Audeze LCD2 Closed-Back Headphones

Introducing Audeze's brand new closed-back headphone, the LCD2 Closed-Back. The LCD2 Closed is a closed-back take on Audeze's LCD2 Classic and features the same dual carbon fibre suspension system that Audeze has now implemented throughout their LCD series. Its not the first closed-back from Audeze but its certainly their best!

Audeze is taking a stab at the $700-900 closed-back market, competing directly with the MrSpeakers AEON Flow Closed as well as Campfire Audio's Cascade, however it is priced for $100 more than those two offerings. It does seem like a good fit in between those two headphones with the Cascade being very bass-heavy while the AEON Flow Closed is on the neutral side of things. The LCD2 Closed-Back fits in between while being a warm headphone. For those of you who have heard Audeze's house sound, you will be familiar with what is on offer with the LCD2 Closed-Back. Great relaxing low-end, a little bit of recessed mids, as well as present highs.

The LCD2 Closed-Back is built with crystal-infused nylon rings and contoured memory foam providing a ton of comfort on your head. The LCD2 Closed do seem to have a bit more clamping pressure than others in the LCD series but after some time, the pressure lets up.

We have had a pair of the Audeze LCD2 Closed-Back headphones in the office for the last couple days and we are currently forming our opinion on them. Look for this page to be updated with more information as well as measurements!
