What is it?
The choice for artists and audiophiles worldwide, the iSINE series delivers studio-grade sound quality astonishingly clear, accurate, and spacious sound with virtually zero distortion. With our 30mm planar magnetic drivers, Fluxor™ magnet arrays, and Uniforce™ voice coils, these award-winning headphones guarantee a listening experience unlike anything you’ve ever heard from an in-ear.
The iSINE 20 is one step up from the iSINE 10, featuring an even longer Uniforce™ voice-coil that yields improved bass, clarity, and imaging. Zero distortion sound means you’ll feel closer to your music. Add the CIPHER Lightning cable with built-in amplifier and DSP and there’s no other in-ear headphone that even comes close to its performance.
If you want soundstage — the sensation of music and sound surrounding you; the feeling of distance, depth, and separation between the various instruments and sound sources — the iSINE20s have it in abundance. They’re capable of incredible subtlety, projecting sounds so quiet and far away as to make me question where they were coming from. And these headphones are just as spectacular at high volume levels, where every note is full, convincing, and distortion-free. Their sound is faultless.
How does it work?
The superiority of Planar Magnetic drivers: Unlike conventional headphones, Audeze’s planar drivers use a very, very thin film (much thinner than Saran Wrap for example) to move the air that produces sound. Because this material has such low mass compared to conventional headphone drivers, it moves extremely fast, thus giving much better transient response/impulse response. This means percussive sounds like the snare drum, strumming acoustic guitar, popping strings on a bass (and car crashes!), all sound much more accurate and lifelike. Additionally, Audeze headphones’ Step Response test is always positive – just like real world sounds, which is not always true of conventional headphones.
So conventional drivers not only have more moving mass (the cone, the surround, the voice coil, the spider, and the glue holding everything together), they also have more distortion than Audeze’s planar drivers. In fact, our drivers may have as little as 1/10 the distortion of other headphones. All of this means more accurate, and therefore, more realistic sound.
Superior Bass Extension: Our Fluxor™ magnets produce an incredible amount of driving force, rendering frequencies from 10Hz to 50kHz with guttural impact and pinpoint accuracy.
Low Distortion: Our Uniforce™ voice coil technology minimizes distortion even at high volumes, delivering unprecedented audio clarity.
Award-Winning Planar Technology: The iSINEs combine our flagship LCD planar technology and the best in industrial design to create comfortable listening experience that sounds as real and spacious as a live performance.
