Worth it

  • Excerpt: No surprise here. Had a friend from work let me use their's on a few occasions. Couple them with just an iPod (3) a Sony PHA-2 and you have a very compact, excellent sounding, traveling sound system.

  • Excerpt: Love these earphones! Superb fit with choices of earpieces. Listening to FLAC rips and HDTracks downloads. Sound is fantastic - clear and crisp, tight deep bass. Excellent imaging. Minimal cable microphonics too. A surprise. Expensive, but for me, very much worth the price.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
  • Cons: Cord Too Short

  • Excerpt: These headphones are the most phenomenal sounding ever. They are super comfortable, lightweight and durable. The construction on these headphones is utterly amazing. The ceramic housing that contains the driver definitely is ultra durable. The product description says that it is scratch resistant. Also the cabling is an ultra high quality kevlar material.The case that is included is leather with a magnetic closure.

Perfect fit and sound

GlennG, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I have the Sennheiser IE80 but wanted to try the IE800 to see if they were really all that much better. As it turns out they are. The IE800 has a smooth balanced sound signature from the base to the highs. The sound is 'clearer' than the IE80's as well. I love the fit, too. They are very small earphones, and can be worn all day without any concern for fatigue or discomfort.
  • Pros: Smooth and balance sound; excellent separation; small and comfortable
  • Cons: Cord a little short; cord microphonics noticable when moving around

Sennheiser IE800 Stereo Earphone/IEM

Dale, Crutchfield
3 November 2013
  • Summary: Excellent top to bottom, ultra-smooth with no peaks, dips, or roughness. Strong bass and treble, but very high quality. Some IEMs have difficulty producing the very deep bass below 25 hz clearly - the IE800 does it with ease. Most comfortable IEM I've ever used.
  • Pros: Exceptional sound quality.
  • Cons: Very high price.

  • Summary: Just a few notes to qualify some of the ratings that would not be obvious: The highs are so strong (more than HD800 I think) that I can only give the IE800 a six. Soundstage seems OK to good for an IEM, but not unusual. Portability is good in the sense of size, but the carrycase design is fiddly. Sennheiser's isolation spec doesn't match my simple test with a music speaker playing from a few feet away.

  • Summary: Bought at (Singapore) S$1140  Audio This in ear is a marvel. I've auditioned quite a number of Balanced armatures and dynamic drivers in ears , and  over time, I’ve come to love most of the dynamic drivers a lot , regardless of brand or price , dynamic drivers always seems to deliver a more organic , believable , full bodied sound . This one is no different either. It outperforms many Balanced Armatures in my opinion.  Its sound, is simply majestic.
  • Pros: Dynamic bass , coherency , comfort , featherweight , good soundstage and imaging.
  • Cons: Good DAC is required .

  • Summary: You can read tons of reviews actually discussing the audio aspects of this set, I'll just stick to saying the lows are unforgivably clear and they have a great soundstage for IEM's.  They sound amazing!   Anyways, I mainly came to knock these down a peg - be sure these are for you before you buy!  I never realized how bad a high-end IEM could be for me personally.  I've loved my IEM's in the past, even enjoyed some cheap Senn's more than these.
  • Pros: Neutral mids, amazing clear lows, great highs! Great soundstage for such a small driver!
  • Cons: Where do I begin...they fall out, they don't fit, cord's too short, insane microphonics...never before have I heard my own heartbeat while resting.

  • 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!)    These IEMs (IE800s) are the ONLY IEMs that I've tried which sound like a full-sized headphone. You can't go wrong with the sound quality!    Cheers!
  • 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
