Audeze LCD-5

After 4 comes 5 – Hello LCD-5, the new $4'500 flagship planarmagnetic from Audeze with 1/3rd less weight as the propaganda puts it. That now means a more manageable 420g. There's a new pattern of Parallel Uniforce voice coils on the 90mm membranes, Audeze speak for traces of varying widths "to keep impedance low and provide increased voltage headroom by altering the current density within each trace. This also allows increased space between the magnets." The earpads feature new sculpting with internally sloped walls which mean less contact area to reduce wear fatigue. The neodymium N50 motor creates 90dB/1mW sensitivity at 14Ω impedance
