EL-8 Open-Back Headphone
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.
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 forcePatented Fluxor Magnet Arrays focus the magnetic flux nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for even lower distortion and greater accuracy.Internal soundwaves Patented Fazor Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance producing a more accurate waveform.
Fluxor Magnetic Structure
The new patent-pending Fluxor magnetic technology allows the EL-8 to nearly double the magnetic flux density of the highest-grade neodymium magnetic circuits. This results in a more lightweight design and greater efficiency while working with mobile devices.
Ultimate Listening Experience
Employing unique design and advanced transducer technology, Audeze's headphones provide total comfort for hours on end. Combining legendary style with the world’s most advanced planar magnetic technology, delivering the ultimate listening experience.
Diaphragms thinner than a human hair
We use space-age materials in an ultra-thin diaphragm four times larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
Engineered and handcrafted in our California factory
The sturdy aluminium 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 Audeze's Southern California factory and engineered to immerse you in sound.
The EL-8 utilises a patent pending Uniforce diaphragm that has variable trace widths in the voice-coil that effectively capture variations in the magnetic field within the magnetic gaps by equalising the forces of the individual traces, creating a uniform driving force across the diaphragm surface. You can, therefore, a sound that has reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
Unlike a dynamic driver with a cone or dome attached to around voice coil, Audeze's flat, thin-film diaphragm has a printed circuit across most of its surface. When the circuit is energised with an audio signal it interacts with magnets that move the diaphragm back and forth, creating sound. Thereby, giving a clear sound reproduction that makes you feel as if your are listenning in a studio.
Best in Class Audio Accuracy
Audeze headphones’ best-in-class accuracy makes them an irreplaceable tool for those requiring the most transparent audio reproduction available. Besides being first discovered by audiophiles, now professional engineers and music producers are using these headphones as their new reference.
