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...

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...

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
