Audio46's Opinion

Audeze stays true to its talents with the LCD-2 Classic. The bass is punchy yet highly realistic, remaining faithful to the recording's bass elements while delivering them with power and impact. And while that unmistakable Audeze warmth is ever-present, the low-end showcases great texture and a clean sense of separation from the midrange. (Unlike some headphones that suffer from congestion or muddiness in this region, the LCD-2 Classic maintains excellent separation clean layering.) While the mids are generally evenly balanced, vocals have a slightly forward presence. In the treble region, the LCD-2 Classic leans towards a smooth presentation while retaining solid extension. And overall, these cans capture all the available power and dynamics of the whatever track you play, providing an incredibly engaging and impactful listening experience. So, if you're looking for a bold and distinctly energetic headphone, here it is.

The Warm Embrace of Classic Audeze

LCD-2 made Audeze a household name among audiophiles when it launched to rave reviews back in 2009. Now, the relaxed, full, spacious sound that made it a hit is more afforable than ever with our LCD-2 Classic. Still handbuilt in our Southern California workshop, this classic is a headphone worth waiting for.

  • Our most affordable LCD-series headphone - a warm and energetic musical experience!
  • Planar drivers featuring offset magnetic array for increased airflow and greater spatial information.
  • Built for long-term comfort with lower weight and ventilated suspension headband

Full-Bodied Live Sound

When you first listen to LCD-2 Classic you are struck by the realism of the sound, the combination of effortless weight, clarity, and depth it articulates. The realism washes over you, enveloping you in your favorite music without a care to the outside world.  

Patented Audeze Innovation

LCD-2 Classic harkens back to the first headphones Audeze sold, with a unique offset magnet array that gives the sound a broad, deep sense of space. The driver tuning lends a tube-like character to the forgiving, yet clear sound signature.
