Audeze EL-8 Titanium
Audeze is company based in the United States which manufactures world class planar magnetic headphones. These headphones are known for their strong aesthetic appeal and rich sound quality. They have distinguished themselves as leaders in the open-back planar magnetic headphones market, and have released additional closed back models to critical acclaim. We also recommend Audeze headphones for anyone who covets bass performance, as their bass detail and impact are exceptional.
The EL-8 Titanium headphones come with an exclusive lightning cable that streams a complete 24-bit digital signal through a high quality DSP and DAC to offer better sound quality. The built in microphone can be used for phone calls and is SIRI compatible. An accompanying Audeze app can be used to apply EQ and sound presets. For non- Apple device compatibility, the headphones also include a standard analog cable.
The 100mm planar magnetic driver has the largest surface area of any headphone in its class. They’re easy to drive with Audeze’s exclusive Fluxor Magnetic technology, nano-scale diaphragms, and advanced voice-coil technology that allows a wide variety of portable players and headphone amps to immerse you in sound. The EL-8 Titanium comes with the Cipher cable that greatly extends its capabilities. Listen to music, interact with Siri, and make or take phone calls on your Apple device.
