those are the pics you get from 90% of selling websites, official reseller or not. it doesn't tell anything about the product you will receive as it's not the actual picture of it.

The logo on the brushed steel should be a gravure not a a sticker and the bass screw should really move and the result be heared. but the package Looks ok to me,I have exactly the same.Have fun with them, I listenéd with them yesterday evening to Material´s Temporary Music 1979-1981 with Bill Laswell, and enjoyed every second of it,

I don't reckon you can tell from a photograph. Fakers are pretty smart. Reputable dealer FTW.

is the bassport test still a proper way to differ fake or genuine one?

i mean - not workin at all = fake, workin (even little changing, barely noticable) = genuine

There are fakes with a working bass port.

I got the strangest craving to get an IE80 again. 

 

Does anyone wear them straight down?

you can but then I highly recommend you use the clip for cable noises.

also just turning them down they definitly look like it's not how they should be. inverting left and right makes it look ok again but obviously sides are then inverted.

about comfort, it really depends on the tip and your ears, I personnaly feel well only with a swallow insertion, so it's not ideal as there is no over the ear cable to help keep them in place. I used some comply P foams for some times like that, the Ps being longer I still had a good fit and the comfy swallow insertion (all the above concerns only wearing them down).

Do you have any problem wearing them the usual way?

I do, I very much prefer wearing them straight down vs over ear. Just remove the earpiece, reconnect the right earpiece to left cable(and vice versa) and you won't look weird wearing them nor have problems with "inverted channel". Microphonics is almost non-existent for me too - the cable is excellent, I only wish Sennheiser made the IE800 using the same cable.

How do I change the cable? I have tried removing the stock cable but every time I try to pull it I just can't do it without using too much force, and every time I stop before I manage to disconnect it in fear of damaging something. Is there a trick to it or do I just pull until it pops off?

If you have fingernails then get two fingers w/ nails between the cable connector and the earphone body. Gently pry the connector straight away from the earphone body DO NOT twist just pull/pry staight off. DO NOT pull by only the cable. It does just 'pop' or 'snap' off.

lol I didn't actually think about swapping the cable sides when writing the post ^_^. for someone willing to use them only straight down it is indeed the best option.

You were one of the biggest fan of the IE80, why you sold it? You forgot how it sound too!

post #5520 of 7495

Yeah.. i loved the sound ^_^   but i had a small ear canal issue ( where it start to hurt) so i sold my IE80's and some of my IEM's and got down a LCD2 and a Amperior ... within the time i recovered, but yeah the weird thing is i forgot how it sound ? :/
