The new Sennheiser IE 300 In-Ear headphones offer durability, comfort, and most importantly, great sound quality. These headphones feature a refined version of Sennheiser's acclaimed 7mm Extra Wide Band (XWB) transducer, delivering a detailed, natural listening experience. Priced at $299.95 USD (299 EUR), the new in-ears have been meticulously crafted to ensure a well-balanced sound signature, keeping a professional audio-inspired design.

Passionate audio enthusiasts demand a detailed high-fidelity listening experience not just at home, but everywhere they go. Sennheiser’s new IE 300 features a refined version of the brand's 7mm Extra Wide Band (XWB) transducer, manufactured at the company’s headquarters in Germany, ensuring superior sound quality and sonic accuracy. 

According to Sennheiser, every component has been carefully tuned to refine the listening experience: This includes an optimized membrane foil that minimizes natural resonances and total harmonic distortion (THD < 0.08% at 1 kHz, 94 dB), a transducer back volume designed to minimize reflection within the housing, and a resonator chamber that removes masking resonances in the ear canal for more refined and detailed treble. Offering an expanded frequency response, the IE 300 is described as delivering "clear high frequencies with a subtle and warm musicality that brings greater intimacy to vocals."

"When you are passionate about audio, details matter. That’s why we meticulously crafted the IE 300 to let listeners hear every nuance in their music," says Jermo Köhnke, Product Manager at Sennheiser. "The IE 300 is designed to be a companion on the go, while still providing a superior audio experience, no matter your surroundings."

The IE 300 was also designed to offer exceptional durability and comfort, inspired by the world of professional audio. Its ergonomic features include individually adjustable flexible ear hooks, as well as silicone and memory foam ear adaptors in three sizes (S/M/L). This not only ensures a perfectly secure fit and wearing comfort for long listening sessions, but also offers optimum noise isolation, guaranteeing that audio enthusiasts can enjoy undisturbed listening even in busy environments or on the move.

Finally, the IE 300 in-ears are supplied with a 3,5mm cable reinforced with para-aramid for outstanding stability even after thousands of bend cycles and can easily be replaced for optimal flexibility. For additional strain relief, the high-quality gold-plated Fidelity+ MMCX connector is seated in a recessed, 4.8mm-wide socket in the housing. Balanced cables with 2.5mm or 4.4 connectors are also available as optional accessories. A premium carry case is included for safe and convenient storage.

The Sennheiser IE 300 will be available starting from January 19, 2021.
