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.
"I’ve had a lot of reference-grade headphones here over the years, but none exceeds what I’ve experienced with the LCD-4s.....This is top o' the heap performance, amigos!"
Exclusive LCD-4 planar magnetic technology
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.
Designed, engineered and handcrafted in our California factory
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. The new LCD steel & leather suspension headband provides comfort for hours of listening pleasure. The earpads are filled with carefully chosen acoustical foam. Pair the LCD-4 with our King Headphone Amplifier for a breathtaking experience.
Industrial Design by Audeze
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.

To avoid damage to your headphones and/or hearing, ensure the volume on your player is turned down before connecting your headphones. After placing headphones on your head, gradually turn up the volume until you reach a comfortable listening level. Exposure to excessive sound levels can cause gradual hearing loss and damage your headphones.
Excessive power levels can damage your headphones. Be sure to stay within the rated power levels of 5W RMS / 15W PEAK to minimize the risk of damage, which is not covered under warranty.
