Audeze LCD-5


Transparency, resolution and speed at only 420g.

The LCD-5 sets a new standard for accuracy. Its drivers are engineered with our award-winning Fluxor magnets and updated Fazor waveguides along with our new Patent-pending Parallel Uniforce™ voice coils, which employ varying width parallel traces to keep the impedance low and provide increased voltage headroom by altering the current density within each trace.

The uniform force created by this optimisation lowers distortion and provides better control over diaphragm movement. This results in improved sonic resolution.

Our Latest Flagship, 1/3 Less Weight!

For the past decade, Audeze’s LCD series has set the standard for planar magnetic headphone performance.

Starting with the LCD-2 that ushered in a new era of planar technology in 2009, we then introduced the LCD-3 in 2011 and LCD-4 in 2015.

With the LCD-5, everything has been improved – drivers, ear pads, frame design - to set a new standard for performance and comfort.

Clarity and Imaging

We’ve optimised every aspect of the LCD-5’s acoustic chamber to achieve pinpoint imaging and an extremely clean and clear soundstage.

The new sculpted ear pads and acoustically transparent mesh are designed to minimise reflections and resonance, while the Parallel Uniforce™ voice coil allows increased space between magnets for improved frequency response and a more open soundstage.

LCD-5 also features newly designed low-profile Fazor waveguides to further reduce diffractions and interactions with the ear.

Elegant Comfortable Design

Weighing in at only 420 grams, the LCD-5 offers hours of listening pleasure.

Every part has been re-engineered, using materials such as Magnesium, Aluminium and Acetate which offer light weight and high rigidity. When you put on a pair of LCD-5s, your head and ears are cradled in materials of the finest quality.

Supple premium leather and Carbon-fibre pull all the elements together into a package of the finest craftsmanship, which we hand-assemble in our California workshop.

Sculpted Ear pads

Our new sculpted, internally sloped ear pad architecture reduces unwanted resonances and interior reflections.

The ergonomic design cradles your cranium, and helps naturally place the headphone in the optimal listening position.

The pads have less contact surface area than standard designs to reduce fatigue while providing a superior seal for all shapes and sizes.


Ultra High Purity Adaptable Balanced Cable

The LCD-5 cable is specially tuned with directional OCC high-purity Copper strands that provide a low capacitance and low resistance path for the signal to travel from your amp to the drivers, maintaining unsurpassed clarity and precision.

It comes standard with an XLR terminated cable for a balanced system or use it with the single ended adapter.
