Sennheiser IE8 In-Ear Headphones

 

Sennheiser claims its new top of the range earphones can compete with the best from any other manufacturer. Ed puts them to the test.

Sennheiser IE 8 review

 

Can Sennheiser's ultra-expensive in-ears even begin to justify their price? Actually, they can…

Expensive, but there’s no finer way to drown out the cries of your bank manager

Sennheiser IE8 review

 

With a proven track record with in-ear 'phones, can Sennheiser's top dog rule the pound?

Detailed sound ; Good accessories ; Bass tweaking

With its combination of neutral midrange and treble, bass and effortless detail, this is arguably the model to beat for all-round sound

Sennheiser IE 8 review

 

Most top-end headphones have stunning clarity and detail, but this can come at the cost of weak bass tones. Meanwhile, headphones with emphatic bass often lack precision at higher frequencies.

Finally, a set of high-end earphones that produce rich bass tones without overwhelming the rest of the sound

Sennheiser IE8

 

If there are more powerful in-ear, noise-isolating headphones out there we haven't heard them!

Tub-thumping bass. Awesome sonic performance

How much?! Take a while to 'warm up

Sennheiser IE 8

 

This pair of sound-isolating earphones is one of our all-time favourites, with explosive bass that dance fans will adore.

Stunning bass performance and overall sound quality ; Solid design

We've heard sweeter treble from other models

Shure's SE530s will give you less bass but a sweeter, airier treble, perhaps making them preferable for country, folk and jazz, but this is too subjective for us to use when scoring the IE 8s. But they're certainly an alternative to consider if you...

Sennheiser IE8 Sound-Isolating Earphones

 

Great sound quality delivered thanks to the best technology

The best sound quality possible that you could get from a pair of in-ear earphones are given bye these earphones. The range of accessories provided along with these earphones are very useful. Sound-isolation means that external noise is removed

The carry cause has space for extra tips without really needing it. The bass of these earphones is a bit weak

The flagship earphone model of Sennheiser, the IE8 is the best piece of equipment for the audiophile who wants to stay mobile at all times. It provides out-of-this-world sound quality and extremely effective noise-cancellation thanks to its...

Sennheiser's IE 8 ($449.95) is the firm's flagship in-ear headphone and it's a product I've wanted to hear ever since I got an introduction the IE8 and IE7 models at a Sennheiser tradeshow booth well over a year ago. At the time, the booth guide...
