Audeze iSINE Earphones Use Planar Magnetic Technology

Audeze iSINE10 In-ear headphones on man

Audeze today announced three leading-edge earphones (iSINE 10, iSINE 20, and LCD i3) that use planar magnetic technology, which is normally found in large headphones and lauded by audiophiles. Each in-ear headphone incorporates all the technology of the company’s own audiophile-grade LCD Collection, including patented Fluxor magnets, ultra-thin diaphragms and patented Uniforce voice-coil technology. The three new models range in price from just $399 to $2,495. All models include Audeze’s Lightning cable for Apple’s iPhone/iPod/iPad.

As one of the first in-ear planar magnetic headphones, the iSINE Series raises the bar for audiophile sound quality with lower distortion, superior bass response (flat to 10Hz!), and a wider soundstage than any other in-ear in its price category. Designed and assembled at Audeze’s California factory, they worked closely with strategic partner Designworks, a BMW Group Company.

Every part of the iSINE is designed to bring our world-renowned Audeze sound to a global market in a smaller, lighter package. Perfect for all portable devices, the $399 iSINE 10 is easy to drive with an impedance of 16 ohms. It includes both a Lightning cable and a premium analog audio cable with 3.5mm stereo plug. The $599 iSINE 20 features a longer voice coil and at 24 ohms impedance, along with other improvements, delivers higher resolution and more detail than the iSINE 10. The $2,495 LCD i3 features the same nano-grade film as Audeze’s $4000 LCD-4 headphone along with other premium materials.

The iSINE 20 is one step up from the iSINE 10 featuring a longer Uniforce voice-coil that covers the ultra-thin diaphragm to a greater extend. That delivers better control and responsiveness with zero distortion for better bass, clarity, and improved imaging. Add the included Lightning cable with DSP and customize your sound. To ensure all-day comfort a pair of Ear Hooks and EarLocks are provided along with silicon and foam tips.

All three models include Audeze’s Apple MFI-certified CIPHER Lightning cable that takes digital audio directly from your iOS device and uses its own built-in DAC and amplifier for superior audio and improved voice call quality.

“It’s an avant-garde design without a care for the status quo, these in-ear planar magnetic headphones rewrite the rules in every respect. We’re really proud of this groundbreaking work, another example of how we push headphone innovation to the limit,” said CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram.
