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.
