The daily use of LCD headphones over the years lends itself
to the occasional need for headband replacement. As such, Audeze offers
hand-crafted non-leather headband replacements for our LCD line of planar
We spent time carefully designing and selecting materials for the assembly of
our headband. At its core the headband is constructed with heat-treated spring
steel that is powder coated to prevent corrosion. This base is then padded with
foam and (as outlined in our earpad replacement) wrapped in leather-free
microsuede to create the perfect, comfortable fit.
Microsuede (Leather Free)
A number of you have told us you’d like an alternative to our leather products
and we’ve responded by offering a leather-free microsuede (faux suede) option.
The same care and diligence was applied to finding the perfect
non-leather material fit for our headphones.
To ensure your headphones are comfortable even during long listening sessions
we tried dozens of foam material before choosing an appropriate match.
The gentle bumps on the underside of the headband are where high-density
memory foam cushioning has been attached to offer the right amount of support.
Inspected by Hand
Our material experts carefully inspect each piece by hand so they can examine
each and every detail. This ensures every headband is free from scratches,
blemishes, uneven stitches, dots, or deformation common in lesser earpads.
