Audeze LCD-4 Planar Magnetic Open-back Headphones

Audeze LCD-4 Headphones

Audeze announced $4,000 audiophile headphones that claims to be the best in the world. The new LCD-4 open-back reference headphone is meticulously hand-built using the finest, most luxurious materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. The oversize Double Fluxor Magnetic Arrays deliver the greatest flux density of any headphone, an astounding 1.5 Tesla for oustanding control of the driver. That’s important as the greater the flux density, the better the control of the planar diaphragm yielding significantly better transient response. Audeze claims LCD-4 has the flattest, deepest, most accurate bass response of any headphone on the market.

The LCD-4 features all our advanced technologies including Fazor™ Elements and nano-scale Uniforce™ Diaphragms. The package includes a 1/4in to dual 4-pin mini-XLR Premium LCD Headphone Cable, and a professional travel case. Options include a 2.5m 1/4in to dual 4-pin mini-XLR and a 2.5m 4-pin XLR to dual 4-pin mini-XLR cable.

Availability
“There aren’t many LCD-4s available right now,” says Audeze CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram. “This is the result of our proprietary and ultra-precise methodology for voice-coil production. It takes two weeks for each diaphragm, for example,” he continued. “We use woods like Cocobolo and Macassar Ebony that are harder to machine and finish so it takes as long as 4 to 5 weeks for each run. Even the metal grills take more time than usual as we triple-chrome-plate them for greater luster.”
