Audeze LCD-2 Classic - Back to the Future!

Audeze

Recommended By Scan Pro AudioWe’ve taken our current generation LCD-2 drivers and removed the Fazor elements, aligning the sound of the LCD-2 Classic with that of the original LCD-2 launched in 2008. The result is a warm and energetic musical experience that heralds back to the early days of Audeze without sacrificing the sound or performance improvements we’ve made over the past decade. Whether you’re an old fan of the original LCD-2 or a brand new Audeze customer looking for an affordable introduction to our LCD line, the LCD-2 Classic is a great option for you!

These headphones benefit greatly from a dedicated headphone amp, we recommend the Audeze Deckard, Chord Hugo or Mojo combined DAC & Amps, or the Nuforce HA200 & SPL Phonitor Mini Analogue amplifiers for the LCD-2's

Exclusive LCD-2C Planar Magnetic Technology

Planar

Deep Bass. Liquid Midrange. Sweet Treble Audeze had one goal in mind when designing the LCD range of headphones "To recreate sound precisely as the artist intended". The LCD range produce incredibly accurate and detailed sound, which has won Audeze many awards in the Hi-Fi world and gained many professional studio users including Ken Andrews (Paramore, Nine Inch Nails), Rob Swire (Pendulum / Knife Party), Richie Hawtin, Andy C & Noisia, as well as many of the world's leading mastering engineers.

• Audeze Headphones utilise Planar Magnetic technology which overcome many of the limitations of cone-based drivers.
• Unlike conventional cones which are attached to a voice coil with a single magnet, Planar Magnetic drivers have two sets of magnets, with the diaphragm etched onto a wafer-thin film in between them with one set of magnets pushing as one set pulls. As the magnetic field is distributed across the entire diaphragm, it can move faster, reproducing the waves much more accurately and also reduces distortion. Other headphones and speakers often have square waves that look more like sawtooths, due to the cone not being able to move as fast as required.
• Planar magnetic drivers are also a lot more durable than dynamic drivers as only the diaphragm actually moves in the headphones, so the drivers wont degrade as they get older.
• Audeze made many changes to the basic planar magnetic design, with them being renowned for their extended low frequency response and exceptionally sharp transients.

Audeze REVEAL Plugin

Laptop

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!.

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.

(Open Box) Audeze LCD-2 Classic - Open-Back, Over-Ear Planar Magnetic Headphones, Leather-Free Earpads is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space to breath I am no audiophile so this review is based on purely personal experience. I bought these as new, open box, returned item at a good price. Out of the box they seemed a little harsh compared to the Sennheiser HD650's I have used for about 5 yrs, vocally they were a real struggle and almost unpleasant although with instrumental pieces across a wide range of genres, they were superb. I am dubious about terms like 'burning in' but they had such good reviews that I did allow them about 12hrs of use while I got on with my life before coming back to them. To my great surprise and joy this seemed to help hugely and the vocals from Buble to Fish to Lemmy had become - at least to these ears - more blended and harmonious. I don't know how to describe soundstage and sonics but I can say that they are now performing brilliantly with nuance and power and space to breathe. I have tried them with a Rega Ear Mk2, a Myriad Z40 and Lehmann Audio Drachenfels headphone amps. Sadly I have to report that although the Rega is significantly more powerful it doesn't touch the Myriad for uncovering the soul of what's being played and the Myriad in turn cannot match the astonishing revelation of the Lehmann amp. I didn't want it to be true but in this case money definitely buys you greater quality and immersion. Would I buy the Audeze and full price? Only if I was prepared and wanted to upgrade my amp as well...which I was, so I guess the answer is 'Yes.' Cons: These headphones are VERY big but comfortable. The cord is a strange affair begging to be tangled. They leak a lot of sound so late night listening at good volumes requires you to be in a another wing if you your partner is trying to sleep. Pros: Sound - once 'run in'. Price - nothing under £1000 can be better than these - but the DENON 7200 is as good with less space but more punch and just as much detail.

Are these ex demo

Hi it states that these are refurbished if they were demonstrated only once why do they need to be refurbed which makes me think that they may be used a bit more which is ok as would like to know as may have more run in time on them Thanks Brad.
Asked by: Audiohead
Good Afternoon, Yes, these are refurbished. Refurbished items can vary, you may receive a pair that is pretty much new, you may also receive a pair with some small cosmetic damage. The item itself should work as new, the only defect will be cosmetic. Kind Regards,
