AUDEZE EL8 Open Back Over-Ear Headphones

The open-back EL-8 offers all the benefits of the closed-back EL-8, flexible, lightweight and loaded with new technology while isolating the listener and reducing ambient noise as no sound escapes the earcups. The EL-8 open-back is also sensitive enough to be driven directly by portable players and smartphones, but an external amplifier produces better results.
