Audeze - LCD-X - Planar Magnetic Headphones
With the LCD-X, Audeze brings out yet another addition to the LCD line-up that promises to surpass all that came before it. With new technology and new materials, the LCD-X goes to places that you couldn’t have imagined and gives you an auditory experience par excellence.
The Audeze LCD-X exploits the planar magnetic technology that has been the signature of this line to great effect. It uses ultra-thin large diaphragms enclosed in a double-sided magnetic structure to produce an incredibly accurate reproduction. It is also the most neutral of all the headphones in the LCD line, giving you amazing clarity.
The transducer in the LCD-X has just been developed and is made of a lighter and thinner material than has been the norm so far. The proprietary patent-pending Fazor elements also do a lot to improve the sound quality by directing the sound flow coming from the magnetic structure, which they are placed next to. Not only do they improve the focus and provide more frequency extension but also give unmatched 3D holographic imaging. The result is a soundstage and imaging that is beyond breath-taking. You get a sense of space that feels more as though you are in a room listening to speakers than wearing headphones. The 3D holographic imaging ensures that each sound is not merely discernable but arranged with respect to the other sounds and makes you want to lay back, relax and enjoy your favourite music.
The looks of the Audeze LCD-X have also changed. The LCD-X ear cups are made of gray or black polished anodized aluminium and are still broad enough to encompass the entire ear. The ear pads are made of leather. For those who prefer otherwise, microsuede ear pads are available. The pads are ergonomically designed to ensure the most complete and comfortable fit for your ears. The foam in the ear pads is specially designed to be firm and provide balance in terms of sound.
The newest thing about the Audeze LCD-X is that it can be connected directly to smartphones and portable music players for a superior session of listening to music. However, it performs at its best when connected to an external amplifier.
The package comes with a 2.5m ¼” to dual 4-pin mini XLR cable and a 2.5m 4-pin XLR to dual 4-pin mini-XLR cable. It also contains a 3.5mm ¼” stereo adapter, and the whole thing comes with a professional and sturdy travel case.
The Audeze LCD-X maintains the reputation for the best sound that Audeze has cemented over the years. It also clearly indicates the mastery of Audeze in this field. Worth every penny, the Audeze LCD-X will give you a musical experience you’ve never had before.
