B Stock Headphones Straight from Audeze

We're never sure why they're considered B stock, but most items have a small cosmetic imperfection that didn't pass quality control. They carry a full manufacturer's warranty and are guaranteed to work or we'll replace them.

Returns are not accepted on B Stock items.

All B Stock Audeze headphones feature the newer steel and leather suspension headband.

The LCD-X Reference Level headphones feature a newly-developed and processed transducer made of a thinner and a lighter alternative material.

Fazor Revision Technology

Audeze's patent-pending Fazor elements are unique to the LCD-X and LCD-XC and help guide and manage the flow of sound. The result is improved phase response, greater frequency extension, smoother frequency response, and remarkable 3D holographic imaging.

LCD-X is the most neutral of all the LCD Collection, explaining its popularity with audiophiles, recording engineers and musicians alike, for its clarity and fast, accurate dynamics. The X is sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results.

The LCD-X transducer is specifically designed to work with a wide variety of driving sources. From portable players to studio use, the LCD-X provides high volume without a headphone amplifier even though all LCD-series products benefit from a high-quality amp.

The LCD-X earcups are made from polished anodized aluminum with sloped ear pads of either premium lambskin leather or a leather-free super-suede microfiber fabric. The earpads are designed with specially-crafted foam offering the proper firmness and acoustic balance.

Recommendations

Drew recommends the Black Dragon V2 Premium Headphone Cable for Audeze as the best upgrade option for the Audeze LCD-X headphones.

Drew recommends the Black Dragon V2 Premium as his Top Choice for the LCD-X.

Why the Black Dragon V2 Premium over the Silver Dragon V3 Premium?

The LCD-X and LXD-XC have more treble extension over the LCD-2 and LCD-3. Thus, the smoother characteristics of the Black Dragon V2 Premium makes more sense. The Silver Dragon V3 Premium cable is a great choice as well, but for Drew's genre preferences in music, it really comes down to the end result of the music that you are passionate and listen to most often and which cable provides the best compliment to your music.

The LCD-X is a planar magnetic design with an optimized diaphragm trace pattern that extracts the maximum volume from lower-powered amplifiers and portable devices. It’s been said the LCD-X is the most neutral of all our headphones; they’re used by sound engineers and musicians alike to create the most accurate productions. The X and XC are sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and some of the better smartphones. You’ll enjoy a better sonic experience using an external amp, just as with the LCD-2 and LCD-3. Impedance is 20 ohms.

"The Black Dragon V2 Premium Headphone Cable really smooths out the high energy top end while tightening up and controlling the bottom end or bass and it also makes the mid-range more musical."
— Drew Baird, P.E., President of Moon Audio.

Moon Audio has also created the Silver Dragon V3 Headphone Cable or the Silver Dragon V3 Premium Audeze Headphone Cable as upgrade options for the Audeze LCD-X headphones.
