The LCD-X is an extremely efficient headphone that extracts the maximum power out of low-powered amplifiers and portable devices. It's also the most neutral of all the LCD Collection, explaining its popularity with audiophiles, recording engineers and musicians alike, for its clarity and fast, accurate dynamics. The X is sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results.
Package includes two professional studio-quality flat straight cables. Each cable ends with two female 4-pin mini XLRs to attach the male connectors on each each earpiece. Cables compatible with 1/4" connector or XLR plug for balanced use.
These heavy duty headphones will be delivered in a military grade rugged travel case at no additional cost.
Fazors are special acoustical elements positioned on either side of the magnetic structure. They enhance transparency by affecting the sound waves generated by large planar diaphragms. A few of the benefits include extended frequency response, improved high-frequency extension, and lowered distortion, with better imaging.
Earpads are sloped delivering the right amount of firmness and acoustical balance. To ensure your headphones are comfortable even during long listening sessions Audeze tried dozens of earpad foam material before choosing an open-cell polyurethane.
Audeze earpads aren’t just comfortable and luxurious, but they also isolate against noise with a tight seal that improves sound quality and helps supply our famous bass.
You can either select extra soft premium lambskin earcups or leather-free microsuede.
(All earpad materials are hypoallergenic and resistant to static electricity)
To ensure your headphones are comfortable even during long listening sessions Audeze tried dozens of foam material before choosing an appropriate match. The gentle bumps on the underside of the headband are where high-density memory foam cushioning has been attached to offer the right amount of support.

Audeze worked with their leather supplier for three years to find the perfect material for our headphone earpads and headbands. Audeze finally found a luxurious, soft and supple black lambskin leather, and a slightly more expensive, lightly dyed and even more supple brown lambskin leather that were the perfect fit for LCD headphones. Both leathers are imported from a remote region in Italy.
Microsuede (Leather Free)
A faux suede option is available for those of you who asked for an alternative. The same care and diligence was applied to finding the perfect non-leather material fit for our headphones.
Inspected by Hand
Audeze material experts carefully inspect each piece by hand so they can examine each and every detail. This ensures every earpad and headband is free from scratches, blemishes, uneven stitches, dots, or deformation common in lesser earpads.
Rugged Travel Case
Audeze’s custom-built travel case is the perfect way to protect your headphone investment, even if you drop it, spill liquids on it, bring it to a Head-Fi meet or the recording studio. As long as your headphones are in this case (and it’s closed), it’ll keep them safe using Department of Defense (DoD) level specifications.
The Audeze case features design elements tested to meet or exceed US DoD specifications for specialized shipping containers. The ultra-high-strength polypropylene copolymer shell is extremely durable and resistant to corrosion and impact damage. The case is gasketed, waterproof (DoD MIL-STD-C-4150J), airtight, submersible (IP67), and UV and corrosion and solvent resistant (DoD MIL-STD-810F). It even has an automatic ambient pressure equalization valve (DoD MIL-STD-648C & IP67) so you can open it after changing altitudes
