Our new IE 200 packs a punch, and well above its weight class too. It combines some of the best sonic traits of the IE 300 and 600 thanks to our dynamic 7mm TrueResponse transducer. To give our Head-Fi pals a fresh take on the new earphone, we’re sponsoring a “Review Tour” for the IE 200 in North America. In exchange for extended use of the IE 200, all we ask is that participants post an in-depth review/highly-detailed impressions on Head-Fi’s IE 200 Head Gear page. Most importantly, you’ll get to use the IE 200 with your own setup, letting you easily isolate the variables that matter most to you.
Applying for the tour is easy: post your interest in this thread and that you agree to the terms and conditions, and we’ll reach out to select candidates and coordinate the rest. We will select 2 reviewers from the US, Canada, and Mexico – the tour ends after we select 6 reviewers. When you post a review, impressions, or photos on Instagram, please tag them with #IE200Tour.
The official discussion thread:https://www.head-fi.org/threads/discover-a-new-world-of-sound-make-way-for-the-ie-200.966475/
Product page for reviews on Head-Fi:https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/sennheiser-ie-200.26289/
We will be compiling a playlist of select songs to showcase the IE 200’s capabilities based on tour reviews, et al., so please share links to any relevant streaming tracks you used to evaluate the IE 200.
[We’ll edit this post to add it here, soon.]
Loaner Program Terms and Conditions
You may evaluate the loaner IE 200 for two weeks from date of arrival at your tour stop. A Head-Fi review is what makes the tour work so well for the community, but don’t forget to tag any related social media, Amazon reviews, or pictures with #IE200Tour so your fellow audiophiles can see them “in the wild.”
You must be OK with your real name and address being privately provided to Sennheiser for shipping purposes. Sennheiser will be allowed to elevate and share your whole statement or excerpts on our product and store pages. In addition to posting full reviews here on Head-Fi, we encourage reviewers to also post their reviews on your own webpages, channels, and servers. Sennheiser will provide a prepaid shipping label for the next tour stop, and advise the ideal carrier at that time. Sennheiser will also provide additional new eartips with each tour stop.
Please post tour-related updates in this thread upon receipt of the IE 200, and when published, a link to your Head Gear page review. It’s a “good neighbor” practice to alert the thread when you’ve received the IE 200, and then again when you have shipped the IE 200. If you choose to use 3rd party eartips and cables (this is NOT required), please offer objective perspective on the stock eartips and cables in addition to impressions using 3rd party eartips and cables. Please also consider the dual-tuning feature (eartips in position 1 or 2) as it can unlock a different listening experience.
You are responsible for the integrity of the IE 200 and its components during your tour stop, and agree to immediately privately contact @Sennheiser or @ericpalonen with any comments or concerns. Do not modify or disassemble the IE 200 or its accessories. We recommend keeping and re-using packing materials. Of course, Sennheiser is here to help answer any questions.
