Available at authorized resellers
Article Number: 716286

Premium in-ear headphone for mobile devices with a powerful sound

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.

DX 160 iE: A good rating for beyerdynamic

In the test it received good marks for a crispy bass (rock and pop), a clear and bright voice (radio play) and airy fresh sounds (jazz). Seven headphones (addition: from 18 that were tested) achieved a good mark: both from beyerdynamic.

The attenuation of the in-ear headphones was also important for the testers. For this the testers listened with the neighbours like travellers on a bus or train.
Test rating: good (2.2)

Videoaktiv makes demands to all headphones: A good headphone should sound as neutral as possible, then it is suitable for movies and listening to music as well.

[...]

The beyerdynamic DX 160 iE is the master – it reproduces the bass of "Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough" with such a feel which is remarkable for ear tips.  At the other end of the frequency spectrum the DX 160 iE unfortunately does not act so perfectly: The highs are clear, but somewhat sharp though. Testing three models, the one from Heilbronn makes the best impression and is still affordable.

In the ear plug category, beyerdynamic can defend the first place on the winner’s rostrum with the DX 160 iE.

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!"

Overall ranking: 4.7 points (out of 5)
