Audeze LCD-XC Reference Closed Ear Planar Magnetic Headphones

These closed-back LCD-XC's from Audeze pack tons of performance into a well-priced package! Sensitive enough to be driven with just about any amp out there, or even a portable device, these planar magnetic headphones will be a sweeping upgrade for any enthusiast who like their headphones to be critical, neutral, and accurate to the original recording!



The closed-back LCD-XC was created based on our core customers’ feedback. It delivers all the benefits of the LCD-X while isolating the listener and reducing ambient noise for a private listening experience, a significant achievement due to the inherent challenges of enclosing our planar transducers. The LCD-XC is the finest closed-back planar available, sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and mobile devices, but an external amplifier produces better sonic results.
