Audeze LCD-4z Headphone Review

By | March 22nd, 2019|Categories: Innerfidelity|

What do you do when you have what many critics in the hobby hail as one of the finest headphones in the world – the LCD-4 – but lament that they are difficult to drive from anything than the most grunt-worthy amplifier? If you’re Audeze you have your engineering teams go back to the Planar-Magnetic open-headphone drawing board and come up with something that sounds just as good, but that can be driven by not only any portable or desktop amplifier on the market, but could be even be powered by a smart phone.… Read the full article

By | March 5th, 2019|Categories: Innerfidelity|

Things here at the bungalow are settling down into a more well-oiled machine status after the birth of my second daughter a few weeks ago, and with that comes more in-depth reviews.

With that said I wanted to let readers know what was coming up in the pipeline so they knew what to expect in the coming weeks.

First up will be the closed-back, dynamic-driver Sennheiser HD 820 equipped with the company’s “ring radiator” technology. The HD 820 is the latest iteration of the legendary 800-series (HD 800, HD800S).… Read the full article

Audeze LCD-4z Planar Magentic Headphone

By | February 26th, 2019|Categories: Absolute Sound|Tags: |

Audeze LCD-4z Planar Magentic Headphone

A few years ago, I got a call from the late Arnie Nudell, perhaps the best designer of high-performance loudspeakers in history. He raved about how good the Audeze LCD-4 planar-magnetic headphone was and encouraged me to buy a pair. Indeed, the LCD-4 garnered many rave reviews, most notably for its clarity, deep bass extension, and exceptional midrange performance. However, with its high-impedance 200-ohm voice coil, the LCD-4 required a powerful headphone amplifier, essentially ruling it out for portable applications. Additionally, some objected to the LCD-4’s relatively heavy and bulky feel.… Read the full article

Audeze Mobius Preview

By | September 5th, 2018|Categories: Innerfidelity|

Audeze’s Sankar Thiagasamudram was curious if I’d be interested in his company’s latest effort – the $399 USD Mobius – targeted mainly at gamers and multi-channel audio-mastering professionals in the film industry.

The Mobius features a suite of software management tools utilizing Waves Nx DSP technology that allows for an incredible amount of personalized sonic customization. According to Audeze “Waves is … the driving power behind hit records, major motion pictures and popular video games the world over.” Waves has received a Technical Grammy® Award [and] is acclaimed by top professional and prosumer users worldwide.” Waves tech includes Room Emulation which creates a “…sense of space and reflection of the sound within a room.”

Integrated Head Tracking that enables the Mobius to “precisely track even the tiniest head movements 1,000 times a second and feeds the 3D emulation algorithm.”

Sound Localization technology adjusts “as the positioning of your head changes, Mobius identifies and maintains the source of the sound, changing dynamically as you move.”

I responded I’d be happy to try the Audeze Mobius, adding that since my son was an avid gamer and attending a technical film school perhaps I’d let him take them for a spin as well.… Read the full article
