Audeze LCD-3 Planar Magnetic Headphone

Material

The design of our LCD-3 has remained largely unchanged since its inception, and for good reason. This headphone has long been a customer favorite due to its high resolution, wide soundstage, and slightly “warm” midrange. The depth and impact of the LCD-3 never fails to satisfy even the most discerning ears.

We cover 3 years for the drivers and 1 year for the rest of the parts, and this begins from the original date of purchase. Warranty on Mobius is one year for all parts. This is for factory defect only, not wear and tear or cosmetic damage from use. Please note that we consider eartips, earlocks and earhooks to be "consumable items" and offer no warranty on those.

Unsurpassed Sound

The Audeze LCD-3 provides the highest level of audio quality, unsurpassed bass extension, exceptional treble and the best mid-range you will find in headphones. Through the dedication of our research and development team we were able to take the best practices of our flagship LCD-2 product and make our Audeze LCD-3 planar magnetic diaphragm even thinner and control it through an even more efficient magnetic structure.

 

Design and Construction

The ear cups of the LCD-3 are made from precision crafted, hand-selected Zebrano wood with sloped ear pads made premium lambskin leather. The Premium lambskin ear pads have been designed with specially crafted foam to offer the right amount of firmness and acoustical balance. With intense color variation that ranges from light to dark, the Zebra Wood (Zebrano) complements the LCD-3 and was chosen specifically for its appearance. Nothing matches the warmth and sheer luxury of natural wood.

Audeze’s flagship headphone has literally been called the greatest headphone in the world. The LCD-3, our highest resolution headphone, features the longest voice-coil and the strongest driving force on its diaphragm. At the pinnacle of our LCD Collection, the LCD-3 delivers a dynamic sound and a wide, enveloping soundstage so you’re emotionally connected to artist and music. For best performance the LCD-3 should be driven by high-quality external headphone amplifier or integrated amp. Impedance is 110 ohms.

The LCD-3 delivers the highest resolution music experience of all our headphones. The sound is always musical, spacious, ultra-realistic, with powerful bass, a rich and engaging midrange, and a top end that pulls you into the music. For the best results Audeze recommends pairing the LCD-3 with an external headphone amplifier.

When Audeze started designing the LCD-3 professional reference headphones, the goal was very clear, it must be the best. No compromise when it comes to the quality of sound.

The LCD-3 provides the highest level of audio quality, unsurpassed bass extension, exceptional treble and the best mid-range. Innovations Every Day. Audeze aspires to deliver extraordinary products through research.
