So-called "gaming" headphones have typically been more notable for their garish designs than their audio quality. Audeze is looking to change that with the LCD-GX. Set in a magnesium housing, their planar magnetic drivers are 2 to 4 times larger than those in typical gaming headphones. That size, combined with patented Fluxor magnets and ultra-thin Uniforce diaphragms, delivers unrivaled sonic performance both during gameplay and when monitoring, mixing, and editing audio. Handcrafted in California, they have memory foam ear pads and a weight-reducing suspension headband for comfort and a flexible gooseneck arm for optimal mic placement.
