    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 force
Patented 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.

    Customise your sound in real-time with the Audeze iOS App

    
The Audeze DSP app features two presets to personalise your music playback. It features a 10-band equaliser that changes EQ in real time. Refine the bass levels and tamp down the highs on peak recordings you still love. Save two EQ curve presets that travel with the cable when switching devices.

    Uniforce Diaphragm

    
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, hear a sound that has reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.

    Ultra Thin-Film Diaphragms

    
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.

    "The Audeze EL-8 Titanium are well made headphones that certainly make their mark as a more premium offering in the Lightning headphone market.However, when they fall short in the levels of detail, subtlety and dynamics that we’d expect at this price, they become really hard to recommend."

     

     

    Wired
    "We really, really wanted to recommend these headphones.The design is phenomenal. The comfort is second to none, and we had no problem listening to these for hours on end. Outside of a few minor niggles, the sound is excellent, and feels genuinely premium."

     

     

    Mens-Journal
    "For all the audio engineering effort in EL-8, it was let down by the ergonomics of the headphones. Although songs sound great on the headphone, we don’t feel compelled to use it as much as our other headphones."

Quality of Bass i.e Speed is awesome!

Now, this was one thing I was totally focused on on my HPZ visit on Oct 28.

I tried the Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO and the Audeze EL-8 Titanium on a variety of sources: Schiit Fulla 2, Opus #11, Chord Mojo, Audeze Deckard. And we also threw other headphones into the mix, briefly: Ultrasone Edition 8 Ex, Audeze LCD-3 (IIRC).

We listened to a variety of different tracks: DSD, Hi-Res flacs and Gaana too.

We were listening to a DSD and a flac (TIDAL) composition back and forth.

The immediate difference between these and the DT 1990 is the speed and soundstage (this is obvious because closed vs open). The lack of soundstage on EL-8 could have made details/instruments meld into each other but that didn't quite happen. Reason: Planar speed. They aren't as transparent and resolving as the DT 1990, for sure. They do feel like they are spitting out more details to you than DT 1990, but they aren't. Detail level on these is same as the DT 1990, no difference at all. The tonal balance of the EL-8 felt more neutral than the DT 1990 (remember, the 1990 had B-pads factory installed).
Also, quality of bass i.e. speed is better. If there are some tracks that have bass bleeding into mids, that will not happen easily on these cans because it will decay fast enough. The mids are quite linear, not very forward not very laid-back. There is a lot of transparency in the mids, everything is rendered true to the bits. The highs are quite good, extended (maybe not as extended as Beyerdynamic DT 1990, probably) and detailed. Female vocals sound great, though I found that the highs are slightly smoother/forgiving on the Audeze EL-8 than the Beyerdynamic DT 1990 (just an observation, whether it's good or bad depends on ones personal preference)
