August 21 2019, 00:10
Audeze announced the new LCD-i3, successor to the extremely popular iSINE 20 and “little brother” to the LCD-i4. The LCD-i3 features sonic improvements over the iSINE 20, with Bluetooth, Lightning, and standard 3.5mm connectivity included. By using the Magnesium housing and grill design of the LCD-i4, the LCD-i3 reduces unwanted resonance and offers improved resolution over the iSINE 20.

The LCD-i3 introduces superior resolution and refined acoustical tuning to the award-winning iSINE design. Featuring the design of the LCD-i4 together with the low impedance of the iSINE series, the LCD-i3 can push up to 130dB with zero audible distortion for a true quality in-ear experience. The new model uses a 30 mm iteration of Audeze's planar magnetic driver with a neodymium N50 diaphragm, Fluxor magnet array and Fazor phase management.

Borrowing from the award-winning LCD-i4 design, the LCD-i3 also features a cast magnesium housing with an open back design for greater transparency and deep, clean bass extension. The low impedance driver leverages the company's patented Uniforce voice coil and Fluxor magnet technologies to achieve the highest dynamic range of any in-ear.

The brand new Ear Fins are ergonomically designed to provide a comfortable and secure fit within the concha bowl of the ear. For those that prefer the traditional iSINE fit, the redesigned Ear Hooks now curve inward along the back of the ear to ensure superior fit for ears of all shapes and sizes.

Included with each LCD-i3 are the Audeze CIPHER Lightning Cable, Bluetooth Module, and standard 3.5mm cable, providing incredible connection versatility that delivers audiophile sound quality through any device. Audeze's new CIPHER Bluetooth Module delivers low latency 24-bit wireless audio, featuring a Bluetooth 5 chipset with integrated support for aptX and aptX HD. These new accessories come included with every LCD-i3 and are fully compatible with all existing Audeze in-ear headphones!

Current iSINE or LCD-i4 owners interested in purchasing the accessories separately can do so through the iSINE accessory kit. The LCD-i3 will be priced at $899 USD retail.
