Audeze headphones have revolutionized the recording industry. Many of today’s biggest hits were mixed, mastered, and tested with our headphones. Amazingly, the engineers and producers behind these hits had never used headphones in their workflow until they heard Audeze!
For a limited time, we’re offering music creators and enthusiasts everywhere the opportunity to experience the award-winning sound of the LCD-XC at theprice of $1299.This Creator Package gives you all the great music of the LCD-XC, but does not include the travel case (the headphones are otherwise exactly the same).
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.
"Dynamic impact is astonishing, you never get the feeling you’re approaching the limits of what it can do."
Exclusive LCD-XC planar magnetic technology
Acoustically engineered for accuracy Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers clear and accurate sound that reveals everything on the recording.
Diaphragms thinner than a human hair We use space-age materials in an ultra-thin diaphragm 4X larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution, and improved imaging.
Near zero distortion Double-sided magnet arrays deliver a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion.
Internal soundguides Patented Fazor™ elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonances for a more accurate waveform.
Engineered and handcrafted in our California factory
The LCD-XC headphone is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-built using the finest, most luxurious materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. We closely match the transducers within +/- 1dB (just like the other LCD series models), then match the gorgeous African Bubinga wood earcups. You may choose real leather or our leather-free earpads/headband option. No matter which you chose, our earpads are filled with carefully chosen acoustical foam for best fit and sound. You can pair the LCD-XC with portable devices, but it sounds best driven by a quality amplifier.
Industrial Design by Audeze
You’ll be proud of how the LCD-XC looks and sounds; it’s imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful earcups that are manufactured at our facility. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. Our cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created a breathtakingly beautiful sounding headphone.

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.
