CanJam SoCal 2019: HyperX and Audeze

By | June 24th, 2019|Categories: Innerfidelity|

I stopped by the HyperX booth on Saturday mainly intending to take a break from more intensive listening, and found myself doing quite the opposite.

The headphone is essentially a wired-only version of the Mobius with a tuning by HyperX. As usual, take show impressions with quite a grain of salt, but my immediate impression on putting them on was that they sounded better than the original Mobius itself. The bass was punchier and tighter, and the upper midrange seemed more natural and less artificial than the Mobius.… Read the full article

T.H.E. Show 2019: Phonitor X Preamp and DAC with Audeze LCD2 Closed Back

By | June 12th, 2019|Categories: Innerfidelity|

I was first exposed to the SPL (Sound Performance Lab) Phonitor X ($2,499 USD) a few years ago and its sound signature (or lack of one) has stayed with me since. It qualifies as a reference preamp/headamp/DAC in my books for a number of reasons, not least of which is its versatility for personal listening and two-channel audio, so when I saw it at the Audeze booth in the Marketplace at T.H.E. Show, I knew I’d have to revisit it.

First, some background.… Read the full article

Audeze Ups Its Video Game – The New LCD-GX

By | May 14th, 2019|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , |

Audeze LCD-GX Gaming Headphone

It hasn’t been that long since Audeze revealed its intensions to move from the heart of its beloved audiophile crowd and touch down on the lucrative market of video gaming. Initially, the OC-based company went big with the Mobius, including head tracking and a slew of digital niceties to add to their core of planar magnetic technologies.

Now, a new effort has silently slid into the market. The Audeze LCD-GX popped up at the High End Munich show this year with not so much as a trumpet blast, and then even more covertly popped up on the company website this week.… Read the full article

Audeze LCD-GX: Audeze Gets its Audiophile Game Face On

By | May 12th, 2019|Categories: Innerfidelity|

Just when many thought the Audeze gaming headphone experience couldn’t get any better thanks to their Mobius planar-magnetic cans, the company goes all audiophile and breaks out an $899 USD version for the top-tier line in the newly announced LCD-GX.

Slipping the leash at High End in Munich, the LCD-GX is being touted by Audeze as “the world’s first high-end purist gaming headphones” with an open-back design featuring the company’s patented Fluxor magnets and razor-thin Uniforce planar diaphragms with drivers “two to four times the size found in other gaming headphones.” Audeze claims “unprecedented sound quality with clear voice chat for the serious audiophile gamer” as well, so with all this hype I’m expecting a big step up from the Mobius experience – which is one I heartily enjoy, and that Grover Neville reviewed for InnerFidelity HERE.… Read the full article

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
