LCD-3 Headphone

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.

Exclusive LCD-3 planar magnetic technology

Acoustically engineered for accuracy

Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers an astonishingly lifelike sound.

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.

Internal soundwaves

Patented Fazor™ Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance producing a more accurate waveform.

Designed, engineered 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.

Industrial design by Audeze

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 cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created an astonishingly beautiful sounding headphone.

Listen Responsibly 

To avoid damage to your headphones and/or hearing, ensure the volume on your player is turned down before connecting your headphones. After placing headphones on your head, gradually turn up the volume until you reach a comfortable listening level. Exposure to excessive sound levels can cause gradual hearing loss and damage your headphones.

Excessive power levels can damage your headphones. Be sure to stay within the rated power levels of 5W RMS / 15W PEAK to minimize the risk of damage, which is not covered under warranty.
