There are two models, the iSINE10 and the iSINE 20, they're handcrafted IEMs that's engineered in California to deliver superb long-term comfort and immersive / dynamic music experience.
Audeze also boast that achieving the miniature planar magnetic driver is no easy feat as it is hard to compress the large magnetic speakers into a small package. What's interesting here is Audeze claims that this contains all their patented technology that includes power enhancing Fluxor Magnets and ultra-thin diaphragms w/ Uniforce voice-coil for accuracy.
The brand also said that the total harmonic distortion is less than 0.1% even at high volumes and the unit weighs at just 20 grams.
Apart from that, both the iSINE10 and iSINE20 will come with a 24 bit lightning cable for high-resolution sound that delivers 24 bit digital audio from your iDevice to the headphones. There's also an Audeze app with 10 band equalizer that changes EQ in real time.
The iSINE10 with 16 Ohms will be available in both lighting and standard cable with 3.5 mm stereo plug for USD 399. The iSINE20 on the other hand with 24 Ohms is priced at USD 599.
