The Audeze EL-8 Titanium are well made headphones that certainly make their mark as a more premium offering in the Lightning headphone market.However, when they fall short in the levels of detail, subtlety and dynamics that we’d expect at this price, they become really hard to recommend.That’s only...

Audeze is an American headphone company with an impressive history of technical innovation. Recently, we were impressed by their entry-level Sine, which packed planar magnetic drivers into a classy, portable package and made us feel a little more confident about a future without headphone jacks.…

I've wanted to try these for a while and was looking for a new set of headphones to be my new favorite. The sound is fantastic although I can't necessarily explain why. My previous favorites were my Sennheiser HD600s and I could listen to them for hours without any fatigue or discomfort.

These are really amazing sounding headphones and the Cipher cable works great. I bought the travel case direct from Audeze since it isn't sold here on this site. Good stuff.

Audeze EL-8 Titanium takes portable audio to a totally different level. There are a variety of good headphones on the market, ready for iPhone. I've tried some of them, and there are some good products out there, but they are absolutely no match with the EL-8.

Pros: The sound quality of these headphones is top-notch, which one would expect for the price. Music is incredibly clear, and there is great sub-bass and mid-bass with the Cipher cable. The DAC/amplifier in the Cipher cable is incredible for the size of the device.

The EL8 Titanium uniquely feature the lightning cable with integrated amplifier and digital signal processing. While the standard EL8 does work off portable devices, I wouldn't say it can show its full potential though.

I was really looking forward to enjoying these cans after experiencing LCD-3 in the past. To my dismay, the lightning port design was finicky. On most occasions, it would pop out "unsupported accessory" message when I inserted it into the lightning port and had to reinsert it to make it work.

I have had the opportunity to purchase these headphones as my first pair of planar magnetic headphones. They come with the lighting cable and also a 3.5mm plug. I thought that I would have wanted the open back version of the EL-8's however I jumped on the option for the titanium closed since it came...

I've finally had enough time with these to make a sound decision. At $800+ I had the initial sticker shock and wasn't completely convinced I'd end up keeping them. I'm DEFINITELY KEEPING THEM. These are hands down the greatest sound out of the iPhone up to date. Period.

Ordered a pair as soon as they were released and was excited to pick them up from a local Apple Store. Listened to them briefly. Great range and soundstage. Suprisingly bass-heavy but with some distortion. I may have been able to to flatten this with the Audeze app and better, lossless source files.
