Professional engineers and music aficionados looking for detail and transparency without disturbing their neighbors will be thrilled by the leather Audeze LCD-XC Headphones Creators 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 headphone amplifier or portable device. The creator package includes a single 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 a smartphone or tablet. 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 0.1%, an impedance of 20 ohms, an efficiency of 100 dB per 1 mW, and a total output SPL of over 130 dB when driven by 5 watts. The closed-back earcups are made from anodized aluminum rings with open-cell foam that's covered in lambskin leather. The Audeze LCD-XC are handmade in the USA.
