Product Description

At the heart of the IE 800 are several small but invaluable breakthroughs, like the perfected extra wide band (XWB) transducer system. Flaunting a diameter of only 7 mm, it is currently the smallest extra wide-band sound transducer available in dynamic ear canal phones and promises distortion-free sound, capable of performing even at high sound pressure levels.The IE 800s are among Sennheiser's most prestigious products and are only available from Club Orpheus members, such as ourselves, so you can be confident that you are getting the very best in quality from an approved Sennheiser specialist.

The IE800's are certainly a marvel of sound technology. I'll list the positives and negatives in my opinion.

Positives:

Build quality is excellent from the ceramic casing and two tiny ports to the supplied case with the serial no etched on a metal plaque.

Cable is reassuringly well made

Sound sublime with just about any genre of music from Hard Rock to Classical, excellent reproduction of music that doesn't emphasise the highs, mids or lows to any degree, but gives a very balanced sound that you'll miss when trying anything else.

Well balanced sound that will blow you away using a good source such as an Astell & Kern Player

Negatives:

Cost is eye watering for a pair of earbuds

Cable rustle when on the move which is transferred via clothing along the cable to the earbuds (microphonics as some people refer to this, solved by a £3 clip from Sennheiser - should be supplied with it)

Cable is non replaceable - a surprise at this price point

Proprietary design means that after market ear tips such as Comply's don't fit very well.

Overall I'd say they're one of the best IEM's that I've owned, but they're not without some minor niggles.

I bought these to replace a pair of Shure SE535s which I had for 3+ years and absolutely loved, but regrettably lost. I was apprehensive about spending this amount of money on ear-canal headphones again, the Shure's were a gamble that paid off because I found them to be very comfortable with hardly any microphonics, the 'black olive' tips, for me offered a very tight seal in the ears which is the key to getting the best possible soundstage. They were also very robust with very high sensitivity which meant I would actually need to lower the volume of my portable music player when compared to using other in-ear headphones, so any replacement would have a lot of expectations to live up to.

There is always the problem with ear-canal headphones in that you’re not really in a position to demo them which involves taking a huge risk, this even more so with Sennheiser IE800s, as retailers are required to be 'Club Orpheus' dealerships that carry other Sennheiser high-end products such as the HD800 headphones and their two headphone amplifiers. So the amount of outlets that actually stock these or can obtain them is quite limited. I took a gamble and managed to get a pair through my usual Hi-Fi dealer, who obtained them as a special order from Sennheiser.

I have been using them for 24 hours now and am simply blown away by the how impressive the sound is, especially straight out of the box. As many reviews on the internet can attest, these headphones have an incredibly wide soundstage, the low frequencies are very low, the treble is bright, detailed and airy, and the separation and timing on everything in-between is immaculate.

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... everything else just sounds muddy. They also look amazing with the black ceramic housings. Nice case, but not actually practical and a bit big.
Not so good:
Cable noise (when rubbing against your shirt), which is some of the worst I have experienced. I got a small cable clip, problem almost solved.
The supplied silicone tips cost a small fortune to replace ... while they are high quality, with meshes and great sound, they always slip out for me, and make my earhole sweaty. Luckily, comply tips tx200 fit fine, although does change the sound signature, producing more substantial bass, and the highs taken off slightly. Some people might prefer this though...

Upgraded these from ie80 and the difference is night and day.. ie80s were good to start with, but these are just on another level. So crisp and clear detailed in sound. Slightly high on bass though but i actually like it that way. I cant put these down amazing sound and comfort. If u truley love your music and have that extra cash just go with the ie800. You wont regret.
