Carefully Crafted and Engineered

The EL-8 features a durable aluminum frame that is designed to last a lifetime. The headband and ear pads are handcrafted with comfortable faux leather material for the best sound and maximum comfort. Audeze designed the headphones to fit everyone and to provide superb long-term comfort for years to come. The EL-8 is made at Audeze’s Southern California factory and carefully crafted to immerse you in an unforgettable sound experience.

Audeze designed the EL-8 earphones to maintain this expressive sound, while crafting them to be convenient enough for everyday wear. State-of-the-art technology helps keep them smaller, lighter and much more efficient than traditional high-end headphones. This closed-back over-ear version for Apple devices provides a high-end audio experience on iOS devices. An additional Digital Audio Converter (DAC) enhances the experience, making your music and phone calls sound better than ever before.

Exclusive Technology for High Efficiency

For years, Audeze has been a leading innovator in designing and creating planar magnetic headphones. They continue to push the envelope, improving their sound by including only the best technology. With the EL-8, Audeze has discovered a way to decrease weight and improve efficiency like never before. They developed the state-of-the-art Fluxor magnet, which nearly doubles the strength of conventional magnetic headphones for lower distortion and greater accuracy. The patented Fluxor magnet makes the EL-8 a powerful yet small and lightweight choice.

The EL-8 is crafted with highly efficient, space-age materials in a near weightless diaphragm that is three times larger than traditional high-end over-ear headphones for quick response times, significantly reduced distortion, higher resolution audio and improved overall imaging. Fazor Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance, generating a more accurate waveform.

Cutting-Edge Industrial Design

Audeze collaborated with renowned design partner DesignWorks to craft a stunning industrial design for the EL-8’s. Audeze combined their state-of-the-art designs with their own leading planar magnetic technologies to craft an exceedingly accurate sounding pair of earphones with a custom aluminum frame and unique floating headband to maintain maximum comfort over long listening sessions.

High-Resolution Audio

Enhance your listening experience with Audeze’s unique CIPHER cable. These headphones feature an inline chip system that brings your music to levels you never thought possibly by excluding the iPhone’s standard internal Digital Audio Converter (DAC) and amplifier and streaming high-resolution audio to our impressive DAC with Digital Signal Processing (DSP) for significantly better audio quality. The Cipher cable also includes a SIRI-compatible microphone for voice commands.

These have received good reviews, they are far less expensive than LCD-3s, and the price at World Wide Stereo is the lowest I found with the exception of refurb units directly from Audeze which are never in stock.
