Audeze have developed the EL-8 out of passion for achieving true studio sound. With the same eminent performance as the open-back model, the closed-back EL-8 version adds the advantage of isolating the listener and reducing ambient noise. Armoured with advanced technologies and crafted with care and attention, this closed backed version offers luxury reference level listening when connected to a low-powered external headphone amplifier or portable device with the benefit of greater privacy and isolation from the environment.

Instead of utilising traditional dynamic cone drivers, Audeze EL-8 utilise a neodymium magnetic planar transducer design. Magnetic planar technology differs from traditional dynamic cone designs by suspending a thin lightweight diaphragm within a parallel magnetic plane comprised of an array of magnets. The benefits of a magnetic planar design include faster transient response due to the lighter diaphragm, a wide frequency with low distortion, better heat dissipation, fewer moving parts for greater durability without sonic degradation.

Audeze EL-8 are a refined and contemporary addition to the acclaimed Audeze planar magnetic headphone heritage that personifies modern luxury. Devoid of anything superfluous and designed for lifelong ownership, the EL-8 is as crisp as the sound it reproduces, yet as warm as the comfort it affords. The suspended headband and contoured earpads evenly distribute pressure and weight, reducing fatigue and improving fit.

Fluxor Magnetic Structure
With new, patent-pending Fluxor magnetic technology the Audeze EL-8 delivers nearly double the magnetic flux density of the highest-grade neodymium magnetic circuits. This remarkable achievement results in reduced weight with greater efficiency to work with mobile devices.

Fazor Elements
Fazors are special acoustical elements positioned on either side of the magnetic structure that enhances transparency by influencing sound waves generated by large planar diaphragms. Benefits include extended frequency response, improved high-frequency extension, phase response and lowered distortion with enhanced presentation.

Uniforce Diaphragms
Patent-pending Uniforce diaphragms configured with variable trace widths in the voice-coil that effectively capture variations in the magnetic field within the magnetic gaps creating a uniform driving force across the diaphragm surface. This results in dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
