High-Performance planar magnetic headphone.
Audeze (pronounced Odyssey) headphones feature planar magnetic drive units, an advanced and highly beneficial departure from the traditional cone or dome systems used in the majority of loudspeakers and headphones. Planar magnetic drive units use ultra-thin uniformly driven diaphragms to produce outstanding levels of transparency, detail and power. .
Advanced materials science, superior technology and superb craftsmanship combined with hundreds of hours of critical listening, extensive technical measurement and user feedback have gone into developing the Audeze LCD-3, unashamedly created to outperform the already renowned LCD-2 and become the best headphone in the world.
Strongest Driving Force
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.
Audeze headphones are manufactured in the USA to ensure exceptional quality control throughout the production process. Every Audeze headphone is individually tested, burned-in and measured. The written results are included with each headphone to ensure that every owner receives the same exceptional quality.
