Audeze Replacement Headband

The daily use of LCD headphones over the years lends itself to the occasional need for headband replacement. As such, Audeze offers hand-crafted leather and non-leather headband replacements for our LCD line of planar magnetic headphones.

Precision Craftsmanship

We spent time carefully designing and selecting materials for the assembly of our headband. At its core the headband is constructed with heat-treated spring steel that is powder coated to prevent corrosion. This base is then padded with foam and (as outlined in our earpad replacement) wrapped in your choice of either lambskin leather or leather-free microsuede to create the perfect, comfortable fit.

Lambskin Leather

We worked with our leather supplier for three years to find the perfect material for our headbands. We 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 our headphones.  Both leathers are imported from a remote region in Italy.

Microsuede (Leather Free)

A number of you have told us you’d like an alternative to our leather products and we’ve responded by offering a leather-free microsuede (faux suede) option.  The same care and diligence was applied to finding the perfect non-leather material fit for our headphones.

Cushioning

To ensure your headphones are comfortable even during long listening sessions we 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.

Inspected by Hand

Our material experts carefully inspect each piece by hand so they can examine each and every detail. This ensures every headband is free from scratches, blemishes, uneven stitches, dots, or deformation common in lesser earpads.

Ingredients

Some leather conditioners use inexpensive and occasionally toxic chemicals to cut costs.

At Audeze we build the very best headphones so our leather conditioner must meet the same stringent protocols.

Lanolin is a highly effective emollient preventing leather from drying by forming a protective film. It derives from sheep’s wool that’s refined and purified.

Aloe vera, one of nature’s best moisturizers, has been used for almost 2,000 years. Together with coconut oil it helps repair leather, preserve its texture, and nourish leather fibers for longer life and a softer feel.

Beeswax is an excellent restorative, an expensive byproduct of honey production. Bees travel an estimated 150,000 miles to eat enough honey to secrete just one pound of wax. Amazingly, 100 pounds of honey produce only 1 to 2 pounds of beeswax.

Carnauba wax is sourced from one place in the world, the leaves of a palm tree growing in northeastern Brazil. After Carnauba palm leaves are collected and dried workers beat them to loosen the wax then refine it into the finished product.
