Audeze LCD-5 new Flagship open back, planar magnetic headphone.
They are built and on the way! Shipping Tues 26th.
Audeze redesigned their flagship headphone to provide better performance and improved comfort. LCD-5 features new driver tech from Audeze that allow it to be faster, provide higher resolution and extend the frequency response even further. The impedance was kept low in the design of the drivers, so the LCD-5 just need a quality amp that can provide ample current. The redesigned ear pads are sculpted to improve comfort and help open and extend the soundstage.
Audeze worked to reduce the weight in all aspects of the new design. The headband is carbon fiber, the earcups are made from light and strong acetate and magnesium was used on other parts. The weight reduction is near 1/3 compared to the previous LCD-4, making it easy to wear for hours at a time.
LCD-5 include a premium braided cable, that resists noise from motion and should prove durable. An aluminum travel case is also included.
