High-performance planar magnetic headphone
The Best in the World? We think so.
What Hi-Fi magazine for instance, who are not known for giving five star awards to premium products, gave the LCD-3 headphones their highest 5 Star award... And we agree with their verdict, these are superb headphones.
The Audeze LCD-3 is the Company's flagship headphone. It has been called 'the best in the world', by reviewers and professional headphone users alike. At the pinnacle of the 'LCD' headphone range, the LCD-3 delivers the highest resolution music experience Audeze offers.
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 headphone range. Its sister product, the LCD-X is more dynamic (and efficient) but lacks the last degree of inner detail and certainly does not go that extra last quarter octave in the bass department!
Patent-pending Fazor elements guide and manage the flow of sound in the LCD-3 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 amplifier or integrated amp - it is not one for use with mobile phones (but is compatible with some of the dedicated DAPs, like the Astell&Kern AK240, if you do not want ear-splitting sound levels)
All Audeze products are designed and manufactured in the USA.

Sound Fidelity say:
“The Audeze LCD-3 headphones are simply magnificent in our opinion. The LCD-3 headphones have lots going for them - supreme transparency and uncoloured detail, bass depth and sonority and mids and highs that integrate so well with the bass. They come across as a tad 'darker' in presentation of the music than the LCD-X headphones option, which are more efficient and best suited to low output headphone amplifiers, mobile phones and DAP's.
There is no right or wrong here - but if you use a headphone amplifier and are wanting the 'best' home hi-fi headphones at anything close to a real world budget, then the LCD-3's are a must! For mobile music players and integrated headphone amp. outputs, we would recommend the LCD-X option on balance. Both are supremely musical and almost identical in sound quality and once experienced, you will never want to return to conventional headphones again!”
