Summary: This new type of cable for the ie4/5 comes with a volume controller about 12" below the left earpiece. It stops you from using the sliding chin-strap to keep the damned cables in-place. Not well thought out.
Summary: One of the previous reviewers mentioned the sound quality was great but only if you can get a decent seal. This is the same as I experienced. Perhaps I have non standard ear holes, but I struggled finding a comfortable and solid seal using the supplied ear buds. I tried some other brands of buds and eventually I realised that due to the shape of the speakers themselves I could not find that special spot.
Summary: the headphones' package was different from the official picture, i knew there are tones of fake ie8 headphones flowing around the market as i v got a fake pair before, i was kinda worried that these could be fakes. the blue stripe doesnt cover full of the opening lid bottom leaving a stripe of black on, i wasnt sure that if sennheiser have separated batches with different package printing.also by listening to them i dont get the big surprise as i was hoping to get, they...
Summary: Yes, they are expensive. Yes, they are worth it. As all the positive reviews say, these have to be one of the best IEM's out there. The only thing I have to add is fitting the right plugs for your ears is key. I ended up having to use different sized ones for each ear in-order to get the best fit.
Summary: Right, first off AMAZING PACKAGING. Second off, you DO get all the accessories: all ear buds, the little hooks, everything. Sound quality is good but they need a while to warm up, also make sure your using the right size ear buds as they need to be fitted properly to get the whole picture, push them in, wiggle them about you'll know when you have them fitted right, trust me. The isolation is incridible and a little scary when crossing a busy road!
Summary: Very annoyed, ordered these headphones after reading tons of great reviews. I'm not impressed by the goods I recieved, may as well have recieved second hand goods, all the packaging was opened, headphones clearly used, with crackling coming from the earbuds. Must have been a faulty return. Very unhappy with the fact Amazon thought they could send them out.
