This Audeze LCD-2 Review will discuss about one of the headphones manufactured by Audeze. The manufacturer always produce high quality headphones for the music enthusiasts. This headphone is the first version of Audeze LCD-2 headphone and no we can find other four newer models in this type. The manufacturer has a special goal in producing this headphone. They want to use the most modern materials and design in the headphone productions. So they can have headphone products with open and dynamic sound as well as the full and extended bass.
The Unique Design of Planar magnetic Headphones
The unique quality of the sound is had by Audeze LCD-2 for the open, magnetic design, circumauaral planar, and also the neodymium magnets in high grade. There are two components that are commonly had in the planar magnetic transducers, they are magnet arrays and diaphragm with the circuit. The planar magnetics are the field of magnet spread parallel to diaphragm. The lightweight and thin planar magnetic diaphragm is considered to be much better than the heavier dome diaphragm moving coil that are commonly applied in dynamic drivers
The magnetic arrays creates magnetic fields with the thin diaphragms suspended. Meanwhile, the planar magnetic diaphragm comes with printed circuit extent across the thin fil substrate surface. If the circuit got the energy from the audio signal, it will work together with the magnetic field and then produce the electromagnetic force. So the diaphragm will move back and forth to create the sounds.
Next, the forces from the magnetic field is spread to the diaphragm surfaces mostly, then the diaphragm of the planar magnetic will move faster and create better accuracy to make signal input. The forces of the magnet that move the diaphragm producing acceleration so achieving response in wide frequency, great quality of sound and low distortion. For the flat spread of circuit pattern across the surface of diaphragm, then it can dissolve the current passing heat in more efficient way. Besides, the transducers of the planar magnetic also have some moving parts and they can keep in good performance and never make any sonic degradation. Whilst the dynamic drivers that work with crowded moving parts and always using the glue joints, always degrade over the life performance.
Easy Drive of Planar Magnetic Circuits
The circuits of the diaphragm give nearly only resistive load to the amplifiers so the drive is easier. The impedance of the frequency range entirely is totally flat and can have various values of impedance. Some techniques are used by Audeze to improve the basic design of the planar magnetic, as well as the unique integration, optimized and stronger magnetic fields, very thin diaphragms and the circuit patterns. Based on some Audeze LCD-2 Review, the goal of creating the headphones is to bring the best design and improve the experience of personal audio.
