*Please note, this product is currently only on permanent demo in the following stores (but available in all stores via appointment) Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Chelsea, Cheltenham, Chiswick, Eton, Exeter, Glasgow, Holborn, Leeds, London City, Newcastle, Nottingham, Plymouth, Reading, Reigate, Solihull, Southampton, Stockport and Watford. For best results, please 'run in' these headphones for between 50 - 75 hours. The sound should improve markedly after this.


First-rate sound quality with the ability to be powered by your portable device - the Audeze EL-8 Closed-back headphones offer the ultimate sound at home or on the move.

Powerful sound quality

Using a powerful Fluxor magnetic structure and Uniforce speaker diaphragms, the Audeze EL-8 headphones deliver a highly controlled and dynamic sound. Whether you're listening to the grandest orchestras or the most intense rock, the EL8 headphones create a sense of truly 'being there'.

Work with iPhone or portable
Although you'll get by far the best results by using a dedicated headphone amplifier, the EL8's are sensitive enough to be run from your portable device. They'll probably use up your player's battery faster than lesser headphones, but you'll still enjoy the immense dynamic range and realism that smaller headphones can't hope to match.

Closed back version
This version of the EL-8 headphones features a closed back. This has two benefits. The first is that sound from the outside is effectively blocked, so less likely to disturb your listening enjoyment. Secondly, noise created by the headphones is less likely to leak out and disturb others in the vicinity.

Made from the finest materials
As well as the superb sound, it's easy to see where your money goes with these headphones. Supple leather ear pads remain comfortable for hours on end and feel luxurious next to your skin. The solid casing use wood accents for a classy and distinguished style.

For a no-compromise closed-back headphone, the Audeze EL-8's simply must be heard

We'll happily come to you!
