Product Description

The IE 800 establishes a new audio performance benchmark for dynamic driver ear canal headphones. A newly developed extra wide band (XWB) transducer, flaunting a diameter of only 7 mm, is currently smallest extra wide band sound transducer available in dynamic ear canal phones. This transducer delivers dynamic, high output, distortion-free performance when housed in Sennheiser's state-of-the-art dampened two chamber absorbers (D2CA) ceramic housing. Designed, developed and produced in Germany, the IE 800 boasts innovative technology packed in an attractive, modern and elegant design. Manufactured with high-quality materials, such as scratch-resistant ceramic for the housing to ensure longevity, these ear-canal phones make enjoying audiophile music "on-the-go" a reality. They are the perfect companion to any portable audio device, especially those capable of delivering high resolution sound.

These sound so good.
JZ
I have owned high-end Etymotic ER-400s, Shure 530se, and a pair of Sennheiser IE8s, and I have to say that these IE800s are the best sounding IEMs I have owned.
Laura Huston
The IE800 renders the bass with good detail and the voices sound very natural.

Let me preface by saying that I'm not a hardcore audiophile but that I do enjoy listening to music and travel quite a bit for work and am constantly on the hunt for new IEM's and headphones to use when traveling on planes/etc. That being said, I'd probably describe myself more as an enthusiast rather than a hardcore audiophile.

I was in the market for some high end IEM's and was choosing between the Shure SE846-CL Sound Isolating Earphones with Quad HiDef MicroDrivers, Crystal Clear and Sennheiser IE 800 High-Performance In-Ear Headphones (Black). I was looking to upgrade from my Shure SE535-CL Triple High-Definition MicroDriver Earphone with Detachable Cable (Clear) and Westone UM 3X In-Ear Musician's Monitor, Universal Fit Earphone with Removable Cable, Clear, 79292 (I have the RC removable cable version of the UM3x's). Anyway, I ended up buying the SE846's and found a pair of used IE800's on another site so now I have all four of these IEM's and plan on selling the SE535's and UM3x's. I know I really don't need two sets of IEM's but with the SE846 and IE800 I love them both so much that I don't really want to sacrifice one or the other.

Background: Class and jazz musician. Currently own and use Etymotic, Shure, Ultimate Ears in front of ALO audio DAC/Amp listening to hi-rez audio records (24bit/88Mhz) off an Astell & Kerns AK100.

These are the finest IEM I have listened to. I took great pause seeing the price of these. However, I have to say they are well worth the price given their phenomenal imaging, outstanding sonic resolution, and superior noise isolation. These are precise yet musical. They are vastly open and three-dimensional, but naturally and musically so. These have now become the IEM standard for any indication, including noisy airplane travel.

They are essentially "open ear" in ear monitors, as opposed to most/all other IEMs I've used, which have a closed-ear design. This improves imaging characteristics because the speakers are not projecting into a closed cavity where air has nowhere to move. Looking at the open-ear design, I was initially concerned that noise isolation would be compromised and that these would not be suitable for airplane travel. I have not found this to be the case. Noise isolation is quite excellent. Of the various IEM's I own, I would rate the noise isolation characteristics as follows: Etymotic > IE800 > Ultimate Ears > Shure.

The soundstage on the IE800 is phenomenal, far better than any other IEM I have tried, and better than most headphones as well. The soundstage on these is similar in characteristics to the Sennheiser HD800. Though the latter (open ear headphones) are obviously superior, the IE800's are similarly expensive and discrete. The soundstage is 3-dimensional, though obviously not as realistic as the HD800. It is vastly superior to any other IEM's I have owned or auditioned.

Verified Purchase
This product is for people who want and demand excellent sound quality and are willing and able to pay for it.

I have used Shure 530, the Westone 3, Audeo PFE 232, Westone 4 (my former favorite) and now for the last week, the Sennheisers. My home full headphones system includes Beyer T1, Woo Audio WA 2 (upgraded), First Watt J2 amp and Meitner MA-1 DAC (incredible product). I mention these so you know what my reference point and preferences are.

Simply put, the Sennheisers are in a class of their own and you can tell that in the first ten seconds. It's that obvious. All the others sound muffled and unenvolving in comparison (apart from the Audeo which sound open but harsh to me).

There is no area of weakness. Bass is rock solid and deep, midrange is very involving and the treble is smooth and extended. You hear many more nuances in the recordings driven from iPhone 5 or MacBook Pro 13 inch retina late 2013 model. The beginning of We Belong (Pat Benetar) actually startled me with it's dynamics and clarity. Other tracks were from All the Little Lights by Passenger, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and HD music including Ben Howard (Linn Records), Paper Tiger from Beck or Rebecca Pigeon. All were wonderful with super detail and separation of all the instruments instead of the jumbled mess one often encounters.

I know very well that some people cannot distinguish between some free earphones and high quality sound. That's great in a way as you can save a ton of money. But, for those of us who can only enjoy the music when it's well reproduced, these are a wonderful solution short of custom-fitted IEMs.

My one criticism is the earbuds.
