This week’s picture Sunday features the new Audeze iSine 20. To check out recent Picture Sunday Posts click HERE.
Everyone by now has surely heard about the unique looking and sounding Audeze iSine inear monitors. If you haven’t then head over to the Audeze website and read about the world’s first planar magnetic inear headphones. I specifically wrote “inear headphones” as that is exactly what they are: The iSine shouldn’t be looked at as just IEMs, they are more of mini-speakers that are right next to your ear. The canal/sound tube delivers the sound to your ears and in that regard they’re more or less the same as an IEM or CIEM but the sound is so very different.
The iSINE 20 is one step up from the iSINE 10 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 the recorded to your music.
Yes, the iSine is rather large compared to a regular inear monitor, but again, I wouldn’t really call these IEMs. I’d rather look at them as portable Audeze LCD headphones. The iSine were designed by DesignWorksUSA a BMW group company, and I love the way they look. Even more, I absolutely love the way these sound.
The iSine 10 and 20 will soon be reviewed on Headfonia!
