Audeze SINE planar magnetic headphones outed at CES 2016
Audeze (pronounced odyssey apparently) has announced the launch of its new planar magnetic headphones, the SINE. The company are showcasing its lightest headphones to date at Pepcom’s Digital Experience! on Jan. 5 and throughout the duration of CES 2016 in Las Vegas.
SINE Headphones are the first of the new generation of on-ear planar magnetic headphones on the market.
The lightest Audeze headphones to date, the SINE headphones are said to offer exceptional sound quality and comfort. They fold flat for portability.
The SINE headphones feature Audeze’s Fluxor planar magnetic technology with Fazor Elements and Uniforce Diaphragms to provide a highly efficient yet lightweight headphone, with “very low distortion, good bass, a seductive midrange, crisp extended high frequencies, and excellent imaging”.
Audeze’s fully integrated Apple Lightning cable is also an option for the SINE headphones. The exclusive Lightning cable streams a complete 24-bit digital signal through a high quality DSP and DAC to offer better sound quality directly from the iPhone. The built in microphone can be used for phone calls or Skype and is SIRI compatible.
Keeping with the Audeze aesthetic, the SINE headphones’ transducer technology is coupled with BMW DesignWorks USA’s craftsmanship.
The SINE headphones ($499) will be available for purchase in late January at Audeze.com and select retailers and will begin shipping in February.
