The LCD-3 is a time machine that puts you in the room with
your favorite artists and musicians. It’s luxuriously spacious, with powerful
bass, a rich and engaging midrange, and a top-end that draws you into the
music. Its rich, vibrant sound has scale and authority derived from a deep,
ambient soundstage with exciting detail and dynamics. The LCD-3 is said to be
the best in the world and its natural timbre, especially through the midrange,
has been described as a thing of beauty.

Acoustically engineered for accuracy
Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers an astonishingly
Diaphragms thinner than a human hair
We use space-age materials to fabricate an ultra thin diaphragm four times larger
than typical headphones delivering fast response times, dramatically reduced
distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
Near zero distortion
Double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire
diaphragm for near zero distortion.
Patented Fazor™ Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid
resonance producing a more accurate waveform.
and handcrafted in the USA
The LCD-3 is thoroughly engineered for long-term comfort and
spacious, realistic sound. We closely match our planar transducers, and match
our beautiful factory-made wood rings by grain and color. We use tropical West
African Zebrano hardwood -- known as Zebra wood -- not listed in the CITES
Appendices. We also match the earpads by leather texture and color. The new LCD
steel & leather suspension headband provides comfort for hours of listening
pleasure. Choose between genuine leather or leather-free earpads that are
filled with carefully selected acoustical foam for best fit and sound. Pair the
LCD-3 with a quality headphone amplifier or integrated amp for best sound.

You’ll be proud of how the LCD-3 looks and sounds. It’s
imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful hand-made rings. The quality of
the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. Our

beautiful sounding headphone.
