The Audeze Sine – The On-the-ear Headphones
What’s the difference between on the ear and over the ear headphones? If you’ve lived through the MTV scene of the 80s, the first model will send shivers of both recognition and nostalgia down your spine. The on-the-ear, swanky Audeze Sine are the modern, high-tech descendants of the Walkman headphones.
Not only are the luxury headphones from Audeze Sine a real deal at $499.99, but the pair has the distinction of being the first on-ear headphones to use planar magnetic drivers. At least, this is what its marketers rave about. The sound is spacious, as this is the main feature of the on-ear model. However, that doesn’t translate to any sound leakage or noise distortions.
Throw in an extra $50, and your retro headphones will be joined by a ‘lightning cable’ that connects your microphone to an iPhone 7.
Audiophiles want more than a pair of functional luxury headphones. Producers know that and include that glut of features in the price tag that you’ll find very hard to resist.
