  • Summary: DO NOT BUY.   The sound, in particular the bass is great. BUT, I've had the cable break at the jack on two pairs within a month of getting each (they were replaced under warranty). I have not abused them or dropped my phone hanging from the cable: it is just poorly designed. This is unacceptable for a $160 pair of phones, when the standard phone ones last longer. DO NOT BUY - unless you only want them for a month.
  • Pros: Great sound, the bass in particular.
  • Cons: Cable is not durable

  • Summary: Almost a year ago, I reviewed the XP series (XP1, XP2 and XP3) from beyerdynamic, which is sold only in Asia. The company has since introduced a few higher end models, including the DX 160 iE that is going to be reviewed here. Priced at about US$120, is it going to sound double as good as the half-priced XP series?
  • Pros: BUild Quality, Accessories.
  • Cons: Price.

  • Summary: Disclaimer: the DX 160 iE was provided free of charge by Beyerdynamic for review purposes. No monetary exchange or donations were involved throughout the process.               Starting off simply, let’s discuss the accessories that are included in the packaging. For starters, the DX 160 iE comes with a small carrying case that has a gloss-black-on-matte-black screen-printed “Beyerdynamic” logo on one side.
  • Pros: EDM friendly, solid aluminum construction, low-tangle low-microphonic cable, plenty of accessories.
  • Cons: Recessed treble and mids, questionable cord design.

  • Summary: I received the Beyerdynamic DX 160 and immediately began listening to get a good feel for this brand new IEM. Putting through a variety of genres and some sweeps these are the opinions I formed.   Build Quality: The DX 160 is a well made IEM, the aluminum housings and nozzles mean there is very little risk of these getting crushed or the nozzles breaking off, problems endemic to other IEMs, the flat cable terminates into a 3.5mm that is also the Y connector, which then...
  • Pros: Bass extension and impact
  • Cons: Recessed mids

  • Summary: I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with Beyerdynamic brand (designed and engineered in Germany) and their popular over-ear headphones, considered to be at the top of a lot of audiophile lists. But not a lot of you, including myself, are familiar with their in-ear product line. Though I had an opportunity to review not too long ago one of their flagship Custom One Pro headphones, I was very curious to find out how Beyerdynamic scaled down their legendary bass driven sound...
  • Pros: Warm balanced sound, great bass extension, excellent selection of accessories/eartips
  • Cons: extension cable

  • Summary: Bought these as was specifically looking for a short cable headphones with decent sound quality and since I have read great reviews about previous models I decided to go for it. Delivered directly from Beyerdynamic in less than a week for 100 EUR + 30 EUR shipping (a bit steep).   I like: - the flat cable (the cable is not as flat is some Monsters, which are to flat for my taste), - design, - comfort (these are the most comfortable pair of headphones, despite their heavy...
  • Pros: Superb sound (especially base and highs)
  • Cons: Isolation without Comply is a bit lacking on the other hand, Comply make isolation a bit to hard

  • Summary: Stumbled upon this pair of earphones when watching this year's CES videos. Decided to give it a try when I found out that Jaben Singapore had these earphones in stock. It was much better than my MMX 101ies, like, WAY better. The soundstage was noticeably better and the bass is brought slightly forward without losing its tightness as compared to the MMX 101ies. However, I could still hear some ambient noise when putting them on without playing music.
  • Pros: Well-balanced sound, Clear-sounding, good soundstage, tight bass
  • Cons: Average Isolation

  • Summary: Beyerdynamic DX 160iE Review:   I would firstly like to thank Thomas from Polar Audio (Beyerdynamic distributor in the UK) for lending me this sample for review. I will write as honest a review possible. The DX 160iE and DX120iE are the latest in the beyerdynamic IEM line up. These received over 50hrs of burn-in, no differences were noted.
  • Pros: Build quality, balanced sound.
  • Cons: no chin slider

Great sound but missing y adapter

  • Summary: These earphones sound great with no distortion or painful-sounding treble. The Comply tips work well but are difficult to remove. These are great however mine were missing the y adapter. These earphones are more inclined to sound bassy but the seperation of instruments are good and vocals are prominent.
