Audeze, the company whose biggest claim to fame is being one of biggest headphone companies high-end to offer planar magnetic technology, not just in over-ear form but in in-ear form as well.
While we’ve been fascinated by previous offerings from Audeze, specifically the Audeze Sines, which are some of the most impressive and stylish lightning-capable headphones on the market.
Audeze has announced a brand new, more affordable in-ear planar magnetic earphone called the iSINE LX. This announcement coincides with the headphones release at CES 2018.
We’d love to get our hands on a pair of these!
Begin Audeze iSINE LX Press Overview:
Audeze, a global leader in best-in-class premium audio, is proud to announce the newest addition to their critically acclaimed iSINE series of in-ear headphones, the iSINE LX. Audeze will showcase the iSINE LX during CES 2018 at the Hi-Res Audio Pavilion in the LVCC Central Hall (Booth #14735).
The iSINE series of in-ear headphones, the choice for artists and audiophiles worldwide, combines innovative technology and avant-garde design to deliver an immersive, dynamic music experience unlike any other in-ear. The iSINE LX shares the same engineering DNA as the rave iSINE10 and iSINE20, but features a bold new, modern look and the amazing price of $199.
“The iSINE LX is the first Audeze headphone to utilize our newly developed automated driver-manufacturing process at our California facility. The launch of the iSINE LX demonstrates our ongoing commitment for continued product and manufacturing process innovation allowing us to manufacture our headphones in the United States,” said CEO Sankar Thiagasamudram.
Miniaturizing Planar drivers is no small feat.
The new iSINE LX contains all of Audeze’s exclusive patented technology including power enhancing Fluxor™ Magnets and ultra-thin diaphragms with patented Uniforce™ voice-coil technology. The iSINE LX delivers astonishingly clear, accurate, and spacious sound with spectacular bass. The distortion (THD) is less than 0.1% overall even at high volumes, an amazing achievement for in-ear headphone designs. Near zero distortion sound means you’ll feel closer to your music.
Additionally, the iSINE LX are the latest Audeze headphones that work with REVEAL, a set of free plug-ins (available for free download at Audeze.com) that can be used for mixing and mastering on the go. REVEAL is compatible with most popular digital audio workstations (DAWs) and is now available in VST/AU/AAX formats for PC and Mac.
The $199 iSINE LX, sold exclusively in USA, comes with a standard 1.5m audio cable. For an additional $60, customers can add the optional CIPHER™ Lightning cable that connects the headphone to an iPhone via the Lightning port. This award-winning cable takes digital audio directly from the Apple device and uses its own built-in DAC and amplifier for superior audio quality — even voice call quality is improved.
The company’s most affordable headphone is now available to purchase online at Audeze.com. It will also be available at Amazon.com. To learn more, please visit our CES booth #14735 or https://www.audeze.com/products/isine-series/isine-lx-ear-headphone.
