Excerpt: Sennheiser is a renowned brand in the hi-fi world. I personally own and love the HD650 over-ears from Sennheiser, and when I was looking for a new set of portable headphones the IE80 IEMs were at the top of my list.
Pros: Durable, Good Bass, Great Sound
Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Too Much Ambient Noise, Uncomfortable
Excerpt: I don't like bands over my head and these seemed to be a nice compromise with the ear clips to hold the earpieces in place. Unfortunately I was unable to get the ear pieces to be inserted comfortably even with exchanging the soft tips. I must have small ears.
Summary: The retail package for the IE 80 is one of the most impressive IEM packages I've seen. The IEMs are nicely presented and the brushed aluminium box looks very sleek.
Opening the box confirms this with a the box despite being plastic with aluminium faceplates seems very well constructed and more than...
Summary: I wanted to go up to a high grade of earphone so I looked on head-fi and saw the IE 80s and purchased them from amazon.
Fresh out of the box they were amazing and some of the best canal-phones I have heard.
Pros: nice case (as standard with senheiser), amazing bass and general sound
Cons: NOT true monitors as they have a bass hump, bad build quality
Summary: Firstly, in terms of sound quality these earphones are excellent. My problem was with the fitting. The housing is quite large and they are designed specifically so the cables go over and behind the ear, whereas I prefer my earphone cables to hang straight down.
Summary: Whilst sounding good I expected a lot more with headphones that come in at this price buds not the greatest of fits (but maybe that's just my ears!!) think I'll go order a pair of Etymotic ER4's which I had previously
Summary: If you can get the phones to fit properly, the sound quality is quite astonishing. but whether I use the supplied buds or spend even more money trying alternatives I cant get the things to stay comfortably in place commuting walking or whatever. Net: they irritate me as often as they delight me.
Summary: the only reason why this headset is getting a 3 star and not 5 is because of the extremely poor build quality of the headphone jack. it has an inerrant issue with breaking and is flimsy at best resulting in sound only being produced either intermittently or just from 1 earphone.
Summary: The retail package for the IE 80 is one of the most impressive IEM packages I've seen. The IEMs are nicely presented and the brushed aluminium box looks very sleek.

Summary: Zunächst das Negative: Das Handling der Kabel über das Ohr ist für mich ungewohnt und auch nach mehreren Wochen sehr nervig. Häufig rutschen bei stärkeren Kopfbewegungen nach rechts und links Kabel oben über das Ohr.
