Headphones Made in USA: Last week, I wrote a review on several headphones, more specifically, Audeze Headphones, like the Audeze EL-8 Open-Back Headphone. They are quality earphones, and luckily they are manufactured in the United States. But, I wanted to find out if there were any other headphones or earbuds made in the U.S.A. These are the results of my research for headphones made in the U.S.A.
Headphones Made in the USA by Audeze
- Audeze LCD-3 Headphone
Our flagship headphone has been called the best in the world. At the pinnacle of our LCD Collection, the LCD-3 delivers the highest resolution music experience of all our headphones. 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.
- Audeze LCD-4 Headphone
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.
- Audeze LCD-XC Headphone
The closed-back LCD-XC was created based on our core customers’ feedback. It delivers all the benefits of the LCD-X while isolating the listener and reducing ambient noise for a private listening experience, a significant achievement due to the inherent challenges of enclosing our planar transducers. The LCD-XC is the finest closed-back planar available, sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and mobile devices, but an external amplifier produces better sonic results.
- Audeze LCD-2 Headphone
The LCD-2 is the legendary headphone that made Audeze an industry leader. Continuous evolution and the addition of Fazor technology have enhanced its transparency and overall performance. Known for their tight, extended bass response, smooth, inviting midrange, and warm high frequencies, the LCD-2 headphones offer a listening experience that makes believers out of even casual music listeners. For the best performance, The LCD-2 requires an external headphone amplifier.
- Audeze LCD-X Headphone
The LCD-X is an extremely efficient headphone that extracts the maximum power out of low-powered amplifiers and portable devices. It’s also the most neutral of all the LCD Collection, explaining its popularity with audiophiles, recording engineers and musicians alike, for its clarity and fast, accurate dynamics. The X is sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results.
- Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back Headphone
The closed-back EL-8 offers all the benefits of the open-back EL-8 — flexible, lightweight and loaded with new technology — while isolating the listener and reducing ambient noise as no sound escapes the earcups. The EL-8 closed-back is also sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and smartphones, but an external amplifier produces better results. They’re built with superb craftsmanship, wood veneer accents and enormous attention to detail.
- Audeze EL-8 Open-Back Headphone
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 features the world’s most advanced planar magnetic technology with sound quality unheard of in this or any other price category. The EL-8 is one of the best headphones made in the USA.

- Grado SR60E
The Grado SR60e is your entry to the world of full spectrum audio. You’ll actually hear notes you never knew were there.

- Grado SR80I
What does the i stand for in the SR80i from Grado? Improved, that’s what! Built on the same features as the Grado SR60i, but SR80i utilizes a 4 conductor connecting cable and the diaphragms are put through a special ‘de-stressing’ process in order to enhance inner detail, the result of which gives a more open stage. The new SR80i has an upgraded driver design, and they have enlarged and improved the mass distribution in the plastic housing.
