beyerdynamic just released their top iDX in-ear series headphone for $200. The new iDX 200 iE combines all the advantages of previous iDX 120 iE and iDX 160 iE earphones with new drivers, and a high-end microphone for both iPhone or Android smartphones.
The iDX 200 iE features new drivers with moving coils made of extra-fine copper wire. The sound transducers respond to any change in voltage at lightning speed, and resolve high frequencies to deliver an incredibly transparent, clean sound. The bass and mids benefit from changed filter tuning, and the elimination of resistors draws additional power to create an incredibly balanced and efficient in-ear.
Instead of aluminium, the housing is made of a new alloy that consists of 86 percent titanium. This high-tech metal, which is used in airplane construction and medical technology, is light-weight and extraordinarily durable. Its resistance to corrosion and extreme temperatures ensure use of the iDX 200 iE for many years. The detachable cables is 40 cm long and it can be extended with a 90 cm cable. Also a new material in the cable improves the durability massively and it reduces cable noises effectively.
Since a proper fit is essential for in-ear listening, beyerdynamic includes silicone attachments in five different sizes, plus two pairs of double and triple flange ear tips with soft plastic ribs to ensure a comfortable and secure fit without excessive pressure. The memory foam takes on the shape of the ear canal, keeping ambient noise out, and the rich sound in.
The high-quality hands-free microphone in the cable allows you to make calls with flawless sound quality. You can pause the music and take an incoming call at the touch of a button – whether you have an Android or Windows smartphone, or an iPhone. With the Apple certification, the iDX 200 iE works reliably with iPods, iPhones and iPads.
