    Performance Meets Practicality

    It’s rare to find the pleasures of comfort, convenience, and quality sound in one product. Typically, headphones sacrifice at least one for the sake of the others. The LCD-1 manages all three. Featuring Audeze’s powerful, lightweight Fazor magnets in an open-back, light-weight design, the LCD-1 delivers audiophile sound in an ultra-portable package.

    Hand-Crafted Comfort 

    Fully assembled in Audeze’s Orange County factory, the LCD-1 bears the fruit of hand-crafted attention in every stitch. Its deep memory foam earpads are wrapped in genuine lambskin leather for all-day comfort. The headband, while not too tight, provides enough clamping force to keep the headphones snugly on your head. And because these are open-back headphones, they dissipate enough heat to keep your ears from getting toasty. 

    Fazor Phase Management 

    While planar magnetic headphones offer a lot of advantages over dynamic drivers, they also present their own problems. Diffraction of sound off the magnets can cause different frequencies to arrive at different times, resulting in changes of phase. And when sound waves created by multiple magnets collide, wave interference occurs (that’s a bad thing). 

    Audeze has attempted to solve these problems with a proprietary technology called Fazor Phase Management. Fazors are triangular elements that cap each magnet. They act as guides for the sound, maneuvering waves from the drivers and preventing them from interfering with each other. The result is cleaner sound, greater resolution, and better imaging. 

    Fluxor Magnet Array 

    The Fluxor Magnetic Array is Audeze’s proprietary magnetic structure. It’s both lighter and more powerful than the traditional magnet array found in other planar magnetic headphones, resulting in an overall lighter build and increased control over the diaphragm. It’s capable of rendering frequencies from 10 - 50,000Hz with pinpoint accuracy.
