Audeze launched new gaming headphones – the Audeze LCD-GX – at the High End Munich 2019 show, which took place from May 9-12.
The new open back headphones follow the success of Audeze’s award-winning Mobius gaming headphones. Combining Audeze’s magnesium construction with patented Fluxor magnets and ultra-thin Uniforce diaphragms delivering immersion and transient response, the GX’s advanced LCD planar magnetic drivers are two to four times the size found in other gaming headphones. This makes for high-quality attack and bass response not only for gaming, but for monitoring, mixing, and editing audio.
The Audeze LCD-GX is handcrafted in Audeze’s California factory featuring magnesium housing, memory foam ear pads, and a weight-reducing suspension headband design. The detachable microphone cable includes a mute button and flexible gooseneck arm, allowing customised positioning to ensure the optimal angle when communicating with online teammates.
The GX also includes a standard LCD series headphone cable for use without the mic, and a splitter/adapter for the separate mic and headphone signals. A foam pop filter is included with each LCD-GX to further reduce unwanted noise and improve voice clarity.
The new headphones will begin shipping in July 2019 with a retail price of $899.
