”I recommend the Audeze LCD-5 without reservation. Stunning and extraordinary!”’Positive Feedback’.

The best made better

Taking the impressive LCD-4 as their benchmark, the Audeze LCD-5 improves upon the entire design, bringing not only a new standard in sound quality, but a noticeable reduction in weight, too.

New drivers for unparalleled accuracy
Using revised Fluxor magnets and updated Fazor waveguides, along with Parallel Uniforce voice coils these headphones are amongst the very best sounding you can buy. The planar magnet design produces incredible sonic accuracy, producing a sound that’s studio fresh. The LCD-5’s manage to squeeze out an even wider frequency response, for the most dynamic sound yet.

Redesigned mesh and earpads deliver improved vocals
Already class-leaders in precise staging, the LCD-5 headphones sound even clearer. New, acoustically transparent mesh and sculpted earpads minimise reflections and resonance. This improves fine detail, such as vocal realism, as well as detailing musicians in their own sense of space. The upshot of all this is headphones that deliver the purest, most natural sound that you can imagine.

Supplied with high purity, balanced cable
Lavishing such attention on headphone engineering would be wasted if the LCD-5s came with an ordinary cable. Fortunately, they don’t. The specially tuned, high-purity copper cable provides a low capacitance and low resistance path – meaning even the most delicate signals get through. It comes as standard with an XLR terminated, balanced connection that’s the perfect match for most quality headphone amps. A 6.35mm adaptor is also included.

Lightweight materials reduce weight by a third
Audeze have made a great effort in reducing weight, making these headphones more comfortable to wear for longer sessions. At 420 grammes, they’re an impressive one third the weight of the LCD-4s (690 grammes). Audeze have achieved this through the careful use of lightweight materials, such as magnesium, aluminium and acetate.

Ultimate luxury construction
As well as the superb sound, it's easy to see where your money goes with these headphones. Supple leather ear pads remain comfortable for hours on end and feel luxurious next to your skin. The carbon fibre backed headband is light, strong and looks great. Highly polished ear caps and metal grilles give these headphones a true premium style.

Supplied with robust, aluminium travel case
To protect your investment, these premium headphones come supplied with an aluminium travel case. The light yet rigid case features tailored foam inserts, making sure your precious headphones sit snugly. The case also features a separate compartment for the cable, helping to reduce the chance of cable damage when packing and unpacking the headphones.

Hear your music at its very best, with the Audeze LCD-5.
