Beyerdynamic iDX 160 iE with mic
What we think in the Inner Sanctum:
We have to admit, the $120 - $180 price range has a number of strong contenders, but the iDX 160 is one of our favorites. A premium in-ear headset with Apple-certified smartphone remote, the 160 has fantastic sound from the bottom to the top, a super-quiet flat cable and convenient Apple remote.
An easy recommendation for iPhone users.
From the manufacturer:
Efficient, powerful neodymium drivers deliver fantastic sound, making this headphone one of the best in its class: deep low-end, clear mids and transparent treble set the iDX 160 iE apart from its competitors.
WORKS ON YOUR IPHONE AND OTHER MOBILE DEVICES
Being an officially licenced product, you can be sure, that the iDX 160 iE works smoothly on your iPod, iPhone or iPad. With the three-button remote and mic, you can use your iDX 160 iE to control calls and media playback. All functions (except the volume up and down) work on other current smartphones and tablet computers as well, including most current Android devices. Not campatible with Windows smartphones and tablet computers.
PERFECT FIT AND ISOLATION
Wearing comfort, isolation of ambient noise and a deep bass-response are crucial for any in-ear headphones. The iDX 160 iE achieves all three of these with ease, coming supplied with one of the biggest choices of eartips available: 5 pairs of bowl-shaped types, 1 pair of double-flange types and 1 pair of triple-flange silicone types ensure that you can enjoy your music the way you like it. In addition, should you prefer foam types then the original Comply™ eartips (type T-400) provide a great fit, reducing ambient noise and enhancing bass – right down to the very low-end.
FLAT CABLES - AS LONG AS YOU NEED THEM TO BE
The iDX 160 iE is supplied with a flat, tangle-free cable for easy handling and convenience. Should you need this to stretch a little further, an extension cable is also included with the headphones.
MATERIALS AND DESIGN
