The LCD-XC shares the same drivers and basic construction as the LCD-X, lending it a similar level of detail and transparency. Its closed-back design adds both isolation and a slight lift in bass response between 120-200Hz, making electric bass even more defined. If you want to hear Marcus Miller playing bass right next to you, the LCD-XC is your headphone.

• The Premium LCD-XC comes with both Balanced and Single-ended cables, the 1/4" to 1/8" stereo adapter, and our premium travel case.
• The Creator Pack comes with the Standard Single-ended cable and our new economy travel case.

  • Extra-large 106mm planar drivers tuned for accuracy, built for precision
  • The closed-back design blocks out external noise and prevents microphone bleed in recordings
  • Highly efficient, easy to drive from any interface, console, or device
  • Includes our braided OCC copper 4-pin XLR combo cable with single-ended 1/4" adapter and standard LCD travel case

LCD-XC 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-XC 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-XC 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.
