I'm pretty sure that 100mm planar drivers are made specifically for the Audeze Mobius and are not taken directly from the existing EL-8. This was covered in the Head-Fi forum which has had a lot of input of info by Audeze. I've been following every crumb very carefully as I'm looking forward for my Indiegogo pre-order to ship soon

There's a shadow of a doubt in that. The magnets, the diaphragm, the configuration, the over all tech around the driver are all the same. They discontinued the EL-8 because they had trouble with hardware failure, but it would be poor business decision to let the technology go to waste. The drivers in Mobius are identical (literally the same) but it's been re-spec'd slightly to have a lesser extension probably to address the issues they had with EL-8 and to adapt to the internal amplification/DAC and the new enclosure. It wouldn't be in their best interest to publicly say its a direct port of the EL-8 driver considering its history. Legally, they can claim it's new since it has been adapted for the Mobius.
I'm looking forward to mine as well. Going to be receiving my pair in a week and a half!

One thing I'm recalling is that they're using the new much, much thinner (but ultra durable) diagram material. The magnets may be the same. Did the EL-8 include the fazors? I also feel like they said something about a new, updated voice coil? It's somewhere the main head-fi thread I believe. It is tuned quite differently, with strong dsp help to sound like something in the LCD series.

A very good headphone under 200$ The package include a short cable for recharge the headphone and a 3.5mm cable, instruction and carrying pouch. Very well designed, solid and similar to msr7. Sounds good and with solid bass, both with cable or bluetooth. Has a lot features and i m worry because i can t buy One for me: i have a msr7se and is a Little Better, expecially with furutech cable. Pads are bigger and solid than msr7 and i think that Is the reason because sr50 has solid bass, a Little + than my msr7se .

About to receive my replacement Focal Elex and worried about quality
My original Elex left driver went out 10 months in. The replacement is soon to be delivered. I'm worried that the same thing will happen to the replacement at some point. I've ordered the upcoming Drop HD-8xx hoping that it will usable for me like the Elex has been. With the Drop HD-8xx the inherent lift in the highs of the HD 800's has been partially dealt with and some lows added. I honestly don't like hyped treble when using headphones. I'm hoping that there is an open back phone that is somewhat linear like the Elex, and has a similar sonic signature. I don't want another headphone from Focal; just can't deal with this again. What non-Focal linear open back headphone easily competes with the Elex?

What to do with one side dead (Focal Elex)?
I have a pair of focal elex headphones. By far one of the best I've had but one side went dead yesterday. Not the cable issue and read that it is common with them. Could you advise what to do? Can it be fixed locally? Given it right be the driver or copper cable inside?

THX AAA 789 Amazing sound
Online reviews spoke highly, but I was suprised by the detail in the sound. I was using a Dac/amp with an msrp of 1400 so I did not expect much. I did notice an immediate clarity improvement. Music, specifically words were no longer blurred.Singers seemed to make more of an effort to enunciate words more. Even using a $100 DAC the sound was top notch. Drop hit a home run with this product.
