The LCD-4 represents 40 years of advancements in planar magnetic technology and our own research and development from 2009 onward when we debuted our first product. Our new flagship headphone features game-changing technology, like its first-of-the-kind nano-scale diaphragm with Double Fluxor Magnet Arrays that nearly double the driving power. The sound is breathtaking and many listeners are shocked by its extreme you-are-there spaciousness, powerful bass, rich midrange, and an open and extended top that renders music that permeates the soul.

"If you’re looking for one of only a very select pair of headphones at the apex of personal audio, look no further than the LCD-4."
Exclusive LCD-4 planar magnetic technology
Acoustically engineered for accuracy
The LCD-4 is far and away Audeze’s most advanced headphone featuring innovative planar magnetic technology that delivers startling dynamics and incredibly open and spacious sound.
Near weightless nano-scale diaphragm
The LCD-4 features our most advanced diaphragm design; our exclusive nano-scale film actually weighs less than the air it displaces! Benefits include faster response times for better imaging, and the flattest, deepest, most accurate bass response of any headphone available.
Audeze nearly doubles the magnetic driving force
Double-Fluxor Magnet Arrays focus the magnetic flux to a previously unheard of 1.5 Tesla, nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for improved transient response and far greater resolution.
Near zero distortion
Patented Fluxor Magnet Arrays focus the magnetic flux nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for even lower distortion and greater accuracy.
Patented Fazor Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance for a more accurate waveform.
Designed, engineered and handcrafted in our California factory
The LCD-4 headphone is thoroughly engineered and meticulously hand-built using the finest, most luxurious materials combined with cutting-edge planar magnetic technology. It takes four weeks to finish the beautifully-finished 30-year-old Macassar Ebony wood rings, a dense finely-textured hardwood with a very smooth finish when polished. We closely match transducers, then match our rings by grain and color. We match earpads by leather texture and color. Choose real lambskin leather or microsuede headbands. The earpads are filled with carefully chosen acoustical foam. Pair the LCD-4 with our King Headphone Amplifier for a breathtaking experience.
Industrial Design by Audeze
You’ll be proud of how the LCD-4 sounds; it’s imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful hand-made rings manufactured at our facility. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. Our cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created a breathtakingly beautiful sounding headphone.
