The LCD-4 Reimagined

Easier to Drive

We have taken the award-winning design of our top-of-the-line LCD-4 and engineered it with a special 15-ohm voice-coil making it significantly easier to drive than the original LCD-4. This model does not replace the original 200 ohm LCD-4 but offers a perfect solution for users seeking more headroom.

Bold New Look

The LCD-4z features a dark sleek aesthetic with gold accents. The magnesium rings of the LCD-4z are designed to be strong, lightweight, and non-resonant for a very clean output.

Audeze’s Proprietary Difference

Planar Magnetic Technology

Near weightless nano-scale diaphragm: The LCD-4z features our most advanced diaphragm design; our exclusive nano-scale film actually weighs less than the air it displaces! Benefits include a faster response for better transient/impulse response, imaging, and the flattest, deepest, most accurate bass response of any headphone available.

Audeze nearly doubles the magnetic force: Double Fluxor™ Magnet Arrays bring the magnetic flux to 1.5 Tesla, nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for improved transient response and far greater resolution.

Precise Imaging: Patented Fazor Element waveguide reduces diffraction of soundwaves resulting in improved treble response, transparency and imaging.

Near zero distortion: Combining our Fluxor™ magnet arrays, nano-scale diaphragm, Fazors, Uniforce voice coil, and other features, the LCD-4 and LCD-4z give you even lower distortion and greater accuracy - usually 1/10th the distortion of conventional headphones.

Designed, engineered, and handcrafted in a California factory

The LCD-4z headphone is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-built using the finest materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. We closely match transducers to within +/- 1 dB.

The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. Our cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created a breathtakingly beautiful sounding headphone.

"There’s a reason we called Audeze’s LCD-3 the 'voice of god' headphones in our 2013 review. The decadent handcrafted headphones were less a set of headphones than a stationary listening apparatus designed to reproduce otherworldly sound. But with their mammoth size, hefty weight, and greedy power requirements, they weren’t going far from your listening room.

With the introduction of its power-efficient LCD-4z headphones, Audeze has made that incredible sound portable. With 15-ohm impedance, the LCD-4z can be powered by even a cell phone, providing listeners with fantastic sound without the requirement of a high-output headphone amp.

The sound embodies the very best qualities available from the thin membranes of planar magnetic drivers, carving out every secret, each lonesome detail, and every rushing burst of form and color from your most complex music, stretched across a sprawling soundstage. Unlike many early iterations in the genre, the LCD-4z draw a full pulse of healthy bass, complemented by all the delicacies of the upper frequencies your best recordings can dish out. These are some of the most incredible headphones we’ve ever heard, and they are now even more real-world ready than ever."

Listen Responsibly

To avoid damage to your headphones and/or hearing, ensure the volume on your player is turned down before connecting your headphones. After placing headphones on your head, gradually turn up the volume until you reach a comfortable listening level. Exposure to excessive sound levels can cause gradual hearing loss and damage your headphones.

Excessive power levels can damage your headphones. Be sure to stay within the rated power levels of 5W RMS / 15W PEAK to minimize the risk of damage, which is not covered under warranty.
