Premium in-ear headset with Apple-certified smartphone remote

Also available without smartphone remote - DX 160 iE >>


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 Windows and Android devices.

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.

Translated from the original German article


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.
