Bold new look The LCD-4z features a dark sleek aesthetic with gold accents. The magnesium rings of the LCD-4z are designed to be strong, lightweight, and non-resonant for a very clean output.
So, Audeze took their flagship LCD4 added a new look and greater efficiency, to their award-winning top-of-the-line LCD-4 and engineered it with a special 15 ohm voice-coil making it significantly easier to drive than the original LCD-4. OK, I do believe this is a real improvement because many of us use portables with less then real power so you don’t have an opportunity to really hear the phones and for those who dont like change the LCD-4z model does not replace the original 200 ohm LCD-4, but offers a perfect solution for users seeking more head room so, everyone is happy – are you happy???
-4z is sure to thrill! Engineered with a new magnesium housing to produce a light-weight, visually appealing headphone, the LCD-4z maintains the sound signature of LCD-4.
I have tried dozens of cans over the years my first AKG’s I still use with my Marshal guitar amp! And the Stax, Koss, Sennheiser & Beyers I’ve owned and loved over the years still have nothing in these IMPO, and nearing 40 years of use I believe that the LCD-4z is the all around BEST audiophile headphone and say that as I just sold My Abyss 1266Phi
Just think these sound better!
