Audeze is company based in the United States which manufactures world class planar magnetic headphones. These headphones are known for their strong aesthetic appeal and rich sound quality. They have distinguished themselves as leaders in the open-back planar magnetic headphones market, and have released additional closed back models to critical acclaim. We also recommend Audeze headphones for anyone who covets bass performance, as their bass detail and impact are exceptional.
State of The Art
The LCD-4, Audeze’s new reference headphone, is the result of dedicated research and development and advancements in materials science. It features amazingly thin nano-grade diaphragms and unique Double Fluxor magnet arrays for the most powerful magnetic flux density in existence, an incredible 1.5 Tesla! It also features a new comfortable suspension-type carbon fiber and leather headband and delivers breathtaking high resolution sound, imaging and transparency, with exciting dynamics. It sounds incredibly open in the midrange and treble, and coupled with Audeze’s powerful bass removes the boundaries between artist and listener.
