The LCD-X is incredibly dynamic, nimble, neutral and transparent, accurately revealing everything on the recording. It quickly became the ultimate tool for recording engineers, musicians and audiophiles alike for its clean, accurate sound. The sense of space is enormous, the midrange and high frequencies offer fantastic detail so you can hear further into the recording with more air and separation between performers.

• Arnie Nudell, The Absolute Sound:
...the headphone that presented music in the most astonishingly accurate way is the Audeze LCD-X.
• Sound on Sound:
"To call the LCD-Xs good would be an understatement on a par with describing the Beatles as popular, because they're not good. They're amazing."-
• Trusted Reviews
"The sound is wide and deep... it sounds bigger and better with superb separation. The mids offer simply fantastic detail and contouring that you just don't get in 99.5 per cent of headphones."
• Steve Guttenberg, CNET
"The subtle gradations of dynamics in piano recordings are a real thrill... you'll realize how most headphones gloss over that aspect of sound reproduction."
The Audeze LCD-X - High Performance Reference Planar Magnetic Headphones with Rugged Pelican HARDIGG Travel Case are designed for professional mixing, mastering, and reference level personal Hi-Fi listening when connected to a low powered external headphone amplifier or portable device. The headphones are sensitive enough to be driven by portable music players such as iPods, iPhones, and other smartphones. Instead of utilizing traditional dynamic cone drivers, the headphones implement a neodymium magnetic planar transducer design to deliver a frequency response of 5 to 50,000 Hz with a THD of less than 1%, an impedance of 70 Ω, an efficiency of 95 dB per 1 mW, and a total output SPL of over 130 dB when driven by 15 watts.
Magnetic planar technology differs from traditional dynamic cone designs by suspending a thin lightweight diaphragm within a parallel magnetic plane comprised of an array of magnets. The diaphragm is much lighter when compared to a traditional dynamic cone and has a printed circuit spread across a thin-film substrate on the surface of the diaphragm as opposed to a cone attached to a voice coil. When the audio signal from the amplifier reaches the circuit, it magnetizes the diaphragm within the field and produces sound.
The benefits of a magnetic planar design include faster transient response due to the lighter diaphragm, a wide frequency with low distortion, better heat dissipation, fewer moving parts for greater durability without the kind of sonic degradation that cones are susceptible to, and better amplifier compatibility because the circuit functions as an almost entirely restive load.
The magnetic structure creates a uniform magnetic field across the diaphragm without the need for additional ferromagnetic material traditionally found in other planar headphones to remove magnetic interference, reduce harmonic distortion, and lower overall weight. The headphones also feature Audeze's patent-pending Fazor elements that guide and manage the flow of sound through the earcups for a more enveloping sound stage and improved frequency extension.
