The closed-back EL-8 offers all the benefits of the open-back EL-8 — flexible, lightweight and loaded with new technology. The closed-back model has all the sonic benefits of the open-back model and provides a quiet listening environment, even in noisy areas, to fully enjoy music with virtually no ambient noise. The EL-8 features all of Audeze technologies including Fluxor magnetics, Uniforce diaphragms and Fazor elements delivering deep bass, an engaging midrange, and a sweet, detailed top end with no breakup modes. The EL-8 closed-back 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.
Package includes professional studio-quality flat straight cables. Out of the box connector support for 3.5mm to 1/4in stereo adapter.
These heavy duty headphones come with a ultra soft headphone sack for portability.
Fluxor™ Magnetic Technology
With Audeze's patent-pending Fluxor magnetic technology introduced in the EL-8, Audeze delivers nearly double the magnetic flux density of the highest-grade neodymium magnetic circuits available. This remarkable achievement results in reduced weight with greater efficiency to work with mobile devices.
Uniforce™ Diaphram Technology
The EL-8’s patent-pending Uniforce diaphragm employs an industry first - variable trace widths in the voice-coil to effectively capture variations in the magnetic field within the magnetic gaps by equalizing the forces of the individual traces, creating a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm surface. This results in dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
Audeze patent-pending Fazor technology, introduced in the LCD Collection, is also integrated into the EL-8. Fazors are special acoustical elements positioned on either side of the magnetic structure. They enhance transparency by affecting the sound waves generated by large planar diaphragms. A few of the benefits include extended frequency response, improved high-frequency extension, and lowered distortion, with better imaging.
