Audeze is one of our best selling headphone brands. Stationed in California, Audeze is known for producing some of the best headphones in the audiophile market. The LCD collection offers a range of both open and closed back designs that will fit any music taste.
We have created Dragon Headphone cables specifically designed for Audeze headphones. We recommend the Silver Dragon V3 Premium for the LCD-2 & LCD-3. The Silver Dragon has great detail and energy which is a great candidate for warmer sounding headphones like the planar-magnetic Audeze LCD-2 & LCD-3.
For the Audeze LCD-X & LCD-XC we recommend the Black Dragon V2 Premium for Audeze. The Black Dragon has a warmer sound signature over the Silver Dragon. Since the Audeze LCD-X & LCD-XC have more treble extension over other Audeze headphones, the smoother Black Dragon characteristics are a great match.
The Audeze LCD Comparison
The LCD Collection is Audeze"s best selling series of headphones. Every Audeze LCD headphone incorporates Audeze"s Fazor technology.

What is Fazor Technology?
Audeze"s patent-pending Fazor technology is an innovative way to improve the clarity and focus of the LCD collection. While these headphones are already so clear and precise, the Fazor elements take them just a step farther.
The two Fazor elements are placed just outside the two magnet structures that surround the diaphragm in each capsule. They guide and manage the flow of sound around the magnets. Fazors are standard on all LCD headphones.1
Audeze LCD-X with Fazor Technology
Benefits of Fazor:
- Loads diaphragm with a symmetrical acoustic load
- Improves acoustic impedance-matching
- Extends high frequency response and increases efficiency
- Acoustically transparent
- Sound waves generated by the surface of the moving diaphragm precisely pass through the magnetic structure
- Improves phase response at high frequencies
- Eliminates edge-diffraction of sound waves around magnetic structures
- Sound waves generated by large planar magnetic diaphragms pass through magnetic structures without disturbance
- Reduces phase distortion at high frequencies
- Improved Impulse response
- Planar element settle faster with less ringing
