An audiophile in-ear headphone that costs less than you'd think

 

The Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE and step-down DX 120 iE are among the best sounding in-ear headphones in their price range.

The Beyerdynamic DX160 iE features impressive sound for the money, with meaty, tight bass. A nice carrying case is included.

No inline remote or microphone for making cell-phone calls; treble clarity a tad lacking.

While the Beyerdynamic DX160 iE has some small downsides, it's a bona fide audiophile in-ear headphone at an invitingly affordable price.

Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE In-Ear Headphones Review

 

The ergonomic Beyerdynamic DX 160 iE In-Ear Headphone is a dynamic in-ear headphone offered at an affordable price

Beyerdynamic has a long and storied heritage in dynamic-driver headphones, and the DX 160 iE shows they have learned a thing or two about how to craft a beautiful in-ear headphone that is a delight to hold and use. Beyerdynamic is certainly not...

Beyerdynamic DX160 iE review

 

Another pair of strong headphones from Beyerdynamic. If you're after a smooth, weighty sound, these will do nicely.

Weighty sound Smooth presentation Plenty of detail

Tough competition Needs more punch and agility

We really like the DX 160 iEs – but the competition out there is rather fierce.

Beyerdynamic iDX 160 iE review

 

Earphones that bleed style and booming sound

Slick, practical design ; Many ear tips included ; Full sound delivery

Inline controls iOS-only

Beyerdynamic's sub-$150 earphones provide fine qualities aplenty. From the sound quality, to comfort and best of all, the price (and the included goodies), the iDX 160 iE are a smart buy for music lovers.

In case you've never heard of Beyerdynamic, it's a German headphone company that makes some very good sounding headphones, some of which are very expensive.

"Not worth the bucks!"

 

After reading all the reviews about the sound quality from these earphones, I was really excited to purchase them! I got it before a trip and it sounded great! However, less than halfway through my trip (about a month of owning it), the sound was...

A Nice Budget-Friendly Bass-Focused IEM

 

Disclaimer: the DX 160 iE was provided free of charge by Beyerdynamic for review purposes. No monetary exchange or donations were involved throughout the process. Starting off simply, let's discuss the accessories that are included in the packaging....

EDM friendly, solid aluminum construction, low-tangle low-microphonic cable, plenty of accessories

Recessed treble and mids, questionable cord design

German Quality!

 

I own a Bose IE2 and these are much better and cheaper than Bose. The Bose which cost so much more will never give you satisfactory lower end satisfaction. Now, I'm not a bass head and these perfectly fit where they are supposed to. Clarity across the...
