Audeze’s story begins when the founders of Audeze met an ex-NASA scientist who had developed a new, flexible circuit material for spacecrafts, and they realized it could become one of the greatest breakthroughs in headphone design. Being incredibly thin, remarkably strong, and surprisingly agile, the material was perfect for use as a diaphragm in planar magnetic headphones. And from there, Audeze was born. Audeze’s headphones are well known for their fast impulse response, low distortion, wide frequency response, and how the drivers are matched in each pair of headphones. The end result is an audiophile-grade experience that rivals some of the best stereo systems in the world.
