I just replaced a broken Sennheiser IE8 with a Sennheiser IE8i (the one with mic) that I bought on Ebay. After comparing the two I realized that the cable has a different colour (the IE8 has a more greyish cable while IE8i version is dark black) and also that the cable of the IE8i is a little thinner. In addition, I realized that the headphone itself has a slightly different colour. The black of the IE8 is more "glossy", while the IE8i has a matte black?
Did I maybe buy a fake? (I did not hear about IE8i fakes so far?)
Soundwise I can`t really compare the two because the old IE8 is broken....
