Sennheiser Announces IE 800 and Sports Series Earphones Co-developed by Adidas
Sennheiser has launched the IE 800 high-end earphones, the company's most compact audiophile offering to date, along with its Sports series earphones in Singapore today.
Designed and developed in Germany to the strictest quality standards, the IE 800 comes enveloped in a scratch-resistant ceramic housing, and offers brilliant trebles, precise bass response, and a lifelike sound image with a frequency response of 5 to 46,500Hz. The housing is made of skin-friendly ceramic, while the ear sleeves are made of silicone. Also, to ensure an ideal fit, Sennheiser has developed new ear adapters with an oval shape, while the protective mesh on the ear cushions effectively protects the drivers against dirt contamination.
Equipped with a specially developed Extra Wide Band (XWB) driver with a diameter of just 7mm, it is the smallest wide-band sound transducer currently available in dynamic headphones. Featuring a vented magnet system which debuted on Sennheiser's HD 700 high-end headphones, the IE 800 incorporates a dual-chamber system which absorbs the energy of the resonance, so any music, even one with the finest nuances, becomes audible.
Priced at S$1,139, the IE 800 retails at the Sennheiser Concept Store at Marina Square, as well as Stereo outlets at Ion Orchard and Plaza Singapura.
Also, Sennheiser has teamed up with Adidas to develop its latest Sports series earphones. These new earphones promise top-quality sound and optimal wearing comfort, even in the most extreme workout sessions. They feature a Slide-to-Fit system which guarantee the earphones stay in place while doing vigorous workouts. Also integrated is the water protection system, which shields the earphones from sweat and rain. The earphones can even be rinsed under the tap after use.
The PMX 685i, PX 685i, and MX 685 provide users a higher awareness of surrounding noises, and are suited for those who train outdoors, while the OCX 685i and CX 685, which feature passive noise-cancelling abilities, are ideal for those who focus on their music during their workout.
