The LCD-2 is the most forgiving of poor recordings in the LCD Collection with a beautiful, musically rich presentation that communicates the warmth, power and glory of music.
"In a number of ways it was the best headphone I'd ever measured."
Exclusive LCD-2 planar magnetic technology
Acoustically engineered for beautiful sound Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers an astonishingly lifelike sound.
Diaphragms thinner than a human hair We use space-age materials in a near weightless diaphragm that’s four times larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
Near zero distortion Double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion.
Internal soundwaves Patented Fazor™Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance producing a more accurate waveform.
Engineered and handcrafted in the USA
The LCD-2 is thoroughly engineered for long-term comfort and beautiful sound. We closely match our planar transducers, and match our beautiful factory-made wood rings by grain and color. We use Shedua wood from tropical west Africa It’s not on the watchlist and is reported by the IUCN as being a species of least concern. We also match the earpads by leather texture and color. You can choose lambskin leather or Microsuede headbands and earcups that are filled with foam carefully selected for best sound and contribute to the level of comfort during long listening sessions. Pair the LCD-2 with a quality headphone amplifier or integrated amp for best sound.
Industrial design by Audeze
You’ll be proud of how the LCD-2 sounds and it’s also imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful hand-made rings. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. Our cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created an astonishingly 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.
