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
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.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
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.
Pros: Smooth and balance sound; excellent separation; small and comfortable
Cons: Cord a little short; cord microphonics noticable when moving around
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.
Summary: Bought at (Singapore) S$1140
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...
Pros: Dynamic bass , coherency , comfort , featherweight , good soundstage and imaging.
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: 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.
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.
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.
Pros: Amazing soundstage, incredible detail, deep impactful bass, very comfortable even for long periods, easy to drive, sound good even at low volume!
