I have purchased the Sennheiser's IE80 earphones and I would like to get some tips and ask some question.
First , I would like to say that I am pretty disappointed , I have bought this earphones about 3 weeks ago from an authorized seller for about 470$.
I expected a much better performance from those earphones , I'm not and audiophile but I have heard alot of earphones before the IE80 and it seems like those earphones give a very bad value for their price tag.
The soundstage is alittle better than the average (I expected a much wider soundstage , the soundstage is really not that big as people say) , the low end in here is nice but not as good as expected , same with the highs and the midrange is really good.
Also , a very big downside for me is that the SQ with low volume listening is not very good , I have to turn up the volume in order to get a good SQ and it really bothers me as I'm used to listening to music in low volume.
I'm listening to hip-hop mostly , I'm using the extra long MEElec tips from the M11+ tip pack , my media player is Cowon C2 , most of the songs in my music library are in FLAC format (and the others are 320kbps MP3) and I have burned in the earphones for about 50 hours , not including the time that I have used the earphones in order to listen to music.
1.I am thinking about getting this cable to improve the performance of the IE80's:
but I don't know if it will be a very dramatic change and especially if it will suit my needs (if it will be good to hip-hop)
2.I would like to hear about the JetEffect settings from the users here who got a Cowon product + a pair of IE8/IE80 as I would like to find the best EQ setting for hip-hop (those who will make an effort and post their own setting will help me alot).
Also , if anyone got any tips for me and he thinks that he can help me please post them in here.
I am so disappointed from Sennheiser this time because I have spent almost all of my money on this earphones and got a poor value as I expected a much better performance for this price.
