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.

Sennheiser IE 800

PC Magazine
16 July 2013
  • 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 headphones review

wired.co.uk
24 December 2014
  • Conclusion: It's difficult not to admit the IE 800s are contenders for "best in-ear headphones I've yet heard", but it's equally tough not to admit they're so acutely engineered that they're priced too high, even for many of the world's most passionate music lovers.
  • Pros: Genuinely top-of-class sound quality, great design and comfort
  • Cons: Engineering to this degree ramps up the cost significantly against the competition

Sennheiser IE 800

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)
