Audeze LCD-4

 

Audeze (pronounced "odyssey") is an American company that's fast forging a name for itself with a rapidly expanding range of high-end headphones that use planar magnetic drivers. And at the very top of Audeze's audio tree are the LCD-4.

In so many ways, the Audeze LCD-4 are the finest headphones that money can buy. Only a slightly recessed upper mid-range lets them down.

A cold night of flagships: Audeze LCD-4 the warm blanket

 

"In a cold world of flagships, the LCD-4 gives me the warmth I have been asking for." -Probably someone (photography by Regan Hulvey) I think today is a great day to love headphones. I think today is an awesome day to sit back and enjoy one of the many...

Instrument separation that can't keep me separated • A sound signature that doesn't know the definition of fatigue • Alluring voice reproduction

Some might find their weight a little heavy • Not exciting, extremely laid back • Slight confusion in the treble area • Price

One of the best sounding headphones on the planet

 

Introduction It has been a little over ten years since I listened to Rust In Peace in its entirety through Sennheiser's much coveted Orpheus system. And since then, I have been spending the better part of the last decade trying to recapture that sound....

Unbelievable detail and tonal accuracy, the midrange is a bona fide controlled substance, accurate and extremely deep bass, luxurious craftmanship

Price, slightly recessed treble compared to the rest of its response

The smoothest ever.

 

I was very excited to try the LCD-4 after hearing about the improvements to the sound Audeze has made and reports that it is the best of the line yet. Comfort: The headband is great and clamp-free for those that despise clamp. However the cups are...

Liquid smooth and grain free. Zero clamping force

Headbanging is impossible
