EJ Jordan Designs was established in 1976 to design and manufacture unique, high-fidelity loudspeakers. We have been bringing natural sound to music lovers around the world for over 40 years.
Our company founder, EJ ‘Ted’ Jordan, pioneered the use of full-range, alloy-cone loudspeakers in the 1960s following his extensive research at Goodmans Industries and later work with Jordan-Watts. Ted’s designs are renowned world-wide for refined engineering and musicality, the result of his deep understanding of the underlying acoustic principles.
We continue to research and develop loudspeakers based on Ted’s concepts to provide unparalleled instruments of music.
Jordan Eikona full-range loudspeaker
The story continues with the Jordan Eikona 2 loudspeaker unit. This sophisticated, single-cone driver is capable of presenting music with a level of focus and coherence that is unobtainable with multi-way speaker systems. It achieves this without the complication of crossovers, tweeters or hi-fi artifice.
The Eikona 2 is available for hi-fi enthusiasts to build into their own loudspeaker enclosures and we have a number of plans available on our website. It also makes an ideal building block for manufacturers to incorporate into high-end commercial loudspeaker systems.
Jordan Aurora Loudspeakers
Ted Jordan went on to design a radically new type of loudspeaker system around the Eikona 2. The Aurora is a visually elegant, wall-mounted speaker with a reflector which excels at bringing the concert hall into the home with all the warmth and ambience of the live event.
All our products are available direct from us or from a carefully-selection range of resellers. We sell world-wide and music of all types is enjoyed on Jordan loudspeakers around the globe.
Eikona TL Array loudspeaker
Our latest loudspeaker design is a floor-standing transmission line capable of handling the full scale and majesty of orchestral music. An array of four Eikonas enables it to handle power amplifiers from 5 to 200 watts and produce bass to below 30 Hz.
Eikona TL Array listener review:
“The level of detail is incredible, you can hear everything recorded, separated but integrated, set in its exact position. The bass is beautifully tight and drums…The soundstage is huge and has real depth and height.”
We’re sorry to announce that our USA reseller, Ars Harmonia, is closing on 20 February. The owner, Bruce Pea, has been a long-standing supporter of and enthusiast for Ted Jordan’s loudspeaker. Bruce’s own speaker, the Taliesin, featured the Eikona drive unit so it was only natural to ask him to work with us to supply our US customers.
Bruce is retiring from the business and we wish him and his wife happy travels in the coming years. US customers can order direct from us and we continue to ship Eikonas worldwide.
Eikona SL loudspeaker
This is a new loudspeaker enclosure for the Eikona which is compact, easy-to-build and available in two different configurations. The plans are available to download now and you can read about it on our blog.
SL customer review:
“I went through my usual list of test tracks and to be honest I was gobsmacked! OK, they don’t have the weight in the bass of the Eikona TL’s nor the effortless dynamics, push the little SL’s hard and they’ll get a little ragged. At sensible – quite loud – levels tracks like Massive Attack’s Angel sound excellent while gentler stuff like Emiliana Torrini’s Fisherman’s Woman LP sounds quite sublime. If anything, imaging from the SL’s is a bit better than the 4 driver TL’s and the soundstage is ridiculously big for such small speakers with bags of width and depth … My room is a reasonable size (a bit over 21x14ft) and the SL’s have no problem filling it with excellent music. Bass is better than good for the size, imaging and soundstage is superb and tonally they are as sweet as a nut … you should be very proud of this design”

Recent testimonials for EJ Jordan loudspeakers:
“I fired up the Eikona’s this evening, and played a variety of my my favourite songs. Started low for some time then gradually increased volume to low/ moderate after an hour or so on my 20 watt amp. With the premium price, and all the great reviews from around the world, I expected the moon and the stars. And I wasn’t disappointed. Many thanks to you and your team. And thanks to Mr Jordan.”
“Today was a revelation! I got to hear two absolutely beautiful valve amps, through a pair of magnificent speakers! My ears have never been treated to such exotic beasts. The new Jordan TL linear array is outstanding, beautifully crafted, with a sound to make a grown man very emotional. It’s difficult to express how wonderful they are, and how involving the sound is – I sat mesmerised!”
“I wish I would have ordered these sooner. This driver is really something special. In my opinion, it’s better than the Scanspeak Revelator. The bass is just as deep and strong yet cleaner and much better defined, the midrange is clearer and more natural. I was also very impressed with the high end, open, clean and detailed. This is a very balanced sounding driver. I’ve got to tell you, I’m floored, I certainly didn’t expect the sound quality that I’m getting, especially straight out of the box.”
“I was hesitant to try the Eikonas because of their cost … [but] I can say that I’m not disappointed I took the leap. In my opinion, the Eikonas are worth every penny and they are nothing short of amazing! … In general the Eikonas have a fullness to them and a more relaxed and smooth feel… they are extremely detailed and image well. The soundstage is huge and the music has depth to it.”
