New IE 800 S In-Ear Monitors From Sennheiser

By |


Sennhesier-ie800s.jpgSennheiser has introduced an updated version of its IE 800 in-ear monitors. The new IE 800 S uses a "refined" version of Sennheiser's Extra Wide Band (XWB) driver, as well as a patented dual-chamber absorber system designed to neutralize the masking effect and improve the audibility of high-frequency sounds at low volume levels. The IE 800 S has a matte black finish and comes with a standard 3.5mm jack, plus 4.4mm Pentaconn and 2.5mm balanced connectors. This IEM is available now for $999.95.

From Sennheiser
Audio specialist Sennheiser is once again redefining compact, take-anywhere audiophile sound--with a new generation of the groundbreaking IE 800 ear-canal headphones. Enhancing a modern classic, the new IE 800 S features improved acoustics with brilliant trebles and a refined bass sound. Supreme comfort is ensured by Comply memory foam ear tips, while a wider choice of cables meets the demands of even the most discerning audiophile. Engineered and hand-crafted in Germany, the new IE 800 S also features subtly refreshed looks with a contemporary matte black finish.

"We are driven by a vision to shape the future of audio, and this means being determined to keep pushing the envelope," explains Manuel Ricke, Product Manager Audiophile at Sennheiser. "With the original IE 800, we set a new standard with the creation of genuinely audiophile-grade earphones. Now, we are taking that original vision even further with the new IE 800 S."

The new ear-canal headphones offer a pure and uncompromised high-fidelity listening experience that can be enjoyed anywhere. Featuring a refined version of Sennheiser's specially developed Extra Wide Band (XWB) driver, the IE 800 S redefines the benchmark for distortion-free in-ear performance. The proprietary 7mm transducers deliver an exceptionally detailed, lifelike sound image, with brilliant trebles and a precise and improved bass sound. The new model employs Sennheiser's patented dual-chamber absorber (D2CA) system, neutralizing the so-called 'masking effect.' This acoustic phenomenon arises as the human ear cannot perceive high-frequency sounds at a low volume if louder sounds in a lower frequency range are occurring at the same time. The absorber system removes the energy from any masking resonances to prevent unwanted peaks, making even the finest nuances of sound audible.

In addition to the standard cable with a 3.5mm jack, the new IE 800 S includes 4.4mm Pentaconn and 2.5mm balanced connectors, making it even easier to get the very best sound from your audio equipment.

The IE 800 S is available now for 999.95 USD and 1,299.95 CAD.
