Sennheiser have released new in-ear headphones called the IE 300 which are promising a premium sound experience, similar to headphones from its much higher spec “Audiophile” range.
The IE 300 uses a refined version of Sennheiser’s German manufactured 7mm Extra Wide Band (XWB) transducer to create an enriched sound with a frequency response of 6 Hz – 20 kHz. An optimised membrane foil is said to minimise natural resonances and total harmonic distortion (THD < 0.08% at 1 kHz, 94 dB), while a transducer back volume minimises reflection within the housing. A resonator chamber removes masking resonances in the ear canal for better treble.
The headphones are also engineered to effectively limit ambient noise.
The cable is a durable 3.5mm item that is reinforced with para-aramid and can be replaced if needed, ensuring the life of the headphones can be extended. Balanced cables with 2.5mm or 4.4 connectors are also available as optional accessories.
Coming in a premium carry case the IE 300s are available from March 2021 (Australia)
Price: $470 AUD* ($299.95 USD / £259.00 GBP)
