Audeze has risen to the top of the audiophile world over the past decade, most notably for their orthodynamic, or planar magnetic, headphones. Known for their innovations in the field, it should be no surprise that Audeze was the first company in the world to produce in-ear orthodynamic headphones.
The iSINE 10 combines Audezeâ€™s LCD planar technology with the convenience of IEMs for a comfortable and truly impressive listening experience. Add the CIPHER Lightning cable with built-in amplifier and DSP for unsurpassed listening on an iDevice.
Cipher Lightning Cable
Ever since the iPhone parted ways with the 3.5mm output jack, audiophiles have adapted their listening habits with dongles, bluetooth IEMs, and adaptors. Audeze provides a brilliant solution with their Cipher Lightning Cable--an all-in-one cord for listening to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod with the iSINE 10. Containing a high-quality in-line amplifier, digital-to-analog converter, and DSP (all in one!), the cable delivers hi-fi 24-bit audio.
Fluxor Magnet Array
The Fluxor Magnetic Array is Audezeâ€™s proprietary magnetic structure. Itâ€™s both lighter and more powerful than the traditional magnet array found in other planar magnetic headphones, resulting in an overall lighter build and increased control over the diaphragm. Itâ€™s capable of rendering frequencies from 10 - 50,000Hz with pinpoint accuracy.
Fazor Phase Management
While planar magnetic headphones offer a lot of advantages over dynamic drivers, they also present their own problems. Diffraction of sound off the magnets can cause different frequencies to arrive at different times, resulting in changes of phase. And when sound waves created by multiple magnets collide, wave interference occurs (thatâ€™s a bad thing ).
Audeze has attempted to solve these problems with a proprietary technology called Fazor Phase Management . Fazors are triangular elements that cap each magnet. They act as guides for the sound, maneuvering waves from the drivers and preventing them from interfering with each other. The result is cleaner sound, greater resolution, and better imaging.
