Sennheiser Introduces IE 40 Pro In-Ear Audio Monitor

Sennheiser is launching a new series of professional in-ears, beginning with the IE 40 PRO entry model which will be available near the end of September.

Sennheiser said the IE 40 PRO ensures impeccable audio reproduction with warmth, detail and natural clarity. The audio performance is complemented by a well thought-out mechanical design that includes a patent-pending, break-proof cable ducting. The connector is inside the ear mould, where it sits protected against the wear and tear that occurs during heavy use.

In early 2019, the IE 40 PRO will be joined by the IE 400 PRO and the top-of-the-range IE 500 PRO.

At the heart of the IE 40 PRO is a high-quality driver, which delivers a naturally warm and powerful sound with great clarity. Distortion is at a very low level with 0.1 percent at 1kHz and 94dB. The bass and lower mids can not only be heard but also felt. Powerful Neodymium magnets provide the necessary punch with an SPL of up to 115dB. This clear and natural sound has the added benefit of reducing acoustic stress for the user, who will be able to set the monitors at a lower level.

To protect users against excessive stage sound, the IE 40 PRO are able to reduce ambient sound by up to 26dB. This is achieved by a choice of included silicone ear tips (S, M, L) and a special ear tip made from memory foam, which expands to perfectly fit the ear canal. As the length of the human ear canal varies, the earphones’ ‘sound tunnel’ has two rest positions to attach the ear tips to. Thus ensuring perfect sealing has the added benefit of providing powerful bass reproduction.

The IE 40 PRO will be available in black and transparent versions from the end of September. It comes complete with a soft storage pouch, a cleaning tool and silicone ear tips in three sizes (S, M, L) and a pair of memory foam ear tips in size M.
