Product Description

Audeze - EL-8 Open Back Planar Magnetic Headphones with In-Line Mic and Control Cable for iPhone/iPod/iPad - Pro-Grade Sound Quality Plus Maximum Comfort - Made in USA

ABOUT AUDEZE



Audeze started in 2008 in a garage (of course!) when its founders came across a revolutionary flexible circuit material developed for NASA. Realizing this could be a great advance in planar magnetic technology, they first started to make pro audio PA speakers, but dropped this project and started making headphones – the LCD-1.

Taking this first headphone to the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, it was a tremendous hit, and that success launched the company. Hanging on that garage wall was the 2001 Space Odyssey poster, and that inspired the company’s name. The founders wanted a name that had something to do with a “journey through audio,” so Odyssey would be perfect, and that’s how the name Audeze (pronounced “odyssey”) was born.

AUDEZE'S PLANAR MAGNETIC TECHNOLOGY

Audeze headphones employ cutting-edge planar magnetic headphone technology for more accurate, high-quality audiophile sound. Our high-end planar magnetic technology connects you to your favorite artists and musicians as if you were right there at the original event.

  • We use space-age materials in a near weightless diaphragm that’s four times larger than typical headphones for fast response times, higher resolution and improved imaging, and dramatically reduced distortion.
  • Patented Uniforce voice-coil technology delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion.
  • Patented Fluxor Magnet Arrays focus the magnetic flux nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for even lower distortion and greater accuracy.
  • Patented Fazor Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance, producing a more accurate waveform.

Product description

From the makers of Audeze LCD 3 and Audeze LCD 2, award-winning EL-8 Open Back Planar Magnetic Headphones offer an attractive price point, stellar design, usability and the quality of sound Audeze is known for. CNET raves, "The EL-8 Closed-Back is their lightest, most comfortable, best looking, easiest to drive, most affordable, made-in-the-U.S. headphone, and maintains Audeze's signature sound. Well done!" EL-8 Open-Back Headphones employ innovative planar magnetic technology to achieve astonishingly clear and accurate sound. They have near weightless diaphragms that are 3X's larger than average headphones like Sony headphones, Monster headphones, Sennheiser headphones or other Bluetooth headphones or wireless headphones. Acoustically engineered to deliver faster response times, reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging. So what's the difference between the open-back and closed back models of the EL-8? The open-back model has a little wider soundstage, but has some sound leakage (you'll hear more of the noises around you). The closed back has a little less soundstage - but still amazing, and it has better sound isolation than the open-back version.
