"Greatness is apparent straight from the off. Delivers a scale and authority of sound we didn't think headphones could ever manage. A rich, vibrant sound."

"An object lesson in how good headphone bass can be when the response is flat to below audibility and the distortion vanishingly small."

"May be the best of the best"

"The LCD-3 finds the elusive balance between being accurate and highly revealing yet capable of bringing to light all that is good and right in less-than-perfect recordings."

The LCD-3 is Audeze's flagship headphone and some have even called them the best in the world. When partnered with a suitable headphone amplifier and quality source material they can rival full hi-fi systems which work out thousands of pounds more expensive. The LCD-3 offer simply incredible bass and amazingly detailed treble and mid-range. Audeze even include a frequency plot for each planar magnetic driver along with the headphones and match the pair within a ±0.5dB tolerance.

Also included in the box are two pairs of cables, both 2.5 metres long with mini-XLR connectors to fit the headphones and one with a standard ¼" jack and the other with a 4-pin XLR for balanced headphone amps. There's a choice of a smart polished display case or the more practical rugged travel case with foam liner. 

The LCD3 have the capability to take huge changes in dynamics in their stride and transition from a full-blown orchestra to a single flute note as if it were nothing. They sound fantastic whatever music you choose to throw at them - they are not restricted to sounding better with any particular genre, if you want clean, realistic reproduction which will really engage your ears to their fullest extent then look no further.

They're comfortable too - although heavier than some headphones on the market as necessitated by their unique driver design the luxurious pads cup your ears perfectly and the simple adjustment mechanism enables easy but accurate fitting. Real leather or vegan options are available for both the ear pads and headband section.

Planar Magnetic Transducer

Planar Magnetic Transducer

This is an ultra-thin membrane which offers incredibly low total harmonic distortion and capable of stunning sound quality which lies at the heart of the LCD-3's design. Oversized magnetic structures deliver the greatest flux density of any headphone available. The greater the flux density, the better the planar membrane is driven resulting in better transient response.

Fazor Elements

Fazor Elements

Fazors are special acoustical elements positioned on either side of the magnetic structure that enhances transparency by influencing sound waves generated by large planar diaphragms. Benefits include extended frequency response, improved high-frequency extension, phase response, and lowered distortion with better imaging.



Audeze's advanced manufacturing process combined with the latest materials and technology produces extremely accurate and incredible sounding headphones. The LCD Collection, handcrafted in the USA, delivers the listener into a new world of music, full of rich detail, bass clarity and overall accuracy.
