Description

When Audeze started designing the LCD-3 professional reference headphone, the goal was very clear: it must be the absolute best. Through uncompromised standards the LCD-3 provides the highest level of audio quality, unsurpassed bass extension, exceptional treble and the best mid-range you will find in headphones. The all new LOTUS diaphragm uses a special alloy for conductive traces giving us greater control and lower distortion (translation: audio that sounds like the original studio recording).

The LCD-3 has astonishingly dynamic enveloping sound with powerful bass, an attractive, inviting midrange and open extended highs. Audeze's research and development team took the popular LCD-2 headphones and created the Audeze LCD-3 with a thinner planar magnetic diaphragm controlled by an even more efficient magnetic structure.

The earcups of the LCD-3 are made from precision-crafted, hand-selected Zebrano wood with sloped ear pads of either premium lambskin leather or a leather-free microsuede. The ear pads are designed with specially-crafted foam offering the best firmness and acoustic balance.

Word on the Street:

“I have never heard a set of headphones that got even remotely close to the sound of live music the way this one does and ...if you want the very best, get the LCD-3s.”

Steve Guttenberg - CNET

 

“The LCD-3's natural timbre, especially throughout the midrange, was a thing of beauty and one that is hard to go without once experienced.”

Andrew Robinson - hometheaterreview.com
