Audeze has launched its first in-ear headphones. Incorporating all the technology of the rave-reviewed LCD series, including patented Fluxor magnets and Fazor waveguides, the three new models range in price from only $399 to $2,495. All models include Audeze's award winning Lightning cable for Apple's iPhone/iPod/iPad.
As the first in-ear planar magnetic headphones, they raise the bar for audiophile sound quality with lower distortion, superior bass response (flat to 10Hz!), and a wider soundstage than other in-ear designs. Designed and assembled at Audeze's California factory with industrial style by BMW's DesignWorks, they are individually matched to within ± 1dB.
Perfect for all portable devices, the $399 iSINE 10 model is easy to drive with an impedance of 16 ohms. It includes both the Lightning cable and a standard audio cable with 3.5mm stereo plug. The $599 iSINE 20 has a longer voice coil (24 ohms) and other improvements, offering higher resolution and detail than the iSINE 10. The $2,495 LCD i3 features the finest drivers, utilizing the same nano-grade film as Audeze's $4000 LCD4 headphones, along with premium materials.
All three models include Audeze's Cipher Lightning cable. This award winning Apple MFI certified cable takes digital audio directly from the iOS device and uses its own built-in DAC and amplifier for superior audio quality -- even voice call quality is improved.
"An avant-garde design without a care for the status quo, this innovation rewrites the rules for in-ear earphones. We are really proud of these groundbreaking headphones as we push headphone innovation," said CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram.
