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.

Extended Yoke Rods

Audeze offers 1” longer custom-machined yoke rods that allow the earpads and drivers to extend farther around the head.

3 ½” long (+1" longer than the standard pin)

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
