Sennheiser IE 8i

 

The Sennheiser IE 8is are a newer pair of in-ears that have a few interesting features. With eight different sets of sleeves and optional ear-loops, it's not hard to see that Sennheiser really tries to make the listening experience a comfortable one....

Solid distortion performance ; Nice, even tracking

Not the greatest isolation ; Some quirks in frequency response

The Sennheiser IE 8is are a good set of in-line earbuds, albeit with a high price tag. While you’re likely to find cheaper headphones with comparable audio performance, the detachable ear buds allow for easy maintenance.

You can find similar performance for less, but easy maintenance means they'll last

Solid distortion performance; Nice, even tracking

Not the greatest isolation; Some quirks in frequency response

Overall, the Sennheiser IE 8i’s shortcoming is its pricetag. While they are decent earbuds, their cost is a bit high. Still, if you are looking for audio performance and longevity above all else, these are a great pickup. They produce decent quality...

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...

The IE8s are a very interesting set of in-ears, because they combine a lot of different features sound wise. One of the things I really love about the IE8s is their expansive sound stage, it is quite simply the best I have ever heard from an IEM...

This is the top model in their Professional Portable range and is surprisingly configurable so today we find out if these are useless gimmicks which detract from the sound quality or if the whole package combines to create some of the best headphones...

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

Detailed sound ; Good accessories ; Bass tweaking

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 IE8i

 

Are these the best earphones for discerning bassheads?

Deep, punchy bass ; Customisable bass level ; Removable cable

Kinda ugly design

The Sennheiser IE8i show that earphones don't need six drivers to produce great sound. Using dynamic drivers, the low-end is more prominent here than in almost all pairs available at a similar price, but the quality of bass here is alarmingly good....

Product Specifications

The flagship model of the IE Series, the IE 8 mark a milestone in the development of ear-canal phones. With their unique technology, the IE 8 enable the user to precisely fine-tune the bass response according to his or her preference. An interchangeable, Kevlar -reinforced cable ensures a maximum of serviceability and flexibility; different cable lengths and configurations are available. The IE 8 come with a wide variety of ear adapters, offering a high noise attenuation of up to 26 dB! The carrying case of the IE 8 has been fitted with (replaceable) dry salt pads. These pads ensure a constant level of humidity of the product when stored, which is particularly helpful as the ear-canal phones may have been exposed to sweat during use. The IE 8 are ideal for portable AV devices like MP3, DVD and CD players, iPods, iPhones, or any other mobile phone with a 3.5mm stereo jack.
