The 8 drivers combine to produce a pretty flat and balanced sound. The bass is tight and controlled. Extension is deep yet is not bloated in any way. The mids are full and has a good warmth to it, so vocals are very clear without being too forward or overpowering. There is a lot of detail that can be heard from the highs, yet the frequencies are tuned just right to avoid harshness. The accuracy makes these great not just for music enjoyment, but also as reference in-ears for mixing/monitoring. See More
You get two sets of headphone cables. The stock cable is the standard Westone cable which provides great sound, along with the convenience of an in-line remote and microphone. For an optimal music listening experience however, you can swap out to the premium ALO cable which helps to bring out the best sound from these headphones thanks to the premium materials used in its construction.

These are perfect for those who do not want to greatly compromise detail and accuracy in favor of a fun listening experience. 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

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
