Audeze LCD-2 Planar Magnetic Headphones


  • $ 79900
  • Save $ 196

The Audeze LCD-2 is a state-of-the-art planar magnetic headphone with every component engineered with one goal in mind: to recreate sound precisely as the artist intended. The LCD-2 uses our proprietary thin-film diaphragm housed between a push-pull magnetic structure producing incredibly accurate and detailed sound.

The ear cups of the LCD-2 are made from environmentally sustainable Bamboo Composite or Rosewood. The sloped ear pads are dual purpose and are designed for aesthetics and functionality.

The ear pads have been handcrafted to look great and offer the right amount of firmness for a comfortable fit that provides the proper amount of isolation and seal. Additionally, the sloped design provides a more stable fit while positioning the driver more directly towards your ear to ensure correct imaging and sound signature.

"In design, build, and performance, they're the epitome of high-end." - Forbes

"A game-changer. Redefines the state of the art." – Steve Guttenberg, CNET - The Audiophiliac

"This headphone somehow produces extraordinary clarity, openness, and articulation, but without exaggerated detail or annoyingly overdone treble ... The LCD-2's vivid presentation can only be matched by the very best, and vastly more expensive speaker systems." - Steve Guttenberg, CNET

"The LCD-2's are a champion of low-level detail ... The mono recordings have such an abundance of depth; they feel like stereo ... I will be using them as my main reference standard against which I'll judge all other headphones." - Jeff Dorgay, TONE Audio

"Spectacularly yummy ... The bass on these headphones is as good as it gets ... In a number of ways the LCD-2 was the best headphone I'd ever measured." - Tyll Hertsens,

"They present the music to you rather than shoving it at you, and their way of handling ambience creates a deeply immersive listening experience ... They also rendered much of the ambience that’s captured on the best recordings." - Andrea Sundaram,
