Sennheiser has announced three pro level ear canal style headphones, the IE 6, IE 7, and top of the range IE 8. With this range you can emulate your favorite music artist as the concept behind this range is the same as the professionals use. They use dynamic transducers that cover the entire frequency range with one system which not only eliminates distortion but separates “tricky basslines and thunderous sound effects.”
With a robust and functional design all the models provide good isolation for precise reproduction (the top-of-the-range IE 8 can reach up to 26 dB of noise blocking attenuation) and have Kevlar strengthened cables.
The IE 6 is aimed at the bass enthusiast with passive attenuation up to 20 dB and a frequency response of 10 to 18,000 Hz, while the IE 7 classic has a frequency response of 10 to 19,000 Hz and attenuation up to 20 dB.
The top of the range IE 8 can can completely customize the frequency response to your listening preferences with a frequency response range from 10 to 20,000 Hz.
All the headphones have replaceable pads, transport case and a number of different ear adapters. The IE 6 and 7 will be available in March and the IE 8 in April.
