Audeze was established in 2008 when founders Thiagasamudram and Rosson discovered a use for flexible circuit materials designed by NASA in their new prototype headphones. They quickly realized the potential of this material for headphone development and welcomed another team member with 30+ years’ experience in designing planar drivers to create the first LCD-1 headphone.
Audeze then developed the legendary LCD-2 and LCD-3 headphones, and the higher-efficiency LCD-X and XC models. Fortunately, they recently made the planar magnetic technology accessible to a wider audience with the EL-8, SINE and iSINE series headphones.
Audeze headphones employ cutting-edge planar magnetic headphone technology with extremely thin-film driver materials and powerful custom magnets for more accurate, high-quality audiophile sound. Their lightweight diaphragms are faster and more responsive than heavier moving-coil or dome drivers. This technology enables you to connect with your favorite artists as if you were right there.
The Audeze LCD Collection is recognized as the world's best audiophile headphones and used by audio engineers and music professionals globally.
