    ^^^ I have both Sine and now Aeon Flux Open in the house. They are somewhat similar but the AFO goes deeper and wider and isn't brittle at all. Keeping them both - Sine for using the Cypher and iPhone, AFO for home use, have a iDSD BL and Schiit setup en-route.

    How comfortable is the Sine with stock pads in your opinion?

    I’ve seen the Sine with Cipher drop down to $299 multiple times throughout the year so I have a goal on Black Friday weekend to find it for $199-$249.

    I have been doing well on the stock pads for up to 2 hours. It helps to angle the earcups forwards. But for my upcoming travel plans I plan to swap them for the brainwavz pleather pads (non-angled). Will update with my findings

    Audeze only has 20 of the Sine left on Amazon...

    I hope this means they do have a new generation planned. Less so due to cost and more so due to portability, I’m not ready to commit to a LCD Series and an amplifier since my life is mobile. Sine is a valuable part of the Audeze lineup.

    I tried the iSine10 and honestly after just a week gave up on them due to the fit and returned them. I’m afraid to buy Sine since I will have to also return them if they’re uncomfortable so I hope Audeze releases gen 2 soon with comfort improvements. Or just makes Sine with the same form factor but over-ear...

    They should just release Sine gen 2 with LCD pads. :)

    Form factor and opensss would still be differentiators between the Sine and LCD line.

    i am just using 3d printed adapter. bit small for the humongous lcd pads. but as long as it doesn't fall off i am happy with it.

    but bit amazed at the new soundstage.

    if just for the sake of comfort and mobility, momentum 1 pad is good enough.

    Ordered a pair for $180 for black Friday.

    Excited!

    My first major portable. Used to my usually Abyss Phi 430HA Yggy setup.

    Will be way better than the earbuds that came with me GS8
