Announcing The New Audeze EL-8 Headphones!




Hi All,

This is breaking news from CES that is running at the moment in Las Vegas but I thought I would mention it now and update later as more information becomes available.

Today Audeze are due to announce 2 new Planar headphones to join their outstanding LCD lineup of headphones, called the EL-8 headphones they will come in an open and closed back version, will use a new planar technology designed by NASA called Fluxor and have had a helping hand in the look of the headphone by BMW Cars of all people.

Price is to be confirmed but I’m guessing that it will be between £500-£600.

Please find a couple of pictures below and a little blurb taken from Audeze’s Facebook page where the EL-8 has just broken cover -

The EL-8 Open and Closed-Back Headphone features revolutionary Fluxor™ magnetic technology and a Uniforce™ diaphragm material that was originally developed by NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration for lightweight electronics to withstand the rigors of space. Audeze re-engineered this super strong material to work as a planar magnetic driver.

Collaborating with Audeze on the design of the EL-8 was a very rewarding experience for our creative team at BMW Group DesignworksUSA ’ Neil Brooker Global Director, Strategic Partnering and Operations BMW Group DesignworksUSA
