my personal past experience with their b-stock is that many of them look or feel like new.

The build quality on this is fantastic, you feel like you're getting your money's worth from that alone. It's like a fine watch. The sound quality with lossless files is absolutely amazing due to their transparency, but the EL-8 isn't Audeze's best-sounding headphone and the frequency response is a bit lacking. You'd be better off pairing this with a capable amp instead of using the Cipher. For $249 you can't go wrong if you're an audiophile that's into high-end gear.

It's absolutely great quality. Solid. However, do some searching on the left side cable randomly falling out. I heard about it before I got mine. And yep, same thing happened to me. Very irritating. It's like it has a mind of its own.

This is 1 of the best headphones I have got. These are almost as good as LCD-2 but little less on Bass side. I have sold my Mobius since these sounded better than them (Yeah I know Mobius are wireless W1 chip, surround sound etc). These are best bang for the buck in Audiophile world.

I'm looking for a nice headphones 🎧 for iPhone 📱
These are wired headphones. But these will come with Cipher cable for iPhone/ iPad with inbuilt DAC(Audeze used to sell this cable alone for 100$).

Much better bang for the buck than the other Elegia deal from Adorama. Although I suspect the Elegia's might be the better set overall

Had this. Returned. Overall built and sound, it's not a $700 cans. @ this price .. it's okay.

I read in some reviews that these get very uncomfortable after a while.

How about this compared to the Sennheiser Pink Floyd headphones? I still haven't received those but I missed the coupon making them $160. Instead I ordered those for $200. Which would be better?
