Sennheiser IE 800 In-Ear Headphone

Sound & Vision Magazine
24 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I’ve heard most of the world’s best in-ear headphones, and frankly, those custom-molded models fitted to my ear canal from the likes of JH Audio, Ultimate Ears, and Westone regularly trump the universal-fit models. So before I popped on the Sennheiser IE 800, a universal-fit earphone, I wondered if the sound would justify its $1,000 MSRP. I shouldn’t have worried; the IE 800 is a game changer.

  • Conclusion: The Sennheiser IE 800 is the most expensive non-custom-molded in-canal earphone pair we've reviewed, and it earns its price with excellent audio performance.
  • Pros: Superb audio performance through the frequency range, with rich lows and clear, vibrant mids and highs. Thoughtfully designed ear tips are easy to swap out, clean. Protective filters keep outside elements away from drivers.
  • Cons: Extremely expensive. Cable is not fully detachable—hardwired to ear pieces.

Sennheiser IE 800 in-ear headphones review

Pocket Lint
30 August 2013
  • Conclusion: The Sennheiser IE 800 in-ear headphones are astounding, yet have their imperfections too. Top-end won't sound so top at higher volumes, but then music shouldn't be listened to at eardrum-tearing levels. The clear bass and super-clean mix of frequencies - high-end ignored in part - make for an exceptional listen at the right volumes.
  • Pros: Impressive soundscape at sensible volumes, better bass response than any in-ear we've heard before, top-spec build, super-clear, crisp vocals
  • Cons: Treble unpleasantly cutting at higher volumes, can therefore be fatiguing, extremely pricey, finicky fit, bass will be too impactful for some, short cable, poor splitter placement

What Hi-Fi?
30 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Best in-ears £300+, Awards 2014. The IE 800s shine a light on Sennheiser’s entire operation. As headphones for your portable device, though, they’re probably overkill
  • Pros: Open, detailed, dynamic and utterly faithful sound, Unfazed by any genre of music, Beautifully built
  • Cons: Eye-wateringly expensive, Need a similarly accomplished source (of which there are few around)

  • Summary: Прежде всего, как вы уже заметили (и, возможно, успели высказаться по этому поводу), цена наушников Sennheiser IE800 составляет $1050. Первая реакция на такую новость наверняка звучит так: «да как пара вкладышей может столько стоить?» - если, конечно, вы хорошо воспитаны и не допускаете крепких выражений.

Review Sennheiser IE800 in-ear

Alpha-Audio
18 August 2013
  • Conclusion: We hebben wel degelijk naar een uitermate hoogwaardig setje in-ears geluisterd. De IE800 is zonder twijfel één van de mooiste in-ears op de markt. Het speelt soepel, luchtig, mild, soepel en vergevingsgezind zonder details te verliezen. Voorwaarde is dat de bron op hetzelfde niveau speelt. Maar dat is logisch. Eén detail hebben ze gemist en dat is het kabelgeluid. Echt jammer, want het is zonder meer storend onder het luisteren. Maar goed...
