Product Overview This bundle includes:
Audeze LCD-X Headphones
Audeze Carbon Fibre Suspension Headband

There is pretty much only one way you can improve on the excellent LCD-X...and that is to upgrade the headband with the carbon fibre one found on the flagship LCD-4's! Simply undo the screws on the top of the yoke rods and slide them out of the old headband. The suspension leather band spreads the load more evenly than the standard LCD headband, making it perfect for long sessions, while the top band is made from carbon fibre, which also reduces the overall weight of the headphones slightly.

* Note: The headband does not have the Audeze sticker on the sides, you only get those with the LCD-4's. They do not come with additional yoke rods.



The Studio Flagship - Ideal For Mixing and Mastering





Recommended By Scan Pro Audio
Imagine an unbelievably detailed pair of headphones that can get amazing results from your Laptop, Tablet or Phone without an additional headphone amp? Well, this is it! The low impedance makes these perfect for travelling producers and listeners alike, still with enough detail to attract top mastering engineers such as Erick Labson (Aerosmith, The Who, Souljah Boy) and Stuart Hawkes ("X" by Ed Sheeran's, Naughty Boy, Chase & Status, Example)

If you do have a dedicated DAC / Amp (such as the excellent Audeze Deckard or Chord Hugo or Mojo), then you can unlock another level of detail and precision.
The reference-level LCD-X is an exciting addition to the LCD planar magnetic headphone collection. The LCD-X features a newly-developed and processed transducer made of a thinner and lighter alternative material with new Fazor technology.

Exclusive LCD-X Planar Magnetic Technology





The Engineers Best Friend
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.

o Audeze Headphones utilise Planar Magnetic technology which overcome many of the limitations of cone-based drivers.
o 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.
o 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.
o Audeze made many changes to the basic planar magnetic design, with them being renowned for their extended low frequency response and exceptionally sharp transients.

Designed, Engineered and Handcrafted In Audeze's California Factory





Meticulously Built
The LCD-X 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.


Industrial Design By Audeze





Refined Aluminium Finish
You'll be proud of how the LCD-X looks and sounds; it's imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful anodized aluminium rings that are manufactured at Audeze's facility. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. The cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created a breathtakingly beautiful sounding headphone.

These include the new "Fazor" waveguides in each earphone assembly. The Fazor elements improve clarity, focus and the already spectacular holographic imaging. The two Fazor elements are placed just outside the two magnet structures that surround the diaphragm in each capsule. They guide and manage the flow of sound around the magnets.










"To call the LCD-X good would be an under-statement on a par with describing the Beatles as popular, because they're not good. They're amazing. It's also a revelation to hear bass that is this deep yet effortless and articulate. They present a very believable and involving stereo panorama. There's an effortlessness and power to the transient response that simply makes other headphones sound two-dimensional by comparison... drums have the sort of punch and depth that you usually get only from large speaker systems. You can absolutely crank the level on your headphone amp and, provided the amp itself is up to the mark, all you get is a deeper and more engaging listening experience. Nothing crunches, or honks, or sizzles; instead, the music is just delivered to your ears with more authority and power. In short, though, the Audeze LCD-Xs are the best headphones I have ever heard, and not by a small margin."
Sam Inglis - Sound On Sound Magazine - September 2015



"Beautifully-finished and equally beautiful-sounding, deliciously smooth, unambiguously stable and accurate imaging with a lack of coloration in the midrange and treble."
John Atkinson, Stereophile



"The subtle gradations of dynamics in piano recordings are a real thrill... you'll realize how most headphones gloss over that aspect of sound reproduction."
Steve Guttenberg, CNET



"The sound is wide and deep... it sounds bigger and better with superb separation. The mids offer simply fantastic detail and contouring that you just don't get in 99.5 per cent of headphones."
Andre Williams, Trusted Reviews



"The sense of space is enormous, sounding more like speakers in a room than drivers next to your ears."
Geoffrey Morrison, Forbes



"I can hear further into the recording as there's more air between the instruments. The recording had me so engrossed with the performance that it brought tears to my eyes."
Frank Iacone, Headphone Guru



"The smallest details, the shortest transients, were all a clear and well defined as I could imagine possible. There was not a hint of over-sibilance."
John E. Johnson, Secrets of Home Theater and HighFi
