Audeze was established in 2008 when their founders heard of specialized flexible circuit materials that were made for NASA. They quickly realized the potential of this material for headphone development and welcomed another team member with 30+ years’ experience in designing planar drivers to create the first LCD-1 headphone.
Audeze then created the legendary LCD-2 and LCD-3 headphones, and the higher-efficiency LCD-X and XC models. Fortunately, they recently made the planar magnetic technology accessible to a wider audience with the EL-8, SINE and iSINE series headphones.
Audeze headphones employ cutting-edge planar magnetic headphone technology with extremely thin-film driver materials and powerful custom magnets for more accurate, high-quality audiophile sound. Their lightweight diaphragms are faster and more responsive than heavier moving-coil or dome drivers. This technology enables you to connect with your favorite artists as if you were right there.
