Audeze say that their new headphones are the ‘easy-to-drive version of the LCD-4’. They have a new look and greater efficiency, engineered with a new magnesium housing to produce a more light-weight headphone, but Audeze say that the LCD-4z maintains the sound signature of LCD-4.

Audeze go on to explain further: “We have taken the award-winning design of our top-of-the-line LCD-4 and engineered it with a special 15 ohm voice-coil making it significantly easier to drive than the original LCD-4. This model does not replace the original 200 ohm LCD-4, but offers a perfect solution for users seeking more head room”.

“The LCD-4z features a dark aesthetic with gold accents. The magnesium rings of the LCD-4z are designed to be strong, lightweight, and non-resonant. The LCD-4z features our most advanced diaphragm design; our exclusive nano-scale film actually weighs less than the air it displaces! Benefits include faster response for better transient/impulse response, imaging, and the flattest, deepest, most accurate bass response of any headphone available”.

Double Fluxor™ Magnet Arrays bring the magnetic flux to 1.5 Tesla, nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm. The patented Fazor Element waveguide reduces diffraction of soundwaves.  Audeze say: “Combining our Fluxor™ magnet arrays, nano-scale diaphragm, Fazors, Uniforce voice coil, and other features, the LCD-4 and LCD-4z give you even lower distortion and greater accuracy – usually 1/10th the distortion of conventional headphones”.

Designed, engineered, and handmade in Audeze’s California factory, the Audeze LCD-4z retail at $3,995.00.
