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.

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.
