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.
