About Sennheiser Headphones

One of the world’s foremost headphone brands, Sennheiser traces its heralded roots back to 1945, when engineers from the University of Hannover formed a laboratory to develop new microphone and headphone technologies. In 1968, Sennheiser released the world’s first open-back headphones, the HD414. Setting new standards for sound quality and ergonomic fit, Sennheiser went on to sell over ten million HD414!

Today, Sennheiser continues their tradition of pushing the envelope of headphone driver and ergonomic design, putting out models like the stunning HD800S and HD820, with their unique ring-radiator drivers.  And of course, who could forget Sennheiser’s ventures into electrostatic headphones, with both the original 90’s-era Orpheus system, and it’s newer cousin, both of which produce effortless sound with lifelike warmth.

Our Take

The Sennheiser IE800S is a well-balanced, smooth sounding IEM which makes a natural companion for owners of the HD800S full-size headphones. The IE800 S comes with a nice variety of cable connectors and tips, and its’ small size and light weight make it easy to wear for hours.
