Exclusive EL-8 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.


Engineered and handcrafted in our California factory

The sturdy aluminum 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 our Southern California factory and engineered to immerse you in sound.


Cutting-edge industrial design by BMW’s i8 team
