Design

1.has stereo speakers
Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back
Audeze Sine DX
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.has an over-the-ear form
Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back
Audeze Sine DX
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
3.has a detachable cable
Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back
Audeze Sine DX
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
4.weight

480g

290g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
5.can be folded
Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back
Audeze Sine DX
Foldable devices are easier to transport and take up less storage space.
6.has an on-ear form
Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back
Audeze Sine DX
This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.

Sound quality

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

50000Hz

50000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has passive noise reduction
Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back
Audeze Sine DX
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.sound pressure level

100dB/mW

120dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.has a neodymium magnet
Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back
Audeze Sine DX
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
6.impedance

30 Ohms

18 Ohms

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.

Connectivity

1.Can be used wirelessly
Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back
Audeze Sine DX
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
2.has a 3.5mm male connector
Audeze EL-8 Closed-Back
Audeze Sine DX
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
