Headphones With Integrated Apple Lightning Cable Deliver Pure 24-Bit High-Resolution Audio
The world's first headphones with a completely integrated Apple Lightning cable, dubbed Cipher, the astonishing Audeze EL-8 Titanium headphones offer Apple iPhone users unmitigated 24-bit high-resolution audio through a first-rate DSP and inline DAC that provide 24-bit decoding for incredible sound quality. The Cipher cable also includes a headphone amplifier as well as an integrated microphone for phone calls and Siri accessibility – meaning these interactions will have the same clarity as your music. Capitalizing on the advantages of Lightning technology, EL-8 Titanium tout the same renowned sonics as EL-8. These closed-back ‘phones feature a 100mm planar-magnetic driver, Fazor elements, Fluxor magnetic technology, nano-scale diaphragms, and enhanced voice-coil technology. The U.S.A.-made EL-8 Titanium is foldable for easy portability, while its durable industrial design by BMW DesignWorks features sturdy albeit lightweight aluminum construction. Not using an Apple device? No worries. Just swap out Cipher for the included analog cable. Any way you look at it, EL-8 Titanium mark a giant leap in headphone technology and bring greater frequency extension, better imaging, lower distortion, and deeper bass to the music you love. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.
Hear Pure 24-Bit Audio When You Play Music and Make Phone Calls
EL-8 Titanium headphones come with an exclusive lightning cable that streams a complete 24-bit digital signal through a high quality DSP and DAC to offer better sound quality. The built-in microphone can be used for phone calls and is SIRI compatible. An accompanying Audeze app can be used to apply EQ and sound presets. For non- Apple device compatibility, the headphones also include a standard analog cable.
Hear Better Playback on Mobile Devices Via Fluxor Magnetic Technology
Audeze's patent-pending Fluxor magnetic technology delivers nearly double the magnetic flux density of the highest-grade neodymium magnetic circuits available. This remarkable achievement results in reduced weight with greater efficiency to work with mobile devices.
Uniforce Diaphragm Technology Reduces Distortion, Increases Imaging
EL-8' Titanium's patent-pending Uniforce diaphragm employs an industry first: Variable trace widths in the voice coil that effectively capture variations in the magnetic field within the magnetic gaps by equalizing the forces of the individual traces, thus creating a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm surface. This engenders dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution, and improved imaging.
Patent-Pending Fazors Enhance Transparency, Improve Extension
Patent-pending Fazor technology, introduced in the LCD Collection, is also found in EL-8 Titanium. Fazors are special acoustical elements positioned on either side of the magnetic structure. They enhance transparency by affecting the sound waves generated by large planar diaphragms. A few of the sonic benefits include extended frequency response, improved high-frequency extension, lower distortion, and better imaging.
All the Benefits of Open-Back 'Phones
EL-8s constitute a remarkable achievement in engineering, comfort, and style. Designed by BMW DesignWorks USA, EL-8 features all of our technologies including Fluxor magnetics, Uniforce diaphragms, and Fazor elements delivering deep bass, an engaging midrange, and a sweet, detailed top end with no breakup modes. The closed-back model has all the sonic benefits of the open-back model and provides a quiet listening environment, even in noisy areas.
