Audeze Introduces World’s First Headphones With Fully Integrated Apple Lightning Cable

High-end headphones manufacturer Audeze introduces the EL-8 Titanium headphones, the company's first Apple MFi certified product. The EL-8 Titanium headphones provide Apple users with true high resolution uncompromised audio – not just for music playback, but for voice calls as well. The Titanium EL-8 feature the same iconic industrial design by BMW DesignWorksUSA. 

The EL-8 Titanium headphones come with an exclusive lightning cable that streams a complete 24-bit digital signal through a high quality DSP and DAC to offer better sound quality. The built in microphone can be used for phone calls and is SIRI compatible. An accompanying Audeze app can be used to apply EQ and sound presets. For non- Apple device compatibility, the headphones also include a standard analog cable.
