Experience detailed, maximum-impact sound
Ella is the only headphone that combines the transparent detail of planar magnetic drivers with the impact of dynamic technology to deliver awe-inspiring sound quality and intense emotion. Ella maximizes the sound of your music using advanced planar magnetic drivers, a built-in audiophile amplifier and large, high-capacity cabinets. And the revolutionary ergonomic fit ensures optimal sound isolation and comfort for the most immersive listening experiences. Whether you’re enjoying the Zeppelin reissue box sets, Pink Floyd on 180-gram vinyl, Radiohead collector’s edition remasters or Neil Young on high-resolution digital, Ella’s radical headphone design reveals new detail in songs you’ve heard a thousand times.
The Planar Magnetic Headphone with a Twist: Superior sound, planar and simple
Our planar magnetic technology provides the perfect artisanal blend of accuracy and impact. Ella’s 50mm x 50mm drivers feature a planar membrane that’s less than 50 microns thin and self-tensioned for fast response and extreme accuracy. The massive driver enclosures are fashioned after high-end speaker cabinets to deliver a rich, extended soundstage. And to ensure the highest quality standards, Ella is handmade in small quantities by expert craftsmen.
Built-In Audiophile AMP - Let the power go to your head
Ella is the first headphone to offer planar magnetic sound quality with the convenience of a built-in 250mW audiophile amp. The amp pairs beautifully with our custom matched drivers to deliver unprecedented headroom and clarity on your phone, laptop or tablet. Plus, Ella lets you personalize your listening experience with three all-analog amp modes—including one that restores the low-end character to vinyl-era music.
The better the fit, the better the sound
With Ella, we threw away the rulebook and completely reimagined what headphones should look and sound like. Everything from the multi-jointed design to the earcups delivers revolutionary form and functionality. You’ll feel—and hear—the difference instantly.
Reinvented headband construction
Ella’s unique multi-jointed headband was inspired by the finely tuned suspension of Formula One racecars. This innovative design creates a perfect seal around your ear, resulting in powerful bass response, improved isolation and reduced sound bleed.
Intelligent Power Management
With a smart design that saves big on battery life, Ella is always ready to play. The battery charges completely in 3-4 hours, and delivers approximately 12 hours of life-changing playtime. And when you’re not listening, Ella automatically powers down to save juice.
