Sennheiser CX880i Headset Review

 

CX880i

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

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...

Exciting

 

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.

i fall asleep listening to music

 

I am a stage 4 cancer patient who cannot leave my place or even the sofa when the days and nights are rough. I rely on music all night and day to help me cope. Music is great therapy that I recommend to anyone. Using these particular earbuds allows me...
