Picture Sunday – Audeze MX-4

Disclaimer: The star of this weeks’ picture Sunday is the Audeze MX-4. This post is a part of our Picture Sunday series.


Audeze MX-4

The Audeze MX-4 is Audeze’s newest reference offering. The MX-4 goes for $2995 which puts it right between the LCD-3 and the LCD-4. You can find out all about it here: https://www.audeze.com/products/lcd-collection/lcd-mx4

I prefer the MX-4 over the LCD-4 myself, but I do like that it comes with the nice carbon headband.

Belhifi, the Belgian seller, was so nice so let us use their model for a review. As you can see the MX-4 comes in a large hard case/travel case, but there only was a single ended cable, and gloves in the box, and that for me at this price just is very little.

Powered by Audeze’s patented Fluxor magnets, the LCD-MX4 focuses 1.5 Tesla of magnetic flux on the lightweight 20 ohm impedance diaphragm. It is perfect for use where one isn’t likely to have a dedicated high-powered headphone amp and can be driven easily by a laptop or studio equipment. The LCD-MX4 headphones’ new lightweight design includes a durable magnesium housing with a carbon fiber headband. Significantly lighter than the LCD4 model, the new MX4 is perfect for long mixing sessions and hours of critical listening.

The Audeze MX-4 will be staying with us for a few weeks, so expect a review soon!

Have a nice weekend!

Lieven is living in Europe and he's the leader of the gang. Coming from a musical family he's always been interested in good sound. Unlike his family members the only musical instruments he plays are amps and DACs. He loves playing with old tubes and discovering new products while staying faithful to the good old Sennheiser HD650.

    At this price range you guys should try to compare with a competitive reference Stax system which has proven it self time and again for years like the 007 MK2, as so many headphones release in recent times in the range of $2000 and up but fail to stay in the conversation as years go by.

    E.G People still talk about the 009 and HD800 as a reference comparison and to an extent LCD 2 and HE 6 but who goes back talking about any other high end headphones on a regular basis.

      I’ve thought that also at times, but in the end I think most of those direct comparisons between ES, Dynamic, and Planar headphones belong in a FAQ. Comparing to a different type like that in a review – the fundamental difference is worth a mention, but can be a distraction too.
