The LCD-XC Closed-Back Headphone is incredibly dynamic, nimble, neutral and transparent, accurately revealing everything on the recording. It quickly became the ultimate tool for recording engineers, musicians, and audiophiles alike for its clean, accurate sound. The closed-back design offers all the benefits of a planar magnetic headphone with increased isolation and greatly reduced ambient noise for a private and powerful listening experience.

Your favorite music erupts from a silent background taking on a life of its own. The sense of space is enormous, the midrange and high frequencies offer fantastic detail so you can hear further into the recording with more air and separation between performers.

Critically Acclaimed LCD-XC Delivers Award-Winning Audiophile Sound

A flagship headphone in its own right. Those looking for the best close-back on the market won’t have to look very far to find value in the XC. Highly recommended.

The best closed-backs I’ve heard … as close as a closed-back model has ever gotten to the awesome spatiality of the best open-back headphones.”

Highly recommended, exceptionally well-made, extremely comfortable, for those wanting an alternative to loudspeakers or the best from a desktop system.”

Overall the sound is well balanced, with accurate bass, and delicate treble. Vocals were razor sharp and dead-center. Even the organ was noticeably just off center to the right. Now that’s great stereo imaging. “

With the LCD-XC you’re an instant member of the luxo club and a posh headfi citizen … Altogether serious and end-of-the-road headphones for those demanding the best.”

Fantastic bass performance, powerful, taut and fast, with real slam, beautifully defined and extremely well differentiated … another of Audeze’s great achievement.”
