The LCD-3 is a high-resolution headphone that always sounds musical, spacious, with powerful bass, an engaging midrange, and an extended top end. Its rich, vibrant sound has real scale and authority. It features a deep soundstage and reveals music in a very ambient way with exciting transparency and detail. The LCD-3’s natural timbre, especially through the midrange, has been called a thing of beauty. You’ll find yourself emotionally connected to the artist and music. Pair it with a high-quality headphone or integrated amplifier for best results. Its impedance is 110 ohms.

About Audeze

Audeze started in 2008 in a garage (of course!) when its founders came across a revolutionary flexible circuit material developed for NASA. Realizing this could be a great advance in planar magnetic technology, they first started to make pro audio PA speakers, but dropped this project and started making headphones – the LCD-1.

Taking this first headphone to the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, it was a tremendous hit, and that success launched the company. Hanging on that garage wall was the 2001 Space Odyssey poster, and that inspired the company’s name. The founders wanted a name that had something to do with a “journey through audio,” so Odyssey would be perfect, and that’s how the name Audeze (pronounced “odyssey”) was born.

Audeze’s Planar Magnetic Technology

Acoustically engineered for accuracy

Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers clear and accurate sound that reveals everything on the recording.

Diaphragms thinner than a human hair

We use space-age materials in an ultra thin diaphragm four times larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.

Near zero distortion

Double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion.

Internal waveguide

Patented Fazor Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonances for a more accurate waveform.
