Audeze LCD-3 Open-Back Headphones with Leather-Free Earpads and Travel Case

State of the art Planar Magnetic Headphones
MFR# 1002094

Product 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.

The Audeze LCD-3 - Leather Free, with Travel Case comes standard with the following:

  • ADZ6SE Cable (single-ended 1/4"): 1/4” TRS to 2x4-pin mini XLR

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
