LCD-2 Classic - Leather-Free

We’ve taken our current generation LCD-2 drivers and removed the Fazor elements, aligning the sound of the LCD-2 Classic with that of the original LCD-2 launched in 2008. The result is a warm and energetic musical experience that heralds back to the early days of Audeze without sacrificing the sound or performance improvements we’ve made over the past decade.

Whether you’re an old fan of the original LCD-2 or a brand new Audeze customer looking for an affordable introduction to our LCD line, the LCD-2 Classic is a great option for you!

"Editor’s Choice award. It’s one of the best models that Audeze have ever made...for under a grand, nothing sounds as good as these." logo

"The clarity is stellar on the Audeze Classic. It belies its price point and its distortion is favorably low throughout the spectrum."

A Tradition of Excellence

The lineage of the LCD Origins series can be traced back to the original LCD-2. Much has changed over the years, but these headphones still retain the iconic warmth and vibrant presentation that have captivated listeners for more than a decade.
