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

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.
  • 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: 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...
  • 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.
  • Pros: Superb bass, gorgeous mids, smooth-yet-sparkling highs, expansive soundstage, excellent imaging, very comfortable
  • Cons: Microphonics, no remote/mic included, short cord

  • 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!
  • Cons: Price
