Summary: I bought this as I needed a good ear-canal headset compatible with the iPhone. Let's face it, it's a fantastic piece of technology: slick, great sound (on part with my other earphones Westone 3 which are great and more expensive).
Summary: I picked these up with airmiles, so in essence for free. I fly a couple of times a week and found most headphones too cumbersome or they don't cut out the ambient noise enough but these CX980i's are magic.
Summary: My new Sennheiser CX9801in-ear sound isolating headset arrived today. Right from the get go you can see that this is a premium bit of audio hardware. Sennheiser has really put a lot of thought into producing this product.
Summary: I have recently purchased these as my previous ear bud headphones (Bose) became defective, actually it was my IPhone that had broken but I didn't realise that at the time. What I was looking for was comfort, good sound and convenience, as well as a set of earphones that did not annoy my wife sat...
Summary: Had these for a few weeks now, and they are very good. I use for commuting on the train and when in the gym and going running. The in-ear buds are very comfortable and prevent the sound from "leaking". The remote is easy to use and made of very high quality - something you'd expect from Sennheiser.
Summary: I was sceptical at first whether the high price of these headphones would actually deliver a significant enough difference over and above my current ones. I have always been of the "average price" school of headphones before and at first I didn't think these sounded much better than a previous £25...
Excellent all round headphones, though not without fault
