Summary: I have the Sennheiser IE80 but wanted to try the IE800 to see if they were really all that much better. As it turns out they are. The IE800 has a smooth balanced sound signature from the base to the highs. The sound is 'clearer' than the IE80's as well. I love the fit, too.
Pros: Smooth and balance sound; excellent separation; small and comfortable
Cons: Cord a little short; cord microphonics noticable when moving around
Summary: I have been listening to these for about a month now. They sound great. As good if not better than people have been writing about. I don't have a problem with the cable length. I am 6'2 and put my phone in my jacket pocket. I don't seem to get hung up with doorknobs and the like.
Summary: Love them. Read a number of reviews and it was between these and the Shure se846. The Sennheiser's went on sale and I jumped right on them. The only really complaints I read about was about cable length and microphonic noise. To me cable length is fine I use this in a completely listening mode I.e.
Pros: Size Kevlar cable Sound quality
Cons: Noise isolation on plane ... again very minor issue. Didn't like case that came with it ... too big. I'm using a smaller case that came with my older Westone's that way I can carry in my pocket.
Summary: Excellent top to bottom, ultra-smooth with no peaks, dips, or roughness. Strong bass and treble, but very high quality. Some IEMs have difficulty producing the very deep bass below 25 hz clearly - the IE800 does it with ease. Most comfortable IEM I've ever used.
Summary: After seeing these masterpieces I sold my house, my car and my kidney and paid the rest on loan. Now I'm a proud owner of a pair of headphones, preferably IEM's. My story may sound absurd but trust me the headphones sound great and as the saying goes, music is life these headphones do a great job by...
Summary: Upgraded these from ie80 and the difference is night and day.. ie80s were good to start with, but these are just on another level. So crisp and clear detailed in sound. Slightly high on bass though but i actually like it that way. I cant put these down amazing sound and comfort.

Best sounding ear-canal headphones regardless of price but need a good portable sound source to realise their full potential

Summary: I bought these to replace a pair of Shure SE535s which I had for 3+ years and absolutely loved, but regrettably lost. I was apprehensive about spending this amount of money on ear-canal headphones again, the Shure's were a gamble that paid off because I found them to be very comfortable with hardly...
Summary: Good: After having dual, triple and quad armature earphones from several brands, these were completely different. Amazing clarity, transparent sound with a huge wide soundstage, but still enough bass (but not head crushing) for various types of music.
