Audeze LCD-4z | Open-Back Planar Magnetic Headphones
The LCD-4z is almost like an alternate universe version of the LCD-4. It's provides the same level of performance, but with a unique look, an easier to power driver design, and a light weight frame. The LCD-4z adds comfort and convenience into the equation without compromising its top of the line performance.
The LCD-4z is by far Audeze’s most advanced headphone featuring innovative planar magnetic technology that delivers startling dynamics and incredibly open and spacious sound. It features our most advanced diaphragm design; our exclusive nano-scale film actually weighs less than the air it displaces! Benefits include much faster response times for better imaging, and the flattest, deepest, most accurate bass response of any headphone available.
Featuring a new look and greater efficiency, the design and sound of the LCD-4z is sure to thrill! Engineered with a new magnesium housing to produce a light-weight, visually appealing headphone, the LCD-4z maintains the sound signature of LCD-4. We have taken the award-winning design of our top-of-the-line LCD-4 and engineered it with a special 15 ohm voice-coil making it significantly easier to drive than the original LCD-4. The LCD-4z features a dark sleek aesthetic with gold accents. The magnesium rings of the LCD-4z are designed to be strong, lightweight, and non-resonant for a very clean output.
Near weightless nano-scale diaphragm
The LCD-4z features our most advanced diaphragm design; our exclusive nano-scale film actually weighs less than the air it displaces! Benefits include faster response for better transient/impulse response, imaging, and the flattest, deepest, most accurate bass response of any headphone available.
Audeze nearly doubles the magnetic force
Double Fluxor™ Magnet Arrays bring the magnetic flux to 1.5 Tesla, nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for improved transient response and far greater resolution.
Patented Fazor Element waveguide reduces diffraction of soundwaves resulting in improved treble response, transparency and imaging.
Near zero distortion
Combining our Fluxor™ magnet arrays, nano-scale diaphragm, Fazors, Uniforce voice coil, and other features, the LCD-4 and LCD-4z give you even lower distortion and greater accuracy - usually 1/10th the distortion of conventional headphones.
Designed, engineered, and handcrafted in our California factory
The LCD-4z headphone is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-built using the finest materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. We closely match transducers to within +/- 1 dB. 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.
