Like many high-tech companies, the Audeze story began in a small garage out in Orange County, California. After meeting an ex-NASA engineer who developed flexible circuit materials, the founders of Audeze quickly realized it could be used in more than just spacecrafts. Incredibly thin, remarkably strong, and surprisingly agile, the material was perfect for use as a diaphragm in planar magnetic headphones (a design that uses vibrating ribbons instead of conical drivers to produce sound). And with a big bang, Audeze was born.
From over-ears to in-ears, there’s a lot of technology that goes into these headphones — and with stunning results: an audiophile-grade experience that rivals some of the best stereo systems in the world.
