Sennheiser Goes For Broke With A Pair Of $1,300 Ultra-Hi-Fi Earbuds

Sennheiser has long been on the cutting edge of audio technology, and the German company’s latest product is aiming to become the gold standard of in-ear headphones.

The new Sennheiser IE 900 earphones are described by the company as the new benchmark in portable audio, and we’re inclined to agree. The headphones’ housings are precision-milled from a block of aluminum, and the headphones are then hand-assembled in Germany. At the heart of the buds is Sennheiser’s dynamite 7mm TrueResponse transducer combined with the new X3R system that’s made up of three Helmholtz resonator chambers and a downstream acoustic vortex that have been milled right into the solid aluminum core. These technologies combine to eliminate resonance peaks, while an acoustic back-volume provides a clear separation of lows and mids. Another clever bit of tech is Sennheiser’s XWB driver, which is able to pick up subtle details in audio tracks to provide the most lifelike natural reproduction around. The IE 900 earbuds include six different ear adapters and three gold-plated Fidelity+ MMCX connectors for the ultimate in both comfort and listening versatility, and they’re available to pre-order now from Sennheiser for $1,300.
