The worlds most advanced planar magnetic headphone, the Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back Headphones!
The Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back Headphones features patent-pending Fluxor, Uniforce technology. Extreme performance in a closed-back model for greater privacy and isolation from the environment.
"Just like its upmarket Audeze siblings the EL-8 is designed and made in the US. Not only that, I think it's more comfortable and better looking than Audeze's higher-end LCD series headphones. The EL-8 is one of the few planar magnetic headphones to shine when plugged into portable (battery-powered) music players... I love this headphone, it delivers extraordinary resolution, hard-hitting dynamics, accurate and powerful bass, and spacious imaging. The Audeze EL-8 is a force to be reckoned with." - Steve Guttenberg, www.cnet.com
"Bottom line, these sound fantastic and are an absolute joy to listen to music with. If you want that natural sound with a grand soundstage, you got it. Want that fantastic top-end, and tricky-to-master smooth midrange? Thats in abundance too. These cover the full sound spectrum with consummate ease. Moving from the bassy kick in up-tempo music, to the instrument and vocal separation in live performances, the EL-8 adapt almost seamlessly... Fantastic sound quality packed into a beautifully crafted design." - Michael Sawh, www.trustedreviews.com
"Audezes brazenly advanced EL-8 come dangerously close to the performance youd expect from headphones costing upward of $1,000... if youre looking to step into serious performance for under a grand, Audezes EL-8 are a shining beacon at the top of their class." - Ryan Waniata, www.digitaltrends.com
The Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back Headphones offers all the benefits of the Open-Back EL-8 flexible, lightweight and loaded with new technology while isolating the listener and reducing ambient noise as no sound escapes the earcups. The Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back Headphones is also sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and smartphones, but an external amplifier produces better results. They're built with superb craftsmanship, wood veneer accents and enormous attention to detail.
