Closed-Back Planar Magnetic Headphones
Audeze - 'LCD-XC' Carbon Cup


Closed Back. Exceptionally Spacious."Due to public demand, Audeze have introduced a leather free version of the Creator Pack models. These look almost identical to the leather alternatives, using the same pads and headband as the LCD-2 Classic and make no difference to the sound"

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.

The LCD-XC is Audeze's first foray into closed-back design and has been in research and development for several years. The LCD-XC is a fully-enclosed headphone with classic Audeze-quality sound for a more exclusive experience in noisy environments.
After consulting many producers and mix engineers using LCD range headphones, we realised that the majority kept them in the studio, where they were used with the single ended (quarter inch jack) cable.

This isnt a downgrade of the LCD-X itself, which still comes with a premium braided quater inch cable, but the flightcase and balanced cable are now not included as standard, but of course can be bought separately if required.

Please note: Travel Case not included.

Exclusive LCD-XC Planar Magnetic Technology


The Sound You Love with The Isolation You Require For the purest, most discerning audiophile listening sessions, open headphones remain the favoured choice, but the closed-back LCD-XC is the finest enclosed headphone experience you'll find.

• 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.

Designed, Engineered and Handcrafted in Audeze's California Factory

Exquisite Craftsmanship The LCD-XC is available in a Carbon finish, or hand-worked Bubinga wood. The enclosures are made from precision-crafted anodized aluminium with sloped earpads of a leather-free super-suede microfiber. The earpads are designed with specially-crafted foam offering the proper firmness and the right acoustic balance.

Look As Good As They Sound The LCD-XC shares the same characteristics as its stable mates, top quality materials and precision design that is second to none. The LCD-XC is also sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, Laptops and smartphones but an external amplifier (such as the excellent iFi 'Zen Dac', Lake People 'G109P' or RME 'ADI-2 DAC') produces better results.
