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.
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.
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.
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.

Please note that professional reviews for headphones are much more varied than traditional Hi-Fi. With Bookshelf Speakers and the likes, it's quite often to get 5 stars straight across the board. With Headphones, it's very rare that everyone agrees on the quality of the product, therefore straight 5 star reviews are very rare. Critically acclaimed headphones will generally average around 4 stars regardless of performance, so don't be put off by this.
That being said, we always prefer to show each review where possible, even if the review isn't so flattering. It is after all a very subjective opinion as everyone has different hearing abilities and preferred styles. Think of it like wine, you can buy a £100 bottle, but prefer a £6. At the end of the day it's down to taste and taste alone.
Let us know if you find any good professional reviews and we will add them to the site!
The LCD-4 is known to range from dark to warm, depending on the year's revision. The variance of the LCD-4 is most obvious in the treble region as some headphones may have extreme elevation in some frequencies compared to identical models. Though overall, the LCD-4 does have a signature soundstage that gives its iconic status.Read More
In so many ways, the Audeze LCD-4 are the finest headphones that money can buy. Only a slightly recessed upper mid-range lets them down.
