Audeze has outed the LCD-i3 earphones, the successor to the popular iSINE 20 and will slot below the LCD-i4.

The Audeze LCD-i3 mixes the winning combination of the LCD-i4's advanced design with the low impedance of the iSINE series. The result is an impressive performance that doesn't require a separate headphone amp.

Firstly, the LCD-i3 improves on the iSINE 20 by using the Magnesium housing and grille design of the LCD-i4. The trusted design reduces unwanted resonance.

Additionally, the new earphones feature improvements to the original iSINE 20 planar magnetic driver design. The LCD-i3 can push up to 130dB with zero audible distortion for an authentic audiophile in-ear experience.

Wireless Bundle

Included with each LCD-i3 are the CIPHER Bluetooth Module for wireless listening. You also get a Lightning Cable and standard 3.5mm cable bundled in with the package.

Featuring a Bluetooth 5.0 chipset with integrated support for AptX and AptX HD, the CIPHER Bluetooth Module delivers low-latency 24-bit wireless audio that has been optimised for even the most discerning ear.

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

These new accessories 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.

Price and availability

The Audeze LCD-i3 will retail at £849/$899 and will go on sale from September 23.
