Audeze has announced a new reference audio headphone, the Audeze LCD-5, which they say sets a new standard for accuracy using a new driver design with Audeze's own patent-pending Parallel Uniforce voice coils and new magnet assembly. Here's the details in their own words...
LCD-5 represents a completely new design made specifically for minimal reflections, improved frequency response, and a more open yet accurate soundstage. LCD-5's impedance is 18 Ohms, sensitivity is 90dB, and it weighs just 420 grams (1/3 less than the LCD-4!). Handcrafted in California, USA, the LCD-5 has been meticulously engineered to provide unmatched audio for industry professionals and audiophiles alike.
The LCD-5 features Audeze's patented core technologies, and comes with new acoustically designed leather earpads, an improved and luxurious carbon fiber suspension headband, deep "tortoise shell" acetate rings, all-new magnesium housing, plus our latest premium audio cable made with high-purity copper, and an aluminum travel case.
Pricing and Availability:
The LCD-5 is now available on Audeze's website and through select dealers. Audeze will be demoing the new LCD-5 at CANJAM SOCAL on September 25th-26th at Irvine Marriott, and also at the Capital Audio Fest in November.
