I'm still waiting for the deals ;), rather be patient than rush and waste money. Anyways the Custom TF10 is my next project.

Also, just because the specs are the same doesn't mean the driver is the same.  Many high end drivers have the same spec #'s.



Hmm, 

 

I contacted Sennheiser yesterday in regards to checking a registered product for my IE8's and they told me in text that the IE80 was a "cosmetic" upgrade

 

I hope they refined and improved the sound, but his word choice leads me to think there is little if any difference in the sound signature

@Vonx: missed a few pages there, did you, my friend? tongue.gif The two are noticeably different in sound, as has already been discussed.

Ah, yep i did, thats good to hear

 

it still has me wondering why the sennheiser rep said the ie80s were a "cosmetic" upgrade

Maybe the same driver so sonics differences are vent and positioning related.

£200 ?


You can buy them in Sweden for around £176 right now. They're somewhere around £180 in a multitude of shops right now in Sweden, so I don't think it's just a sale or anything like that. They just seem to be a bit cheaper in Sweden right now. This is probably a subject to change, seeing as how expensive other headphones are in Sweden.

 

I'm thinking of buying me a set of IE80's after the holidays. That is, if they can keep their price under £200 over here.

Ya, my brother is in the business and assures me it's the same driver. Certainly the implementation could change the sound quite a bit.... like that metal face-plate!

Well, I'm sure glad I didn't bite the bullet and get a pair then!

We're all nuts.... so don't let the facts sway you! I will probably buy the 80s when they hit the sales forum and try some of the Tx-500 Complys.

x2, plus let's not forget, so far no one has had the chance to compare a new IE8 to the IE80.
