The Audeze iSINE 10 certainly looks like no earphones I’ve seen. Imperial fighters, yes. Chances are, they’ll not sound like any other either.
Thanks to an innovative design that does not care for the same old status quo of balanced armature or dynamic driver designs.
The Fluxor Magnets and large 30mm planar magnetic diaphragms promise precise control and fast response times without distortion.
Add the Lightning cable with DSP and Audeze says that there’s no other in-ear headphone that even comes close to its performance.
The iSINE 20 is one step up from the iSINE 10. This model features an even longer Uniforce voice-coil that covers the ultra-thin diaphragm to a greater extent. This should enable better control and responsiveness for better bass, clarity, and improved imaging.
They have miniaturised their planar and the iSINE series weigh barely 20g.
Both the 10 and 20 are hand crafted in Audeze’s California factory. The company have worked with DesignworksUSA, a BMW Group Company, in the design and development of the new IEMs.
