Audeze LCD-1 - dawn of the planar in a new era

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Audeze LCD-1 brings the planar technology into this new era.
Audeze has been mentioned in some headfi threads, include the Ortho thread and CanJam2009 impressions.

As already many has reported, the sound quality is stunning. As a modern planar I have Fostex T50RP but the sound quality is completely in the different league. LCD-1 is far superior.
I think overall sound quality is well comparable to high-end cans. I also feel the sound is unique and haunting. That is very fast, much detailed and silky smooth. Bass is plenty and deep, no worry.
First I thought was this is something like Balanced Armature at this big. After some burnt-in, I feel this is something close to STAX as this shows very smooth response over the frequency spectrum. At the same time I think this is fairly musical.
Efficiency is low but no problem with today's good amps. The headphone audio world is much different from the time of YAMAHA HP-1.

LCD-1 proves the planar technology is not obsoleted. Rather it shines with modern powerful headphone amps and get a benefit from latest materials, magnets.
I can't wait for their next move.
