The Audeze EL-8 has been designed by Designworks, which is a subsidiary of the BMW group as part of a collaboration between Audeze and BMW Designworks. It comes in an open-backed model for those who prefer a music experience as close to a live experience as possible and listen to music at home. It also comes in a close-backed model for when you're out and about, for example on a train or in a bus.
The El-8 has features that are unique to Audeze, the first of which is the Uniforce Diaphragm. This patent-pending feature utilises an industry first in the form of variable trace widths in the voice coil. It gives the audiophile a listening experience with minimal distortion and very superior imaging by combining the diaphragm with our planar magnetic technology that is leagues ahead of anything comparable.
Another unique and patent-pending feature is the Fluxor magnetic structure. The structure utilises the highest grade magnets and has double the magnetic flux density. What this means for you is that the EL-8 is much lighter at 460 grams than the usual Audeze headphones you are used to. It also helps make the headphones work better with mobile devices.
The patent-pending Fazor technology that we first used in the LCD collection is also used in the EL-8 to great advantage. What are Fazors? They are special aural elements that are placed on either side of the magnetic structure and affect the audio waves that are generated by the large planar diaphragms. In doing so, they increase the transparency, cut down the distortion and extend the frequency response.
In collaborating with BMW Designworks, Audeze has created a beautiful and sleek wood-finished look for the EL-8 headphones. The combination of woods selected by hand and the finest artistry and expertise along with technology that is far ahead of anyone else means that you get an unparalleled listening experience.The EL-8 headphones give you the most natural sound possible so that your music experience is as close to the real thing as can be. With Audeze's cutting-edge technology and headphones that work comfortably for you for hours, you can be assured that you will experience an aural experience like no other.
