Review: Audeze iSine 20

The latest release from Audeze, the iSine 20, takes technology typically found only in over-ear headphones and squeezes it into a pair of ultra-portable earbuds. While that’s certainly commendable, people accustomed to regular earphones—which comfortably envelop the ears—must make some compromises. And at $ 600, there’s no easy buy-in. But with the right ...
