Conclusion :
Creating from a single design a closed-back and an open-back headphone that sound identical in both versions is a difficult feat I have yet to hear accomplished. While the two Audeze EL-8 headphones are sonically similar, those differences in sound are sufficiently profound that most listeners will very likely have a preference based on their own tastes and program choices. And while neither EL-8 will completely satisfy an Audeze LCD owner looking for the perfect portable LCD surrogate, both do capture much of the speed, immediacy, and presence of the Audeze headphone lineup in an easy-to-drive and portable package.
