Sennheiser has just posted a press release regarding the upcoming summer release of the IE 800 – their new flagship in-ear headphone. 

They describe some of the design concepts behind the IE 800 including why they decided to use a single dynamic driver, what the two jet engine-looking vents actually do, and the interesting switch to oval (not circular) eartips.

As we mentioned earlier, the IE 800 will sell for about $790 USD.
