Audeze LCD-1 is an open back planar magnetic headphone, over the ear fit. Audeze's lightest weight headphone and an easy to drive design, with a folding headband and carry case. Its in stock now and it has excellent clarity and a very even, balanced tuning with plenty of detail in the vocal and treble, without sibilance.
LCD-1 sounds excellent from a Fiio M11 portable player (Dec 3 - even better out of the M11 pro - absolutely rocks!) and with the Dragonfly Red & Cobalt. It is very light weight, not clampy at all and the comfort is 9/10.
Sounds great with a phone + Dragonfly Red or Cobalt (the Black is not a great match, go Red or Cobalt)
Headfonics.com: LCD-1 sounds fantastic. It is certainly miles better than the original EL8. This is a very mature, coherent and tonally natural sound. Especially that treble performance.
