Our earpads aren’t just comfortable and luxurious, but they
also isolate against noise with a tight seal that improves sound quality and
helps supply our famous bass.
Our earpads direct the planar magnetic drivers toward your ears for better
imaging and an improved fit. Audeze tested dozens of earpad angles using
our Neumann Head, a precision device used to measure headphone performance
on a “dummy head,” before finding the ideal slope for great soundstaging and
accurate frequency response.
Inspected by Hand
Our material experts carefully inspect each piece by hand so they can examine
each and every detail. This ensures every earpad is free from scratches,
blemishes, uneven stitches, dots, or deformation common in lesser earpads.
Easy to Install
You can remove your old earpads and install new ones in under five minutes. All
you need is a flathead screwdriver and a sharp blade knife. Detailed
instructions arrive with every pair of earpads.
