Product Description

Audeze LCD-XC, BL, BB, TC Bubinga Planar Magnetic Headphones - Closed-Back Headphones - Sound Engineer, Musician or Audiophile Headphones - Hand-Built, Headphones Made in USA


Audeze started in 2008 in a garage (of course!) when its founders came across a revolutionary flexible circuit material developed for NASA. Realizing this could be a great advance in planar magnetic technology, they first started to make pro audio PA speakers, but dropped this project and started making headphones – the LCD-1.

Taking this first headphone to the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, it was a tremendous hit, and that success launched the company. Hanging on that garage wall was the 2001 Space Odyssey poster, and that inspired the company’s name. The founders wanted a name that had something to do with a “journey through audio,” so Odyssey would be perfect, and that’s how the name Audeze (pronounced “odyssey”) was born.


Acoustically engineered for accuracy
Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers clear and accurate sound that reveals everything on the recording.

Diaphragms thinner than a human hair
We use space-age materials in an ultra thin diaphragm four times larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.

Near zero distortion
Double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion.

Fluxor Magnet Arrays
Patented Fluxor Magnet Arrays focus the magnetic flux nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for even lower distortion and greater accuracy.

Internal soundwaves
Patented Fazor Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance for a more accurate waveform.

More on the LCD-XC Headphones

The LCD-XC Headphones

The LCD-XC is incredibly dynamic, neutral, and transparent - accurately revealing everything on your recordings. It has quickly become the ultimate tool for recording engineers, musicians, and audiophiles for its clean, accurate sound. The sense of space is enormous, and the midrange and high frequencies offer fantastic detail so you can hear further into the recording with more air and separation between instruments. The LCD-XC is the closed-back version of the X for noisy environments.

Industrial Design by Audeze

You’ll be proud of how the LCD-XC looks and sounds; it’s imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful earcups that are manufactured at our facility. The quality of the entire structure provides years of trouble-free listening. Our cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created a breathtakingly beautiful sounding headphone.

Engineered and Handcrafted in Audeze's California Factory

The LCD-XC headphone is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-built using the finest, most luxurious materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. We closely match the transducers, then match the gorgeous equatorial African Bubinga wood earcups. Bubinga is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. We match earpads by leather texture and color. Choose real lambskin leather or microsuede headbands. The earpads are filled with carefully chosen acoustical foam. You can pair the LCD-XC with portable devices but it sounds best driven by a quality amplifier like our King Headphone Amplifier for best results.
