    Sennheiser’s new IE 600 breaks new ground for neutral sound reproduction

    For sophisticated audiophiles, the tiniest details count. With the new Sennheiser IE 600, a lifetime of listening pleasure starts at an atomic level in the specific materials used to create its ultra-tough earphone housings, while meticulous craftsmanship and tuning ensure an exquisitely natural sound. Through a patented 3D printing process, the housings of the IE 600 have been crafted from ZR01 amorphous zirconium, a metal with a glass-like atomic structure that gives it triple the hardness and bend resistance of high-performance steel. One of the only other places ZR01 amorphous zirconium is used — besides ultra-high-end products like the IE 600 — is in the aerospace industry, such as in the drilling head of the NASA Mars Rover, where ultimate toughness in extreme conditions is required. Through multiple elaborate treatment processes, a beautiful surface finish is achieved that is extraordinarily resistant against corrosion and scratches. This exceptional resilience ensures the IE 600 can be enjoyed for many years while its distinctive great looks remain undiminished.

    The IE 600 also benefits from the meticulous manufacturing process that is the hallmark of Sennheiser’s IE audiophile earphone family. Designed in Germany, they are manufactured at Sonova Consumer Hearing’s state-of-the-art transducer production facilities in Ireland to the very highest standards. One of the most advanced production lines of its type in the world, this manufacturing facility has a singular purpose: to exceed the expectations of audiophiles with the highest manufacturing standards, like industry-leading channel matching. With ultimate protection against corrosion and marks from wear, the IE 600 was designed to keep delivering flawless acoustic — and visual — joy for decades.

    “At the audiophile development team, we intently listen to the feedback of our incredibly passionate customers. The IE 600 delivers a neutral reference tuning in combination with our industry-leading miniature transducer technology.” says Jermo Köhnke, Product Manager for Sennheiser Audiophile. “The paradigm-shifting acoustic performance is appropriately clad in highest-performance amorphous zirconium. The IE 600 will be a reference for the most demanding mobile audio enthusiasts.”


    Bring your music closer
    Just as distinctive is the IE 600’s exceptional sound performance, with an innovative acoustic back volume and precision-molded resonator chambers. This voicing lends a presence and intimacy that brings listeners closer to the music, allowing them to discover new accents and details. The nozzle houses dual resonator chambers that are the key to the earphones’ high-fidelity sound. Precisely formed to tight tolerances, these chambers make even the finest textures of a listener’s music audible by eliminating masking resonances that – in lesser headphones – can obscure higher frequencies.


    The IE 600 achieves exceptional, virtually distortion-free reproduction of music thanks to Sennheiser’s TrueResponse transducer, a single 7 mm driver responsible for the extra-wide frequency range and ultra-low distortion of these earphones. Within the IE 600, this system and the acoustic back volume has been tuned for a tonally neutral, intimate and emotional sound. This ensures a true-to-life voicing that is especially expressive for vocal performances. The acoustic system has also been optimized to produce a steep bass slope resulting in a powerful yet fast and accurate low-end response.

    A tailored fit
    The IE 600 packs big sound into a small, ergonomic package. The gold-plated MMCX connectors are recessed in its housing for greater stability and guidance. They support cable diameters of 4.8 mm and smaller, allowing listeners to plug into a wide range of audio sources as well as hi-fi components with balanced outputs. To allow the choice between para-aramid reinforced unbalanced and balanced cables, both 3.5 mm and 4.4 mm sizes are included with the IE 600. Two different styles of earbud tips — silicone and memory foam — provided in three sizes will establish a comfortable seal in any ear, while flexible, adjustable ear hooks further enhance the long-lasting comfort for extended listening sessions. The Sennheiser IE 600 will be available this Spring/Summer for 699.95 USD (MSRP).

    PHIATON: THE MEANING BEHIND OUR NAME

    In ancient Greece, the letter ‘PHI’ symbolized the ‘golden ratio’, an elegant mathematical concept that has long fascinated great thinkers because it represents symmetry of form that is both structurally balanced and aesthetically pleasing to the senses. The golden ratio has inspired masterpiece works in the mathematics of Fibonacci, the architecture of Leonardo da Vinci, and the musical compositions of Debussy. The use of ‘PHI’ in Phiaton defines a pleasurable listening experience made possible by expertly designed audio technology. ‘TON’ is used in many contexts, but in Phiaton, it has a double meaning. Its inspiration comes both from the English word tone, referring to the character and quality of sound, and from the French use of ton to mean fashionable style. Once you’ve experienced Phiaton, you will prefer our brand for its phenomenal sound quality and design.

    Make the most out of your date night by adding a Cork Genius Bottle Opener to the mix

    No need to tug and yank at your wine to remove that stubborn cork. Just pump, pop and relax on your Valentine’s date night with a Cork Genius Bottle Opener. This wine bottle opener is by far the fastest and easiest way to pop bottles.

    I can’t promise your Cork Genius will chase the clouds away, but I can promise it will make your wine drinking experience easier, tastier, and more fun. Cork Genius Genius Set has everything you need to open your bottle faster, perfectly aerate your wine, and keep it fresh for weeks longer than a regular stopper.

    Genius Wine Opener & Care Set | 4pc

    • PUSH, PUMP, & POP!

    The Cork Genius Opener was designed using a little science to avoid a lot of fuss and bother. The outdated corkscrew design has nothing on this simple, swift, and effective little gadget.

    This easy-to-use air-pump opener wields the power of air-pressure to quickly eject the cork of all standard-sized wine bottles, eliminating all the annoying pulling, tugging, and twisting of a normal corkscrew.

    Simply press the needle into the top of the cork, and give the handle a few pumps. Air will be injected into the bottle and eject the cork, fully intact. It’s effortless and even joyful.

    Push. Pump. Pop! Works every time, in all settings, and makes a great gift for wine-lovers of all ages. The uncomplicated, all-in-one design means no charging, batteries, or extra things to buy.

    • TASTE THE DIFFERENCE!

    This Bottle-Top Aerator uses unique aeration technology to maximize tastes and aromas as you pour. Fits nearly all standard wine bottles.

    Fasten the leak-free spout to the top of the bottle and it will introduce oxygen and evaporate excess sulfates as the wine runs through it. Smoothly pour a perfectly aerated glass of wine without the hassle of a decanter. Then, quickly rinse with soap, then it’s ready to pour or store.

    • LIQUID LEFTOVERS?

    The Vacuum Sealer allows you to pump oxygen out of the bottle to keep your wine fresh for many days longer than an ordinary stopper or cork. Cork Genius combined the pump and the plug to streamline efficiency, preserving wine with no leakage or spillage until you’re ready to enjoy another glass.

    • DON’T BE FOILED AGAIN!

    The elegant and ergonomic design of the Foil Cutter is easy to hold and delivers a restaurant- quality presentation. Cleanly cut the foil in seconds! No more picking, prying, or foil crumbles.

    Break up with your corkscrew and get Cork Genius. Instead of trying to yank and pry your cork, it simply pops it out with air pressure! Opening wine has never felt so right. Cork Genius products are designed using science to make every glass of wine a fun and easy experience. From the first sip to the last, don’t worry about anything besides pouring the next glass.

    About Cork Genius:

    Cork Genius is the smart way to open wine. Created by a team tired of the wine snobbery and ineffective tools available, they set out to determine how to design an easier method to open a bottle of wine. The result had them turning to science, blending chemistry and physics. They used a needle to pierce the cork and injected air underneath, causing it to pop out easily and quickly. Thus, Cork Genius was born. Brilliant!
