Audeze engineers have refined membranes, tamed magnets, and improved frequency response with flagship LCD-5. Upward movement is the justified strategy.
Audeze’s New Flagship Headphones: Where to Go After the LCD-5?
With membranes honed, magnets tamed, and even frequency response politely bowing where engineers at Audeze deem necessary, it seems like there’s nowhere else to go after their flagship LCD-5 headphones. But upward movement is a justified strategy…
The LCD-5s were released in 2020 and are coveted by audiophiles for their exceptional sound quality. They feature an open-back design with ultra-thin diaphragms made of nano-scale materials that provide unparalleled accuracy across the entire audio spectrum.
So What Could Be Next?
Rumors have been circulating about Audeze working on a new planar magnetic driver technology that promises even better performance than what we’ve seen so far from them or other headphone manufacturers.
This advancement could lead to improved bass response without sacrificing clarity in mids and highs – something that many listeners crave but is often difficult for traditional dynamic drivers to achieve. Additionally, this new technology may allow for higher sensitivity levels or lower distortion compared with previous models.
In addition to technological advancements in driver design, there are other areas where Audeze can continue pushing forward:
