Professional engineers and audio aficionados will be thrilled by the leather-free Audeze LCD-X Headphones Creator Package, a pair of high-performance reference planar magnetic headphones, designed for professional mixing, mastering, and reference level personal Hi-Fi listening when connected to a low-powered external headphones amplifier or portable device. The Music Creator Package offers the same LCD-X headphones, but with only the standard single-ended 1/4" to dual 4-pin mini XLR cable and an economy travel case.
The headphones are sensitive enough to be driven by portable music players such as iPods, iPhones, and other smartphones. Instead of utilizing traditional dynamic cone drivers, the headphones implement a neodymium planar magnetic transducer design to deliver a frequency response of 10 to 50 kHz with a THD of less than 1%, an impedance of 20 ohms, an efficiency of 103 dB per 1 mW, and a total output SPL of over 130 dB when driven by 5 watts. The headphone earcups are made of anodized aluminum with black, open-cell foam covered egg-based protein leather-free earpads. The Audeze LCD-X are handmade in the USA.
