"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."

Read the full review by Steve Guttenberg in Sound & Vision: "Dynamic impact is astonishing, you never get the feeling you’re approaching the limits of what it can do."
Steve Guttenberg Sound & Vision
"Highly recommended, exceptionally well-made, extremely comfortable, for those wanting an alternative to loudspeakers or the best from a desktop system."
Stuart and Linette Smith Hifi Pig
"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 Audio-Head
“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 Forbes
"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 HiFi+
"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."
Srajan Ebaen Digital Audio Review
"I can't offer a higher headphone recommendation. Audeze has rewritten the rules of engagement again."
Michael Mercer 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 Audio360.com
"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."
