Audeze LCD-1 Review


Affordable for planar magnetic headphones. ; Accurate sound signature ideal for reference listening. ; Comfortable. ; Removable cable.

Cable lacks inline remote or mic. ; Headphones bleed audio. ; Not for those seeking big bass.

The Audeze LCD-1 planar magnetic headphones deliver a nearly transparent sound signature that will appeal to audio purists or studio professionals checking mixes.

Audeze LCD-1 review


The Audeze LCD-1 gets you premium, well-balanced sound at a third of what most high-end headphones cost.

Accurate and neutral sound ; Powerful drivers ; Much more affordable than other planar-magnetic models ; Lightweight and portable ; Can be plugged into most devices

No onboard controls ; Can’t use for calls or voice assistance ; Zero isolation and lots of leakage

Pick up the Audeze LCD-1 if you seek audiophile headphones at an attainable price point.

Detailed, spacious sound ; A flat response that's perfect for audio editing ; Comfortable and portable

Audeze LCD-1 review


A detailed and spacious-sounding pair of headphones

Loads of detail ; Spacious soundstage ; Easy listen

Dynamics not expressive ; Lack punch

You’ll struggle to find a pair of headphones more detailed or spacious than the Audeze LCD-1s for the money, but they just lack a little energy

Review: Audeze LCD-1 open back headphones


Audeze is one of those brands you have to go looking for. With its higher-end headphones pushing $8,000, it's clearly serious about the head gear

Delightful sound;Handles high power;Carry case included

Open back allows sound to leak in and out
