Sennheiser IE 200 review: audiophile-level wired earbuds at an affordable price

Welcome to Audiophile Club. The first rule of Audiophile Club is: you do talk about Audiophile Club. The second rule of Audiophile Club is: you Doing Talk about Audiophile Club! If there was one Fight club-inspired set of eight rules to join such a club, Sennheiser could vote to make the third: Everyone is welcome. (After all, the third line of the movie – if someone yells “stop!”, goes limp or taps out, it’s probably over – probably wouldn’t be appropriate, although going limp on hearing your favorite song sounds the best you can ever heard it would not be inconceivable!)

The German company has long made high-quality ‘audiophile headphones’ for the more discerning music listener lucky enough to be able to afford them, but head to that same section on the company’s website and you’ll find that these ‘audiophile headphones’ – almost all of them are wired (perhaps that would be Sennheiser’s suggestion for a fourth line…) – now including a range of in-ear and over-ear pairs at a variety of prices, from just £130 / $150 / AU$240.
