I agree about the w4 but really once you have them for a while you start to really love them,, specially when you put something else in your ears after ,, it's kinda like ,, ewwww lol just my opinion. And toe the ie80 is fantastic I drive them with my continetal v3 and they really shine even more. They are kinda layed back but with a lot of dynamics. Hope that makes sence. Lol which ones would I sell first my ie80 or my w4r's?? I'd still have to say how good they are ,, my w4r's. don't think I'd ever get rid of my senns:)smily_headphones1.gifsmily_headphones1.gif

So what IEM gets the most usage these days from you lighting? You still have the 8A? I was lucky to sell mine off along with the Kaede. Went for the SE5. Can't wait :).

so i guess w4 is the type of iem that will grow to liking you but will not impress the first time. im happy enough with my um3x and ie80. they both have great synergy with my dap(studio v) .

ie80 and um3x when im outside jh16fp when i went for a long trip and playing keyboard and hd800 at home. the um3x and ie80 gets most of time for iem because i dont want to use $1k+ IEM when im outside because if it lost i probably will cry(alot) lol. im trying to sell my 8a now in Indonesia but if nobody wanted to buy them then i will sell at head-fi. im super jelly of your se5 frown.gif. after i get the lcd3 and an amp for my cans then im planning to buy the s5 and try it with my tera player.

Yes it's one that you will like after using it a while. I've never had the um3 but I have the um2 and I like it. Amped it sounds really good to me. I'm now looking for a dac I just don't know which one to get. Any suggestions ?? Like I've stated before I'm using a alo continetal v3 which I love. It is a very clean and detailed amp. Took a while to really warm up to it but now I love it. If you have any suggestions please give me some advice?? Does a dac really make that much difference ?? Better then my 7th gen ipod classic with my amp??

in my experience dac do make alot of difference(or atleast it do make more difference than amp and cable). if you are using an apple product then i suggest the fostex hp-p1, the price is on the high side but i think its worth it because when you upgrade your IEM you dont need to upgrade the dac. im sure it will sound great with your continental v3 because it already sounded very good with no amp

Yes sounds great. Like you said it sounds good unamped too. With this amp it doesn't add any boost or color to them just pushes them nicly I listen to mine with the bass dial turned all the way down. I not a bass head by all means. That's why I like this amp. It don't add more bass or anything ya know. Sorry I'm not great at explaining all this stuff lol IMO though the ie80 can be a very good bass head iem and it can also be very good for other things. I think that's what makes this iem very special. smily_headphones1.gif. And thanks for the advice I will defently look into it. smily_headphones1.gif

Well I ordered these to compare with the 3.Ai currently in my possession.  I love everything about the 3.Ai except the harsh sibilance/treble peaks I am hearing in about 50% of mixes.  It's a shame because everything else is just lovely.

 

If the IE80 have all that minus the treble, I'll probably keep them.

Well I'll keep you posted on what I think. I can do some comparisons from memory as well for the 8A. Probably drop you a PM for that.

UM3x are better, but they need powerful source (to get a deep bass, good treble and much more better soundstage), while IE80 sounds good from most sources on a good level. I was using them with modded Colorfly CK4+ (AD8397+good capacitors inside). When testing with IE80, Westones were better.

Hi, can someone help me?  I'm looking to buy some IE 80s from Amazon.co.uk, but there are two different products on there:

 

1. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser-IE-80-In-Ear-Headphones/dp/B005N8W27I/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1378653837&sr=8-2&keywords=sennheiser+ie80

 

Product details

 

2. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser-IE-80-In-Ear-Headphones/dp/B005N8W27I/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1378654814&sr=1-2&keywords=sennheiser+ie80

 

Product details

Number 2 is more expensive than Number 1.

 

Are these two different products?

When I pop the two links you provided I get the exact same Amazon item: IE80's for 229.99.

Looks good but I don't see on Amazon where they clearly divulge the name of the seller (shop). I would do whatever inquiries it takes to make sure that they are being sold by an Authorized Sennheiser listed dealer.
