Sennheiser CX880i review

 

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

Good detail ; Excellent balance ; Smooth and mellow treble

Detail a bit lacking at first but soon warms to be very revealing

Sennheiser CX880i

 

Work well with vocals, bass is disciplined

Slight hint of edginess in the treble

Classy in-ears that excel with vocals, but certain rivals are better and cheaper

Sennheiser CX 880 review

 

The delicate sound produced by the CX 880 set is well worth a listen, but they're rather quiet and not as easy to upgrade as most earphones

Sennheiser CX 880i

 

The Sennheiser CX 880i are iPhone headphones which sound great but take a lot of perseverance to achieve a good fit.

Integrated microphone and play controls ; Good sound for those who are patient

Hard to get a good fit ; Can be too shrill or too bassy ; iPhone only

This creates issues for sound quality as well. If you don't get a good seal, you'll find that the sound is overly forward. And while it sounds crisp, it can get tiring — you'll also experience plenty of outside noise leakage. Persevere too long and you...

Great Sound and Bass

Sounds better than Bose

 

I own a pair of Bose On-Ear 2 headphones, which used to be my favorite, but these outshine Bose. Balanced pitch and high fidelity.

Sound quality, comfortable to wear, cool looks

So far none

Incredible Earbuds

 

I bought these from Newegg in December as an impulse buy. I have Apple buds and a $80 pair of Sennheiser in-ear buds. These OCX 880's completely blow them away. I was shocked at how much better the sound is. I like bass. These phones deliver great...

Awesome sound ; Very Comfortable ; Carrying Case

None

Marvelous

 

1. Precision, that's what you're looking for from Sennheiser, unlike Beats, who provides you nothing but bass, which by the way, is not even remotely comparable to Sony XB series but much more expensive ; 2. Comfort, you won't feel a thing wearing...

A common 'flaw' with almost all Sennheiser headphones: The break-in period is comparatively longer, normally they won't reach their best performances until almost a year later. However, once they did, all you'll be hearing is 'heavenly sound

Sennheiser - Earbud Headphones (OCX 880)

 

Compare to this one, Bose was way over price.

For $35, worth every penny of it

Useless volume control, but nice to have

Consumer review by: N/A (newegg.com)

A very clear, balanced Sennheiser sound

 

There is no bleeding between the frequencies, ie the treble mids and bass are distinctly present

The balanced presentation might be "too boring" for some
