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.
