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 The design is a little outdated for me and I find the design of both the IE7 & IE8 far...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.

Sennheiser IE 6 review


Without question, the Sennheiser IE 6s are a cracking pair of earphones at an excellent price point, ready to show Shure and Bose a thing or two about what it means to be earphones costing £100

Balanced sound quality ; Extended bass response ; Suitable for all types of music ; Warm sound ; Comfortable fit ; Good sound isolation

Lacks a sparkling treble

Consider Etymotic's ER-6is if you want to spend a little less cash, settle for a more delicate bass and gain a more detailed sound; and do check out the Denon AH-C751s if dance music is your favourite alternative to sex, drugs and alcohol

They work!


I\'m 60 and now I know why I downloaded the songs I did to my Ipod. It\'s hard to find things of value and quality these days. These are great and worth more then I paid for them. Super sound and comfortable.

WOW! Sennheiser understands my ears.


My musical tastes are eclectic, and with my IE6\'s, it\'s easy to go from soft jazz crooners, who sound as if they\'re whispering only to me, to heavy metal shredders and driving bass, with the re-creation of a live performance experience. The treble...

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...

Consumer review by:



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
