    MY TAKE: The reigning champ among closed back headphones - incredible! -  Galen Carol


    All the Benefits Plus Privacy

    The closed-back LCD-XC offers all the benefits of the LCD Collection’s open designs and isolates the listener while reducing ambient noise. No sound escapes the earcups.

    Easy to Drive

    Like all Audeze headphones the LCD-XC is equipped with Fazor technology and is sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players like iPods, iPhones, and the better smartphones but an external amplifier produces better results.

    Improved Focus and Clarity

    Fast, dynamic and accurate sound using our proprietary technology that eliminates breakup modes found in other designs and improves focus and clarity.

    REVIEWS:

    “Well, let me be honest with you – I would love to have my own LCD-XC – they would immediately become my private closed back reference or maybe even the all-round reference as I liked them better than my LCD-3 (the older, non-FAZOR version I have!). I need to think about it for a while but it is quite possible that rather sooner than later you'll see LCD-XC in my reference system. I loved them also for practical reasons – as a closed design they isolate listener from environment pretty well and the environment from listening to somebody's music as well. They are probably not the best in these particular aspects but good enough. When it comes to performance these cans combine amazing musicality with quite an analytic approach to sound presentation so there is a pretty good chance they could convince both – those who only care about music and those who love to analyze sound. They offer outstanding (for cans in general, not only for closed designs) spacing and imaging, deep, taut, fast bass that creates a very coherent whole with smooth and very expressive midrange (although not as rich as offered by LCD-3) and sparkling, open, vibrant treble that offers a better insight in this part of range than LCD-3. LCD-XC are quite easy to drive so can be used even with DAPs although they really shine when driven by top quality amplifier with signal delivered by a high-end source. Manufacturer recommends output power of 1-4 W which is something that no DAP (at least none I know) can deliver and that's why to get these cans to perform at their best you need to drive them with a really good amplifier. Audeze LCD-XC are not just a piece of equipment I could live with but I would love to live with them and their high-end performance!” – Marek Dyba, High Fidelity

    "The Audeze LCD-XC has, again, redefined what's possible for me in a headphone, in terms of sonic integrity and musical engagement."
    Pros: Great sound, musically engaging, higher efficiency, stunning resolution, sounds open at times, sonically addictive
    Cons: Sorry, don't really have anything to complain about. They could be lighter and smaller! Or can they?
    - Michael Mercer, Head Fi
