The LCD-2 is the state-of-the-art Planar Magnetic Headphone that features the exclusive Fazor technology from Audeze.

Features the new steel and leather suspension headband.

State-of-the-Art Design

Audeze LCD-2 is the original and game-changing product that propelled Audeze into a world of rave reviews from audiophiles and review magazines alike. The beautifully hand-crafted LCD-2 delivers audiophile quality, low-distortion sound that beautifully articulates the power and nuance of your favorite music.

The Audeze LCD-2 transducers are the most forgiving of the LCD Collection, with an exclusive magnetic structure providing completely uniform magnetic flux distribution across the diaphragm. The full sonic potential of the LCD-2 is revealed when driven by an external headphone amplifier or integrated amp. Impedance is 70 ohms. Every component of the LCD-2 is precision engineered with one goal in mind: Recreate the sound exactly like the artist intended.

LCD 2 combines leading edge technology and development with knowledge, feedback, and suggestions from an on-going dialogue with Sound Engineers and Audiophiles. The Audeze LCD2 uses a proprietary thin film diaphragm that is housed between a unique super efficient push-pull magnetic structure. Audeze's manufacturing process, combined with the advanced materials and technology, produces extremely accurate and incredible sounding headphones.

The LCD-2s are made of hand-selected Carribean Rosewood. The sloped earpads are made of premium lambskin leather with specially selected foam to offer the right amount of firmness.

Known for their tight, extended bass response, smooth, inviting midrange, and warm high frequencies, the LCD-2 headphones offer a listening experience that makes believers out of even casual music listeners. For the best performance, the LCD-2 requires an external headphone amplifier.

Openback Circumaural Design

Specially designed self closing, acoustically transparent magnetic structure with highest grade Neodymium magnets.

Planar Magnetic Transducer

Left and rear transducers have matched sensitivity and frequency response within +/- 0.5 dB.

Increased Diaphragm Area

Large diaphragm area creates plane sound waves that enter ear canals the same way as it happens in real environment.

Drew recommends the Silver Dragon V3 Premium Audeze Headphone Cable or the Black Dragon V2 Premium Headphone Cable for Audeze as the ULTIMATE upgrade for the Audeze LCD-2 Rev. 2 headphones.
