From Audeze

The beautifully handcrafted LCD-2, the planar magnetic headphone that put Audeze on the high-end map, delivers audiophile quality, low-distortion sound that articulates the power and nuance of your favorite music. 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.

Acoustically engineered for beautiful sound

Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers an astonishingly lifelike sound. 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. Double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion. 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 also match the earpads by leather texture and color. Lambskin leather 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.

Audeze lcd-2

Excellent headphones. Good detail, but not overly analytical. Comfort is good for a heavy headphone.

Excellent Detail, Richness, and Bass.

These headphones to start, are one of the most beautiful pair of headphones. Heavy? Yes. Well Built? Yes. Awesome carrying case? Triple Yes!

With looks out of the way, on to the sound in MY opinion. These are worth every penny and if you can get them open-box, just turn yourself in for theft. I'm not going to dive into the Audiophilic Webster Dictionary, I do enough thinking at work. However, the LCD-2's make music sound damn good at every level. Highs aren't harsh, Bass is slamming and rocks your whole head depending on the content and doesn't bleed into the Mids. Speaking of Mids, they're warm and almost intimate, while the soundstage is wide and still detailed.... okay I may have opened the first page of the Audiophilic Webster Dictionary.

In closing, these headphones will require a good amp to get the best out of them. Solid State and Hybrid amps may be the way to go here. They sound great with R2R Dacs, and incredible with Sabre Chips. I'm sure they sound great with more but I only tested those two. Sabre brings out the details and spacious audio. I will try these out this weekend with the Burson Soloist 3X to see if pure power and those Vivid Opamps makes the LCD-2's even better.

P.S. I saw a few scenes of Dark Knight with the Infamous Joker and these headphones made me feel like I was at the IMAX theater. I kid you not, the layout of these drivers is something special. If you watch movies as well as listen to music, the LCD's are a must buy!

Wanna make your music sound like someone poured honey in your ears? Buy the LCD-2's. I thought I had heard my music before... I was wrong. These things are amazing. I love them.

Fantastic headphones and great service.

Firstly bloom was fantastic to work with. I inquired initially through discord then through email and he helped answer all my questions. Shipping was fast and well packed.
The first couple things about the LCD-2 that struck me when listening to them is the combination of how smooth they are with how much power they have in the low end. Bass is well textured with a pretty strong impact while being extremely smooth and pleasant. The mid range is crisp and realistic but not perfect in the upper mids. It can be improved with some light EQ around the 3-4k area. I personally added a few dB sub 100hz and at 3-4k. This cleans up the mid range helping with female vocals and makes the most of the lows. The highs are great with just enough air. I personally am sensitive to bright headphones and these lie in the perfect spot that I can listen for hours while still sounding great. The soundstage is very good but not as wide as an HD800 or similar. The imaging is great although certain directions aren't perfect. Its more than good enough for gaming though, it feels like cheating in R6 Siege. Separation is great as well. I have never before actually heard the distance between instruments and been able to focus on individual sounds so distinctly. They have held up well for almost a year as my daily drivers. I had a very minor issue with the leather headband but Audeze support handled it perfectly. I would highly recommend the LCD-2 as long as you like a fairly warm sound signature. These are by far the best sounding headphones I have heard and impress me each time I listen to them.
