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

 

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.

For this price, plenty of readers will be after a slightly more traditional, flat response-style pair of headphones, and there are certainly excellent options to choose from. We like the Beyerdynamic DT 1770 Pro, the Blue Lola, the Master & Dynamic...

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 Headphones Review: Luxury for Less

 

As a premier high-end audio brand, Audeze could have charged much more for the effortlessly stylish Sine headphones. But these cans sell for a mere $449, despite being the first to pack planar magnetic drivers in a closed-back design, delivering big,...

Elegant yet sturdy design ; Spacious soundscape ; Comfortable for long listening sessions ; Affordable for Audeze headphones

Somewhat heavy ; Standard cable lacks inline mic and remote

The Audeze Sine headphones offer excellent high-end audio in a supremely comfortable and luxurious design.

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 Sine

 

We don't often "preview" headphones, but the Audeze Sine are a little special. These are among the most advanced portable headphones I've ever seen, and not for reasons that you may at first imagine.

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

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...
