I sure hope there was worthwhile changes to the new IE80 and not just a refresher. That will be a big letdown (I have a feeling that is exactly what it is).
Thanks for all the replies to how much IE8 was originally priced, it helps me weigh my decisions and plan.
And wow, milford, that thread sure is comprehensive, I'll have a look it when I'm free.
But somehow my preference for new toys makes still makes me really eager to have a go at the Sennheiser IE 80s when they are released.
Hopefully the people at Head-Fi will have a review of it by then
