The EL-8 is the clear choice for anyone looking for audiophile and pro-grade sound. Users worldwide rave about the quality and clarity of sound in this portable, over-the-ear headphone.
"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!"
Exclusive EL-8 planar magnetic technology
Acoustically engineered for accuracy
Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers astonishingly clear and accurate sound.
Diaphragms thinner than a human hair
We use space-age materials in a near weightless diaphragm that’s three times larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
Near zero distortion
Patented Uniforce voice-coil technology delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion.
Nearly double the magnetic driving force
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.
