Sennheiser IE6 In-Ear Headphones

 

Sennheiser IE6 headphones equal quality for bass lovers!

The isolation feature is extremely effective, as it allows users to hear the music in the ear phones without being disturbed by the environment, but at the same time, without disconnecting them completely. Its compatibility fits a wide range of devices...

The dynamic driver of this device is poorly shaped and the product is not a first choice when it comes to its design either. Also, the Sennheiser IE6 is not effective enough for in ear monitors, especially when compared to its price

Part of a series of such products, next to Sennheiser IE 7 and IE 8, the Sennheiser IE 6 dynamic earphones comes with the quality the manufacturer used its customers with. A great device for rock and pop music listeners, this product is a true...

Sennheiser IE6 Sound Isolating Earphones

 

The Sennheiser IE6 are the lowest in the IE series of Sound Isolating In-Ears however they are great performers and well worth their price tag. The IE6 deliver superb sound quality that will surely out preform many In-Ears in the similar price range,...

You can wear the IE6 directly in you ear or wrap then around you ear and insert them into your ear, both methods are great and will stay securely inside you ear. The design is a little outdated for me and I find the design of both the IE7 & IE8 far...

Sennheiser IE 6 Noise Isolating In-Ear-Canalphone Review

 

With your purchase of the Sennheiser IE 6, you will find the following contents inside the box. Open the packaging and everything is laid out so pleasurable that you don't want to ruin such a good thing and frankly that will be the last time you see...

First-rate sound quality; Balanced audio; Great fitment once seated properly; Great looking canalphones; Cleaning tool and shirt clip is included; Packaging is real nice; Sounds larger than it is

Fitment is done in a particular way; Price will be a hard sell for some (worth the investment)

The Sennheiser IE 6 is something of an investment. You purchase one of these and you’ll never need to purchase anything else because it’s that good.

2 tin cans and some string will sound better

 

I did not buy these from Newegg, and have nothing but praise for Newegg. Newegg ROCKS.

Not a single bit of praise for these

These are without a doubt, the worst sounding earbuds I have ever owned. They are anemic, tinny, sounding. I tried each of the 3 sizes of buds supplied and got better sound from a $10 pair of Skull Candy buds ; They would not "seal" no matter which...

Amazing

 

Sound amazing for the price. I have been through at least 6 different earphones and these have sounded the best out of all of them

They put to much money in the case and box? Could have saved a few bucks just on that

Using with Zune 32Gb

 

I switched from $40 Sony and Sure to this IE6 and I'm glad I did. My first impression was so great and now I can enjoy my music collection while walking my dog. Please notice that you can use IE6 with or without the flexible ears holders. I found using...

Well build, great sound, no extra noise from cables while you walking, comfortable, good base

At this price? none

Excellent!!

 

These things are amazing. Cant comment on durability but they look well made the carry case seems a little pointless as its quite big but who cares when they sound as good as this. don't buy the cx 400 after playing with these because these are in a...

amazing sound, Light weight, more accessories than you could ever need

guess price if you want be picky but still, worth every penny
