Sennheiser CX 980 Headphones Review - Intro

 

The Sennheiser CX 980s are a new pair of in-ears from Sennheiser. The headphones look great and have a sound to match, but at the slightly steep price point of $260, mainstream listeners won't find much to keep them from buying one of Sennheiser's less...

The CX 980s are a good set of headphones that feature great audio quality, solid construction, and come with a decent array of packed-in extras. We have no complaints with the audio quality, but we would've liked a few more sleeves to ensure a better...

A great set, but most people could get a similar experience for cheaper

Great frequency response; Even tracking; Comfortable for in-ears

Not the best isolation

Sennheiser CX 980i

 

The CX series takes to the catwalk with the stylish CX 980 earphones.

Stylish design ; Smooth, easy on the ear sound

Bass not entirely under control ; Expensive

Sennheiser is generally viewed as a safe pair of hands as a headphone maker, but could this new leaning towards more conspicuously styled sets mark a dip in sound quality?

Understated, elegant and an absolute joy to wear, the Sennheiser CX 980 are for the music fan who doesn’t need to try too hard to impress. Little extra flourishes, like the inflight adapter and leather carry case, as well as a wide assortment of in-ear...

It’s that word ‘balanced’ that pretty much sums the CX 980 experience. There is nothing that feels superfluous or not agonisingly thought through. The balanced weight of the buds in your ear oppose to the sculpted metal support arms means everything...

If we have any problem it’s with the even nature of the sound. Sure, there are two sets of silicon ear adapters, so you can choose between balanced or bass-driven sound simply by switching them over. However, no matter which option you go for the...
