Audeze’s iSine 10 planar magnetic earphones sound as good as they look crazy

A couple of weeks ago, Audeze surprised audiophiles and stuck huge planar magnetic drivers into its new alien-looking iSine series. I was able to try out the ‘entry-level’ model, the $400 iSine 10, for about 30 minutes. In short: they sound like no IEMs (in-ear monitors) I’ve heard before.

That’s probably because they’re designed like no IEM before; the earphones are basically just funnels to direct sound from the nearly-full-size 20mm drivers directly into your ears.
