Shipping Notification

At Audeze, the health and safety of our employees and customers are our top priority. Because of the lockdown currently in place in California, we are limited in our ability to manufacture and ship headphones. We are fulfilling orders as quickly as possible and appreciate your patience.

If you need service/repairs, please write to support@audeze.com as usual. Because everyone is working from home, it may take a little extra time to respond, and it will definitely take a little longer for repairs. Thank you for your understanding, and we wish you health and safety.

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.
