The Audeze LCD-3 is a time machine that puts you in the room with your favorite artists and musicians. It’s luxuriously spacious, with powerful bass, a rich and engaging midrange, and a top-end that draws you into the music. Its rich, vibrant sound has scale and authority derived from a deep, ambient soundstage with exciting detail and dynamics. The LCD-3 was said to be the best in the world and its natural timbre, especially through the midrange, was described as a thing of beauty.
Exclusive LCD-3 planar magnetic technology
Acoustically engineered for accuracy
Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers an astonishingly lifelike sound.
Diaphragms thinner than a human hair
We use space-age materials to fabricate an ultra thin diaphragm four times larger than typical headphones delivering fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
Near zero distortion
Double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion.
Nearly double the magnetic driving force
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 producing a more accurate waveform.
Designed, engineered and handcrafted in the USA
The LCD-3 is thoroughly engineered for long-term comfort and spacious, realistic sound. We closely match our planar transducers, and match our beautiful factory-made wood rings by grain and color. We use tropical West African Zebrano hardwood — known as Zebra wood — not listed in the CITES Appendices. We also match the earpads by leather texture and color. You can choose lambskin leather or Microsuede headbands and earcups that are filled with carefully selected foam for best sound and comfort during long listening sessions. Pair the LCD-3 with a quality headphone amplifier or integrated amp for best sound.
Industrial design by Audeze
You’ll be proud of how the LCD-3 looks and sounds. It’s imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful hand-made rings. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. Our cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created an astonishingly beautiful sounding headphone.
“Greatness is apparent straight from the off. The LCD-3 delivers a scale and authority of sound we didn’t think headphones could ever manage. A rich, vibrant sound.”

“An object lesson in how good headphone bass can be when the response is flat to below audibility and the distortion vanishingly small.”
Keith Howard, Hi-Fi News
“The LCD-3’s natural timbre, especially throughout the midrange, was a thing of beauty and one that’s hard to go without once experienced.”
Andrew Robinson, Home Theater Review
“In design, build, and performance, they’re the epitome of high-end.”
