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 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

Full-metal-housings, attractive anodized surfaces, shiny aluminium rings and careful attention to detail make the iDX 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.

iDX160 iE: Mainly for iPhone owners

The iDX 160 iE is mainly interesting for iPhone owners.

[...]

The more expensive iDX variant is equipped with a wired remote control, which is worthwhile for iPhone and iPad owners. The flat cable which avoids annoying cable clutter is also worth mentioning. The design with glossy metal and aluminium is also perfect. Due to the ear tips in many sizes, everybody will find the perfect set of silicone ear tips which ensure isolation and good sound. The iDX is convincing in the entire frequency spectrum. Beyerdynamic equipped the headphones with powerful neodymium drivers and a neutral sound, whereas the iDX is the top model among three other model variants (Note from beyerdynamic: in total there are four variants), making it especially detailed and sounding like high end. Especially in the highs the iDX supplies many details which make acoustic recordings, classic or jazz sound lively.

[...]

Those, who prefer a more enhanced sound, may purchase an individual package for another 120 Euro.

[...]

We tested it and were pleased: Regarding secure fit, isolation and sound improvement, there is nothing better than the ear moulds for in ear headphones. The extra charge is worthwhile.

Rating: 1.2 (very good)

"If you're looking for a sleek set of headphones that provide booming, high-quality sound performance and all the features needed for a great in-ear experience at a digestible (...) price, look no further than the Beyerdynamic iDX 160 iE."

[...]

"The iDX 160 iE is quick to make a nice first impression with its design. An appealing trait of in-ear headphones is that they pack a listening experience into a discrete, travel-friendly form factor, and this set takes that to another level with premium and useful features.

[...]

"Capitalizing on the impressive design, the iDX 160 iE are also a capable set of earphones in terms of all-around performance. Once I found the right fit among the large offering of silicon ear tips, the sound performance really started to click (...). Despite the small size of the earpieces, the iDX 160 iE is capable of presenting full, accurate sound that's either as expansive or intimate as it's intended to be. Not only are these swell headphones skilled in providing a balanced delivery of punchy lows and mids, highs shine through and avoid becoming entangled in the soundstage presented here."

[...]

"During my commutes, the flat cable design was invaluable. Whenever my train is stuck in traffic, I usually yank headphones out of my pocket to sooth my aggravation. Most get stuck in knots, but the iDX 160 iE popped right into working form every time."

[...]

"Admirable effort was made to ensure that the iDX 160 iE would fit comfortably in the ears of users. Just look at the eight (!) replaceable ear tips. The earphones' design is sophisticated and stunning to gander at, but also remains practical. The flat cable and inline controls are pleasant features, to boot."

[...]

"If you can't yet swing the asking price, then these earphones are definitely worth saving up for."

[...]

"Our Verdict: Beyerdynamic's sub-$150 earphones provide fine qualities aplenty. From the sound quality, to comfort and best of all, the price (and the included goodies), the iDX 160 iE are a smart buy for music lovers.

The customised ear moulds are beyond any doubt. You quickly learn how to insert them correctly, it can’t get better than this.

[...]

Once they fit snugly in the ear, the iDX 160 can prove their sound potential to the full. They provide a wonderful sound with sleek but deep and very well-controlled bass, expressive, well-resolved  mids as well as attractive and finely drawn highs. All in all, a great tuning for sophisticated music.

[...]

A great solution for people, who listen a lot.

[...]

As for the sound, with beyerdynamic you are on the safe side and the comfort is just great.

iDX 160 iE: Perfect acoustic insulation

The acoustic insulation is perfect. Furthermore, all sounds are reproduced crystal clear and even with loud basses, high sounds and sharp song passages, the headphones do not weaken. The design appears noble, however, it is not very creative. Due to the seven different pairs of ear tips for the headphone, the probability that they are sufficient and will fit into one’s ears is very high. The supplied accessories exceed the standard and mainly the two additional extension cables are used. Those who want to share the music with friends can connect another headphone to an adapter, which is a sensible idea.

[...]

Thanks to a high-quality finish, durability is also guaranteed. All in all a decent product that has little quirks. Thus, the beyerdynamic is a good choice for those who want good and affordable in-ear headphones.

In-ear-headphones that provide a real good ambient noise attenuation and the sound is even better than my personal favourite headphones (MMX 102 iE). The bass is clearly deeper. The headphone is not so loud, but sufficient and does not distort the highs.

With its small metal housing the in-ear from beyerdynamic looks stylish and elegant, the warm sound is pleasant. In cooperation with the hearing aid specialist “Kind”, beyerdynamic provides individually manufactured ear tips. In this way the in-ear headphone fits perfectly and the sounds are more detailed and rich. For people using the in-ear headphones frequently, the extra charge of 120 Euro is worthwhile.

The premium in-ear headset with a powerful sound provides a deep bass response, clear mids and transparent highs due to extra strong neodymium drivers.

Due to the perfect fit the ambient noise is effectively attenuated and the enjoyment of listening is much better.

The beyerdynamic iDX 160 iE in-ear headphone is supplied with extensive accessories as only a few.

[...]

Powerful and differentiated over the whole range of 10 – 25.000 Hz (or what I can still perceive of that at my age). It has what it takes to be my favourite headphone.

It is not only the sound, but also the equipment and the many small details that make you notice that beyerdynamic did not recently start to produce high-quality headphones. Unlike most other headphones, the flat cables of beyerdynamic’s iDX 160 iE meet after almost 40 cm in a 3.5 mm connector. That's just enough to place a player in a breast pocket for listening to music. But the company did not spare cables; on the contrary, two 90 cm long extension cables are included.
