Sennheiser IE80 Earphones Review

 

The new Sennheiser IE80 earphones are only a small upgrade over the equally competent IE8. Having said that, we can say it with complete confidence that these in-ear soldiers will appeal equally to the crowd that likes the 'neutral' sound, and to...

Extremely detailed sound reproduction, Powerful but taut bass, Consistent blocking out of ambient noise, Very comfortable to wear for long durations

Cost quite a bit of money

Sennheiser IE 80 Earphones (Playback 58)

 

When you think of German companies, what are some of the first things that come to mind? The terms that cross my mind are precision manufacturing, innovation, and sleek design—three phrases that couldn't be any more accurate in describing the German...

The audiophile basshead IE range is back with a new flagship.

Excellent bass, Great detail

Minor upgrade over IE 8, Average looks, Bass dial arguably unnecessary

Small, pricey and customisable, the Sennheiser IE 80s are pure audiophile candy

Bass tweaking ; Comfortable design ; Powerful all-round sound

High price tag ; Giant case

Quality finish, selection of accessories, open presentation, exceptionally detailed sound, adjustable bass delivery works well

Not cheap

The iE80s might cost a bit, but they’re a truly quality in-ear option

Sennheiser IE80

 

We like music. We like it even more when it is beamed to our ear-holes via super high end headphones. Until recently our set of Atomic Floyd SuperDarts have remained our go to kit for music listening. Sennheiser thinks they can replace them with the...

Tuneable bass, brilliant accessories

Bit flimsy, expensive

£200 is a lot to spend on headphones, but these come with decent accessories, sound terrific and have customisation potential most headphones can only dream of.

Sennheiser IE 80 review

 

We were rather fond of the old Sennheiser IE 8 in-ears . Massively comfortable, well made and deeply, adjustably bassy, they were great for fluid tunes on a long commute. But it's possible they were just a touch too smooth, which could take some of the...

Sennheiser IE 80 review

 

The slick, sliver industrial sheen of the Sennhesier IE 80s is complemented by a matching hard case, too big for a jacket pocket but large enough to house the accessories including the mini screw driver which adjusts the bass screw on the side of each...

The $529 price tag is quite high for a pair of in-ear headphones but the sound quality of the Sennheiser IE 80s is excellent, and the comfort and durability that stand out over impressive but fragile rivals.
