The Best in the World
Our flagship headphone has literally been called the best in the world. At the pinnacle of our LCD Collection, the LCD-3 delivers the highest resolution music experience Audeze offers. The LCD-3 must be driven by an external headphone amplifier or integrated amp.
Strongest Driving Force
The LCD-3 has the longest voice coil and the strongest diaphragm driving force yielding the fastest transient response of all the LCD Collection.
Audeze’s patent-pending Fazor elements improve clarity, focus and the already spectacular holographic imaging. Two Fazor elements are placed just outside the two magnet structures that surround the diaphragm. They guide and manage the flow of sound around the magnets and are standard on all LCD headphones.
- Loads the diaphragm with a symmetrical acoustic load
- Improves acoustic impedance-matching that extends high frequency response and increases efficiency
- Acoustically transparent so sound waves generated by the surface of the moving diaphragm pass through the magnetic structure undegraded
- Improved phase response at high frequencies
- Eliminates edge-diffraction of sound waves around magnetic structures
- Sound waves generated by our large planar magnetic diaphragms pass through magnetic structures without disturbance preserving recorded detail
- Phase distortion further reduced at high frequencies
- Improved Impulse response
- Better acoustic matching, symmetrical loading and minimized edge diffraction result in cleaner, more detailed and transparent output
- Impulse response measurements with Fazors clearly show our planar element settles faster with less ringing
