Audeze recently released a new planar magnetic in-ear headphone – the Audeze Euclid. Unlike the iSINE series, the Euclid is a closed-back headphone and features an entirely new look and design. It features a custom-built 18mm planar magnetic driver; MMCX cable termination; and ergonomically designed precision-milled aluminum housing. The Audeze Euclid is now available and comes with an MSRP of $1,299. Price-wise, it sits in between the LCDi4 and the LCDi3. Check out more details below.
Audeze Euclid Closed-Back Planar Magnetic In-Ear Headphone
The Audeze Euclid features Audeze’s 18mm planar magnetic drivers and has technologies like the company’s Uniforce voice coil, Fluxor magnets, and Fazor waveguides. According to the company, the Euclid has the highest SPL of any closed-back in-ear in its size category. It offers enhanced transparency and accuracy in sound reproduction.
It doesn’t have any crossovers; resulting in greater cohesion across the entire frequency spectrum. The Euclid is engineered with 105 dB/mW efficiency and a max SPL well over 120dB*. Audeze also mentions that despite having a closed-back design, it offers a wide sound stage making it feel that you’re not listening to a closed-back headphone.
The Audeze Euclid, interestingly, features a unique ergonomic shell. It is said to provide increased comfort over extended listening sessions and ergonomic fit. Its aluminum shell is also durable and lightweight, with a smooth matte black finish and carbon fiber faceplate.
The Euclid uses MMCX connector with gold plated terminations. Moreover, it comes with a variety of eartips. The package includes Audeze’s silicone eartips; SpinFit silicone eartips; and Comply foam eartips.
Euclid’s Sound Characteristics
Well, we don’t have the Euclid yet to test and listen to. But according to early reviews, it is a well-rounded in-ear headphone with a good amount of bass, great instrument separation and details; and is overall a good headphone for all or most types of genres.
Pricing and Availability
The Audeze Euclid is now available and comes with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $1,299. In additiona, Audeze also offers a 3-year driver warranty. Bluetooth and 4.4mm balanced cables are expected to be available by March.
