The Audeze SINE DX is the world's first on-ear planar magnetic headphone which has an open-back design. To appeal to those discerning audiophiles who appreciate the wide soundstage that an open-back can offer, Audeze decided to improve their vastly popular SINE.
Just like the SINE, the DX version also employs planar magnetic technology that gives you sound that’s punchy, dynamic, and detailed. Its 80 x 70mm planar magnetic driver has more than 3x the surface area of any on-ear headphone in its class for better bass and dynamics. Because the DX is an open-back headphone, it offers an amazingly smooth frequency response.
It’s lightweight, and folds flat for easy travelling. Designworks, a BMW group subsidiary worked in collaboration with Audeze for the industrial design, and the SINE DX headphones, like all Audezes are manufactured in the USA at their Southern California factory.
The main point of differentiation between the Audeze SINE and the SINE DX is that the DX, being an open-back, offers a wide soundstage and is best used at home or in the studio. For audiophiles who want to experience the open-back goodness of an Audeze LCD headphone, the DX becomes an appealing budget friendly headphone.
