Audeze is one of the most respected headphone makers out there. Recording studios love them, as do audiophiles. The EL-8 is, like all Audeze headphones, a planar magnetic model with high efficiency, styling by BMW’s design crew, and a beautiful, neutral tuning. Mine are the second generation and the closed-back variant, giving great isolation and keeps you from bothering people around you, as well as a bit more low end than the open-back version. That bass is full, deep, and tight; the midrange is sweet and natural, and the treble lets you hear every nuance without ever calling attention to itself. Then there is the spaciousness, the detail. and the sense of being there. Most of all, they make music sound like music. And, unlike many Audeze headphones, they don’t require a powerful headphone amp—they can be driven by an iPhone (but they’ll sound even better with a good amp).There are many rave reviews of these headphones out there, and if you know Audeze, you can expect most of the sound of their very much more expensive ‘phones. The $350 price is firm and is a major bargain for the sound you will get.

Local, in-person deals only.

Thanks for looking.
