In Ear Headphones - Audeze

In ear monitors (IEMs) or "earphones" are obviously a more discreet and portable solution to full-sized headphones and earphones of some variety are often now included with portable players, phones, etc. However, these bundled models are often cheaper types not designed to deliver excellent sound quality. You can enjoy far better sound quality by swapping them for a set of these branded earphones. Many of these models also include in-line remotes for taking calls on your phone and controlling volume.

Ear canal style headphones offer various advantages over standard in ear models and ear buds. The seal formed by the rubber or silicone earphone tips offers excellent isolation and passive noise attenuation, blocking out a large amount of environmental sound as well as keeping your sound in. This makes them ideal for use on the go, when commuting, at the gym etc., much more so than variants of full sized headphones due to their portable nature and the fact that they can stow away easily in a pocket. Most of these types of in ear headphones include a variety of ear buds and tips, in different shapes and sizes, allowing you to customise the fit and ensure that the best seal is made, and that the fit is just right.

Audeze is a high-end headphones manufacturer who are responsible for development of many great solutions including Fluxor Magnetic Technology, Uniforce voice-coil technology, Fazor soudwave management technology. Their range includes the LCD, EL8, Sine and iSine and Mobius series.

Audeze was founded in 2008 by Sankar Thiagasamudram and Alexander Rosson. They met Pete Uka an engineer who produced specialised flexible circuit materials for NASA and instantly discovered the material was ideal for headphones. Dragoslav Colich joined the team as CTO lending the brand over thirty years of experience in the design of planar drivers which led to the creation of the LCD-1 headphone.

They later created the legendary award-winning LCD-2 and LCD-3 headphones and higher-efficiency LCD-X and XC models. The planar magnetic technology is accessible to a broader audience with the EL-8, Sine and iSine series headphones. Audeze has a strategic partnership with Designworks, a BMW Group Subsidiary for the revolutionary industrial design for the new headphones as well as the Deckard DAC/Amplifier.

Audeze has patented planar magnetic designs with incredibly thin-film driver materials and dynamic custom magnets. Planars overcome many boundaries inherent in standard cone drivers; lightweight diaphragms are faster and more responsive than more dense moving-coil or dome drivers. Planar magnetic diaphragm also have a voice-coil circuit spread across the diaphragm surface.

The diaphragm’s voice-coil circuit touches with the magnetic field to create an electromagnetic force that sways the diaphragm back and forth producing the sound you hear when energized by an audio signal.

Audeze headphones utilise cutting-edge planar magnetic headphone technology for more precise, high-quality audiophile sound. High-end planar magnetic technology links you to your favorite artists and musicians as if you were at the original event. The desired frequency response for audiophile planar magnetic headphones generate a life-like sounding, enjoyable listening experience making it feel like you’re at the original recording.

Another great advantage of ear canal headphones is that they fit much more snugly than other designs, and will stay in the ear. It can be irritating to have to continuously readjust your earphones or put them back in your ear when they have fallen out. Ear canal style in ear headphones, if you achieve a snug fit, will stay in your ears through even the most rigorous activity, which is why they are favoured for use when exercising, on the move or at the gym.

Upgrading your in ear headphones can offer a range of benefits which will add extra enjoyment to your music, and turn your portable music device into a better sounding, more “hi-fi” source. Every aspect of sound can be improved by upgrading your headphones – bass performance can be richer and more vibrant, soundstage and imaging improved, while mid and high frequencies are more dynamic and lifelike. The headphones which come free with devices are often of an ear bud style, which sits in the ear. As mentioned, greater isolation, bass and fit can be achieved with earphones which fit directly into the ear canal.

Another reason why many users choose to upgrade their in ear headphones is simply build quality. Many of us use our portable devices and headphones on a daily basis, folding or scrunching them up and stuffing them in a pocket until they are removed again for the train journey home. This can put considerable strain on the cable, connectors and ear pieces; a strain which requires a solid and rugged build quality to endure. Most, if not all, of our in ear headphones are solidly built for longevity by reputable manufacturers who offer warranties to cover their products against damage, giving you peace of mind, and allowing you to use your headphones in the way you want.
