The IE 40 PRO has Neodymium magnets, which provide a punch with a sound pressure level (SPL) of up to 115dB. The company also claims that the mechanical design of IE 40 PRO includes a patent-pending cable ducting, which helps reduce the risk of cable breaks.
The connector is accommodated inside the ear mold. To protect users against excessive stage sound, the IE 40 PRO can reduce ambient sound by up to 26dB, claims Sennheiser.
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.
“The IE 40 PRO is going to be a game changer in the professional segment. It is the first and most accessible in a new series of fantastic sounding dynamic in-ear phones. We have high expectations from IE 40 PRO, as it has already astounded the engineers and bands in the international market and we are expecting a similar response in India,” Vipin Pungalia, Director, Professional Segment, Sennheiser India said in a press statement.
