Sennheiser IE 80 overview

  • 1Description

The IE 80 In-Ear Stereo Headphones from Sennheiser provide high-grade audio in a stylish and customizable package. The compact housings contain dynamic drivers to provide warm, natural audio with a wide frequency response and excellent efficiency. Each earpiece features Sennheiser's unique continuously variable sound tuning control, which allows you to precisely adjust the bass response according to your preferences.

The headphones come with 4 different types of eartips, each with multiple sizes so you can find the perfect in-ear fit. A proper fit creates a seal in the ear to reduce ambient noise by as much as 26dB. This also helps to improve bass response and allows you to listen at lower volume levels without missing out on the details in your music.

Optional flexible earhooks are included for a secure fit. The detachable cable provides plenty of slack, and can also be looped around the ears for additional stability. The headphones can be worn in a traditional manner as well. An included cable clip lets you attach the cable to your clothing to minimize snags, tangles, and friction noise. The 3.5mm stereo mini plug has angled strain relief to provide lasting durability. A cleaning tool and hardshell storage case are included to keep your headphones in great condition for years of enjoyment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for listening to music I have cycled through a number of ear buds through the years and most recently upgraded to the Shure 315's only to return them for these. For me, I listen to rock/metal and even some country. I love the guitar sound and mids, but when I listen to music I want it to sound like a concert. I now understand the difference between the flat frequency Shure's and these. If I were a guitar player on stage I'd probably appreciate the precision of the Shures more, but for listening to music the IE 80s kill them. The music is so full and with the ability to tune the base response I can find the sweet spot that works for me. I love hearing the punch of each instrument rather than the flat sound of the Shure's. Get these if you really love listening to your music.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound and Soundstage Do not expect it to sound great right out of the box. It takes a while to burn-in and then the sound starts improving. If there is one complaint I would have (if at all any) is the mids. the mids lack detail for an IEM at this price range. But since I only paid $, it is definitely worth it. It is very comfortable adn it does not insert too deep in your ears because of which it does not isolate well and may not be the best IEM for noisy environments. But it is very comfortable. If you are looking for a bass heavy IEM under $, you should definitely try this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep smooth and clear sound! I tune up the earbuds and after a couple of hours of use you cant stop enjoying. Crispy clear sound and more volume available compared with Bose.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Sound, Poor Comfort 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. There are great and much more detailed reviews for this product here at BH and across the web. This is just my personal opinion as a music fan (with a sound engineering degree and radio DJ background). These are tough little guys with good, solid construction. The user replaceable cable was a major plus for me, having gone through two other sets of portable IEMs that only lasted until the cables broke (and weren't replaceable). The included carrying case is well built but honestly not something I'd use, as it took too much time to wrap the IE80s up and fit them into the foam, etc. The IE80s are *not* perfectly flat/neutral in response. To me this isn't bad, especially in portable headphones, where I tend to want something less clinical and more 'musical' and fun. The IE80s have a distinct bass emphasis even with the adjustable bass on the lowest setting. But it is quite clean and articulate (without much 'slam' but these are in-ears, after all). The mids are a bit recessed and the treble is pleasant without being harsh or grating, making the sound signature pretty fun and laid back and easy to listen to for long periods. The soundstage is pretty wide for IEMs although of course can't hold a candle to the HD650s with a desktop DAC + headphone amp combination. What wasn't fun or easy (for me) was the fit. I tried every included tip and wore them with the cables both over ear and straight in and could not get a good seal or comfortable fit. I even purchased tri-flange tips from Sennhesier, which didn't help; then I got some Avedio tips which were better but still tended to result in the IE80s falling out of my ears. I felt like I was constantly adjusting the IEMs even just sitting at my desk, trying to get a good seal and get the bass back. When walking it was worse, of course. Microphonics is well controlled but they kept trying to pop out of my ears/break the seal (so to speak). And wind noise was definitely present. Isolation when fully sealed was okay, but not great. My older Thinksound Rain2 IEMs have better isolation in comparison. Everyone's ear shape is different, just like everyone has different sound signature preferences. If I could just have gotten the IE80s to stay sealed and in place in my ears I would have loved them as a fun, but articulate and decently revealing portable set. But as it stands I could not get them to stay in my ears and even when I did I ended up with pain after an hour or so. Perhaps it is the weight of the housing around the large driver, or perhaps it's just the shape of my ears. But these ended up being not right for me. YMMV. For me personally: 4 stars for sound (5 stars being reserved for truly exceptional), 2 stars for comfort, 4 1/2 stars for build quality. 3 stars total.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier with them This product is very high quality and the B&H staff was extremely useful to help me choose the right option. Both the shop and the earphones are awesome :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing in ear headphones! Very detailed highs and mids. Amazing bass! I would recommend that you pair it with an Ibasso DX90 to release its full potential.
