The Sennheiser IE600 are high-end earbuds known for their exceptional build quality, with a durable design including detachable cables that allow for easy replacement or customization. They are wired, stemless earbuds with a closed enclosure, making them suitable for those who prefer a more traditional earbud experience without wireless connectivity. Their sound quality is specific for music lovers, as they offer dynamic drivers which tend to provide rich and detailed sound. However, these earbuds may not be ideal for all activities; they lack features such as sweatproof certification, making them less suitable for exercise, and they do not support low latency, active noise cancelling, or wireless features, which can be drawbacks for gaming, air travel, and on-the-go use. Additionally, their size is labeled as large, which might affect comfort for users with smaller ears. If you're looking for versatile earbuds for a variety of activities, including fitness or frequent calls and meetings, you may want to consider alternative options with more specialized features.

Ratings by Category

TV & Video:
4.8
This score evaluates the earbuds or headphones when used to watch videos, movies and TV. In the case of wireless products, it takes into account latency - the perceived delay between the action on screen and the sounds playing in your ears. The score also considers soundstage quality, whether they have a virtual surround feature, and overall comfort. It’s important to note that the device paired with the earbuds heavily influences their performance in regards to latency or delay.
Music:
4.5
This evaluates the product when used solely to listen to music. It takes into account the sound quality, whether or not they support high quality codecs, their ability to reproduce soundstage, and whether or not it has any virtual surround capabilities.
Portability:
4.4
The Portability score is based on an overall assessment that includes volume and maximum dimension of the product (and case, if relevant), and its weight. Special features like foldability for headphones are also taken into account.
Air Travel:
3.9
This score evaluates the product for use on airplanes and other similar kinds of travel. It takes into account noise reduction and portability, including case shape, case size, and weight. It also incorporates the battery life of the product, long-haul comfort, noise reduction (both active and passive), and sound quality. We generally consider wireless products to be more suitable for air travel.
Gaming:
3.8
This score evaluates the product when used to play videogames. It takes into account wireless latency - the perceived delay between the action on screen and the sounds playing in your ears. The score also considers soundstage quality, whether they have a virtual surround feature, and overall comfort. Finally, the gaming score takes into account microphone quality for in-game voice chat. It’s important to note that the device paired with the earbuds heavily influences their performance in regards to latency or delay.
