About the Audeze LCD-2 Closed-back

Intimate listening with wide-open sound

Though less than a decade old, the original Audeze LCD-2 open-backs are already considered a classic among high-end headphone enthusiasts. But you can only really only use them in a personal setup where you can't disturb others — sound goes in and out freely. The LCD-2 Closed-backs are designed those of us who do most of our listening in places like my crowded office. They offer more privacy, yet still produce Audezes' signature spacious, three-dimensional soundstage.

Intimate listening with wide-open sound

Though less than a decade old, the original Audeze LCD-2 open-backs are already considered a classic among high-end headphone enthusiasts. But you can only really only use them in a personal setup where you can't disturb others — sound goes in and out freely. The LCD-2 Closed-backs are designed those of us who do most of our listening in places like my crowded office. They offer more privacy, yet still produce Audezes' signature spacious, three-dimensional soundstage.

They also deliver incredible imaging with a great deal of clarity. The open-back version sounds a little more articulate in the highs, but this closed-back model gives you stronger bass and more forward-sounding vocals. Just remember: even with the more convenient closed-back design, you'll still need a headphone amplifier to properly drive these high-performance headphones.

Audeze's planar magnetic technology offers lifelike sound

Audeze planar magnetic headphones are known for accuracy and extended frequency response. Unlike the dynamic drivers found in most headphones, planar magnetic drivers rely on a thin diaphragm with a large surface area to generate sound. The circuit is etched across the entire surface of an ultra-thin diaphragm, which is suspended between two large magnets.

The LCD-2 headphones use a powerful magnetic field, which results in extremely low distortion even at high volume. When the circuit receives an audio signal, it interacts with the magnetic field, thus causing the diaphragm to move back and forth. This results in sound that is incredibly lifelike and spacious — and worthy of fresh listens to all your favorite music.

Exquisite craftsmanship

Audeze makes large over-ear headphones that they know will be worn for long listening sessions. So they meticulously engineered the lightweight nylon headband. It puts less pressure on the sensitive areas around your ears. Over-padded leather-free earcups help further distribute the LCD-2's weight properly.

Features

Overview: The Audeze LCD-2 over-ear headphones feature high-performance planar magnetic drivers that provide a spacious, musical sound with better dynamics and a wide frequency response. This Closed Back version of the LCD-2 features a spring steel suspension headband and soft black leather-free ear pads. The headphones comes with a detachable 6.5' braided cable with a straight 1/4" plug. The cable attaches to the headphones by dual 4-pin mini-XLRs.

Planar Magnetic Technology: The LCD-2s are acoustically engineered to deliver beautiful, natural sound. The 106mm (4.17") diameter diaphragms are four times larger than the drivers in a typical headphone, and are thinner than a human hair. These ultra-light diaphragms deliver an amazingly fast response for near zero distortion, higher resolution, and lifelike imaging. The double-sided Fluxor Magnet arrays nearly double the driving force across the diaphragm to give you superb accuracy without distortion. The internal sound waves are guided by patented Fazor Elements which eliminate resonance and produce a more accurate waveform. The LCD-2 headphones are sensitive enough to be driven directly by smartphones or tablets, however, for best performance, a high-quality external headphone amplifier or integrated amp is recommended.

Design: The LCD-2 features a closed-back design to increase isolation and reduced ambient noise. The headphones are engineered and handcrafted in the USA with closely matched planar transducers for consistent sound.

  • Frequency Response: 10Hz to 50kHz
  • Transducer Size: 106mm
