Sennheiser breathes and lives audio, so this brand always comes up with excellent quality products that offer audio solutions that work. Every accessory or speaker introduced by the company aims to make a difference in sound listening experiences. Most audiophiles can attest to this claim, especially since Sennheiser has been around for almost eight decades.
Consumer audio devices like the new Sennheiser IE 600 Earbuds prove why Sennheiser is a name to be reckoned with. The latest from the company is a pair of Sennheiser IE 600 Earbuds that promises to deliver neutral sound reproduction, accurate natural sound, and unmatched tuning. These audio advantages are housed in rugged earphone housings produced via 3D printing.
The IE 600 cases are made of ZR01 amorphous zirconium and have been 3D-printed. The metal may appear like glass, but it is not delicate. Compared to hard steel, this one comes with bend resistance but is three times as hard. It is the same material NASA used on its Mars Rover, specifically, the drilling head, so you can probably describe the pair’s durability as out of this world.
The pair looks tough and it really is, starting with the surface that never scratches nor corrodes. Scratch resistance is possible with the several elaborate treatment processes the material went through. The earbuds’ resilience can be expected as you use the pair each day and for the years to come.
Sennheiser IE 600 Features
Sennheiser’s IE 600 earbuds have been manufactured meticulously. It demonstrates that the Sennheiser IE product lineup is separate from the other audio accessories from the brand. The pair is made at the Sonova Consumer Hearing’s transducer production facilities based in Ireland, following top-notch standards. It is meant to exceed expectations, and the pair can with its reliable channel matching, anti-corrosion design, excellent acoustic, and more.
Sennheiser Audiophile’s Product Manager Jermo Köhnke said: “At the audiophile development team, we intently listen to the feedback of our incredibly passionate customers. The IE 600 delivers a neutral reference tuning in combination with our industry-leading miniature transducer technology.” The company did listen to the feedback of its loyal consumers, so it knows how to cater to their mobile audio demands. He added, “The paradigm-shifting acoustic performance is appropriately clad in highest-performance amorphous zirconium. The IE 600 will be a reference for the most demanding mobile audio enthusiasts.”
Beyond the aesthetics that bring virtual delight, the pair can offer excellent sound, thanks to precision-molded resonator chambers, innovative acoustic back volume, and intimate voicing, especially during vocal performances. High-fidelity sound is delivered by dual chambers that can mask resonances and conceal higher frequencies. Sennheiser implemented its own TrueResponse transducer technology, which is simple a 7mm driver. The tiny driver allows ultra-low distortion, extra-wide frequency range, and highly detailed resolution.
The Sennheiser Promise
The IE 600 may be small, but it offers a big sound with excellent stability. The ergonomic housing makes the pair comfortable even for all-day wearing. Each bud is almost tailor-made because you can choose from either the memory foam or silicone earbud tips that fit most ear sizes. In addition, Sennheiser is offering three sizes so you can comfortably seal the sound. The pair also promises flexibility with the adjustable ear hooks, resulting in reliable comfort even if you are using it the whole day.
The IE 600 comes with a recessed MMCX connector for better guidance and stability. The design of the earphones and the cables makes sense as the cable is more secured. The pair can support 4.88mm and 3.5mm so you can also use the earbuds with a wide variety of audio sources, including hi-fi components capable of balanced outputs. Sennheiser has spent hours of research and development into this pair, so you can expect an accurate low-end response, true-to-life voicing, steep bass slope, and an overall optimized acoustic system.
The Sennheiser IE 600 will be up for purchase for $699.95. That is expensive for a pair of wired in-ear earbuds, but apart from the premium audio quality it offers, it is made of ZR01 amorphous zirconium. Just say it is a material NASA uses in the Mars Rover, so it sounds cool, rugged, and hardcore.
True audiophiles will love the Sennheiser IE 600 even it does not offer wireless or Bluetooth connectivity. The wired in-ear pair’s use of aerospace materials makes it highly coveted. Of course, we always prefer function over form, but this pair combines the two perfectly.
