The iSINE20 is one step up from the iSINE10 featuring an even longer Uniforce voice-coil that covers the ultra-thin diaphragm to a greater extent, enabling better control and responsiveness for better bass, clarity, and improved imaging. Zero distortion sound means you’ll feel closer to your music. Add the included Lightning cable with 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.” THE VERGE

The hybrid design produces a soundstage more akin to a holographic projection around your head, as if you’re listening to top-notch speakers in some sort of personalized, augmented reality. There really is nothing quite like the soundstage the iSine 20 create, and it’s a stirring experience right from the start. You’ll almost swear you hear the music echoing around you, while the outside world is filtered stealthily into your custom sonic lair." DIGITAL TRENDS

Simply put, there's nothing else on the market like the Audeze iSINE series. These headphones are truly one-of-a-kind, in basically every way." APPLE INSIDER

"They’re remarkably clear and crisp ... like looking through a window that you’ve just wiped clean for the first time." THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

Audeze iSINE20 Planar Magnetic in-ear Headphones

The superiority of Planar Magnetic drivers

Audeze’s planar drivers use a 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, all sound much more accurate and lifelike. Audeze headphones’ Step Response test is always positive - just like real world sounds, which is not always true of conventional headphones.

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.

ABOUT AUDEZE

Audeze started in 2008 in a garage (of course!) when its founders came across a revolutionary flexible circuit material developed for NASA. Realizing this could be a great advance in planar magnetic technology, they first started to make pro audio PA speakers, but dropped this project and started making headphones – the LCD-1.

Taking this first headphone to the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, it was a tremendous hit, and that success launched the company. Hanging on that garage wall was the 2001 Space Odyssey poster, and that inspired the company’s name. The founders wanted a name that had something to do with a “journey through audio,” so Odyssey would be perfect, and that’s how the name Audeze (pronounced “odyssey”) was born.

AUDEZE'S PLANAR MAGNETIC TECHNOLOGY

Acoustically engineered for accuracy

Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers clear and accurate sound that reveals everything on the recording.

Diaphragms thinner than a human hair

We use space-age materials in an ultra thin diaphragm four times larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.

Near zero distortion

Double-sided magnet arrays delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion.

Fluxor magnets

Our patented Fluxor magnet design has almost 2x the efficiency of other magnets, giving the LCD-i4 more dynamic impact.

GET THE RIGHT FIT

We include a selection of ear hooks and ear tips, allowing you to customize the fit for your personal comfort. Since the tips only need to rest snugly at the entrance to your ear canals, this gives you a much more comfort over long periods.

DISTINCTIVE STYLE

Designed by our partners at BMW DesignWorks, the iSINE20s make a "stand out in the crowd" statement.

MADE IN THE USA

Meticulously engineered and assembled in our California audio lab.

  • HIGH QUALITY SOUND: Exceptional clarity throughout the full frequency range--with deep accurate bass and clean, extended treble. Hear every beat of your music exactly the way your favorite artist played it.
  • MIX MUSIC ANYWHERE: Audiophile-quality headphones that deliver an immersive, dynamic music experience. They take the room out of the equation, allowing you to go from the studio to your living room.
  • SUPERIOR RESOLUTION: Our innovative planar magnetic drivers use NASA technology to provide lower distortion, better bass response, and a wider soundstage than any other in-ear headphone.
  • DISTINCTIVE STYLE: Designed by our partners at Designworks USA, a BMW group subsidiary, the iSINE 20s make a stand out in the crowd statement.
  • BUY WITH CONFIDENCE: Precision engineered with Audeze's award-winning, proprietary technology. All products purchased through Audeze on Amazon receive our standard product care warranty.
