Exclusive SINE planar magnetic technology
Acoustically engineered for accuracy
Audeze’s innovative planar magnetic technology delivers astonishingly clear and accurate sound.
Diaphragms thinner than a human hair
We use space-age materials in a near weightless diaphragm that’s three times larger than typical headphones for fast response times, dramatically reduced distortion, higher resolution and improved imaging.
Near zero distortion
Patented Uniforce™ voice-coil technology delivers a uniform driving force across the entire diaphragm for near zero distortion.
Nearly double the magnetic driving force
Patented Fluxor™ Magnet Arrays focus the magnetic flux nearly doubling the power driving the diaphragm for even lower distortion and greater accuracy.
Patented Fazor™ Elements guide internal headphone soundwaves to avoid resonance producing a more accurate waveform.
The world’s first 24-bit Lightning cable for higher-resolution sound
Immerse yourself in sound with Audeze’s one-of-a-kind CIPHER™ cable for a significant upgrade to your listening experience. It features an inline system-on-a-chip that drives your music to levels you never dreamed of by bypassing the iPhone’s internal DAC and amplifier and streaming high-resolution audio to our high-quality DAC with DSP for significantly better sound quality.The CIPHER™ cable also features a SIRI-compatible microphone for voice calls.
Customize your sound in real-time with the Audeze iOS App
The Audeze DSP app features two presets to personalize your music playback. It features a 10-band equalizer that changes EQ in real time. Refine the bass levels and tamp down the highs on peaky recordings you still love. Save two EQ curve presets that travel with the cable when switching devices.
Designed, engineered and handcrafted in our California factory
The SINE’s sturdy aluminum frame will last a lifetime and the connectors are mounted at an angle ensuring good contact. The earcups are handcrafted with smooth, flawless genuine leather with carefully matched, hand-picked earpads for best sound and maximum comfort. The headband fits everyone and contributes to the superb long-term comfort. The SINE is made in the USA with imported and US-made parts at our Southern California factory.
Cutting-edge industrial design
Our strategic partner Designworks, a BMW group subsidiary, provided the industrial design for the SINE. Audeze combines their cutting-edge designs with our own advanced planar magnetic technologies to create an astonishingly accurate sounding headphone with a custom aluminum frame and unique floating headband to provide maximum comfort over long listening sessions.

"The Audeze Sine is a fantastic headphone that will appeal to anyone looking for truly high-end sound that isn't incredibly expensive."
"Truly excellent sound. All the hallmarks of the planar magnetic driver: Skull-rattling, distortion-free lows, nicely balanced mids, and crisp, like-you’re-there highs."
Michael Calore, WIRED
"The SINE is an outstanding product and easily earned our coveted Metal-Fi award. So if you got $500 bucks or less to burn on a can, definitely audition the SINE. You won’t be disappointed."
Alexander Sack, Metal-Fi
"Powerful, vibrant, balanced audio performance. Stylish, comfortable design. Ships with 24-bit cable that receives digital audio via lightning connection on iOS devices."
Tim Gideon, PC Mag
"Instrument separation and layering is excellent; you can clearly distinguish between various sounds in an orchestra even when the music gets crowded."
Napier Lopez, The Next Web
"While the EL-8 and the SINE are both designed to overcome the limitations of most other planar headphones, many of which all but require a dedicated headphone amp to perform properly, the Cipher Lightning cable takes things to a whole new level."
Ryan Waniata, Digital Trends
"Sonically, they're prove no competition for almost all other on-ear headphones, with a high-end sound that seems almost out of place in a fairly small, stylish headphone!"

To avoid damage to your headphones and/or hearing, ensure the volume on your player is turned down before connecting your headphones. After placing headphones on your head, gradually turn up the volume until you reach a comfortable listening level. Exposure to excessive sound levels can cause gradual hearing loss and damage your headphones.
Excessive power levels can damage your headphones. Be sure to stay within the rated power levels of 2W RMS / 6W PEAK to minimize the risk of damage, which is not covered under warranty.
