  • Summary: The IE800 are the best IEMs I have ever tried. This includes the Shure SE846 & 535, Audeo PFE232, AKG 3003, JH13 and JH16 and many others. I also prefer their sound to many full size cans like the beyerdynamic DT-880, T70, T90; Sennheiser Momentum, HD650; Shure SRH1840 etc.
  • Pros: Superb bass, gorgeous mids, smooth-yet-sparkling highs, expansive soundstage, excellent imaging, very comfortable
  • Cons: Microphonics, no remote/mic included, short cord

  • Summary: Still burning-in, but I can already say they are by far the best sounding IEM's I've ever heard. Fantastically clear/clean through the mids and treble - tremendous detail resolution without things sounding harsh or clinical. Treble is precise, rich, coherent and extended.
  • Pros: FANTASTIC midrange quality. Very, very detailed without fatigue. Fun bass and extended high-end. Open sounding (for an IEM). Well built. Lightweight.
  • Cons: Cable microphonics. May sound bass-heavy to some. Expensive.

  • Pros: Amazing soundstage, incredible detail, deep impactful bass, very comfortable even for long periods, easy to drive, sound good even at low volume!

  • Summary: I must first and foremost give a massive thank you to both Sennheiser and Bill Poteet for giving me the opportunity to review such an amazing product. Despite this being a flagship product it’s one I don’t see onto many lists of head-fi meets, so the likelihood of me having the ability of hearing...
  • Pros: Wonderful & sensual sound, stunning build

  • Summary: Introduction – The ie800`s are as of March 2016, Sennheiser`s flagship iem that was designed by a small team over a period of 5 years. They were released with an absurd $1000 USD price tag that garnered much attention, but have since fallen down to as low as $550 USD.
  • Pros: Unsurpassed midrange clarity, Treble extremely resolving, Great high and low end extension, Light and comfortable, Perfect for low volume listening
  • Cons: Fitment is unreliable stock, abundant fakes, treble splashy on some recordings

  • Summary: Hello! When someone invests this much money would like to know as much as possible. I will try to express what is not already written in other reviews. I know that most people who read reviews are those who are thinking to buy a product, not people who have a certain product.
  • Pros: The best sound for universal in ear monitors, comfortable, pinpoint precision, big soundstage, mids, bass, treble, clarity, vivid sound
  • Cons: DAC/AMP deoendent to sound good

  • Summary: I'll keep this short cause I'm not good at writing reviews. I just wanted to say that I have tried Shure 846 and I really did NOT like it. The sound from Shure is too condensed with not much soundstage (unlike its full sized cans which sound very nicely!
  • Pros: Amazing SQ, Excellent soundstage, comfortable to wear, small, light, built like a tank
  • Cons: Cable makes noise, cable is not replaceable, limited eartip selection

  • Summary: I'm not that much of an IEM guy. That said, I needed some IEMs as I sometimes travel. I wanted a good all-rounder, something with which I could listen to music on my phone and also play games on PS Vita. I didn't want some "decent" IEMs though.
  • Pros: Amazing all around sound, superb bass, mids and treble, cool and modern design
  • Cons: Nothing for me. Non-detachable cable might bother some.
