  • Summary: After reading glowing reviews of both of these in ear monitors I was still unable to decide which one would be right for me so I bought both, first the Shure and a few weeks later the Sennheiser. I already own the JH Audio 16 Pro, Ultimate Ears Triple.fi 10 Pro, HiFi Man HE-500, Sennheiser  HD 650, Shure SRH940 among others. My music files are all in FLAC format and I play them through an Astell & Kern AK120 and also used a Samsung Galaxy S4 for comparison purposes.
  • Pros: Amazing soundstage, incredible detail, deep impactful bass, very comfortable even for long periods, easy to drive, sound good even at low volume!
  • Cons: Price

Sennheiser IE800 Stereo Earphone/IEM

Dale, Crutchfield
9 February 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: Hello guys, I have been reading about the IE800 for some time now. I heard people saying it is a mini HD800. That intrigued me, as I love the HD800. I usually hate IEMs for their congested and bassy sound. I also hate sticking something inside my ears, but was curious about Sennheisers' new addition. It seems I am a lucky man,  as last week soundnews.ro asked me if I can write a review for them on their site. Of course I accepted as I love their website.
  • Pros: Excellent well extended, tight and punchy bass, amazingly detailed mids, very detailed and sparkly treble without being bright. Good soundstage and positioning.
  • Cons: Other than price, I couldn't find any.

Best dynamic driver earphones you can buy

P, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Good: After having dual, triple and quad armature earphones from several brands, these were completely different. Amazing clarity, transparent sound with a huge wide soundstage, but still enough bass (but not head crushing) for various types of music. The dynamic drivers in these are tiny and sound fantastic, also making them easy to power with no need for an amp. I mainly use this with an ak120 with 24 bit FLAC files, and they are now my no.1 pair...

Unbelievable sound quality but not without some design issues

Dharminder Ranautta, Amazon
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Pros Sound so good it will (continually) make your jaw drop. Pair these earphones with good quality mp3’s or FLACS and the detail you will hear will be unbelievable – particularly mids. Vocals are incredible along with percussion. Bass is strong and treble detailed and sparkly. These are also incredibly fast earphones with great separation between instruments and vocals.

Expensive but Magnificent

Pof Roger Ellis, Amazon
30 September 2013
  • Summary: These IEMs are in short supply at present with a daunting price hike direct from Japan and before customs. I was fortunate to get a pair from Peter Tyson who allowed me to return Grado G10s which I found impossible to locate for a full frequency sound. They are to my ears in a class of their own.

Einfach Spitze

Nur_ein_Kunde, Amazon
25 November 2013
  • Summary: Wirklich der beste was ich bisher gehört habe. Single Driver hat auch seine Vorteile, wo viele ja auf Multis schwören. Man muß sich allerdings erst daran gewöhnen wie gut er eigentlich ist. Die Ohren sind von anderen ein bisschen "verdorben", es braucht also seine Zeit. Aber dann will man kaum noch mit anderen hören! Schade das die Kabel direkt am Hörer nicht tauschbar sind, sind aber gute Kabel. Ob es einem der Preis wert ist, muß man halt wissen.

Klang begeisternd, Ausstattung (fast) makellos

Capetownlounge "capetownlounge", Amazon
4 November 2013
  • Summary: Was mich überrascht hat: wie leicht und klein die KH sind. Z.B. UE triplefi 10 sind wesentlich größer. Diese hier sind klein genug, um damit - auch auf der Seite liegend - einzuschlafen. Zum Klang schreibe ich nur wenig, da dies ohnehin sehr subjektiv ist. Was mich besonders begeistert, ist die klare und breite Aufstellung der Bühne, die wirklich jedes Instrument im Orchester "sortiert" und greifbar macht. Gleichzeitig freier/luftiger Klang.
