Sennheiser IE 800

The Sennheiser IE 800 is a very small but invaluable breakthrough, a dynamic linear-phase driver with extremely wide bandwidth (XWB) transducer system. With a diameter of only 7mm, it is currently the smallest XWB sound transducer available with dynamic ear canal phones and promises distortion-free sound. The IE 800 features oval-shaped ear adaptors for maximum comfort, two protective meshes (one in the ear cushion and one in the cone) that effectively protects against dirt contamination and allows for easy cleaning and comes with an attenuated dual-chamber absorber.

BenQ has announced the availability of flicker-free technology across its monitor range. Flicker, or a flashing, occurs as the LED backlight controller of a monitor adjusts to the changes in brightness level. The new flicker-free monitors adopt a unique De-flickering Backlight Circuit Controller for a zero-flicker viewing experience and in turn helps reduce eye health concerns caused by a fast-flickering display and/or prolonged usage of PCs and notebooks. Features that complement the monitors are the Senseye Reading Mode and the Eye Protect Sensor.
