Sennheiser USA | www.sennheiserusa.com Sennheiser has debuted its IE 6 (pictured), IE 7 and IE 8 ear-canal headphones, bringing pro-grade audio quality that performers use onstage to all music enthusiasts. The IE Series is designed with dynamic transducers that cover the entire frequency range with one system — basslines and sound effects separate themselves clearly in the mix. This eliminates the distortion that detracts from the integrity of the original source material, even at high sound-pressure levels.
Ear adapters in different sizes reportedly ensure the IE headphones fit the user’s ear canal perfectly, are comfortable to wear and effectively seal off ambient noise. Good isolation further enhances precise audio reproduction. The topof- 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.
