Occasionally we receive customer feedback that Audeze headphones fit a bit too snug. As a result, Audeze offers 1” longer custom-machined yoke rods that allow the earpads and drivers to extend farther around the head.

If you’ve wished your Audeze headphones were a little bigger or looser-fitting, Audeze goes the extra step to assure your comfort.

These 3 ½” extended yoke rods, like our standard yokes, are fabricated from aluminum in limited runs by a computer-controlled lathe.

The process is as follows:

  • Before each run trained machinists calibrate the computer numerical controlled (CNC) lathes
  • CNC lathes are programmed, set, and run through trials to ensure consistent quality
  • CNC milling uses cutters that precisely remove material via rotating rods
  • Cutting rods are tumble-finished to smooth and polish any rough surfaces
  • A surface finishing process called passivation strengthens the yoke rods and protects them from corrosion
  • A trained supervisor double-checks the parts
