"The best closed-backs I’ve heard ... as close as a closed-back model has ever gotten to the awesome spatiality of the best open-back headphones."

"Highly recommended, exceptionally well-made, extremely comfortable, for those wanting an alternative to loudspeakers or the best from a desktop system."

"A flagship headphone in its own right. Those looking for the best close-back on the market won’t have to look very far to find value in the XC. Highly recommended."
Brian Hunter
“One of the sweetest sounding, most tonally perfect headphone I’ve ever encountered. It’s like walking into a world-class concert hall with close to zero noise level."
"From the butter-soft leather, to the gorgeous wood earcups, they exude luxury in a way most headphones don’t."
Geoffrey Morrison
"Having created a new driver for the LCD-XC, Audeze went on to apply the driver in a new open-back model, called the LCD-X."  
Chris Martens
"With the LCD-XC you’re an instant member of the luxo club and a posh headfi citizen ... Altogether serious and end-of-the-road headphones for those demanding the best."

Positive Feedback
"In our collective opinions, the LCD-X and LCD-XC are nothing short of the very best headphones from Audeze."
Mercer, Warren Chi, Michael Llang
"The LCD-XC's bass weight and velocity was sickeningly good. The mids and highs crisp and coherent. I could've sat there all day."
