The EL-8 is flexible, portable, lightweight and loaded with new technology for extreme performance. It works beautifully with most portable players and phones. Designed by BMWDesignWorks USA and available in open and closed-back models, they're built with superb craftsmanship, wood veneer accents, and enormous attention to detail. The EL-8 is possessed of the world's most advanced planar magnetic technology with sound quality unheard of in this or any other price category.
The closed-back EL-8 offers all the benefits of the open-back EL-8 — flexible, lightweight and loaded with new technology — while isolating the listener and reducing ambient noise as no sound escapes the earcups. The EL-8 closed-back is also sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and smartphones, but an external amplifier produces better results. They're built with superb craftsmanship, wood veneer accents and enormous attention to detail.
We stock the Audeze manufactured EL-8 Pono Player cable, a 2M cable which will connect the pono player in balanced mode to the EL-8.
