Since its release in 2009, our original LCD-2 headphone has been a favorite among passionate listeners everywhere. Audeze proudly presents a new take on our classic LCD-2 design. The LCD-2 Classic headphone comes with a new suspension headband, special glass-infused nylon rings, and features that wonderful, slightly warmer sound signature than the original 70 ohm LCD-2 pre-Fazor drivers. About Audeze Audeze started in 2008 in a garage (of course!) when its founders came across a revolutionary flexible circuit material developed for NASA. Realizing this could be a great advance in planar magnetic technology, they first started to make pro audio PA speakers, but dropped this project and started making headphones - the LCD-1. Taking this first headphone to the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, it was a tremendous hit, and that success launched the company. Hanging on that garage wall was the 2001 Space Odyssey poster, and that inspired the company's name. The founders wanted a name that had something to do with a "journey through audio," so Odyssey would be perfect, and that's how the name Audeze (pronounced "odyssey") was born. Planar drawing: Acoustically engineered for accuracy Audeze's innovative planar magnetic technology delivers clear and accurate sound that reveals everything on the recording. Diaphragms thinner than a human hair We use space-age materials in an ultra thin diaphragm four times larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging. Near zero distortion Double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion. Additional features: Everyone who took the Audeze LCD-2 phones for a test drive arrived at the same conclusion - they are the most enjoyable headphones I've ever experienced. - Jeff Dorgay, TONE AUDIO
