The beautifully handcrafted LCD-3 is the planar magnetic headphone that put Audeze on the high-end map. It delivers audiophile quality, low-distortion sound that articulates the power and nuance of your favorite music. The LCD-3 is the most forgiving of poor recordings, with a beautiful, musically rich presentation that communicates the warmth, power and glory of music.The LCD-3 is thoroughly engineered for long-term comfort and beautiful sound. Audeze closely matches their planar transducers, and their beautiful factory-made wood rings by grain and color, and use earcups that are filled with foam carefully selected for best sound and the level of comfort during long listening sessions.Audeze’s advanced Planar Magnetic Technology is truly the next level, delivering astonishingly clear and accurate sound using space-age materials in a near weightless diaphragm that’s four times larger than typical headphones. The patented Uniforce voice-coil technology delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion, while the patented Fluxor Magnet Arrays focus the magnetic flux – nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for even lower distortion and greater accuracy. Patented Fazor Elements also guide the internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance; producing a more accurate waveform.
