Sennheiser CX880i Headset Review



Excellent bass. Light and comfortable to wear. In-line mic and remote

Treble frequencies are overpowering at higher volume. Thin wires easily transmit friction noise

After months of impatience and even a few pangs of longing, music fans in the U.S. can finally use Spotify, the European music-streaming phenom that promises access to any song, any time, anywhere (see review). But of course even the latest and...

Sennheiser CX880i review


Sennheiser's new in-ear headphones offer up some amazing sound quality

Sennheiser CX880i


Work well with vocals, bass is disciplined

I have never spent more than $30.00 dollars on earbuds until I got my first iphone. I purchased the Sennheiser earbuds and when I plugged them in I was transformed to another place. The sound is amazing, so clear and crisp. I feel like I am in the...

Excellent choice for portable HQ audio


Use with iPod\/iPad and PC. Comfortable and portable, though the volume control on the original CX-880 is more versatile.
