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.

Great IEM's and highly recommended!!
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.

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.

Sources: iPhone4 alone, iPhone4 with FiiO E17 and PA2V2 amp using LOD, various computers using Audioengine D1 or Dragonfly DAC and the DAC's headphone out.

Question No.1: How does it sound? The treble is as strong or stronger than the Senn. HD800, as strong as the Shure SRH940 and SRH1440, and stronger than the Grado PS500. I had my ears cleaned 48 hours before testing, giving them time to settle back to a normal listening state before making this evaluation. After adjusting the highs a little, I find the sound to be better than anything else I've heard. The bass hits hard but is clean, not bloated, not boomy, i.e. as perfect as I'd want in a thousand dollar (USD) IEM, but that's based on use with mini-DACs such as the Dragonfly or Audioengine D1 from a computer USB. With the lesser analog amps or with a portable music player (PMP) alone, the bass might seem a bit strong, but even then it's not especially boomy, and not bassy like (for example) the Philips L1 or v-moda M100.

The midrange is so clean and free of coloration that switching back to any other headphone I have currently (Senn. Momentum, Beyer DT770LE, v-moda M100, ATH ESW9a and ESW11Ltd, Soundmagic HP200, B&W P5) - all of those sound distinctly lo-fi by comparison. The treble as noted above is smooth, sparkly and detailed. There's a possibility that a strong treble can create the impression of greater detail than the earphone actually has, and the intimacy of having an earphone directly in the ear canal eliminates reflections and other minor smearing that large-cup headphones produce, so that fact can also add to the impression of greater detail. That said, what I hear with just the mini-DACs is real detail, and pretty amazing detail at that.
