Excerpt: We were hugely impressed with the standard IE 8 earphones when we first tested them a year or so ago. And as you’d expect, this new ‘i’ version is the same thing but with Sennheiser ’s new mic/three-button control unit. That means that the enclosures (though fairly chunky) are light, fitting comfortably and securely thanks in part to the wrap-over-ear design. It also means that each earphone has a switch for tuning bass, which you turn with a dedicated tool.
Pros: Secure and comfortable, lots of detail, enjoyable sound
