      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.
