Both models of the IE 100 Pro are geared toward professional musicians and DJs who work on stage.
Sennheiser has expanded its in-ear monitoring solutions portfolio with the launch of the IE 100 Pro and IE 100 Pro Wireless. These innovations were designed to precisely monitor sound for live stages, as well as mixing, producing, or simply enjoying life on the road.
The system comes with a Bluetooth connector that can be swapped with the cable when preferred. The Bluetooth connector also features an in-built microphone, a remote for call and music control and a battery life of up to 10 hours. A USB-C cable, which fully recharges the Bluetooth connector in 1.5 hours is also included.
The IE 100 Pro is also available individually for stage work, where it is complemented with a wide range of accessories to fit all preferences and applications. As the successor to the IE 40 Pro, the new Sennheiser IE 100 Pro in-ear monitors offer a natural, and precise monitoring sound that allows users to fine-tune their performance with ease.
Speaking about the launch, Gunnar Dirks, Product Manager of Sennheiser, said: “When you choose the IE 100 Pro Wireless, you get an outstanding two-in-one solution. In addition to the standard accessories, the IE 100 Pro Wireless includes the IE Pro BT Connector – simply unplug the standard cable, attach the lightweight semi-wireless cable instead and enjoy great audio with all the freedom of a Bluetooth connection.”
While the IE 100 Pro retains the same transducer and frequency response as its predecessor, it is now fitted with the same connector type and clever stage-proof internal cable duct as the IE 400 PRO and IE 500 Pro.
Dirks added: “Using one connector platform allows users to simply select their favourite cable regardless of the model they own. For example, IE 500 Pro users can simply get themselves an IE Pro BT Connector to use their professional in-ears for wireless music enjoyment. Moreover, with the IE Pro Mono Cable, we’re adding a new solution for broadcasting.”
The new IE Pro Mono Cable is a twisted cable that offers excellent suppression of structure-borne noise. It can be used with the right or left earpiece, which gives a single-sided broadcast solution for live moderation, correspondents and ENG applications. With a stereo signal, the left signal will be transmitted.
