Headphones

 

 

In recent years Headphones have gone from being the things you pulled out to listen to Led Zeplin at earsplitting levels in the middle of the night to

the preferred form of musical  enjoyment by many Generation Xers and  by extension to their Parents as well as other Baby boomers and 80's babies.

Certainly the birth of personal portable music systems is what initiated this development ,but it is the Genius of Companies Like AUDEZE and Grado in creating Headsets which

can create the illusion of live music by strapping  a very specialized  transducer on either side of your head which has driven this passtime as far as it has gone.

Perhaps the most sought afterof all of these super headphones are thos produced by AUDEZE .

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. They  accomplish this by pushing the limits of technology, materials science and engineering, always striving for sonic perfection from the affordable to the uncompromising.

 
  

EL-8 Open-Back NEW!

The world’s most advanced planar magnetic headphone. Featuring patent-pending Fluxor™, Uniforce™ technology.

 

The EL-8 is flexible, portable, lightweight and loaded with new technology for extreme performance.

It works beautifully with most portable players and phones. Designed by BMWDesignWorks USA and available in open and closed-back models, they're built with superb craftsmanship, wood veneer accents, and enormous attention to detail. The EL-8 is possessed of the world's most advanced planar magnetic technology with sound quality unheard of in this or any other price category.

 

 

 

 

LCD-3

State-of-the-Art
Planar Magnetic Headphone

 

Audeze’s flagship headphone has literally been called the best in the world. The LCD-3 has the longest voice coil and the strongest diaphragm driving force that yields the fastest transient response of all the LCD designs. At the pinnacle of our LCD Collection, the LCD-3 delivers the highest resolution music experience we offer. Patent-pending Fazor elements guide and manage the flow of sound in the headphone for improved clarity and focus, greater frequency extension top and bottom, and remarkable 3D holographic imaging. The LCD-3 must be driven by an external headphone amp or integrated amplifier.

 
 

 

 
 
 

LCD-X

Reference-level
Planar Magnetic Headphone

 

The LCD-X is a very efficient headphone that extracts the maximum power out of low-powered amplifiers and portable devices. It’s the most neutral of the LCD Collection and favored by recording engineers and musicians alike for its fast, dynamic and accurate playback. Audeze's proprietary technology eliminates the breakup modes found in other designs improving focus and clarity. Patent-pending Fazor elements guide and manage the flow of sound for improved frequency extension and a more enveloping soundstage. The X and XC are sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and the better smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results..

 

LCD-2

The Original High Performance
Planar Magnetic Headphone

 

The LCD-2 is our original game-changing headphone, the design that catapulted Audeze into the spotlight. It’s the most forgiving of bad recordings and presents a beautiful sound with the same powerful bass as all Audeze headphones, a tonally-rich midrange and a simply beautiful treble region. The addition of our patent-pending Fazor technology made the LCD-2 sound more dynamic and focused top to bottom. It takes a real effort not to enjoy music on these headphones. The LCD-2 must be driven by an external headphone amp or integrated amp.
