Quoting Audeze’s LCD-5 page:
For the past decade, Audeze’s LCD series has set the standard for planar magnetic headphone performance. Starting with the LCD-2 that ushered in a new era of planar technology in 2009, we then introduced the LCD-3 in 2011 and LCD-4 in 2015. With the LCD-5, everything has been improved – drivers, earpads, frame design - to set a new standard for performance and comfort.
High-level Product Features:
- New planar driver and magnet structure extends frequency response
- 1/3 less weight than the LCD-4!
- New sculpted earpad design improves upper midrange response
- Improved structural design incorporating magnesium, acetate and carbon-fiber
