After several years of waiting, the new wave of “hi-fi” intras from Sennheiser is finally here, driven by the IE 300s and a few in-house innovations. And the least we can say is that the result is there…
It’s hard to reinvent the wheel on a type of product as proven as a pair of hi-fi wired intras. And yet, Sennheiser brings some welcome “new things” to the table with its IE 300, placing this model as a paragon of comfort, and simply irreproachable in terms of design. The IE 300s also make a very solid copy in terms of sound performance. This is a successful model, which will delight those who are looking for very good wired intras.
- Extremely rich and defined sound reproduction.
- Impeccable distortion management.
- An irreproachable design, both at the level of the headphones and the cable.
- Feeling of comfort and impeccable support.
- Slight surplus of energy in the high mids/treble.
- Tiny lack of hold in the bass.
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude prices from shops whose the VAT policy is not clear (known as “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).
The 1More Triple Drivers offer excellent value for money, combining reliable construction, beautiful and robust materials, complete accessories and controls (iOS and Android compatible), excellent comfort and very good sound reproduction quality. We only deplore slightly garish mids, and a non-angled mini-jack.
