Review of Sennheiser IE8 earphones

Mobile Review
7 September 2010
  • Summary: Despite a slightly uncomfortable fixation we get good sound if you follow two rules – choose tips correctly and ensure that your source does not provide too heavy a sound. From the abovementioned you can realize that I observed these rules. I cannot guarantee that you will be equally lucky.

Sennheiser IE 8 Review

Anything but iPod
14 February 2010
  • Conclusion: What a rollercoaster ride… first they sounded like the IEM-equivalents of the Ultrasone HFI-780 or Beyerdynamic DT770, or something like the Phonak PFE with additional subwoofer. Now they sound like the HD 650, like the Atrios with a decent tweeter, or the RE0 on steroids. Makes no sense to you?
  • Pros: Rich, cohesive sound with realistic bass, precise midrange, and natural treble – one of the best sounding universal-fit IEMs, Very good build quality, comfortable to wear, User replaceable cable with excellent build quality and low cable noise, Sound character changes over time – if to the better...
  • Cons: Low noise isolation for a high-end IEM, Huge but sub-par selection of included silicon and foam tips, Useless bulky aluminum case which adds to the IE 8’s price

  • Summary: This review is written by a regular live FOH engineer who's most similar price-range in-ears are Shure SE425's.   I purchased this pair (IE8) of in-ears because they were only AUD$160 from a local eBay seller, brand new w/warranty and I was interested in other sound signatures for listening to...
  • Pros: Feels solidly built, stock cable is decent. Detachable cable. Will fit into any decently normal ear. Bass knob.
  • Cons: No moulding wire. Stock ear-tips provide poor fit. Bass knob doesn't go to negative.

  • Summary: So this is my last IEM upgrade I am planning on doing since I am more of an Over Ear type. However for work I needed a solid IEM. I got these at a great price, and I am plesantly surprised of how much of an upgrade over my CX-870's it is!
  • Pros: great sound stage, amazing bass, treble, versitile
  • Cons: i have not found any yet

  • Summary: Bass screws work if you have some bass to begin with, ie. not using an ipod. Soundstage is brilliant. Sound is a bit unbalanced, have use aggresive eq with walkman. bass is phenominal.
  • Pros: Lots of tips, fancy travelling case,tons of bass, excellent sound-stage, good build quality, adjustable bass, sounds excellent with metal.
  • Cons: Most tips are useless, bass screw is a bit fragile.

  • Summary: only auditioned this iem for a brief time as I would never pay nearly this much of my hard earned money on an iem. These must have been tuned to a certain type of modern music and for that, whatever it may have been, these probably sound outstanding
  • Pros: workmanship, detail
  • Cons: value

  • Summary: Purchased these From an Authorized seller in the UK as a Demo but in as new / Mint condition. They actually had 10 Pair, in hindsight I probably should have purchased a 2nd. After a Disappointing trial of Vsonic GR07 Classics, I decided to pop the Extra $$$$ and take a chance with the IE8s.
  • Pros: Great Bass, articulate Treble and mids
  • Cons: Minor Mid-Bass Hump that appears to smooth out after burn-in, OEM Ear tips not up to par with Earphones.

  • Summary: These earbuds has a warm sound, but with very nice mids, and crisp highs. I heard that lot of people say it has too much bass, but I think they are just enough with the knob turned to the max (maybe it can have even more bass). I found that they sound a slightly similar to the Klipsch Image X10.
  • Pros: Very Very strong bass, mids are good, highs are crisp, comfortable, very strong build, almost no microphonic, replaceable cable
  • Cons: doesn't isolate too much noise, some people may dislike the midbass hump, carrying case is complicated (but cool:)
