This is our most popular headphone, driven by its popularity with audiophiles, but especially music producers and mastering engineers. Its overall tonality is neutral, which helps ensure that music mixed on
it will translate across most speaker systems. The LCD-X's excellent transient response and accuracy allow producers and mastering engineers to hear all the details in their mixes. And with the LCD-X, you can hear their recordings as they intended.

LCD-X leverages patented Audeze technologies, including Ultra-Thin Uniforce™ diaphragms, Fazor waveguides, and powerful neodymium magnets to deliver extremely accurate and detailed sound. The sophisticated planar magnetic drivers achieve high efficiency with low impedance, such that LCD-X can deliver great sound from nearly any device with a headphone output. Together, these innovations enable audio professionals to efficiently get their mix done right in a variety of settings.

Audeze has improved the LCD-X over the years, lowering the weight and increasing comfort. It features a suspension headband for even weight distribution and highly cushioned premium earpads for support. The neutral tuning and low distortion prevent listening fatigue, so those late-night sessions never have to end.
