier.
