Audeze has a brand new flagship headphone. Naturally, it's called the LCD-5.

The looks leave no mistake that this is an Audeze headphone. The distinctive headband and grilles are all there. The overall design is best described as a cross between the LCD-4 and LCD-MX4.

The driver is an all-new and has revised Fluxor magnets, updated Fazor waveguides, and new Parallel Uniforce voice coils.

These components come together to give lower impedance – so the LCD-5 works better with a wider range of sources and amplifiers – and lower weight.

Speaking of weight, thanks to the redesigned driver and materials such as carbon fibre, magnesium, and aluminium, Audeze has been able to bring the weight of the LCD-5 down to 420g. That's about 270g or a third less than the 690g LCD-4.

The LCD-5 also has all-new earpads which are sculpted and internally sloped to reduce unwanted resonance and interior reflections.

The Audeze LCD-5 has an impedance rating of 14 ohms, which is significantly lower than the 200 ohms of the LCD-4 and 110 ohms of the LCD-3. Sensitivity is 90 dB/1mw. Every LCD-5 will come with a high-purity OCC cable.
