So Apple has finally ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack. Bad news for anyone who has just invested in a decent pair of wired headphones but it’s double rollover, Christmas and birthday time for the engineers at Audeze who lead the charge with their brilliant range of lightening cable headphones. And Brogue can’t get enough of the Audeze SINE.

Lightning cable connectivity aside these are the first on-ear planar magnetic headphones to also boast a headphone amplifier and high-resolution 24-bit DAC that offers epic distortion-free lows and wonderfully crisp highs virtually (and literally) unheard of at this price point. Add in all-day comfort and an understated but stylish design from BMW’s DesignWorks and you’ve got the complete package.
£399, Audeze.com
