Hear No Evil - The Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back Planar Magnetic Headphones With Apple Cable Isolate Sound With Near Zero Distortion
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 closed-back EL-8 offers all the benefits of the open-back EL-8 — flexible, lightweight and loaded with new technology — while isolating the listener and reducing ambient noise as no sound escapes the earcups. The EL-8 closed-back is also sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and smartphones, but an external amplifier produces better results. They're built with superb craftsmanship, wood veneer accents and enormous attention to detail.
To quote CNET, "The EL-8 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
Audeze uses 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.
Their strategic partner Designworks, a BMW group subsidiary, provided the industrial design for the EL-8. Audeze combines their cutting-edge designs with their own advanced planar magnetic technologies to create an astonishingly accurate sounding headphone with a custom aluminum frame and unique floating headband to provide maximum comfort over long listening sessions.
ENGINEERED AND HANDCRAFTED IN THE AUDEZE CALIFORNIA FACTORY
The sturdy aluminum frame is built to last a lifetime, the earpads and headband are handcrafted with luxurious faux leather for best sound and maximum comfort. The headband fits everyone and contributes to superb long-term comfort. The EL-8 is made at their Southern California factory and engineered to immerse you in sound.
