The bass is full, has great depth and hits with a lot of power and slam. The mids are also full and forward. Vocals, guitars and keys sound very clear and they are very easy to appreciate. The highs have a good amount of detail but are slightly rolled off, making these sound smooth. See More
The SE846 comes with two extra sound filters which you can swap the stock one to. There is a set of filters for a more bassy sound, and another set for a more treble-centric sound signature. The filters can be swapped out using the included tool to open up the earpieces. With this feature, you will be able to actually change the sound to further suit your preference. See More
The ear tips are a step up from the common silicone ear tips on the market today. The part that comes into contact with your ear is made out of soft, flexible, high quality silicone. The inside canal of the ear tips however is made out of a firmer plastic material, with a metal mesh in the middle. This combination allows the ear tips to create a very good seal when worn, reducing sound leakage/bleed while also ensuring optimal sound delivery. See More
Instead of using metal or plastic in the construction of the earpieces, Sennheiser has used a special ceramic material on the IE 800 which is scratch resistant. This helps to keep the weight of the in-ears down, yet can still withstand use and abuse pretty well. The cable on the other hand is very high quality and covered with Kevlar reinforcement for added durability. See More
