Audeze LCD2 headphones


A pair of way-out wooden cans

Audeze LCD2 Classic review: these cans will turn you into an audiophile


These headphones live up to their name

Can’t get better bass for the price ; Comfortable and well-built ; Expansive soundstage

Huge ; No protective case ; Not much noise isolation

What the LCD2 Classics achieve is a bridging of the traditional gap between audiophiles and casual music listeners. I have sampled the extravagant extremes of personal audio, such as Focal’s $4,000 Utopias, and there’s nothing I’m missing when stepping...

Comfortable. ; Durable design. ; Open sound quality.

Poor isolation by design. ; Bulky and heavy headphones.

Review: Audeze LCD-2 headphones


There are people out there who love big speakers, and who spend a fortune on them, but if you need to cut the sound out or just want to listen to a recording intimately, a pair of $1300 headphones might be just what you need to look for.

Breathtaking sound, close to being there and listening; Practically perfect in audio quality and beautifully clear; So balanced; Well made; Very, very comfortable;

Really needs an amp to drive them; They look very strange; The LCD2 headphones are massive, and the sheer size may put some people off; Proprietary cable; Very, very, very expensive;

Audez'e LCD-2 Impressions


I really won't call this a full review, mostly due to the limited time I had with the headphone. Normally I get to keep a headphone for a minimum of 1-2 weeks for a full

Best sounding headphones under £1000


I tested several pairs of headphones before making this purchase and I can honestly say there isn't a set under £1000 with better sound quality than these. They are a little heavy and probably not portable, but for listening at home these are as good...

A Warm Hug of a Headphone


I would like to thank the guys over at Audio Sanctuary in New Malden, London, for lending me their display unit of the Audeze LCD-2 (2016 Edition) for a review. Check them out at and do visit their brick-and-mortar...

Rich and warm tone, full-bodied low end, good detail, forgiving of many genres and poor mastering, stellar all-rounder in its pricerange

Weight distribution, tight clamp, earpads held in place with adhesive (tape or glue), soundstage a bit lacking
