"... it delivers extraordinary resolution, hard-hitting dynamics, accurate and powerful bass, and spacious imaging. The Audeze EL-8 is a force to be reckoned with..."

The EL-8 is flexible, portable, lightweight and loaded with new technology for extreme performance. It works beautifully with most portable players and phones. Designed by BMW DesignWorks USA and available in open and closed-back models, they're built with superb craftsmanship, wood veneer accents, and enormous attention to detail. The EL-8 features the world's most advanced planar magnetic technology with sound quality unheard of in this or any other price category.

The beautifully veneered ear cups are not simply round as with many "normal" headphones, but styled to better fit the human ear for extended comfort. The weighty 480g of EL-8, necessitated in part by the high grade drivers won't grow tiring, even on long listening sessions thanks to the well engineered adjustable headband.

Planar Magnetic Transducer

Planar Magnetic Transducer

This is an ultra-thin membrane which offers incredibly low total harmonic distortion and capable of stunning sound quality which lies at the heart of the El-8's design. Oversized magnetic structures deliver the greatest flux density of any headphone available. The greater the flux density, the better the planar membrane is driven resulting in better transient response.

Fazor Elements

Fazor Elements

Fazors are special acoustical elements positioned on either side of the magnetic structure that enhances transparency by influencing sound waves generated by large planar diaphragms. Benefits include extended frequency response, improved high-frequency extension, phase response, and lowered distortion with better imaging.
