Audeze Sine On-Ear

 

The Audeze Sine On-Ear headphones deliver a bass-forward, but balanced, sound signature via a digital 24-bit Lightning cable.

Powerful, vibrant, balanced audio performance. Stylish, comfortable design. Ships with 24-bit cable that receives digital audio via lightning connection on iOS devices.

Added bass presence and digital signal processing will irk purists. Lightning cable can become loose if not firmly connected to mobile device.

Audeze Sine Standard Audio Cable

 

But what you should know it that what makes this headphone (and the Oppo PM-3 ) special is that -- in a world where most planar magnetic headphones have open-back designs -- the Sine has a closed-back design. In fact, it's one of the few planar...

The swanky, sturdily built Audeze Sine is among the smallest and most affordable headphones to use planar magnetic drivers. It offers very revealing, spacious sound in a closed-back design. For an extra $50, you can get the company's Cipher Lightning...

The headphone's a little heavy -- comfortable, but not extraordinarily so. Included 3.5mm headphone cord doesn't have an integrated remote and microphone.

The Audeze Sine is a fantastic headphone that will appeal to anyone looking for truly high-end sound that isn't incredibly expensive.

Audeze Sine review

 

Audeze's Sine are the clearest, most accurate, well-balanced on-ear headphones we've ever tried.

If you have exactly $500 to spend on a pair of headphones, we wouldn’t hesitate for a second in picking up Audeze’s new Sine. Versatile, stylish, and packing more fidelity than anything in this price class, the Sine will have virtually all other on-ear...

Audeze Sine On-Ear Headphones Review

 

These headphones are groundbreaking, but are they worth the money?

The SINE By Audeze

 

I've shaken my fist at the audio community for the past 8 or so years, but that prolonged whining got me nowhere. It seemed like no matter how hard I cried, audio designers and the HiFi community have both insisted that portable audio be voided of...

The only element preventing me from issuing the first ever 10/10 score was the fact that the stage depth of the headphone was a bit underwhelming, as well as Audeze’s choice of scuff prone leather used on the ear cups. Outside of that, I’ve nothing...

Audeze iSine are the world’s first planar magnetic in-ear headphones, we have a listen

 

High-end, California-based headphone manufacturer Audeze has taken much of the same technology found in the excellent Sine on-ear headphones, and put it into two dinky pairs of in-ears. The iSine 10 and iSine 20 bear a slight resemblance to the...

Audeze Sine review: When Lightning strikes

 

With Apple expected to ditch the 3.5mm jack, iPhone users will have two choices: either brave it in the world of wireless earphones, or find a Lightning connector-equipped set of cans.

Beautiful design and fixtures, superb full audio quality, hi-resolution audio experience, lightweight and easy to wear

Need an Lightning connector device (recent iPhone, iPad) to get the full audio experience, could fit more snug

It's rare to find a product that's almost impossible to fault. The Audeze Sine design isn't ostentatious, so if you want a pair of headphones that deliver the kind of audio you'd expect from top-of-the-line products, in a design that's subtle and...

Audeze Sine

 

Audeze opts for Lightning at the expense of non-iPhone users

Awesome all-in-one Lightning cable ; Leather-packed design ; Excellent sound

A weak value for non-iPhone users ; Cheaper 3.5mm option is (oddly) vastly inferior ; Expensive

The Audeze Sine are excellent headphones, with a big feature that rewards or punishes you greatly for the phone you're loyal to. iPhone users, you're in for a treat if you can afford it. Everyone else, keep looking.

Audeze Sine headphones: Lightning port listening never looked so good - Pocket-lint

 

There's long been talk of Apple ditching the headphones jack on the iPhone in favour of delivering audio via the Lightning port. All bets are on for that

Audeze Sine review

 

Loud and upfront Lightning connector cans don't quite justify the high price

Clear and spacious presentation ; Goes really loud ; Rugged build quality ; Includes standard 3.5mm cable

Needs better timing ; Uncomfortable for long hours ; Not as portable as rivals ; Pricey

The Audeze Sine Lightning headphones are loud and upfront, but not subtle, engaging or comfortable enough to justify the price
