Audeze LCD-3 Headphone

The Audeze LCD-3 delivers the high-resolution music experience. Its sound is always musical, spacious, ultra-realistic, with powerful bass, a rich and engaging midrange, and a top end that pulls you into the music. For the best results, Audeze recommends pairing the LCD-3 with an external headphone amplifier. The Audeze LCD-3 is an open-back headphone much like the LCD-2. The LCD-3 comprises the same premium design of its predecessor and as you can see, the outer surface features a wooden polished finish.  When Audeze started designing the LCD-3 professional reference headphones, the goal was very clear, it must be the best. No compromise when it comes to the quality of sound. It provides the highest level of audio quality, unsurpassed bass extension, exceptional treble and the best mid-range. Innovations Every Day. Audez'e aspires to deliver extraordinary products through research. The LCD-3 is packed with many innovative technologies and new approaches. The all new LOTUS diaphragm that uses a special alloy for conductive traces gives us greater control, lower distortion. Translation - Music that sounds like original studio recordings. Nothing matches the warmth and sheer luxury of natural wood. The Zebra Wood (Zebrano) with its intense color variation that ranges from light to dark complements the LCD-3s and was chosen specifically for its appearance.

Customer Reviews

Overall I must say I really like this headphone. It has a very natural and free from sibilance rendition of the human voice, the midrange otherwise is sweet, dark, and liquid. Very smooth midrange. Small groups of instruments or individual instruments are portrayed with great detail and warmth. This includes genres such as rock, folk, electronica, jazz, and small scale classical groups. Dynamics, bass response and clarity, and the ability to convey power are extremely impressive. However, with orchestral music involving large groups of instruments playing simultaneously, or with large choral groups, these headphones lose some of their focus.

They tend to sound a bit less clear when the music has many simultaneous performers. It's as if the drivers focus better when only a few things going on at once for some inexplicable reason. But no headphone can perfectly reproduce all types of music. Every headphone has strengths and weaknesses, and this is the spirit in which this review is written. So, this headphone, with small scale ensembles, including very powerful rock/electronic and also jazz or small classical groups or individual classical performers, does incredibly well assuming a good recording. A very "yummy" and detailed midrange. It is not quite as agile with large orchestral and choral music. However, it may be the best headphone in the world for rock and jazz music. Amazing power and bass, and such a sweet dark flavor to the music! An extremely pleasant listening experience overall, I must say. 22 of 26 people found the following review helpful Review by Amazon Customer.
