Rayleigh Hi-Fi loves the fantastic Audeze (pronounced Odyssey) range of headphones. Fresh from a glowing review in What Hi Fi Magazine, the LCD-3 are now on demonstration along with their lower cost siblings, the LCD-2. The Audeze range uses Planar Magnetic Transducers to provide their unique spacious sound that will outperform loudspeakers many times their cost. Available in a range of both open and closed-back designs, with both Travel case and luxury presentation box options.
The Audeze LCD-2 is the most forgiving of the LCD Collection due to a magnetic structure that provides extremely low distortion. Fast and dynamic with terrific bass, the midrange, where most music lives, is superb but also with wonderful highs. The LCD-2 must be driven by an external headphone amplifier or integrated amp.
The Audeze LCD-X is an extremely efficient headphone that extracts the maximum power out of low-powered amplifiers and portable devices. The X is sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and the better smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results.
The closed-back Audeze LCD-XC offers all the benefits of the LCD Collection’s open designs and isolates the listener while reducing ambient noise. No sound escapes the earcups. Again the XC is sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and the better smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results.
The Audeze LCD-3 is their flagship headphone and has been called the best available at any price. At the pinnacle of their LCD Collection, the LCD-3 delivers the highest resolution music experience Audeze offers. The LCD-3 has the longest voice coil and the strongest diaphragm driving force yielding the fastest transient response of all the LCD Collection. Patent-pending Fazor elements guide and manage the flow of sound in the headphone for improved clarity and focus, greater frequency extension top and bottom, and remarkable 3D holographic imaging. The LCD-3 must be driven by an external headphone amplifier or integrated amp.
First discovered by audiophiles, now professional engineers and music producers are using Audeze headphones as their new reference. However, the only way to truly appreciate Audeze headphones is to listen to them.
