Audeze LCD 4 High Performance Planar Magnetic Headphones
"The LCD-4 is our new reference headphone featuring unique Double Fluxor magnet arrays for the most powerful magnetic flux density in existence."
The LCD-4, Audeze’s new reference headphone, is the result of dedicated research and development and advancements in materials science. It features our amazingly thin nano-grade diaphragms and unique Double Fluxor magnet arrays for the most powerful magnetic flux density in existence, an incredible 1.5 Tesla! It also features a new comfortable suspension-type carbon fiber and leather headband and delivers breathtaking high resolution sound, imaging and transparency, with exciting dynamics. It sounds incredibly open in the midrange and treble, and coupled with Audeze’s powerful bass removes the boundaries between artist and listener. It outperforms any other in its class like electrostatics or dynamic driver headphones.
The LCD-4 is the most advanced planar magnetic technology to date.
ENGINEERED FOR PERFORMANCE.
Implementing unique designs and patented technologies, Audeze is widely recognized as the industry leader, offering planar magnetic headphones with unparalleled performance, visual appearance, and comfort in all price categories. We accomplish this by pushing the limits of technology, materials science and engineering, always striving for sonic perfection.
FLUXOR™ MAGNETIC TECHNOLOGY
With our new, patent-pending Fluxor magnetic technology introduced in the EL-8, Audeze delivers nearly double the magnetic flux density of the highest-grade neodymium magnetic circuits available. This remarkable achievement results in reduced weight with greater efficiency to work with mobile devices.
UNIFORCE™ DIAPHRAGM TECHNOLOGY
The EL-8’s patent-pending Uniforce diaphragm employs an industry first - variable trace widths in the voice-coil to effectively capture variations in the magnetic field within the magnetic gaps by equalizing the forces of the individual traces, creating a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm surface. This results in dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
Our patent-pending Fazor technology, introduced in the LCD Collection, is also integrated into the EL-8. 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.
