The ink isn’t even dry yet on the deal and Sennheiser have announced their most expensive earbuds ever; and that’s saying something because we thought the IE 800 S were pretty expensive when they launched. Having just announced the sale of their consumer electronics business to Sonova, the German headphone manufacturer have also introduced the new Sennheiser IE 900 earbuds which will retail for £1099 / AU$2099 or $1,600 USD.

That is without question a lot of money for earbuds, but Sennheiser are not alone when it comes to really expensive earphones in the audiophile headphone category. Audeze didn’t even flinch announcing their new Euclid closed-back earbuds which are $1,300.

The Audeze earphone features custom built 18mm planar magnetic drivers, precision milled aluminum housing and both wired and Bluetooth connectivity.

The new Sennheiser IE 900 earbuds utilize the brand new X3R transducer which is a “refined version” of the 7mm Extra Wide Band transducers in their flagship Sennheiser IE 800. An improved “triple chamber absorber system” allows you to hear “even the subtlest nuances of sound.”

Does that translate to “hyper detailed” for the rest of us?

Each earbud is manufactured from a single block of milled aluminium by a specialist team in Wedemark, Germany, with the company’s engineers even pairing up the left and right side earphones by hand to ensure optimal quality and performance.

So what do you get in the box aside from the Sennheiser IE 900 earbuds?

Sennheiser provide a standard cable with a 3.5mm gold-plated connector, plus 4.4mm and 2.5mm balanced cables. There’s also individually adjustable ear hooks and a choice of silicone and memory foam ear adaptors in three sizes for those of us with huge ear canals.

At $1,600 — these better be some really special earbuds because that seems rather expensive for something that is not a custom fit.

The Sennheiser IE 900 earbuds will be available in June 2021 for purchase.
