    Man these IEMs get cheaper every week!

  • Worth skipping the 200s and 300s and just fork out a week of pay on the 600s?

    • +2

      Always skip 300s and 900s.

      The 200s are a good budget option.

      The 600s are for those who can stretch their budget.

      • I'll skip food for the next week. Need to lose some weight anyway.

    $935 ie900 is absolute insanity

    • +1

      Most reviews I saw recommend the 600s over the 900s. Are the 900s that much more superior?

      • Most people would like the ie600 more, that's right. It's tuned to a more normal sound signature.

        The ie900 only does one thing better than that's bass. It's for a niche audience that have figured out what they like later in the lobby. I'd recommend going to demo them to see which one you prefer.

      • All those reviews were written at a time,
        when the IE900 was $2K and the IE600 was still over $1K.

        So back then, the IE900 was not 'worth' 2x the price of the IE600.

        However, IE900 is now less than the price of the IE600 from back then.

        IE900 improves on everything that the IE600 lacked,
        while keeping the same slamming bass (as IE600)
        but a little more tamer treble (than the IE600).

        IE600 is a worthy buy, if you like your music a bit more "V-shaped",
        but the bass & treble on the IE600 is just great;
        it's just the treble can be more 'spicy' depending on the music and recording quality.

        The IE600 mid-range is not so resolving, but you get a fun, enjoyable IEM experience,
        and the IEMs are built well - metal body, small & lightweight.

        IE600 and IE900 cable sucks.

        • Thanks. I stuck with the 600s. My aging ears probably can’t tell the $400 difference anyways.

          • @cnut: IE900 have slightly better bass at the cost of extremely recessed mids VS IE600 (Like more recessed than stuff like U12t and U4s)

            Technically they are about even, with the IE900 having slightly better bass dynamics.

            I'd still consider the ie600 if it was 935
            but not the ie900 even if it was 545.

    Oh wow I raised this ie600 deal yesterday and the system automatically merge it to the eBay low quantity deal thread. I'm glad this one is not as it's a great deal.

  • I have been eyeing the Focal Bathys and is IE600 better with a good passive seal and sound quality?

    I have Bose QC2 and Sony xm3 headphones for noise cancellation.

    • +1

      Completely different, one has ANC - depends on use case.

      I own the ie600 and bathys and use the ie600 more often, but on planes and trains the Bathys is much better.

  • +2

    Holly faark, the IE600 is a damn bargain.

    I dont wanna check how much I paid for mine :(

  • It is out of stock now.

    • IE900 is OOS
      but
      IE600 is still available.

      • -1

        huge difference in sound quality between the two.
        ie900 at sub 1k is a huge steal
        ie600 at $600 is very meh.

        • I agree on IE900 having a huge difference.
          ( I have IE600 and demo'd IE900 a month ago)

          It's just that when I heard the IE900,
          it sounded very similar to ThieAudio Monarch,
          but IE900 has better bass and treble.

          For my hearing,…

          Treble: IE900 > IE600 > Monarch
          Mids: Monarch > IE900 > IE600
          Bass: IE900 > IE600 > Monarch

            @whyisave: https://squig.link/?share=Sennheiser_IE_600,Sennheiser_IE_900,ThieAudio_Monarch_MkII_(S2)

            I own the Monarch mk3 and ie600, and have heard mk2 and ie900.

            The ie600 is actually U shaped (not V shaped, the midrange is fine, this is a misconception) while the ie900 has… massively recessed mids…

            Its not close to the Monarch at all, the Monarchs are commonly considered to be the best iems for Midrange and Vocals, and have no mid recession at all.

            This is pretty much the main issue with the ie900, the upper midrange is a giant crater, which results in stuff like vocals and acoustics being recessed.

            The IE600 is much better tuned overall. I would even prefer IE200 tuning over IE900, but IE200 is technically weak.

            (IE900 is better if you like recessed mids, which is a perfect valid preference, but the the 64audio stuff is much better in essentially every way for that)

              I really don't like looking at these kinds of graphs, because
              - I don't understand them (haha)
              - I don't care for them (my ears will tell me what I like)
              - I've found reviews which were based on graphs,
              but not on the musicality of that item.

              The only 'graph' that I found I could relate to and trust,
              was the graph, my ex- Nuraphone and Nuraloop ,
              created of my hearing, when those headphones came out, before Covid.

              It was spot-on.
              It's how I liked my music.
              I also created those graphs / profiles, with friends, and it also showed their listening preference.

              In any case, I enjoyed looking at what you linked,
              because I learnt more new things about those IEMs,
              and also, how to 'read the graphs', according to the Squig.link tutorial at the beginning !

              main issue with the ie900, the upper midrange is a giant crater, which results in stuff like vocals and acoustics being recessed.

              I only spent about 15-minutes with the IE900,
              and from that brief time, and with only the music that I know well,
              I could not discern much difference between what I was used to.
              So, yeah, with initial impressions, I found IE900 an 'improvement' on the IE600,
              but not at those prices that IE900 commanded.

              I still found the IE600 a better IEM and better value.

              (IE900 is better if you like recessed mids, which is a perfect valid preference, but the the 64audio stuff is much better in essentially every way for that)

              I agree about the 64Audio IEMs.
              My first and last time with them,
              was a month or so ago,
              trying U4S, U12T and Volur.
              I tried the Volur, without knowing anything about it,
              nor the price.
              It was pretty damn good.
              Then, I heard the price…ooofth !

        • +2

          I'd say the pricing could even be reversed here, the ie900 is not anywhere near competitive at $900, I wouldn't even take it for $545 due to the massively lacking midrange.

          Whereas the ie600 could be at 1k and still worth it if you wanted a TOTL U-shape - it's not a V shaped tuning, the midrange isn't recessed at all.

            @HPdeskjet: @HPdeskjet its very interesting how we have very different takes. I wonder if you listened to the same products almost.
            I'm not a big Sennheiser fan. I was greatly unimpressed by their high end offerings: hd700's hd800's 820's etc. In my opinion they peaked at the hd600/650. and side note the ie80's were awesome.

            But i stand by it said, there is a huge difference between these two IEM's (600 and 900). I was not expecting anything from the ie900's when I tested them. But they were really really good. Great form factor, and beautifully built. I didn't pick up on any issues in the mid range. Normally thats the first thing one picks up on when trying headphones.
            honestly i wanted to buy them right then and there, but they were $2.1kaud. it's a Low bar but i think its the best product Sennheiser make at the moment at $1k mark.
            regarding the ie600's I had high hopes that it would sound similar. and being more obtainable i could snatch them up.
            It's not even close. it was a good 4 or so months ago, I was actually kinda pissed about it.
            i walked out with a pair of Meze advars because they were very close to the ie900's if not better.

            • @jake93s: sorry for the text wall, but I should explain what I'm basing my viewpoints on technically.

              its very interesting how we have very different takes.

              fair enough, difference preferences different takes.

              I just think the 64 audio stuff does what the ie900 is tuned for better, making it not worth it

              while the ie600 is at the top of its class for what it's tuned for, making it worth it.

              I was greatly unimpressed by their high end offerings: hd700's hd800's 820's etc, sennheiser peaked at hd600/650.

              This is actually my exact position on the ie900 vs ie600, price bracket does not indicate how good something is.

              Both the hd700 and hd800 have a bunch of tuning quirks to put emphasis on technical ability, but this makes the timbre sound quite bad VS something like the hd600.

              In the the same vein, the ie900 uses a large upper midrange dip (2-6k by 6-8db) as a tuning trick to simulate much more impressive technical chops like soundstage, but makes acoustics sound unnatural VS something like the monarchs or even ie600.

              That's not bad per se, something like the U12t does this extremely well and ends up at the top of most review lists by still having very good timbre - I just think the IE900's implementation of this is not the best.

              regarding the ie600's I had high hopes that it would sound similar. and being more obtainable i could snatch them up.

              the IE600 are excellent neutral U-shaped iems, but that does not make them excellent mid dip iems (ie900), which something like the U4s excel at doing that - you buy the ie200 for a mini ie600 because of similar tuning, but you cannot buy the ie600 for a mini ie900 because of different tuning.

              It's not even close. it was a good 4 or so months ago, I was actually kinda pissed about it.

              that's fair enough again, tuning preference is tuning preference, I respect that.

                @HPdeskjet: Couldn't agree more mate.
                I wish i could have listened to the ie900's for a lot longer. I would have picked up on those faults.
                Certainly it had those sparkly mids which on first listening (especially with the tracks I listen to) might make it shine more than it otherwise should.
                -" price bracket does not indicate how good something is."
                Couldn't agree more. I think this is why its SO important for people to go out and try audio products before purchase. i've listened to some very expensive headphones, that left me questioning reality… in a bad way. There is a lot of 5k+ headphones that are only exceptional in their price.
                Also personal preference plays a massive role too.

                100%

                What the IE900 was priced at, the 64Audio IEMs were much better tuned.

                something like the U12T does this extremely well

                In my 15-minutes with the U12T,
                I found it pretty 'meh'.
                Good, but not great.
                I didn't put it through different music styles, etc.
                It was more resolving that U4S, but not as good as the Volur, to my hearing.

                the IE600 are excellent neutral U-shaped iems, but that does not make them excellent mid dip iems (ie900), which something like the U4s excel at doing that

                Funny you say that, because I've been listening to the U4S all weekend.
                Pretty good, and it's the kind of tuning that I'm enjoying a lot.
                Clean bass, midrange with not too much treble (I'd like it a little more, but it's OK).
                U4S is more enjoyable than IE600 for sure,
                but with triple the price !
                However, IE600 has better treble…but based on recordings, can be too much treble.

  • The ie600 does not sound as good as my 15-year old B&O A8 with questyle M12.
