Precision Sound on Any Stage
High-resolution sound down to the finest details. Precise, accurate soundstage, even at extreme sound pressure levels. The IE 500 PRO combines huge power and clarity for any location and any stage. The dynamic 7mm driver works with the newly developed TrueResponse technology and refines the natural strengths of the diaphragm while eliminating stress factors that occur with other driver systems. Distortion, feedback peaks, and overlapping frequency ranges are no longer a problem. The distortion factor has been optimized to a previously unimaginable 0.08%. A miniature design also permits a formerly inconceivable, flat construction, which fits comfortably and securely into any ear canal. The accompanying silicone and memory foam adapters improve the fit and shielding, making it feel like it is tailor-made. Even with extreme movement, the IE 500 PRO sits securely in the outer ear and can still be inserted or removed in a matter of seconds. The innovative, shock-proof cable duct (patent pending) is naturally replaceable.
Sennheiser IE 500 PRO in one take:
- Newly developed, dynamic 7mm wideband transducer with extremely fine resolution and neutral sound
- Detachable twisted pair cable for excellent resistance against structure-born noise
- TrueResponse driver system reduces acoustic stress factors through homogeneous and low-distortion reproduction
- High level of wearing comfort and good fit thanks to ergonomic, compact housing
- Excellent shielding through optimized earpiece shape and flexible silicone and foam tips
- Cable concept fit for the stage with innovative cable duct (patent application in progress)
Find Yourself in the Mix
With the IE 500 PRO, musicians can reliably locate themselves in the mix and hear every nuance of other voice or instrument, even on the loudest stages. The low-resistance system performs clearly without distortion, even at high sound pressure levels. TrueResponse technology allows for high-resolution midrange, an accurate soundstage, and a robust design fit for any stage. The IE 500 PRO provide the clear, natural sound professionals need to perform to their fullest capacity.
Next-generation dynamic drivers
The IE 500 PRO are the result of intensive development work. A single high-performance dynamic driver with a diaphragm measuring only 7 mm in diameter covers the entire frequency spectrum. This way, interference effects in the region of the transitional frequencies and phase differences are avoided. A system of magnets with triple-duct ventilation significantly reduces the distortion factor, and a two-chamber absorber in the direction of the ear canal minimizes feedback peaks that would otherwise occur naturally. Even at high volumes, the sound remains clean and free from distortion. Consequently, the IE 500 PRO protects your hearing, even after hours of use on the loudest stages. For professionals that previously got lost in the mix, their sound suddenly becomes audible.
A Comfortable Fit, Hours at a Time
Choose either silicone or viscoelastic memory foam tips to individually adapt to the structure and depth of your ear canal for hours of reliable wearing comfort. Durable and innovative cable ducting with a deep-set connector allows the IE 500 PRO to also withstand tough nights on the stage. Day after day, tour after tour, the IE 500 Pro will provide detailed sound and reliability for years to come.
