Audeze crammed audiophile tech inside its in-ear headphones
Audeze knows a thing or two about planar magnetic headphones and the company is taking on a new form factor with its latest release. The iSine 10 and iSine 20 are the company's first in-ear headphones that employ the aforementioned audio technology. In fact, Audeze says that these audiophile earbuds are the first to offer planar magnetic tech in this style. If you're not familiar with the term "planar magnetic," here's a brief overview. It's a method for constructing headphones that uses a thin diaphragm and magnets rather than typical cone drivers. It allows for a wider range of sound with less distortion and more bass response -- all things audiophiles are looking for when it comes to headphones and other devices. Typically planar magnetic headphones are big and bulky, but Audeze's Sine that was announced at CES offers a more comfy fit without a lot of heft. The Sine also costs $449, significantly less than a lot of planar magnetic sets.
