The LCD-4 is the latest reference headphone in Audeze's collection. Using its extensive research to leap forward in terms of sound quality, they represent a breakthrough in high-res sound and imaging and offer an open midrange and treble atop a hefty bass. But that's not to say this pair isn't stylish, too - the mixture of wood-grain accents and leather detailing creates a beautiful two-tone look.
The LCD-4, Audeze’s new reference headphone, is the result of dedicated research and development and advancements in materials science. It features our amazingly thin nano-grade diaphragms and unique Double Fluxor magnet arrays for the most powerful magnetic flux density in existence, an incredible 1.5 Tesla! It also features a new comfortable suspension-type carbon fiber and leather headband and delivers breathtaking high resolution sound, imaging and transparency, with exciting dynamics. It sounds incredibly open in the midrange and treble, and coupled with Audeze’s powerful bass removes the boundaries between artist and listener. It outperforms any other in its class like electrostatics or dynamic driver headphones. The LCD-4 is the most advanced planar magnetic technology to date.
The Premium Cable
The Premium Cable features cryogenically-treated four-conductor stranded wire, each wire consisting of a large number of extremely fine strands of silver-plated single-crystal OCC copper with a combined cross section equivalent to AWG 20 that ensures low resistance and negligible signal loss.
