Sennheiser’s IE 6
Old Lyme, CT (March 20, 2009)–Sennheiser has debuted its IE 6, IE 7 and IE 8 ear-canal headphones.
“With the IE 6, IE 7 and IE 8, music fans can enjoy the same incredibly accurate sound reproduction their favorite artists rely upon in concert,” explains Eric Stubbert, industry team manager for consumer electronics and telecommunications products at Sennheiser Electronic Corporation. “Each of these incredibly durable in-ear headphones also suppresses an impressive amount of ambient noise for an even more amazing listening experience.”
The IE Series ear-canal headphones are designed with dynamic transducers that cover the entire frequency range with one system–basslines and sound effects separate themselves in the mix. This reportedly eliminates the distortion that detracts from the integrity of the original source material, even at high sound-pressure levels. Ear adapters in different sizes are said to ensure the IE headphones fit the user’s ear canal, are comfortable to wear, and effectively seal off ambient noise. The top-of-the-range IE 8 can reach up to 26 dB of noise-blocking attenuation.
The cables are strengthened with Kevlar, and the headphones are made from durable materials. Each headphone is also equipped with a transport case, small cleaning tool and a cable clip.
