Audeze LCD-3 Open Circumaural High-Performance Planar Magnetic Headphones with Travel Case
Audeze LCD-3 Open Circumaural High-Performance Planar Magnetic Headphones
Audeze LLC are a California-based high-end audio manufacturer delivering the most accurate sound reproduction available today. Audeze products are engineered with the latest innovations in materials science and technology matched with precision craftsmanship to produce an astonishingly dynamic and immersive sound. Audeze’s commitment to research and development is reflected in every facet of their made-in-the-USA products.
Audeze’s flagship headphone has literally been called the best in the world. The LCD-3 has the longest voice coil and the strongest diaphragm driving force that yields the fastest transient response of all the LCD designs. At the pinnacle of the LCD Collection, the LCD-3 delivers the highest resolution music experience that Audeze offer. Patent-pending Fazor elements guide and manage the flow of sound in the headphone for improved clarity and focus, greater frequency extension top and bottom, and remarkable 3D holographic imaging. The LCD-3 must be driven by an external headphone amp or integrated amplifier.
Audeze’s patent-pending Fazor elements improve clarity, focus and the already spectacular holographic imaging. Two Fazor elements are placed just outside the two magnet structures that surround the diaphragm. They guide and manage the flow of sound around the magnets and are standard on all LCD headphones.
Strongest Driving Force
The movement of the Audeze LCD3 driver (speaker) is too fast to be seen by the naked eye. In order to visually showcase the precision of our planar magnetic technology, we suspended an Audeze LCD3 driver and covered it with thousands of minuscule colored glass particles. We then fed music to the driver, causing the particles to mimic the motion of sound waves. This process was captured at 2,500 frames per second.
The LCD-3 has astonishingly dynamic enveloping sound with powerful bass, an attractive, inviting midrange and open extended highs. Our research and development team took the popular LCD-2 headphones and created the Audeze LCD-3 with a thinner planar magnetic diaphragm controlled by an even more efficient magnetic structure.
The ear cups of the LCD-3 are made from precision-crafted hand-selected Zebrano wood with sloped ear pads of either premium lambskin leather or a leather-free microsuede. The ear pads are designed with specially-crafted foam offering the best firmness and acoustical balance.
