DX 160 iE

Article Number: 716286

Premium in-ear headphones

Also available with Apple-certified smartphone remote - iDX 160 iE >>

Sound

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 DX 160 iE apart from its competitors.

Perfect fit and isolation

Wearing comfort, isolation of ambient noise and a deep bass-response are crucial for any in-ear headphones. The DX 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 DX 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

Full-metal-housings, attractive anodized surfaces, shiny aluminium rings and careful attention to detail make the DX 160 iE a headphone with quality you can see and touch. Sturdy design, rugged TPE-material and a 45° angled plug ensure your earphones will stand the test of time, no matter how you wear them.

Share music with your friends

Simply unplug your extension cable and plug in our adapter to share your music with friends or colleagues, quickly and easily.

The DX 160 iE is compatible with all current portable devices equipped with a 3.5 mm jack output (including smartphones, tablet computers and laptops).

With the DX 160 iE the company succeeded in creating a sound wonder, which is an insider’s tip due to its balanced and detailed sound. Regarding the appearance, the beyerdynamic DX 160 iE is a little bit simpler than its competitors, but regarding the finish as well as look and feel, this headphone is top league. At a price of 99 Euro this in-ear headphone is surely no bargain, but for such an excellent sound it is worth every cent!

For large auditoriums there are customised microphone concepts, for individual ears unique headphone are manufactured. The lot size of one becomes a core message at the company’s headquarters in Heilbronn. The maximum of individuality is almost invisible. On request the new DX 120 iE and DX 160 iE are supplied via a voucher for “earmoulds“. Instead of the standard ear tips the hearing aid acoustician will take a moulding of the inner ear. It does not hurt and it does not take long, but it will ensure a perfect fit and the highest sound gain to the eardrum.

When I tested the headphones for the first time, I noticed immediately how much they attenuate ambient noise, which does not penetrate any more. Whether on the train or in the city, you are completely isolated and can concentrate on the music. Another, important factor, in my view, is that other people need not listen to my music. With these headphones this is no problem. As good as they attenuate the noise from the outside, they also attenuate the noise from the music to the outside, so that no one needs to feel disturbed. About the sound quality one can hardly argue. Clear sound and rich bass distinguish these headphones from other, cheaper models and leave nothing to be desired.

Conclusion:
Those who are looking for high-quality manufactured in-ear headphones with an excellent sound quality should take a look at this model anyway. Due to the price-performance ratio, these headphones are hard to beat!"

The statements of a manufacturer rarely meet the actual product properties. But with the DX 160 iE it is different. There are a few features which can be added to the rather plain description:  The sound of the beyerdynamic is balanced, not to say fantastic. Precise is another adjective to describe the sound properties of the DX 160 iE. The proportion of highs, mids and bass can be referred to as perfect.

[...]

With a product of this quality an evaluation is easy: The beyerdynamic DX 160 iE can be recommended in every way. Of course, the balanced and detailed sound is the most important feature. The other product properties also meet the high quality standards. Be it the workmanship, the good look and feel or the extensive accessories – there are no grounds for criticism. The price/performance ratio is also excellent: there is no better in-ear model for 100 Euro.

With a price of only 99 Euro for the DX 160 iE beyerdynamic offers an extraordinary package. The  range of supplied accessories (8 eartips, extension cable and cable clip, Y-adapter for another headphone and bag) is above the average, the comfort for wearing is good and the sound is one of the best and most neutral which we heard in the price range of 100 Euro and above.
