Audeze Advances: El-8 Headphones For High-Quality Entertainment

Already known for making some of the highest-quality headphones on the market, Audeze has recently made an effort to extend high-quality sounds to consumers with more limited budgets. Its new EL-8 headphones do just this, offering one of the most cost effective sources of premium sound quality. Their features include:

  • Fluxor Magnets- A new technology designed specifically for Audeze's headphones, Fluxor Uniforce magnets divert more power to the side of the headphones facing the driver, streamlining the headphones' power system.
  • Comprehensive Padding- The headphones have thick, absorbent padding around the ears and up top, allowing you to listen in comfort for hours.
  • Wooden Veneer- These headphones combine black pads and support structure with a light wooden veneer, giving a more varied appearance than other models.
  • High Sensitivity- EL-8s play high-quality music from a wide variety of sources, including smartphones and portable music devices. This sets them apart from most other planar headphones, which require an external amplifier to play at high quality.
  • Power Use- EL-8s are designed to handle power more efficiently, meaning raising the volume won't sacrifice sound quality.

Consumers praise EL-8 headphones for their accurate, dynamic sounds, good resolution, and stylish design. They are particularly good at capturing bass sounds, doing so more precisely than other headphones.

Open Back or Closed?

To accommodate different listening preferences, Audeze has created both open back and closed back headphones. Closed back units are designed for use in public spaces. They block out most ambient sound, allowing you to focus on your music in even the noisiest areas.  They also prevent your music from leaking out to the general public, meaning that you can listen to the loudest sounds in public without disturbing others.

Whereas closed back units are designed for public spaces, open backed ones are ideal for use at home or in private spaces. Partial openings in the sides of the headphones allow ambient noises in and your music out, causing the two sounds to mix together as they would during a live performance. Many listeners believe that this produces a better listening experience, though it also makes this model of headphones infeasible in public places.

Cable Concerns

Headphone cables are frequently subject to tangling, causing them to break or pull the headphones off your head if you don't realize they're tangled before trying to move. To fix this problem, Audeze creating gold-plated cable connectors for its EL-8 headphones, designing them to break off with as little resistance as possible. Audeze offers three separate cables for different kinds of players:

  • A non-microphonic cable for high resolution players, such as PonoPlayer, and Sony PHA-3
  • A microphonic cable for Apple iOS devices, complete with an in-line remote
  • A non-microphonic cable to use with Astell & Kern players

Audeze never stops innovating, and Audio Den always stays up-to-date stocking the best headphones, players, and other devices. For more on entertainment technology, automation, energy management, and other ways to upgrade your home, visit our website today.

Outdoor Audio Brings High Quality Audio to Summer Fun

Outdoor Home Theater and Outdoor Audio Systems Bring Movies and Music to NY Homes

Outdoor Audio Brings High Quality Audio to Summer Fun

Transform the outdoor living space of your Long Island home into an entertainment lounge with pool speakers, deck speakers or even an outdoor home theater system. Outdoor audio and entertainment systems are the ideal ways to bring the tunes outdoors or lounge outdoors in your Hamptons home while catching your favorite TV show or taking in a classic movie. These additions to your home also add value. Many homebuyers are willing to pay a premium for home that is equipped for outdoor entertainment.

With deck, patio and pool speakers, Long Island homeowners can set the perfect scene for dinner under the stars or kick back and relax while listening to their favorite playlist. Take outdoor living to a whole new level of enjoyment with outdoor audio from Audio Den. We’re Long Island’s premier audio, video, automation and home theater specialist.

At Audio Den, we plan the placement of deck, patio and pool speakers carefully. For example, if there’s a wall, we place the speakers on the wall facing the home or underneath the eaves. This way, the sound is focused toward the outdoor living area. For larger yards, the speakers can be placed decoratively in a circle pointing toward the outdoor living space or discretly in landscaping around a pool or spa. Subwoofers can also be partly buried in the ground. All around, we arrange the outdoor speakers in a manner that adds to the aesthetics of the outdoor space. Plus, we install outdoor speakers for reputable brands such as Paradigm outdoor speakers, which are specifically designed to withstand temperature and weather extremes.

We can also set up multiple audio zones for outdoor spaces. With this flexibility, kids can swim in the pool with louder volumes while those dining outdoors can turn the volume down to conversational levels. Multiple audio zones allow you to control the volume and source independently. It’s a win-win for everyone outdoors and the key to summer fun.

Never miss a ballgame or your favorite TV show with an outdoor entertainment system. We install Sunbrite and Seura outdoor TVs that are built to withstand the elements, such as sea breezes to Hamptons homes, rain and snow. Even with high humidity from salty ocean air, these outdoor TVs are completely weather resistant. These outdoor TVs can be put on full articulating mounts to avoid the sun and positioned so the screen is viewable from multiple locations in the backyard. Totally adjustable, you can view a TV show from any location. Just keep in mind that screen size is a factor with outdoor TVs. Anything smaller than a 46-inch TV is likely too small, unless you’re sure that viewers will always be close to the screen. We also can add external speakers for the TV audio. This way, if you’re throwing a pool party during a major sports game, you can play the games feed on speakers throughout the yard.

With outdoor speakers and entertainment systems, you can turn your outdoor living space into a social summer retreat.
