Did anyone had troubles with the cable of this model?

I found it for a good price in Ukraine. Considering to purchase, but i am afraid that cable is not fully interchangeable.

Cable is very strong, made from kevlar. I doubt you will have any issues, just don't be too rough, but that's the same with all earphones

The problem is that previously i've had IE8 for 4 years.... 3 cables changed. And i wouldn't say that i was using it rough.

I owned the ie8 too and the cable quality is completely different between the two, although I do believe sennheiser made a mistake by not adding removable cables.

OK! Good to hear that cable is more reliable! It's a big mistake and i'm sure they will release updated model with this feature.

Do IE800 sit in the ears well? Not felling out? How much weight adds split part where you connect earphones via 2.5" jack to the cable.

 

 

 

And one more question. Have anybody seen fake ie800 ? Do they already exist?

For me they dont sit too well,after a while I need to push them back in again or they will fall out.

The sound quality is one of the best that ive ever heard from IEM but i would like to see if they can make it over-ear like some of shure models, they shud pull back the market immediately, bcoz i can't barely use it while walking, it will fall out after few mins

clip is not helping ?

I love my IE800's but they're something I only wear for "stationary" listening - mostly at my desk.  They don't seem suited to "active" listening where you're moving around a lot because of shallow insertion (at least for me) and rather significant cable noise.  I'm sure that having a shirt clip would help in that respect (I would love to find one that fits).  Even then, to me they don't seem suitable for a lot of movement.

C,ip does help while using it outdoor

What clip are you using?  I haven't been able to find one that fits the cable well.  The one I purchased from Sennheiser, thought not made explicitly for the IE800, is too small for the cable.

I borrowedthe Ie800 from a friend of mine for 2 days, I used it to work in the morning, by walking fast and vigorous movement the earbud will likely to fall out(almost) so i have to adjust every 5minutes. This is quite a big deal considering the nice sound quality but poor fit. If they certainly make it into over-ear like shure models and westone, this thing gonna be a killer. Too bad sennheiser has released them.

I use the one that was included in beats iem

As the Sennheiser doesn't need to much amp power, but most of all a good fit on detail & soundstage, I lean towards the NuForce UDH-100 or the Audio-gd NFB-10ES2.

 

Who has tested their IE 800 with a desktop DAC/AMP? Any recommendations for a 300-700 budget?
