The beautifully handcrafted LCD-2, the planar magnetic headphone that put Audeze on the high-end map, delivers audiophile quality, low-distortion sound that articulates the power and nuance of your favorite music. The LCD-2 is the most forgiving of poor recordings in the LCD Collection with a beautiful, musically rich presentation that communicates the warmth, power and glory of music.
"In a number of ways it was the best headphone I'd ever measured."...from Inner Fidelity
There are two models of the LCD-2, the Fazor model and the Non-Fazor. The Fazor improves the definition and clarity, while the original Non-Fazor model is more full-bodied, but slightly less defined. This video does an excellent job of highlighting the differences and tradeoffs.

"The LCD-2 has tremendous dynamic punch, bass power and stellar resolution. The Fazor model is more detailed and spacious than the original. I really like the more open sound, but in the end these comparisons between old and new models just renewed my appreciation for the Audeze sound."

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.
Note: Jaguar is only able to ship Audeze products to addresses inside the US.
Note: The tensioned set screws in the sides of the headband's adjustment blocks are pre-set and glued in our factory, and are not adjustable. Do not attempt to adjust these screws, as damage may result that is not covered by warranty.
