Audeze LCD-2 Classic Planar Magnetic Headphones with Leather-free earpads
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.
AUDEZE’S PLANAR MAGNETIC TECHNOLOGY
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.
More on the LCD-2 Classic Headphone
The reissue of our vintage original model, with the wonderful warm tonality of the LCD-2 headphone without Fazors. Note: this is slightly warmer sounding than our regular LCD-2.
Incredible bass response due to the 100mm Planar Magnetic drivers – our Planar Magnetic drivers have superior impulse response, and make the headphones sound much more realistic.
Our exclusive glass-infused nylon rings are rugged and improve the sound quality.
Comes with our new steel suspension headband and leather-free memory foam earpads for added comfort. Rugged travel case is available separately: SKU #CSE1019-KT
Hand crafted in California: Every LCD-X headphone is engineered and meticulously handcrafted then rigorously tested and calibrated before leaving our Southern California facility. This ensures your Audeze headphones will sound incredible from the first moment you listen to them, and many years after.
