AUDEZE LCD-2 classic - the modern new edition of a trendsetter
Now - after almost 10 years - there is the AUDEZE LCD-2 classic a modern reissue of the then trendsetter with a similar sound signature, but manufacturing technology on today's level. He lacks, as the former model, the Fazor elements. The wood has given way to a frame made of black special nylon in identical shape (especially on the audio jacks). The new headband and the overall lighter, very well-fitting construction, as well as the price, make the AUDEZE LCD-2 classic a potential favorite in the professional and private environment.

AUDEZE has managed to transfer the phenomenal bass qualities of the very first LCD2 series almost lossless to their latest derivative and to revive old musical qualities. In addition the LCD2 Classic captivates with the rich and wonderful tone colors typical for magnetostatic area radiators in the middle tone range.
Due to the slightly restrained level in the treble, the AUDEZE also cultivates a gentle handling of sibilants and thus allows the listener a long-term suitable and relaxed listening pleasure. If you consider the pricing of the AUDEZE LCD2 C with an UPE of 899, - Euro and put it in relation to the offered performance of the headphones, so the Californians can only be congratulated on a great litter.
