In 2016, the Lightning Extender Dock is set to launch, and will undoubtedly fly off the shelves with in record time. Audeze’s EL-8 Titanium Closed-Back Headphones are priced at $799.95, and are currently being marketed as the world’s first headphones to include a fully integrated Apple Lightning cable. The headphones are designed with a state-of-the-art amplifier and a 28-bit DAC that is built directly into the Lightning cable. While this is definitely an impressive product, the market may not be affected that much, as many Lightning Extender users already own Bluetooth devices and speakers. The lighting port connected to a pair of headphones was once a dream and is now becoming a reality, but the device is not a Beats product.
According to Audeze, the devices are compatible with a multitude of headphone amps and portable music players. The device features an impedance of 30 ohms, and boasts an SPL of 130db. The device also features a wide frequency response of 10Hz to 50 kHz, with less than 0.1 percent of complete harmonic distortion, which ensures that users will be completely satisfied with this product.
Additional upgrades include a higher battery life, while the Lightning Adapter also features an 8-megapixel rear camera for excellent photo quality. It has been reported that the port will be removed from the iPhone7, however, with all the new additions and compatibility with other products, users surely will not be disappointed.
