Apple sells Audeze EL-8 Titanium headphones that cost more than the iPhone
While rumors about the forthcoming iPhone ditching headphone jack for a smaller form factor are only vague, Apple is making fanboys believe there could be a good chance of it being true by selling super expensive Audeze EL-8 Titanium headphones that use iPhone’s Lightning connector for audio purpose. The headphones, closed back variant of the open back EL-8 launched at the CES 2015 in January, cost $799.95. Apple is selling EL-8 Titanium headphones online at Apple Store and at select Apple stores in the US and Canada.
Excitingly, the headphones offer a completely integrated Lightning connector for the iPhone. The headphone cable comes built-in with an amplifier, a digital to analog converter (DAC) and digital signal processor and it’s called the Cypher cable. The cable ensures the headphones are well powered so that there is no compromise in the sound quality.
Compatible with Apple’s Lightning connector, the EL-8 Titanium headphones also come with a traditional 3.5mm jack. The headphones feature in-line microphone and remote control; using the headphone thus you can carry out phone calls or even send voice commands to Siri.
