SENNHEISER’S IE 800 S IN-EAR MASTERPIECE
The press release reads:
Audio specialist Sennheiser is once again redefining compact, take-anywhere audiophile sound – with a new generation of the groundbreaking IE800 ear-canal headphones.
Engineered and hand-crafted in Germany, Sennheiser says the new IE 800 S features improved acoustics with brilliant trebles and a refined bass sound.
Manuel Ricke who looks after 'Audiophile' products at Sennheiser told StereoNET:
With the original IE 800, we set a new standard with the creation of genuinely audiophile-grade earphones. Now, we are taking that original vision even further with the new IE 800 S.
According to Sennheiser, the Extra Wide Band (XWB) driver has been further refined, and the proprietary 7mm transducer delivers exceptional detail, lifelike imaging and brilliant treble and improved bass response.
An acoustic phenomenon known as the 'masking effect' has apparently been overcome in the new model thanks to Sennheiser's patented dual-chamber absorver system they call 'D2CA'.
The absorber system removes the energy from any masking resonances to prevent unwanted peaks, making even the finest nuances of sound audible.
The new IE 800 S look has been subtly refreshed with the ceramic housing being finished in an elegant, contemporary matt black finish and treated with a premium scratch-resistant coating.
To ensure a perfect fit for all ears, the IE 800 S is supplied with Comply Foam tips. The tips ensure a custom fit within the ear canal.
Finally, Sennheiser's IE 800 S is supplied with a 3.5mm standard cable, as well as 4,4mm Pentaconn and 2.5mm balanced connectors.
With consideration to the traveling audiophile, a leather carry case is also supplied.
The IE 800 S will be available in November and will sell locally for $1,599.95 RRP.
