Meet the headphone that started it all. The LCD-2 was the very first headphone ever sold by Audeze, earning us our coveted position as the world’s leading manufacturer of planar magnetic headphones. Although it’s seen many revisions over the years, the LCD-2 retains the iconic warmth and tonal balance that have made it a customer favorite since its original release in 2008. If you’re looking for a high-end headphone for at home listening that exemplifies the Audeze experience and tradition, look no further than the LCD-2.
The LCD-2 is our original “game-changing” headphone and the one that propelled us into a world of rave reviews.
The LCD-2 is the most forgiving of the LCD Collection due to a magnetic structure that provides extremely low distortion. Fast and dynamic with terrific bass, the midrange - where music lives - is superb as are the golden highs. Our proprietary technology eliminates breakup modes found in other designs and improves clarity.
Focus and Frequency Extension
Patent-pending Fazor elements guide and manage the flow of sound in the headphone for improved focus, greater frequency extension top and bottom and remarkable 3D holographic imaging. The LCD-2 must be driven by an external headphone amplifier or integrated amp.
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.
