American high-end headphone manufacturer Audeze has launched the LCDi4 In-Ear Headphones at $2,495. The company took the LCD-4 design and scaled it down to create an end-game in-ear headphone that is far more portable, which comes with the braided cable made of silver-plated OCC copper with Kevlar threads.
The Audeze LCDi4 In-Ear Headphones are manufactured in the United States at a factory in Southern California, and have been developed in collaboration with Designworks, a subsidiary of car maker BMW. The headset is utilizing the same ultra-thin diaphragm that is used in the LCD4s and company’s own patented technologies like the Fluxor magnets and Uniforce voice coil technology.
It speaks specifically of 30mm planar magnetic driver, supported by Neodymium N50 magnets along with Fluxor magnetic structure and Uniforce voice coil technology. The earphones are made of magnesium and weigh 12 grams each. The specific sensitivity of 105dB/1mW, a sound pressure exceeding 120dB, a frequency response of 5Hz – 50kHz and a total harmonic distortion of less than 0.2%. The impedance is 35ohms.
