SINE headphones, with Audeze's planar magnetic technology, are the next step up in sound quality for many listeners. Instead of using ordinary dynamic drivers, Their planar technology gives you a sound that’s punchy, dynamic, and detailed.
The 80 x 70mm planar magnetic driver has more than 3x the surface area of any on-ear headphone in its class. More surface area means more air can be moved, which means better bass and dynamics.
"U.S. headphone maker Audeze has captured the interest of audiophiles and music industry professional around the world."

Audeze Planar Magnetic Technology
Unlike conventional headphones we use planar magnetic technology, a dramatic departure from traditional dynamic driver designs. Most headphones use traditional cone drivers but Audeze features proprietary planar magnetic technology employing ultra-thin-film driver materials and powerful magnets. Planars overcome many limitations inherent in typical cone drivers; Their planar diaphragms are, for example, faster and more responsive than heavier moving-coil or dome drivers.
Audeze drivers are 100mm+ in diameter, 4x the size of most conventional headphones, resulting in incredible and accurate bass response delivering a palpable quality that’s lacking in other headphones. The planar magnetic transducer, the heart of Audeze designs, has significant advantages over dynamic drivers. The flat, ultra-thin membranes – the diaphragms – create their enveloping acoustic due to the lowest THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) of any headphone available. The matched drivers (within +/-1dB) and fast response time offer stunning dynamics and very real imaging on a wide, airy soundstage.
The voice-coil circuit is spread out across the diaphragm so it dissipates heat generated by the current passing through it very efficiently. Planar magnetic transducers have few moving parts and maintain their performance without degradation.
FLUXOR™ MAGNET ARRAYS
With new, patent-pending Fluxor Magnetic technology introduced in the EL-8, Audeze delivers nearly double the magnetic flux density of the highest-grade neodymium magnetic circuits that perfectly control the planar diaphragm. This remarkable achievement results in in superior sound, reduced weight and far greater efficiency to play well with mobile devices.
Patent-pending Fazor technology, introduced in the LCD Collection and featured in the EL-8, are special acoustical elements positioned on either side of the magnetic arrays that enhance transparency by influencing sound waves generated by Audeze’s large planar diaphragms. The result is improved high-frequency extension, better phase response (for better imaging), and again, lower distortion.
The patent-pending Uniforce diaphragm employs an industry first; variable trace widths on the voice-coil that effectively captures variations in the magnetic field in the magnetic gaps creating a uniform driving force across the diaphragm’s surface. What this means for you is dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
