The Best in the World
The LCD-3 is the flagship model of the Audeze headphone colection. Many of the world's most respected audiophiles consider the LCD-3 to be the best headphones in the world. Customer's can expect unmatched soundstaging, imaging, and detail from this product.
Strongest Driving Force
For the LCD-3, Audeze created the longest voice coil to ever be used in an LCD headphones. The high driving force of the diaghram also gives the LCD-3 the most impressive transient response time of the entire Audeze collection.
Audeze developed patent-pending Fazor technology for use in the LCD-3. This technology improves performance and clarity across the frequency range, resulting in imaging performance previously unheard of in planar magnetic headphones. This allows the LCD-3 to bring the best performance out of premium headphones amplifiers and DACs.
