The LCD-XC headphones are Audeze's first closed back headphone. Researched and developed for many years, it features exclusive Fazor technology. We recommend this classic headphone with Audeze-quality sound for a more exclusive experience in noisy environments.

Drew recommends the Black Dragon Premium headphone cable V2 for Audeze as his Top Cable Choice for the LCD-XC.

Audeze LCD-XC Headphones Review - 2014 by Hifi Pig

Why the Black Dragon Premium Cable V2 for the Audeze LCD-XC over the Silver Dragon Premium Cable V3?

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 it really comes down to the end result of the music that you are passionate about and listen to most often and which cable provides the best synergy and compliment to your musical taste.

Sharing the same transducer design as the LCD-X, the closed-back XC offers all the benefits of a planar magnetic design with increased isolation and reduced ambient noise for a private and powerful listening experience. Music erupts from a silent background taking on a life of its own. If you’re a DJ or studio engineer, these are also the headphones for you. Impedance is 20 ohms.

"The Black Dragon V2 Premium Headphone Cable really smooths out the high energy top end of the LCD-XC and X 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.

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

For the purest, most discerning audiophile listening sessions, open headphones remain the favored choice, but Audeze's closed-back LCD-XC is one of the best enclosed headphone experience you’ll find.

The enclosures are made from precision-crafted anodized aluminum with sloped earpads of either premium lambskin leather or a leather-free super-suede microfiber.

The earpads are designed with specially-crafted foam offering the proper firmness and the right acoustic balance.

Each LCD-XC includes:

  • ADZ6SE Cable (single-ended 1/4"): 1/4” TRS to 2x4-pin mini XLR
  • ADZ6B4 Cable (balanced 4-pin):  4-pin XLR to 2x4-pin mini XLR
  • 1/4" to 1/8" adapter
  • Ruggedized travel case
  • Personalized frequency response graph
  • Warranty documents
