Audeze LCD2C Classic is an open-back, over ear planar magnetic headphone. It removes the travel case from the LCD2, swaps bamboo housing and leather pads for synthetics and is tuned to have a fuller bass - a warmer sound that many people have loved about Audeze LCD2 headphones since they launched. ** These are the latest 2021 production and include a carry case.
The warmth is combined with the lifelike dynamics, clarity and realistic musical power that people love and expect from Audeze LCD headphones. A new braided cable with 6.5mm plug is included - the braided cable is a solid upgrade from previous LCD cables, being tougher & easier to place/live with. A 3.5mm adaptor is included.
The headband is a new suspension type and while the weight is till there, comfort is very good. At 70 ohms and a high sensitivity of 101dB, LCD2C Classics are easier to power than LCD2's of old - you should get great results with a wide range of headphone amps and dacs.

headfonia.com: I think Audeze did the right thing with creating the classic the way they did it. A great looking, more comfortable headphone, which is a very affordable and to top it off with a really great sound quality. In this price range the LCD2 classic certainly is recommended if you want a balanced, precise and clean sound from a more neutrally tuned headphone. It’s very easy to like.
