Audeze LCD2 Classic review: these cans will turn you into an audiophile


These headphones live up to their name

Can’t get better bass for the price ; Comfortable and well-built ; Expansive soundstage

Huge ; No protective case ; Not much noise isolation

What the LCD2 Classics achieve is a bridging of the traditional gap between audiophiles and casual music listeners. I have sampled the extravagant extremes of personal audio, such as Focal’s $4,000 Utopias, and there’s nothing I’m missing when stepping...

Audeze LCD 2 Classic HEADPHONES


The Audeze LCD 2 Classic are well-built and great-sounding planar magnetic critical listening headphones. They have a high-end and sturdy open-back design, they're comfortable despite being one of the heaviest headphones we've tested and they deliver a...

Comfortable. ; Durable design. ; Open sound quality.

Poor isolation by design. ; Bulky and heavy headphones.

Audeze LCD2 – One of the best?


I've always been a fan of orthos ever since I had my Hifiman HE-5LE. It was almost the perfect headphones for me but I just can't seem to get over the sibilance issue. And I thought Hifiman was able solve that as soon as the 2nd generation Hifiman came...

Audez'e LCD-2 Impressions


I really won't call this a full review, mostly due to the limited time I had with the headphone. Normally I get to keep a headphone for a minimum of 1-2 weeks for a full

Review: Audeze LCD-2 headphones


There are people out there who love big speakers, and who spend a fortune on them, but if you need to cut the sound out or just want to listen to a recording intimately, a pair of $1300 headphones might be just what you need to look for.

Breathtaking sound, close to being there and listening; Practically perfect in audio quality and beautifully clear; So balanced; Well made; Very, very comfortable;

Really needs an amp to drive them; They look very strange; The LCD2 headphones are massive, and the sheer size may put some people off; Proprietary cable; Very, very, very expensive;

A Warm Hug of a Headphone


I would like to thank the guys over at Audio Sanctuary in New Malden, London, for lending me their display unit of the Audeze LCD-2 (2016 Edition) for a review. Check them out at and do visit their brick-and-mortar...

Rich and warm tone, full-bodied low end, good detail, forgiving of many genres and poor mastering, stellar all-rounder in its pricerange

Weight distribution, tight clamp, earpads held in place with adhesive (tape or glue), soundstage a bit lacking

A Dark Jewel of Audio Perfection - A Review of the Audeze LCD-2.2 Fazor


-::The Review::- That dread sickness returned to my mind and I found myself looking for an upgrade to the Sennheiser HD600. I didn't quite know what to expect. I mean, the HD600 is a king slayer, so what would “better” sound like? Research, led by a...

Sounds as good as it looks. Finest grade materials. Sturdy construction.

Heavy cans. Heavy cable.

The bold and beautiful. Solid bass, proper transient articulation and extension throughout the entire range.


Liquid organic audio - the LCD2 Been meaning to get around to a full review of these for a while. I have attached some of my early impressions from a comparison thread in which I was able to isolate specific frequency ranges and found the LCD2s...

Linear well-extend bass. Performs well in all ranges. A good upgrade for HD650 fans looking for more extended bass.

Comfort. A bit rolled off. A downgrade for an HD650 fan in terms of comfort and weight.

Audeze LCD-2.2 Fazor Review


This review would be from a NOOB point of view. I'm doing this review because its a review I wish I had when I was 'outside looking in' at all these people on the forums talk about the sonic nirvana they achieved from all their hifi audio equipment. So...

detail, 3D sound, sense of realism

tight vise grip on my head, you'll hear all the good and the BAD in recordings but that's not LCD-2's fault
