Audeze LCD-MX4

The LCD-MX4 represents the fusion of our Flagship and Reference lines. Featuring our iconic X driver together with our patented Double Fluxor magnet array and Uniforce voice coil technology, the LCD-MX4 brings superior detail and clarity to our most neutral and translatable driver design. Whether it’s that sparkle in the vocals or that cut in the transients, the MX4 will reveal those critical details necessary for you to perfect your mix.

 

Taking the Environment out of the Equation

The LCD-XC shares the same drivers and basic construction as the LCD-X, lending it a similar level of detail and transparency. Its closed-back design adds isolation, which lets you to focus as intesely as you need without distraction. When used with Audeze Reveal+ to create an AI-generated map of your own hearing, the LCD-XC puts you inside renowned studios, letting you mix consistently and efficiently from anywhere, regardless of background noise.

 

Accuracy, Transparency, and Efficiency

LCD-XC leverages patented Audeze technologies, including Ultra-Thin Uniforce™ diaphragms, Fazor waveguides, and powerful neodymium magnets to deliver extremely accurate and detailed sound. The sophisticated planar magnetic drivers achieve a high efficiency with low impedance, such that LCD-XC can deliver great sound from nearly any device with a headphone output. Together, these innovations enable audio professionals to efficiently get their mix done right in a variety of settings.

Designed for Comfort

Audeze has improved the LCD-XC over the years, lowering the weight and increasing comfort. It features a suspension headband for even weight distribution, and highly-cushioned premium earpads for support. The neutral tuning and low distortion prevent listening fatigue, so those late-night sessions never have to end.
