Onboard amplification for impressive accuracy

Remember when studio monitor speakers were passive? No great loss. Active speakers have done wonders for monitoring accuracy. And so it is with Blue Ella headphones. With a 250mW audiophile-quality onboard amplifier and perfectly-matched precision drivers, these headphones deliver output that's stunningly true to their input. Get ready for studio-grade sound — even on your mobile devices.

Planar magnetic drivers supply the ultimate in audiophile sound quality

There's a reason why planar magnetic headphones are coveted by audiophiles. Their accuracy is unparalleled, and their low-distortion performance provides you with unmatched clarity. But what are planar magnetic drivers? Planar magnetic drivers employ a magnetic field that surrounds electrically charged conductors to drive their diaphragm. The conductors are bathed in an isodynamic magnetic field, thanks to a formation of magnets placed around it. When current passes through the conductors, the resultant magnetic field interacts with the isodynamic field causing the diaphragm to move. Because the force applied to the diaphragm via the isodynamic field is evenly distributed, very little harmonic distortion is generated. At Sweetwater, we thoroughly enjoy listening through Blue Ella headphones. Outside of a studio setting, it's hard to imagine a more accurate way to enjoy your favorite music.

Ergonomic fit gives you cushy comfort

When you first try Ella headphones on for the first time, you'll be thrilled that Blue paid just as much attention to their physical design as their audio quality. From their innovative multi-jointed design, to earcups shaped like — well, ears, Blue has thoroughly reimagined headphone form factor and functionality. Blue fitted these headphones with a multi-jointed headband, earcups that ergonomically float into place, and an adjustable tension knob for a personalized fit.

Blue Ella are amazing

Sound great. I have a pair of AKG 712, which I use to pc game. I think they sound great and the Blue Ellas blow them away. Directional sound is excellent even though these are closed back. They are comfortable on my head too. Happy they came with two cables, because I can leave one plugged into my sound card and use the other in bed if I'm watching netflix on my laptop. The on board amp is great if you have no headphone, but I leave it off when going through my sound card amp. When watching movies on the laptop or listening to music I set the headphone amp to the first bass setting and it gives the sound the perfect amount of punch.
4.5/5

Well Balanced but slightly tame.

I previously owned the original "Mo-Fis" and found them good sounding, tho uncomfortable. With the release of the Ella Planar's, Blue has created a much more comfortable headphone, tho you are not going to forget they are on your head. The Ella's take just over 3 hrs to fully charge using the supplied cable. SOUND:.. As compared to HiFi Man's 560s and Planar's in general the Ella's are very slightly rolled off in the High End (using the amp setting)....They are however much more balanced then the HE560s and the incredible width of their soundstage is comparable to any open back in this price range. This is indeed their best feature along with a fine midrange presentation. The depth of the soundstage is really really good tho its somewhat lacking that certain 3D quality that audiophiles crave. Will this improve as they burn in?.... I cant tell you, as mine are new. Blue has certainly captured within the Ella's tonality, a very good sound quality. Instrument separation is excellent and the bass response is ever so slightly refined in the preferred "amp on" setting, but overall it extends decently. The mids are where this headphone shines as they are lush and detailed bringing the Audeze sound to mind. Treble wise, there is no sizzle, none... The Ellas are dead quiet between tracks, however there is no extra high end detail found as i previously stated, as these headphones are certainly engineered and geared towards accuracy and balance.. = You wont find a "V" shape here. So, if bright sounding and "V" shaped is your need, then look elsewhere as the Ella's wont take you there. Blue's Ella's are absolutely designed for long listening sessions. They play well with Acoustic music, Classical, Rock, Choral, Dance, you name it, and should definitely be included on your short list if you have the available Shekels and are currently looking for fine sounding headphones to mix and master your tunes, especially if you are looking for clean detailed midrange presentation that is relatively comparable to listening to good studio monitors- speakers...which i believe Blue has highlighted and hyped regarding their description of these phones. In my opinion, when taking into account that Blue's Box that delivers these suggests an unfortunate "cheap" presentation, (these really do deserve a nice box), and the fact that the body-housing of the Headphones is mostly plasticy, i feel they are a bit over priced @ $700 USD, but at $599, they would be a superb deal.
